    This should be a bannable offence IMO, but hey what can you do.

    Basically, if you add
    before your name, on the scoreboard it looks like you are dead, while in reality you are running around shooting things.

    It should probably be changed into something that can't be reproduced by a nickname change (striking out? Symbol? Darker font colour?) or prohibited by the server rules (not in developers' power)

    I'd personally prefer that it'd be something the server owner deals with, but I'm not a fan of it either.

    Because it's Unicode, anyone would be able to emulate any actual character we decide to use. It might be worthwhile to look into making it a light-grey or white color instead so it wouldn't be able to be emulated (except by unassigned or spectate, but who gives a shit then?)

    Errr...I guess this is only a problem if you're trying to revive someone or find the last infantryman, right?

    It's also a misinformation thing when a game goes SUDDEN DEATH, because you can't tell if an enemy team is actually dead and how safe it'd be to push.

    At the same time it kind of sucks that you can see how many people on the other team is alive. Why not just make alive status team view only?

    That makes quite a bit of sense.

    That is gonna make it harder to tell when I'm about to get ninja'd though. Still it certainly sounds like a good idea.

    Not everyone is blind to simple problems that can be resolved with a trivial fix. And if you don't see the misleading potential, you could at least not fling shit outside the designated forum.

    Everything is a "tactic" if you frame it right.

    the devs tried to make us believe 9mining wasnt a tactic.

    the sheer power of its tactic got it added back in

    It could also be that *Dead* is a clan tag.
