Has anyone ever tried to kick you for something like this...?
Hi, this is just something I want to get off my chest. During the day I posted this discussion, I was playing a game of payload race on Hightower, for sometime things were playing out like any other game of payload where both teams were focused on getting the kart to the finish line, untill I noticed that nobody was pushing our kart so like the "team player" I was, I decided to push the kart myself with the help of an allied engineer and pyro and managed to single-handedly win the game for my team, suddenly some 15-year old guy (at least he sounds 15) on my team was demaning that I stop pushing the kart, then I thought "seriously? why the hell should I?" then continued to do the work for the next few rounds. But it got to the point where a couple of guys on the enemy team agreed and claimed that I was an idiot for doing my job and asked "what kind of idiot pushes the kart on hightower?" (w/ bad grammer) and I was thinking "the kind of idiot who wants to win of course". Once I had my fun and got bored with the server I decided to leave, but not before I notice a guy on the other team start a voteban against me with already 3 people saying yes (most likely just the guys whining about me pushing the kart) but I didn't stick around to know the end result. I left the server confused and somewhat angry, because while the insults didn't bother me, the fact that a few guys on the server tried to get me banned crossed the line. Now, I know that TF2 has a massive fanbase and of course I should expect to see jackasses like these who only care about their killcount rather than the end result and this situation isn't going to matter to me in the future, but the main reason I am writing is because I am curious if anybody else been in a situation like mine where they were getting kicked off a map that isn't Ghost Fort or Eyeduct for playing the game as it was meant to be played and I haven't found any discussions on this and I want to know what you all think.

Many people like to not push the cart in hightower, as they think that hightower is a fun map to play on.

Yeah I hate that stuff, but it doesn't happen to me on TF2 all that much... You want to know where it happens the most? Left 4 dead 2. You get kicked for the most ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ reasons ever.
I got kick for spitting at the survivors from a distance and a zombie running into it causing to fly straight into the ground. I had the most points and I was doing my thing. I asked why they are kicking and they said, "You are a pathetic spitter." I F*cking hate that ♥♥♥♥.

True, Hightower is a fun map to go around kill stuff, but TF2 has always been about doing your part for the team and on every game of Hightower I've been in someone was always pushing the kart. But I see your point, apparently Hightower has become just like 2Fort where people just go kill stuff and not even bother with the objective (much to the chagrin of those who were wasting their effort on a team that doesn't care)

It's because they're inconsiderate free-to-play scrubs who are too stupid / lazy to find a cartless TDM server for them to screw around on; so they try to blackmail anyone who doesn't want to indulge them into stopping playing the game.

You probably wouldn't've got kicked if you had hung around - there was probably a silent majority who didn't care either way - but it still sucks they tried to vote you off when they're the douches that should've been booted from the server.

Anyone who thinks that 24/7 servers, or certain maps, aren't meant to be "won" should eff off to Gary's Mod with all the other derps if they're too apathetic to go on TDM servers.
