This is a growing topic and really needs to have more spotlight (especially for gaming communities)

 

In my opinion its the gamer's fault for the reason in the poll.

 

p.s.

players are representing ALL of their gamertag

I voted the gamers. Various reasoning and in all of them it comes down to the gamer's fault. There's intentional team killing in which it's a thought out and planned kill. There's accidental in which you fire your weapon and a teammate runs in front of your shot. There's team grenade kills in which you don't pay attention or don't know the whereabouts of your teammates. Air strike team kills take the same fault of grenade kills.

 

In all of these scenarios except for the intentional team kill, the player refuses to regard their teammates being nearby or in the blast vicinity. In any real situation you would have drastic consequences for team killing or being reckless. Gladly, in video games usually you either have to start over, get booted from an online match, lose a few points, or take the damage yourself (some examples).

 

The developers strive for realism and in many cases get close, but ultimately it's the gamer's responsibility to be cautious about team killing and know where their teammates are at all times.

 

Now having said that, when I team kill, I say that I'm sorry because I'm not a military man and I'm not perfect. I never intentionally team kill. But if I get team killed and somebody did it on purpose (and I know) then I will shoot back because this is after all a game (referring to CoD4) and the most that'll happen is I lose 10 points.

I think it is the gamers fault. The developers didn't create the option solely for the purpose of intentional team killing. Accidental team killing doesn't bother me, but some people simply take advantage of it. I don't really understand the entertainment purpose in joining a game only to team kill. I guess that is what makes kids happy.

It's the fault of the game developers. Gamers take advantage of everything programed into the game, it's just like people deranking in halo 2, there's no real reason to do it, but it is part of the game, and if using things programed as part of the game, no matter how unpopular it is, they are justified to do it
