Admin message at the end of round on tf4 tonight

Post by Base » Sat Jan 16, 2016 12:23 am

So an admin displayed a message that read simply "RAPE" tonight, at the end of rooftop, before it swapped to jailbreak. Now I won't get into all the politically correctness but I can't imagine that there is absolutely no one who didn't exactly want to see that, mainly because I sure as hell didn't. I know that the word is pretty common among gamers and you know that's not gonna change easily, but I'd really expect admins not to display it in big bold letters in the middle of the screen. What is even the point of that?

I was playing during this time and don't recall seeing this message. This isn't to say it didn't happen, only that I was very drunk when I started inviting people/populating the server and it's likely that other were in a similar state. That's no excuse, but I can say that no one on the server caused any trouble and I would have put a stop to any such talk immediately if I had seen it occur.

That's not the nicest thing to display full screen.
