What exactly is defensive stealing, in what situations is it allowed, and like, overall, wot.
There are a couple of instances where you can defensively steal, but mostly if a team mate behind you leads the rocket towards you, you can steal it to avoid getting team killed. If a team mate is intentionally trying to teamkill you by orbiting the rocket close to you, you can steal it as well. Essentially it’s okay to steal to counter rule-breaking from other teammates.
Quoting the current rules found here on the forums:
"Additionally, going over to the enemy's side ("crossing") is a risk you choose to take.
If you do not leave enough space for your enemy and they are forced to steal, it’s not their fault; it’s yours.
When an enemy crosses to your side, keep in mind that this is not forbidden in itself and is something you have to accommodate for."
In conclusion to any situation regarding what qualifies a steal, it's the administrator's duty to judge the nature of the offense.
Here is a little something from a guide I've been working on for a while:
Spoiler: creative spoiler title
Offensive stealing is when a player has crossed to the enemies spawn side of the map, and stands too close to the enemy player.
This should always result in a slay, even if "it was coming right at me."
Defensive stealing is when a player is standing on their spawn side of the map, and an enemy player is standing too close to them.
While it is generally okay to steal the rocket if it's too close to you on your side of the map, this doesn't mean you should be going out of your way to do so.
Aggressive stealing can be a combination of offensive and defensive. You can be frozen in place and still be aggressively stealing.
This is when a player has to go out of their way to steal. They can be a statue, or a rocket chaser. If they have to aim over their head, or off to the side, it's aggressive.
Passive stealing is much less common, but is still something you should be aware of.
This is when a player is in the exact path of the rocket, and simply reflects to save themselves.
Thank you for the answers guys. Very helpful. ( :
