Stupid votekicks bother me
So I understand if you have a really bad teammate, you want to get rid of him, and I understand if it gets too out of hand you should kick them, but sometimes people votekick for things that are just plain... stupid, for lack of a better adjective.
For example, at one point a teammate kept instructing me to wait around a corner as smoker and snag a guy as he turned the corner. I don't have a mic, and I wasn't willing to spend precious time pointing out that snagging the survivors from the FRONT at close range when they're all grouped together as a smoker is a terrible strategy, so I ignored him. Instead, I grabbed a guy and dragged him into fire, dealing much more damage than I would've if I'd just attacked the survivors head on.
The guy started a votekick screaming that I was terrible at the game, and my teammates just assumed from the fact that I had just joined and therefore had not racked up much damage that he was right and the kick passed.
Another time on carnival the survivors were going up a hill and I was a hunter. They were all paying too much attention forward for any attack from the front or sides to work, so I spawned at the bottom of the hill out of sight, lept up the hill in 2 jumps, and pinned a guy lagging behind the rest of the group. Our self designated team leader screamed that I had "Wasted time spawning at the bottom of a ♥♥♥♥ing hill" and votekicked me even after I had dealt the guy almost 70 damage in a single pin, which, albiet not fantistic, is definately not bad.
And then there's just the people who votekick anyone who joins to clear space for their friends to join. Just yesterday I connected and got kicked before I even spawned.
I understand that votekick is there to get rid of terrible players, griefers, etc, but there needs to be a way to stop idiots from using it. Any ideas?
