So instead of crossing firepits I've noticed imps (physics mainly) starting to jump into the crate located in frogdog's pit and wait for others to get to the endzone for a pass. This makes it slightly more difficult for republic to kill their ball carrier.
As a republic ball carrier I get no such advantage, and run the ball without getting places to hide from the 5 people following me.
Just remove the crate, or add one to their side that I can hop into as well. It's kind of cheap and it's difficult enough with every imp rolling a powertech or sorc.
I know who you're talking about...
Come to think of it, I never actually stopped and realized that the crate was non-existent in the rotworm pit. Meanwhile, people that are in the pit cannot pull that person back into the pit because they're well out of LoS.
