i use it when i know i'm going to die and i wouldn't be productive if i was still alive. offense players use it when they want to restart their next run so they can resume their position. defense uses it to get back to base so they can prepare and do their job. also i use it if i don't like the player who is trying to kill me so they don't get 10 points but only if i am for sure going to die in a second or two.

I understand the use of suicide in comp play where time is a factor and you need to get back to your position as soon as possible.In pub play there really is no call for it take your ass kicking like everybody else.

Suiciding is basically best used as a way to guarantee that you will be back at your own base with full health in 4 seconds. It is an incredibly useful tactic. While doing it just to deny someone their 10 points is frowned upon by bad players who are obsessed with getting 10 points, it is a good way to get into the practice of suiciding when you need to. So, suicide all you want. People who complain about it are just stupid. And servers that put "don't ctrl-k from a fight" in their rules should absolutely not be played on under any circumstance.

I heard suiciding is useful in competitions. Otherwise (in a pub), you shouldn't suicide in a fight right before you die. You don't really have anything to lose in a pub.

anybody who whines about ctrl-k is a newb. number 1 they should have killed you faster if they wanted 10 points. number 2 they are complaining about losing 10 points instead of laughing at the ctrl-k player especially if it was premature.

I do not use suicide, i fight to the death in hopes that i can take out my opponent before he takes me out. And even if i don't manage to take him out i will still have wounded him, making him an easier target for my teammates. And sometimes i ski away and heal myself, and then return to battle.

Whenever a defender says "There he is AGAIN! Didn't we shoot that guy? Why isn't he dead?", that's a member of Team Annoying Bastard he's talking about.

I suicide when I see no point in continuing in my current shape. Like if some gay light faggot knocks me way off my sking path, or say if I slip down the base ledge on DX with red health - no way I'm going to waste time to climb all the way back up especially when I'd just get a disc in the face as soon as I reer my ugly head over the ledge. Eg, anytime you get back in the action faster by just killing yourself than not.
I don't intentionally try to deprive people of points (if I pick a fight myself I always stick around till the end even if I know I'm going to lose), but naturally there's bound to happen some "kill-dodging" with the above philosophy.


Sometimes I also use suicide just as a quick lottery ticket trying to get another spawn location, eg midfield tower vs base on Katabatic, or if I start on the top inside floor of the Blastside base - you usually get  suited up & on your way faster by CTRL-K'ing yourself than walking all the way down to the entrance or flag room invos. etc.

ctrl-k = minus 10 points.
ctrl-k during a duel = poosie.
...and I don't care about the points.
However, if ya ctrl-k during a duel with me, you are a marked man. I won't hunt ya down 'cuz yer not worth my time, but if I ever come across ya again on the fields, I'll spank ya like the poosie ya are.  Grin

BLAZE ON!

If you're low on health and ammo and far from your base, suicide is fine...

But after I shoot you down or start to kick your ass...that's lame.  If you don't want to fight on the ground, damage yourself before flying so when your vehicle blows, you die. 

There's just no excuse for suiciding while you're both fighting on the ground...

I suicide during duels for one reason: if I kill myself right before they kill me, they will get pissed at me. Which means almost any time they see me pop over the hill, they will drop what they are doing and try to get in a little fight with me. Instead of doing something useful and helping their team, they are going to waste their time trying to kill me.

Real players Ctrl+K in Arena.
(That was a joke.)

Anyway, players should get used to people using Ctrl+K.  You don't need to pointwhore to show that you're a credit to your team.  It is very easy to score points without actually helping your team, and all but a few positions should even pay attention to their score.  This isn't Battlefield where your killing skills are on trial; this is Tribes 2, and it is your actual impact that's on trial.  One player may get 50 points for capping a flag, but he probably had help.

Of course, my view on the subject may be skewed considering my favorite gametype does not even have a personal point system.
