I just got out of a plunderball match where the opposing team somehow was able to get our ball up into their spawn to keep safe until our ballcarrier was knocked out. Can I get any confirmation as to the legitimacy of this?

Had people to do this to me on two occasions already also. Got punished by quitting the game. Not sure what the punishment for quitting is though, but I can't be bothered to deal with this nonsense.

It's completly unfair to say the least. Hopefully something can be done to prevent passes into the spawn.

Im assuming this was done with ace? his extra jumping?
If so can others reproduce? and post results?

if more proof is provided then we can prove that the spawn area isnt a closed area
and then we must ask the question
why isn't the spawn blocked from reentry to all characters,

It happens when a player jumps on an enemy or a allie to jup into spawn.

Its something that definitely needs to be fixed. However, it can be stopped if you have a team with a lot of long range skills.

Had it happen to me once and we were able to beat them 3-0 by skill killing them in thier spawn.

It's because players can stand on each others head. The ball carrier can stand on a teammates head and the teammate can boost them up into the spawn.

That sort of technique would be near impossible to communicate to an ally who doesn't know of the trick, though... Perhaps addin to the tutorial could help in that case but I still sorta feel the ball shouldn't be allowed on spawn at all.

oddilus does it by just using his skill to get up there. i dont think you can get back in your own base just by standing on a team mates head. i could be wrong. about to go test it.

edit: tested it with multiple characters. you CANNOT jump back into your own base by standing on an ally (unless its just a very specific spot on each stage that i just couldnt find). however there are other ways in such as:

Oddilus Jump Skill
Rook Teleport Skill
Ace Dash Skill

i would hope so. in the next patch presumably. if it doesnt, i may have to avoid the forums for a few days after the next patch hits until the rage dies down lol.
