Why do people 'Friendly Heavy' or 'Spycrab' in pubs?
I have no idea what is amusing about either crouch walking with a sandvich out spaming vocals or crouching, looking at the sky, spaming X+5. Why do people do this? How is this in anyway fun? I usually kick these players as 'idle', because it is for the good of the team as well as their own.

What are your opinions?

It's amusing.
Friendlies = Free Kills.

I've been to LazyPurple Servers before, where all the "friendly" idiots are.

It somehow is more boring than a lawn full of grass.
My opinion's always been who cares as long as it's not a full server. Sometimes it's just fun to ♥♥♥♥ around completely.
I don't get that stuff either >.> I mean, i've heard of a 'spycrab race'... i 'suppose' it makes sense if everyone is doing it together or something? I dunno...

It barely even makes sense on servers that are considered 'generally friendly' on their own or something, then it spreads or someone mis-understands and thinks it'll keep em from getting shot... or hell, maybe they thought it'd make someone not take them seriously so they could attack suddenly XD

People don't always wanna tryhard playing games. Oftentimes, good players will do that, because they just wanna relax from competitive scenes, and just wanna screw around in the game with friends.

Actually, being freindly can be quite fun if you meet someone that respects them, and it's better than fighting poorly with over 300 ping.

When I get bored I'll play as a modified friendly heavy. Where I don't attack anyone and just ignore them, but I still go for the objective. I usually just play like that on 2fort, surprisingly I've actually capped the intel a few times, even though I die a ton will trying to do it.

I go friendly if the game is at a total stalemate.

Only if there was a way to like comments.
If it's someone who isn't "obviously" free to play, I'm fine with it. Free to plays should be learning the game, not trying to avoid dying by saying "im frendly D:"

That, and it's enjoyable seeing some pink bearded heavy walk around with his sandvich.

The only time I actually be "friendly" incase any of you fagolas Wonderful gentlemen of the forums question my "tryhard" levels, is when I go Deadringer spy. The ♥♥♥♥♥♥ moves I can pull off to the enemy team by acting like a friendly heavy and then backstabbing them is priceless.

Sometimes, on the server I play on, everybody will stop attacking each other and just derp around and taunt kill each other or help somebody get an achievement.
Soldiers will shoot Rocket Jumper rockets, Engineers will place sentries with no ammo, Spies would do the "civilian" glitch.
Although, it's usually ends after 5 minutes when a point-♥♥♥♥♥ joins and kills everybody.

People have different ideas of "fun". I think killing people that are not even attacking is not fun because there's no challenge at all. I think "freekilling" for 'precious' points is plain stupid.
Freekilling to farm strange kills gives no honor. :P
Also, being "friendly" when the other team is winning is dumb and will highly likely just result in you dying anyway.

*I don't want to die or kill in a game about killing each other for objectives*
