Our bot rules were listed here: http://forums.vofpro.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=806
Yet we had an announce message in game telling that this kind of behave may be bannable. We have changed our politics since that time. No one is banned for that anymore. If it’s possible by game mechanics then it is allowed.
Acorn bombs are overpowered and Jesse admitted that here http://forums.vofpro.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=799, so it was kind of temporally solution since we are not doing any “hotfixes” (unless it’s a beta test) and I wanted to prevent people from overusing OP things.
You may play any style of gameplay now, there is no chance for you to get banned for that anymore, don’t worry.
As Tonex said, we are currently discussing ways to improve our bot and its rules. We would like to automate players control over the game, bot has !votekick feature already, maybe we will add something else as well to give people more control.
But no matter what we decide, if players have chances to be punished for something, we will announce it both in game and on forums.
Thank you for the info!
I agree that the acorn bombs are overpowered especially in the early stage but carving knife delay helped deal with that a bit since it gives players time to prepare for such strategy if they suspect it although this is not as important because my post was directed at the rules not the balance of the map itself. I'm sure with time the developer(s) will find even better way to deal with it. Thank you for your answer and clarifying things. Glad to be here.
