Is podding a player technically considered a Kill?

yes, and it counts as a death if the game has death limit.

Ok, I was just thinking to about Corbo if the offensive player is also Podded or SD'ed from the player they just podded or SD'ed, does that go as a kill toward the defensive player as well?

it still counts as a death for the person that was corbo bombed, but i wouldnt exactly call it a "kill" for the defensive player

Corbo...

Kills aren't added to the player record, they're added to the ship record (you can see them
on the I screen). So when your ship blows... so does the kill count. Thus while some people
may count that as a "kill" it isn't 'credited' to anything for you. It does, however, count
as a death against the offensive player in a death lim game.

If there is ever an Award given for most pods in a death limit game then Space Ghost would win it hands down for his performances in WTC 2000 and WTC 2001...in one of them he must have taken about 100 pods (maybe more)in a 10 death limit edit! Final death MUST be #SD# else you take your licking and KEEP ON TICKING!
