My least favorite trick order.

Is there only one marker at any given time?

So Jailbreak is a wonderful gamemode, full of exciting and very different gameplay for people of all skill ranges to enjoy alike. But the orders issued by warden often can be quite deceptive and irritating at the best of times. The order in particular I'm writing in regards to, is when a Warden says "Follow my marker" and "Follow my markers". What gets me is that as I see it the warden cannot place two markers at any given time, and therefore there can only ever be one marker. So if a warden says "Follow my marker" it would be just the same as "Follow my markers" as "markers" implies that there is multiple markers to choose from, when in reality it is the same marker only placed at a different location. I understand this order is the subject to controversy in servers. So I would quite like to finally clarify whether or not the order "Follow my marker/s" is an applicable trick order, or if the marker should be seen as a singular object at all times.

How can it be a trick order if they both mean the same thing? I feel like I'm missing domething here

What they mean is that when a Warden says "Rush to the marker I'm going to place", that means follow only one marker in that period of time, but when the Warden says "Rush to the markers I'm going to place" that means follow all the markers that the Warden is going to place.
I'm pretty annoyed by the order too, so I'll discuss it out with the other admins.

That's how it works at blw thanks to moi. I stand firm with this belief but require the input of the other admins.

So the order "get on my marker" (singular) would still imply reds must follow the marker regardless of where is placed (even if it is moved multiple times) until a new movement order is given.

The thing is, the reason i went to flux instead of blw, was the traps and the "freedom" of trick orders

I understand the pride of having a multitude of reds fall for a devious trick order, but there can only ever be one marker at any given time, so there really shouldn't be this wave of wardens using marker/markers. There's a trick order and then there's not hearing the last letter correctly and costing a prisoner their life for that round.
