this is not a bug more of creative use of game mechanics by a portion of the population also with 40 players on a server and many many bugs how do you know for certain someone server hopped or that they didnt just farm naturally because of teh number of players, log out to fix an issue or because the server changed from day to night or to go to the bathroom or eat dinner or answer the phone or door ect....this game doesnt have a pause and they got rid of in server lobbies so if you need to do anything in real life you must leave lest you start starving and dying of thirst while afk...I don't see how they can fix this without penalizing people for responding to real life situations

Not a bug

Opinions, suggestions, design change ideas, etc., don't belong here, but rather on the forums.

It's more gamebreaking in standalone than in the mod. 30 minute timer before changing servers please.

A 10 minute 'no pickup' rule for items within 500m of your spawn point (or similar) would fix it.... right?

I reported what I consider a bug or exploit for the Devs to looks at, if i wanted to debate about the issue I would use the forums.

Edit ... Just cleared a corridor and the room at the end of it nobody there..
I sit watching the entrace to the corridor with only an empty room behind me...
Exploiters spawn in the room behind me and kill me...
I have overwatch covering the outside of the building.
Nobody entered.

10 or 30 mins timer? so you enter a server, for some reason you got bad connection, you need to leave, sense have a timer.

If you want to avoid this, play in servers with private hive, simple has that.
