Curb Stomping abuse is easy against red team in Abbey

The architecture of the red spawn camp in Abbey makes it fairly easy for a blue player to curb stomp a red player upon respawn, thanks to the kind of balcony that is above the spawn area.

Sautrack is using this trick on a regular basis and it's quite frustrating. I have 2 demos of him. In the first one, he's already invisible and spawn killing the red team, then tries to curb stomp from the balcony again. In the second one, you can watch him go to the balcony almost every time he respawns. He makes a successful curb stomp a few minutes after the start of the demo.

I don't know whether Sautrack should be given a warning (putting that aside, he's a decent player) or whether curb stomping should be limited altogether in this area of Abbey, but something should be made about this problem.

This is a huge problem in Abbey.  Blue team gets this huge advantage over red in this particular scenario.
Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

Is there any possibility of disabling special things on specific maps?
For example disabling curb-stomping only on abbey?
If yes, I think it would be a good solution :)
Otherwise we could change the spawn protection to a longer time period?

If you can jump a bit it's as same easy as in the blue spawn, because of the church and the trees at the sides of the spawn. If you get to the tress it's very to get a curb. Same for the church, 3-5 wj till you're high enough then you can curb them. You can curb a blayer at basicly every spot of the map. Thats abby.

@donna30: I honestly fail to see how curb stomping the blue team upon respawn can be anywhere near as easy as curb stomping the red team. I don't understand how one would do it at all.

not at the spawn, but usually there is some blue near the church, so if you wj a lot and fall at the right time it s pretty doable. Hpwever, it s true that it is way easier to do it on the red spawn. Not sure we can do something about it, i dont think disabling it on the map is the solutiong. sometimes you re blue, sometimes you re red. Part of the game...
time is precious... waste it wisely

Sautrack is just another annoying player.
It seems like his goal is money, and not fun (like some others).

In my opinion this is part of the game. If there are curb stompers be prepared to aim high to get em before they land.

If you remvoe things that make UrT unique you ruin the game.

What about moving the red team's spawns closer to or even behind the arches? This way people won't be able to just jump of the balcony onto the freshly spawned player's heads. It's not that hard to do.

I also thought respawn gods would prevent this kind of problems...
