Ok, so here's a suggestion that I'm not really completely sure about myself: how about removing the whole score system or leaving just the points for capping flags ? I mean I really like what BF2 did with the scores to reward support troops, medics or even commander, but still that leaves some important functions out, eg. arty spotters (http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=266049), drivers taxiing troops to battlefield, soldiers defending back flags, etc. So I was just wondering if the idea of removing all the scores could positively affect the teamplay, get rid of campers, statmongers and stuff like that (of course, for the cost of that warm fuzzy feeling when being rewarded with a medal).

Ps. Hello FH community, God bless the devs for this übermod

In my opinion, no-one should get points for killing. Supporting actions such as repairing, healing and capping flags should still give someone points.

I disagree. Only with the killing part. I understand the need to emphasize teamwork, so I say increase the point system. So what if people wind up with 200 points per game. For instance. Say give 1 point for killing and more points for the other stuff. I dont see how awarding points for repairing and healing will not be abused though. I can see people tanking shots at one another and then healing eachother for points as they wait for the next aircraft to spawn.

As there will be no ranking system anyone cares about (not ingame, probably only outgame for e-peen stimulation) i don’t see this kind of "stat padding" happening on any respectable servers. Also, I don’t want people to try and "win" a game by finding the best camping spot with some powerful vehicle and rake in the kills. Flags should be a players first objective, by not awarding people points for kills, they will be motivated to do move to a flag if they are indeed score orientated (god knows a lot of the bf2 types are).

I don’t see a downside, you are not a scorewhore..are you?

Edit: scuse me for the strange font.

I dont see any point to get rid of anything really, like he said above, there is no ranking so why need points, its just erased after the match so there is no need for any changes at all in my mind, its not like people remember who got what by the next map is over.

I have a better idea! When killing someone, you should get as many points as the one you killed, has killed themselves. So spawnraping wont do any good because you wont get any points, and the bounty will risen on you.

So.. if you kill an enemy that has 0 kills, you wil get 0 points, but if you kill an enemy that has 10 kills, youll get 10 points.

As for ranking.. Time based ranking! Put it in damnit! It will attrakt so many more people! And the people will play longer to get higher ranks! No way of exploiting. Youll have rank according to how experienced you are with the game.

wha wha WHAT! MEEEE?!?!? A scorewhore! Hell yeah b!tches! My e-peen is massive my friends! :lol: No seriously, I am suggesting that MORE points be awared for the other stuff. Killing the enemy actually CAN help the team you know! Seriously I know I talk alot of crap, its more humor then truth. And I love talking crap, especially when you are around, Raptor! Only because I know you have so much interest in teamplay. Truth be told I have teamplay in mind first and foremost. But MAN is it awesome to have a 10:1 KD ratio. I'll admit it. Besides, that 10 enemy tickets to one friendly is helpful, no? Someone has to provide cover fire! But I am the one who will go back and cover the empty flag and defend. I will gladly sacrifice myself and the grasshopper to detroy a Tiger and above! I am the guy who backtracks to open holes in barbed wire for after we lose the flags the way will be much clearer. I stop to heal and fix. I will operate the elevators for pilots in carriers. I spot like a moe if I have binocs. And use radio commands quite frequently. Team play is definitely the way to go. But I gotta gets mine too!!!

That is still hard to do and for your ranking idea people will just exploit the ammo giving /healing point system to gain points and rank. there's always a way.
