    Please please please add barriers to the spawn teleports up in the skybox on Bottiger's Idle so we don't endlessly spawncamped. This has happened numerous times and no one has bothered to report it. Maybe add a rule against spawncamping too? If not that, please add barriers at least.

    Additionally, donors (although I do not know if this is against the rules) have repeatedly entered the spawn and started spawncamping as a heavy with a rocket launcher.

    Here's an example (of the spawn teleports leading to spawncamping):


    Please edit the map or make a rule ban against spawncamping. Thanks much.A

    Also, no idea why all of them have crits. I only know Certified Cunt does cause he is using his donor to have a boosted direct hit as a heavy.

    No. This is how the map is designed and I do not intend to change it.

    You designed it to be camped? That's horrible.

    Here's a solution,

    Play brass beast heavy and camp the spawn campers.

    Why do I feel theirs a soviet Russia joke to be made here?

    Steam:
    Can't camp the campers when your being hit by donors who can change their weapon to a faster direct hit and play heavy.

    There are plenty of methods to counter and avoid spawn camping. It's an achievement/idle/trade server, if you don't like being spawn camped, fight back, or use one of the alternate exits.

    We literally can not fight back. Did you even watch the video?

    I did, that does not change anything. Idle has been this way for years, no reason to change it. Its why people love awesomebox

    There no team limit in idle, so you can just swap teams to avoid this.

    Team limit has been enabled on Idle for some time now, maybe a suggestion to turn it off would be ideal.

    I'd be happy with this idea if it happened instead of the one I posted especially considering half of blu team left so we couldnt swap.

    -1 i'm one of those people who likes to spawncamp and rtd into the enemy base whenever i'm on. plus what i'm gunna say doesn't matter, but i'm not a donator so i do it anyways at the skybox

    here's one thing you could do while you can't exactly get out. try to do rtd/roll the dice. the best one would be god mode and you have to rapidly hit it before dieing instantly. but anyways someone has done it before, and gotten the spawncamping to a end. you just got to be patient enough to get a good rtd or just fight back somehow.

    anyways adding a barrier to the teleporters would just make it pointless to have them up there. only thing you could do by then would be engy nest with a lot of snipers and that's it. it's like whenever you remove the teleporters you remove the fun out of killing people in their spawn and them trying to get back at you. then they start building against the spawncampers.

    also here's one thing if you can prevent the people to spawncamp before it happens. take out the teleporter at the skybox. that's how it usually starts. for me people always know when i'm on there's no teleporters up there cause i'm up there always lol.

    last thing to mention just keep an eye up at skybox. before entering into a team, i always hit space and left click to look around of how people are like of right now and once i get a baring then i join a team and wait out for right time of spawncampers or just rush it out and hopefully don't get hit (then again i'm always cloak and dagger spy so i get by easily) i then hurry up to get to skybox and just stay up there to get rid of anyone ready to set stuff up at skybox.

    -1 Having played this map way too much in the last 3 years changing the skybox entrances to spawn would ruin this map its what makes this map.

    Yes, I hate getting pinned in my spawn by the other team but you just have to fight your way out and yes doners can be killed.

    There are many ways you can escape and get revenge. For example, try typing RTD or using dead ringer.

    The map was carefully designed to support spawn camping and escaping spawn camping. It is a major mechanic of the map and will not be removed.

    If spawn camping was not allowed, the server would be much more boring.
