    I can't seem to get this one to happen to me, no matter how long I let them live and allow them to ready up a catapult.
    Were you perhaps lagging at the time?

    I don't remember any lagging. I do not approach the engineer positions from the front so there "shouldn't" ever be a time that I am in the catapult's field of fire so it wouldn't be that I took a shot before I got up there and then died. This also happened after a couple minutes of fighting at that location. This one has only happened once and I had to go back in the log to see what killed me since it was so unexpected. I was directly behind the catapult and engaged with a siege engineer when I died for no apparent reason. The other engineer had run up to the catapult and apparently shot me with it. I didn't see him do it because I was facing directly away from the catapult toward the tents, but I knew his general location.
