This shouldn't be surprising, nor should it be surprising that it only
came up late in a game's competitive lifespan, since newb teams that no
one has heard of are the only people who will pull this stuff, to try to
win newb matches that no one cares about except themselves ;).
Either way, there are settings that can be changed "on the fly" without
restarting the current map on the bf'42 server, possibly bf:v server as
well since they're similar. No need to mention what they are, suffice
to say that they are plenty to affect the outcome of a match.
Any setting that affects gameplay should require a map restart to take
effect. If there's a reason for settings to be changed on the fly,
changes to server settings should be broadcast to all players when
they're made. The reasons are pretty obvious, it's not feasible to
constantly query the server to make sure the game's settings are not
being changed on you while you're playing.
