    Oh, I see. I didn't think of the complications, of course. If squad channel were coupled to local, there would be other issues as well, such as the positioning of the local channel being overwritten by squad channel. Not to mention the possibility of people switching altogether to TS.

    At the same time, we could see an interesting developments such as squads resorting to speak in codes, or languages other than English.

    That said, the whole thing could be proposed as an experiment, a pact among gentlemen of sorts, seeking to maximize fun and appealing to sportsmanship not to circumvent or exploit it.

    In the worst case scenario, I would totally be down for it if, as you said, people would end up using local just for taunting/tricking the enemy.

    It would make it possible to take hostages, etc. Or small peace pacts where each side retrieves the wounded

    Have played with 1Mumble before, it was great when two of us where holed up in a t buiilding as ins on fw, with us outside shouting us to come out with our hands up.

    Only problem was dead players shouting over local to hide their teammates movements. But if that could be covered by admins or mumble closes when dead, would be great for role playing.

    Sounds fun. In these 1-life events this could lead to people actually surrendering not to get killed and thus kicked from the match, and also to the need to escort prisoners to captivity, maybe some escape/rescue attempts... :biggrin:

    This is what I meant by appealing to sportsmanship -exploiting it on purpose like that would be lame. But tbh in these 1-life events this wouldn't really be an issue since the server automatically kicks dead players. On the other hand, critically wounded players could still do that. Although it would affect both friendlies and enemies (not sure if it would be helpful), and in any case would probably increase their chances to get 'naded so they go dead-dead.

    Dead peope saying "it's clear, come revive me", leading to traps is not really fun and checking if the guy talking is on your team can get you killed aswell.

    I was wondering what if there are 3 mumble channels, squad, team local, and global local. And different color too.

    Somehow I got disconnected, not a connection problem, not a kick, it just basically removed me silently for no obvious reason, and there is no one to give up his spot for me as I am suppose to be one of the hostages which is one of the event's priority, hope you all had fun, really disappointed about this :frown:
