    CTF: How do players manage to communicate during game and still survive?

    I get fragged in most cases when trying to send a message during a deathmatch (Q3A).
    What's the best way to do it?

    I have messages bound to keys for Q3A CTF.

    Affirmative, I'll defend the flag, Going offensive, Enemy FC spotted here, Enemy FC leaving LOW, Enemy FC leaving HIGH and a few others.

    Actually, I have these bound to buttons/hat on the joystick so I rarely have to touch the keyboard during CTF(I use a joystick/mouse combo).

    Yep binding keys is pretty effective for most cases.

    Thanks for the input!
    Is FC = flag carrier? What does HIGH and LOW mean?
    Games like TFC must have more complicated messages (because many diferent player types and more complicated tactics)? How is it done there?
    Thanks again!

    My favorite way to play TeamFortress (the original, not this "Classic" junk) was for all of my teammates to play on the company T3 in our offices with each player calling one other player, and each person to answer and turn on his speakerphone... in this way, we all had perfect, hands-free communication with all other members of the team! Complete tactical domination, baby!

    So, now all you have to do, is get you and all of your friends hired at a software company that will give each of you a private office, and won't mind you using their facilities for beer-soaked deathmatching and CTF sessions into the wee hours! Simple!

    When you're typing a message in Q3A, a text box or something will appear on top of your head.

    Out of courtesy or some unwritten rule, you're not suppose to blast him. Ofcourse, some punk will try to get cheap shots. More exp. players knows better to just move on.

    Yeah, I hate that! I hunt them down exclusively when they frag me while chatting.

    If you're playing with someone named Huge, you're not suppose to blast him. You're suppose to go behind him and switch to your gauntlet. After he's done typing, you can clobber him with your gauntlet for a humilation kill.

    Sorry to change the subject a little but I just love getting up top on "Deck16", (UT online), with the sniper rifle, I must really piss people off as I get head shot after head shot

    I evenually get a Redeamer sent in my direction but you can take then out with the sniper rifle. I set auto chat as I'm not good enough to even think about talking

    BladeRunner, please let me know when you are playing UT so when you get up on that ledge on Deck16 you'll keep wondering where the person is that keeps popping you in the head.

    P.S. Did I mention that I LOVE when people get on that ledge.

    Oh, I also communicate with my friends via RogerWilco. I have a headset with a mic and when I want to transmit I hit my left mouse button. It is just plain sweet!

    Oh ya one more thing...Blade, weren't you an avid QIII player?

    Yes you are correct but my "new" totally free ISP for some reason favours UT over Q3? Just can't seem to get a lag free Q3 game anymore. Ut plays ok most of the time but I'm still at a disadvantage with a ping between 250 & 300 most of the time

    There are those that hide in the dark area near the steps with a rifle and shoot you when you are on the ledge, so I send some bullets down there from time to time when I see red I keep shooting he he he

    Also people send flak cannon rounds up at you which is disappointing....... It don't work everytime but when it does it is so funny....HEAD SHOT......... BladeRunner is on a killing spree .
