To me the honor system is a waste. Theres only two reasons why they have the honor system. 1) To stop TK. No matter what they do theres people that will still TK, they dont give a rats a$$ about there honor. 2) To get people to play the game more. Honor has nothing to do with skill. Some people have 20's honor and really suck at the game. Honor has to do more with how much time you play the game then do good at the game. There should be no honor system.

I had a honor bug and my honor was always 10... I sometimes got 30 something kills on POW rescue and Pipeline... It pisses me off that people refered to me as a newbie (noob) and they still do thx to that stupid honor! If they wanted a way to show how good a player is, instead of how often they play, they could have a system based on kills and goals on average! :deal: :bows: :smack:

Its perhaps not greatest system but no system will ever be perfect there will always be ways to adjust stats in someone favor.

I.e kills/death ratio could be altered by killing 20 people while playing defense and then never getting killed and just hiding giving a good ratio but being ineffective in reality.

Honor has killed the game, NO BODY uses teamwork accept for the occaisional people all because of the honor system. It has made people play a select few maps that give you the most points. They have taken it too far with the honor system I rekon. So I hardly ever play now. :mad: :cya:

I haven't seen any less teamwork since the honor system came in ther has always been a big lack of it, as for few maps being played, i think that is down to the fact that some maps do require good teamwork and if you get a bad team you get fed up quite quickly and tend to not play that map again, Soem of the airbourne maps are good if played as a team but when played disorganised they suck majorly.

I take little note really of my honor (cept to keep it above 10) more bothered by my kills/death ratio and total roe scores.

OK here we go. I personaly think that the honor system is a good idea... granted they include your over all performance based on your position. They have already implamented that with the leader rolls and you do gain honor with kills wich I must say is a step up from the last version. If you ask me Snipers should gain honor by their shot/kill ratio. I am sniper as much as I possibly can. Because of that and the fact that I have a life, my honor is only 20. If I actualy got credited for my kills (90 some since they started tracking it, mostly one shot one kill) I would have honor out my you know what. That is the performance indicator for a sniper. Kill so that you team mates don't get killed, and accuracy has a big roll in acheiving that mission. This way some shmuck that is leader every round or plays 24/7 and decides he wants to be sniper and sucks as sniper,won't get the possition. I know everyone wants to really know what it is like to reach out a touch someone but while they are showboating around and reloading every 10 seconds I could be picking off opfor like crazy. They need a new way of awarding snipers and allowing good ones to stay in the sniper possition as much as possible, or letting your team mates see your shot/kill ratio and let them decide. Personally if I see someone with a 100/75 ratio opposed to 200/50 I would go for the guy that only misses a quarter of the time. And then there is me with a good estimate of 115/90. Not trying to toot my own horn but I just like to raise the bar a little for those snipers out there that can't cut it. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it... and if you really want to verrify my credentials end up in my crosshairs... I'll be glad to show you first hand PEACE!!!

no wait that would put me out of a job!

I'm gone!

Well, what I HATE is this...read for the best example I've seen all day.

Bridge-Defence Side, weapon choice for M24 sniper rifle 5/1

Who got it? Well...A guy with 5 honor (yes, FIVE), who TKed last round for a -240 current score, no kills. He got it over the other 4 people, all of which had 15+ honor and many kills and points.

What the HELL is the point of the honor system if it doesn't at least mean something? If I have 15 honor, and he has 5...why does he get the sniper and I get the m16? Its this way with every weapon.

Oh yeah, remeber our 5 honor friend? Ya know what he did? Purposely jumped off the cliff to kill himself, cause he was just there to ruin our chances...he did well.

Fix the honor system or GET RID OF IT! :fistpunch: :spank: :assimilate: :mepimp: :furious: :furious:

yeah zenn, i was there;)

made the assaults job much much easier

however, i hate the fact that i was on the whole time with zenn (opfor and his side) NEVER moved my choice from sniper (m24) and checked the "avoid leader" box. how many times did i get the m24? 0, zip, nada. that and it gave me leader most of the time...

however i did pry the m24 from someones dead hands, sniped 3 people and it took it away from me. wooohooo:fistpunch:
