Default Auto-teamswitch ghosting

So, i was just playing a round on Operation Archer as insurgent. It was a pretty long boring round with not much going on. Suddenly i get teamswitched to the canadians.

Then i got this following dillema:
Do I tell the team the location of unknown caches or should i just play ignorant.

Someone that teamswitches from insurgents to blufor (willingly or not) has some vital intel for the entire team, but should it be allowed to tell that team?

Poll maybe?
- Yes, share the info with the team! That's called teamwork!
- No, you should act if you don't know the locations! That's called playing fair!
- Just make your own squad and solo it! That's called 1337!



-edit-
Could also apply for FOB locations in AAS/CnC

Easy, don't tell anyone anything, and don't squadlead.

Just join a random squad, and go where the squad leader tells you to. Play completely ignorant, and let the squad finds its way to the cache.

If I get teamswitched, I wheter join a squad or make my own and go to some place I would go anyway, even if I know nobody is there. I simply pretend I don't know where the cache is So for me is...

Guys, when a new player comes, just answer his question and go on your merry way, instead of going berserk! It's THAT simple!

That would be called 1337, but i'm going to go with he ignorance. This has also happened to me in a few games.

I agree with Foxxy. If you're teamswitched and you give away cache locations, you've destroyed the point of the game mode. Half the fun is figuring out where the caches are

"umm yes, i am informant. i here to help you invading bastar-i mean friends..."

Is what i do when i'm bored out of my mind (several minutes later said squad gets steamrolled by techies waiting in ambush)

but most of the time i just keep my mouth shut and join another squad, if i have to create a squad, i just go attack the other cache for a while, then i might go for the other cache once there are some more insurgents there to defend it.

Information in the hands of a critical thinker is invaluable, information alone is simply dangerous.

It's an unwritten (sometimes written too) rule that you DO NOT reveal the cache locations or use the intel to your advantage if you have switched teams. Enforcing that rule is a bit tricky but it'll probably lead to a kick or ban on many servers if you get caught.

Also, it's just ruining the game for everyone.

Don't tell anyone, and don't go there unless the squad you joined goes there on it's own.

But this is one of those things that's pretty much impossible to admin I'm afraid.
