    Why you cant callvote during the match anymore???

    So many games where ruined by AFKers in CA, because you cant kick them. It seems you could callvote during the match earlier , but not anymore, at least on most servers.

    Callvoting during the match was never allowed on public servers.

    It is an option that can be enabled with start-a-match servers. You were playing on a user spawned server when you were able to callvote during the game.

    Thanks for info. But isn't it stupid? Just quit from another CA where 1 player was AFK. I hate it.

    Callvoting during the game opens the door to an enormous amount of abuse.

    So while yes it can be nice when used responsibly, it is generally a very bad idea to have it activated on pubs.

    Can you give me example? I mean majority of players have to f1, so it isn't easy to abuse. Just now we played 2v2 CA, then 3rd joins, we asked him to spec, he said lol no. Ruined the match. I am so tilted...

    Actually it is very easy to abuse.

    Shuffle vote passes, screws up the teams and the result.

    Excessive kick vote spam, cointoss, map changes during the game aborting it, etc. All it takes is a troll and a couple players who don't care about having a proper match to destroy things with voting enabled during the game. Also one player can spam votes to prevent other votes from being called.

    That sucks, and so I always try to call a vote for the teamsize I wish to play on.

    Another nice solution is just to have a friend with pro spawn a server, and they as admin can stop any such nonsense by moving the player to spec, locking the teams, and/or kickban.

    This is a non sequitur.

    I suggested that allowing voting during the game on public servers was a bad idea. That is all.

    I disagree. I have seen all these abuses, and its nothing compared to things regularly happens in no-callvote games. Shuffle during game sucks, but it passed just 1 time I remember, and that was when I pressed f1 somehow. 99% of time stupid callvotes were reflected in a couple of seconds, also troll could be kicked from the game.
    Also I think id software could make some good changes, such as not allowing to spam callvote, not allowing shuffle during games, etc. Some common sense and easy changes to make life easier, but it seems they don't care.

    It could be limited to teamsize and kick for callvotes during the match, that would help.

    A strong delay on how many votes a person can call during the game per time period would help too.

    That would be worth testing.
