    The team at Epic announced that in a few weeks, they will bring out the third patch fixing a lot out things, and including standby-ers as i quote, "I did mean that person won't get to play. However, I did write some special standby punishment code for the people that do it post TU3. They will be sad." Will there be anyway to overcome this?

    The only way to punish someone who does standby is to automatically lag them out when they standby, or ban them. I really don't see any other way how they are going to go about this problem.

    ye, but, i guess the only glitch u would be able to get away with by doing standby is making the other team spawn without weapons, as it is a common glitch so you couldnt be blamed

    actually i've already figured it out by doing my own testing. they just don't count the match that you stand by in, you can still get host with standby and still have it count for you, but if you standby during the game no matter if you win or how many kills it won't count on your record, trust me, i've tried it out already.

    How did you try it out? and does that mean we can only make ourselves host and not do any other standby? What about forcing other team to have no weapons? because thats before the game starts, not during

    I guess they can do that, but it's kind of a waste of time.

    because i played about 4 wingman matches, all of which i flicked my lag switch on during the match while i was hosting and none of the stats counted. i checked after the match me and my wingman both had the same stats in all 4 matches that i flicked the switch on. then we played 3 matches without flicking the switch during the match and the stats added to our records.

    you see, i don't know about the part about forcing the team to have no weapons because i've just started doing this standby for host thing. BUT all i know is that you can't standby during the game.
