Please, before replying, read the whole post and try to understand my point of view on this whole thing. Yes, I'm bringing this up once again. Rule 13 on the ZE server states "Do not hide important map items. This means you can not hide materia (Mako Reactor) or other items in order for humans to die on purpose. You're welcome though to hide them from spammers". As you all may or may not know, I'm not big fan of this rule. First off, a 'materia' is not required to win the map and doesn't come with instructions which says where and how you must use it when picked up. I think it's wrong to assume that when someone goes hiding with a materia they want the whole team to die in order to make the win somewhat 'epic', this is rarely the case. Let's say someone who knows how to use materias has one but dies on the way, if that's not considered griefing, why does hiding? He let his team down by dying, subtracting one materia or 'important map item', maybe he died on purpose, who knows? Now, say the human/zombie ratio is 1:5 at the final part of the map (10 humans, 50 zombies) where you need to hold the zombies for 35 seconds in order to make it, most of you like me would agree that the humans would be doomed at this point and should just surrender, BUT, say one of the ten people left has a materia and knows a way to win, why not go for it, right? It's not like he can tell every human to do exactly what he plans as it does take some skill. So instead of just standing there awaiting death, why not give it a chance? The others would of course die, they all would either way but you can't really blame the materia user for not extending their 'lifetime' by a few seconds for actually trying to win. Plaguefest is the only server with this rule in place, it just doesn't make any sense. Some people do go hiding when the humans actually does have a chance as a team but I don't see that happen very often anymore (outside of PlagueFest). Why do we have to punish people using materias in this particular way? Is it really necessary to limit the maps gameplay like this by having the rule in place? That is all. Thank you for reading.
