Major Exploit -> Free Elo

Postby SairesArt » Thu Nov 06, 2014 1:08 pm

while making a new Dr.Nitpik writeup with tons of mapping bugs, I found by accident, that you can force draw a match.
If you bind Kill to a key and press it before the timer starts, it kills you but the match does not stop, as it didnt start yet.
So you stay a corpse, until the round ends in a draw.

Meaning, you can get yourself a good player, top 100, or with a <0.5 win prediction and force draw the match, thus gaining free Elo, and the opponent losing elo. (or ragequitting because of the 3*90 seconds waiting period)
I have not yet seen this one used in any match by anyone.

Solution: Either force the death event to always be a loss, or fix the dead state not reading before round start.
