    People are abusing the kb on the knife in ze. I have seen some players on some occassions knife zombies onto humans, and they are ruining the game for everyone. It is also hard to see who did what to enforce a rule agaisnt it. And unlike zm, knifing a zombie onto humans affects large numbers of people. I believe that it should be removed.

    Reducing it makes it still possible to abuse it.

    Just reduced knife knockback multiplier to normal gun knockback - 1.0. It was at 4.5.

    Aw come on Google - I'm not an avid zombie-knifer, but I always laugh when I see this happen. It also doesn't happen very often - only on very open maps like unpanic and roy_highway. And even then, it is a rare occurrence since most humans want to shoot zombies, and most zombies want to kill humans.

    I do agree that it should not be used on atix for early nuke, however. While it is funny and all when everyone yells "WTF" because they got nuked out of nowhere - knifing a zombie up there is a blatant exploit of the map / game mechanics (knife knockback) and should always be enforced as illegal.

    Depends if they're actually working with the zombies or not, like if the zombie knows the human is doing it and the zombie isn't getting the human. If they're just doing it for fun (and risking becoming a zombie) and they so happen to launch one into another human (on accident or other), then that's a different story.

    Saw this being done on ZM rarely and usually without wanted results (launched zombie kills humans).

    Unintentional griefing? It happens occasionally and while I hope people feel bad about it (I do), I can't help but laugh because it's hilarious to get a result you didn't expect that affects a different band of humans when you meant to send the zombie somewhere else. Damn trajectories and physics... :razz:

    Actually come to think of it, I think a game of dodgeball involving teams of humans launching zombies into each other would be awesome. Have teams divide up into squads that stand on large moving platforms and have the zombies stand somewhere around the edge to be launched at other squads. While how to keep score or label victorious squads is beyond me, I think this could be an interesting variant of ZM. :grin:

    Edit: Not trying to change topic, just thought of something as I replied.

    We already came to the decision that knifing zombies is OKAY on ZM (Except on ATIX since glitching the nuke = glitching = against the rules = ban) but most of the admins agreed on keeping it for ZM and making it legal.

    This topic is about ze and nothing else and has been solved. As penguin said the above issues has been discussed already. Please lock.
