Text warnings can go unrecognized in the heat of battle. There's nothing better than good ol' admin slap or admin slay to get immediate attention. :D

To quote the Anti TCC manual about these seemingly rarely-used commands:
Admin slap/kill commands
Anti TCC allows admins to slap or kill players via console commands. Available commands are:
  • Slap – Slaps the specified player once for 10 points of damage. Slapping kicks a player out of vehicles and turrets.
  • Kill – Kills the specified player with the "best" method available. Outdoors this is either "toast" or "strike", indoors it's usually "blowup". This command never selects "slapkill".
  • RandomKill – Kills the specified player with a random method as listed below.
  • Toast – The specified player is killed by a laser beam fired from an orbital satellite. This only works after an Ion Painter was used or the map originally contained an Ion Cannon satellite.
  • Strike – The specified player is struck by lightning. This only works outdoors or at least requires considerable room above the player.
  • BlowUp – The specified player explodes spontaneously.
  • SlapKill – The specified player is slapped again and again until he or she dies.
Neither of these methods will damage other players directly. Note that vehicles exploding as a result of a kill might still hurt other players, though.
The player can be specified the same way as in the WhoIs command, but additionally you can also specify bot names if you want to try it out on an otherwise empty server.

Thanks, Wormby, I had a lot of fun trying them out on a volunteer yesterday. :D
We tried the "toast" one on Grit, but sadly it didn't work.

Do you know of any way to extend the duration the text warnings will be shown? I've been told by several players that they disappear too quickly, especially if it's a longer text.

The way the DW server is set up.

A "slap" message is right in the middle of the screen and you have to click "ok" to get rid of it to ..continue the match.

I know there's at least one stock map containing a placed ion cannon satellite, but I can't emember which one it was. It definitely works on maps like CTF-Magma or DOM-SeppukuGorge. Also, whenever a stock Ion Painter triggers an ion blast, it leaves behind a spawned ion cannon satellite over the target area. The victim must be in view of such a satellite, which may be hard to determine, as the satellite itself is invisible.

Severance, as far as I recall - though "BlowUp" sounds just great... x)

Ps: good to see you're still around, Hyden :)
