    Sooooo just thought I'd let everyone know that currently, specs can receive kill points. I was recently in a match and someone from Blue team changed to spec mode but had laid down some spikes before he did. When a Red ran into the spikes and died, the former Blue player (now a spec) still received a kill point. It appeared as a grey name killing a Red name in the kill feed display up top. I later confirmed the bug with NathanTheMethodical. I laid down a spike as a Blue team member with him also on Blue team (building time). I then switched to spec-mode and had him kill himself with the spike I placed before I switched. Sure enough, I got the kill and it appeared as a grey name killing a Blue name (quite epic I know, killing someone from the ether). I'm not sure if this was intended (probably not) or if it is a new glitch that appeared recently. Either way, I'm too lazy to post about this in a bug report section or anywhere else so feel free to move this post or reply to it or whatever. I cannot supply a screenshot of the incident because when I do a print screen, it gives me a screenshot of my desktop o-o.

    You could resume that by "You can get a kill for killing someone as a spectator".
    I don't think that's a bug anyways. But this can be removed (including using a mod) easily.

    In a server with a very low population, perhaps. It would normally be too devastating to defenses if the attackers swapped to builder when they reached them. You would have to tweak the game a lot, I think, to make this feasible.

    Ok. 5 archers climb over a huge defensive wall, switch to knight, kill some people using their height advantage, builders claim land. Makes defences pointless, archers can climb because they are useless at claiming land, knights just walk on by.

    That could be a problem unless something is done to limit all classes that are switched via the quick select in comparison to if they do it the normal way, but I'd not know HOW to limit climbing without making it sort of useless for archers.

    Anyone else having it be where, on every server you go on, you can't start a vote, and no one else on those servers can vote either.

    You can only start a map vote very 10 minutes now if that's what you mean - goes for the whole server.

    Oh, I think I had that problem on Black Death servers - I assumed they didn't let newly unbanned players vote but maybe it's the same problem.

    BTW, in tdm (mostly) when you get a kill sometimes it will show your name, but not the other person on the death gui. Anybody else having the same thing?

    The archer's speed has been reduced (while charging arrows), although he does have his grapple allowing him to move around areas faster than all the other classes.

    I don't think the other classes movement speed has been reduced though.
