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.
