    pls. You get one idiot on the wall who shoots a half zombie on the roof of the building with an awp and that half zombie is on the wall with them. It's a nightmare to enforce, and ruins the map. Plus the zombies will usually bait the humans into shooting them making it worse.

      Ah, the good ole' game of hot potato.

      Too bad too many ZMs caught on nowadays.

      ****
      On a more serious note, wouldn't it be logical to restrict the Scout as well? (Seeing that the Scout has some sneaky power)

      But the scout schmidt is my favorite rifle. :[

      I don't think it's that big of an issue. Half the fun on that map is sniping otherwise you can only shoot zombies close to to the wall or on the wall, not that fun.

        There is always one and you've to deal with that idiot. How about players who are good with awp ? I don't want it to be restricted just because of one idiot.

            I don't think it's a big enough problem to justify screwing snipers out of using their favourite weapons.

              Maybe I understated what I mean when I say 1 idiot. I mean at least 1 idiot EVERY ROUND. Hell I've seen up to 5 do it in a 1 minute time span.

                Every time I spectate on that map I always see zombies trying to get themselves launched by standing on the roof. +support for this.

                Personally I think it's the same problem on zm_unpanic_pF but EVEN WORSE. Once a zombie gets launched from the roof, it's instant death for humans who just might be at the target location. I don't know if it is possible but could it work to edit headshots as regular body-hits on maps such as officespace etc? Still dealing the same damage as usual of course, just lowering the knockback.

                Reason for this is because I think it's sad that we need to ban a fun rifle to use just because of idiots/trollers who could never learn from their "Mistakes".

                I don't want to nerf awps. I just think they ruin gameplay on this map and at times unpanic.

                I hate playing officespace because when i'm actually trying to be a team player, some fucktard launches with the awp. I just wanna edit that map so there is a giant clip around the whole roof and you can only get up from the one RB location. So freaking annoying. I can't even stand to play that map anymore because of that crap.

                True, but you can't just take out the mother fucking AWP's because someone happens to launch a zombie across and kill a bunch of humans. Everyone's just going to have to face the fact the map's design makes it difficult for humans to stay alive with AWPer's.

                You're right, the map should be a goomba-stomp only map! Perfect idea!

                But if the problem is big enough, then it will have to become illegal at some point. It wouldn't affect all maps, just officespace. Sure it has legitimate uses on officespace, but they're rarely ever used for that.

                Slippery slope! I would hate to see ZM go the way of ZE and you can't use AWP on half the maps. First officespace...then unpanic...WHERE WILL IT END? TELL ME SEEKER!

                It is a pain to enforce but I don't support this simply because I enjoy using the AWP on that map. In fact, that map kinda blows and using the AWP is just about the only thing that makes it tolerable for me.

                  I don't think the maps' original intent was for CTs to fend off zombies from a bad awp shot.

                  I'm in total support of this. That's the way it works, a few people ruin stuff and we have to compensate for it due to it being unfair to others, and it is a big issue. Just because you guys may not have seen it happen as much as us doesn't mean it doesn't happen at all. Plus, it's just one map. Seeker isn't making it a point to remove it from ZM all together.

                    Don't use a fallacy as an argument. This is the only map where its a legitimate issue.

                    Fuck why are you even on here, and like, I don't see the AWP being that much of a problem on this map I mean the edge is actually pretty hard to get to if you have a big team of smart CT's which is rare but I mean a flying zombie makes everything funner and you need more skill c; So I am not really either side of this.

                    After some thinking, I have to support Seekers idea of restricting AWP on officespace. I really am against the idea of restricting it to be honest, but I know fully well what big issue this is on that map. It happens next to every single round at least one time just as Seeker claimed.

                    I've never seen a single CT holding roof of the building. Lets just block access to the roof and save the awps ? Plus, I've seen couple players getting awp boosted from ground to the wall. Roof is not the only way, you just have to go spec, and kick dem idiots.
