    I find it annoying, and other people who have experienced this probably also find it annoying, is ghosting. If you're in a game of Egg Wars, SG, etc. and its down to 2 or 3 people, and then some person decides to say (usually to their teammate) "hey dude, [insert IGN here] is coming up from behind you! he has no gear! you can kill him!" and then the person kills you. I think this should be mutable/bannable EDIT: and when the person who was ghosting thinks its a good idea to make fun of you, like in this screenshot )you dont see where i died though, but when i did, he made fun of me for "bow spamming" ANOTHER EDIT: nvm i cant show screenshots because of my computer

    Ehm I don't think it should be mutable or bannable in a Team Game if you died you should help your team mates out... So that they still can win... Also this can easily be bypassed by someone using Team Speak or Skype... Also some people use the ./tell command and then you cant report them :/ because its a private conversation... Easy to bypass :p

    yes thats true, but since theyre dead, they shouldnt be able to help, since theyre dead, and the teammate should do what he/she needs to to win, and people who say it in global chat should be punished.

    of course they should that's why its called Team mode :p Also in some games after you died its not possible to talk in [Team] only global and people are lazy to do ./tell that's why they keep chatting in global...

    I don't see what the issue is.

    It's undoubtably bypassable, and I don't see it as a big deal anyways. Sometimes, one guy is hiding in an impossible location and the teammate spectates to find them.

    If this is the case, a spectator doesn't need to help. In game people have access to a compass for EggWars and SkyWars. I know lucky islands doesn't, but I think they are fixing it.

    Survival Games doesn't have player trackers unless you have kit...
    Also Spectators could help their team mates by also doing other stuff xD
    Ehm and he isn't talking about spectators finding Campers he is talking about lets say spectators telling their team mate that someone is coming or something :/

    A staff member will tell you the same, it can't be implemented as it can be easily bypassed on Skype and other chatting device.
    This is a game and real life logic may not always apply here. Yes ghosters are annoying and they can ruin your strategy (like if you're sneaking up on them) but we learn to deal with it.

    Yeah, I said it can be bypassed not only on skype but on
    as well. ;)
    Most common would be teamspeak and discord I guess.

    Regardless if it can be bypassed or not, would still help a lot by blocking communication between alive and dead players.

    Even if it would help... There would be a lot of complaint and problems... Likes players not been able to tell who killed them and how... If they have hacks or not or just say GG after the game really :/ Also you wouldn't be able to talk with your friends after dead ;-;

    That may solve the ghosting issue but what if the alive players starts swearing, you being dead and having the communication blocked, won't be able to warn them in chat (which is needed to report a player) so another problem will rise up.

    Why should it be bannable? You can just kill them...

    Thank you. That's exactly what I mean, if we can block any communication between a spectator and player, we should.

    This is the best reasoning I've seen so far.
    Are you suggesting hackusating? "tell who killed them and how... If they have hacks"

    I know that ghosting sucks, I deal with it a few times, but there really isn't anything that can be done. If it's obvious, I might suggest we kick the dead player from the game, but even then, that's not something that can happen if there isn't a staff member in the game.
    Anyways, it only happens once every now and then, so it's not a big deal. Sometimes you can even use their ghosting to your advantage. Make them think you're doing something, then pull a plot twist on em and do something completely different B)
