Bomb Carrying Should Give Points

Recommended Posts

Points should be awarded to a bomb carrier for carrying the bomb closer to a bomb target if he dies. Points given should be proportional to distance to target.

 

Not if he drops it as there is potential abuse.

Not a bad suggestion. However this mode already has the most abuse in terms of farming EFF. 

 

It would have to not count self-destructs either. 

 

Corps currently already 'camp' the bomb somewhere and surround it with a  near impenetrable frigate blob. farming kills and elevating their EFF for the leaderboards. 

 

essentially balancing to kills Vs. EFF needs to happen before this is considered. it's great for people who actually play the objective, but it doesn't do anything to curb the current abuse.

Not if you read how the OP has suggested the Idea,

 

You get points by moving towards an objective. And maybe negative points for moving away from objective. Could remove the points on pickup option.

Would resolve the im going to take the bomb and run with it tactic.

 

Actually thinking about it this is a great idea !!!

 

 I get annoyed when i pickup the bomb travel 10k to deliver the bomb and die planting then somebody else gets the point.

 

Remove the points on bomb pickup, and give points for bomb plant and travel to point.

Points added when distance to closest Enemy beacon is reduced (keep it dynamic to obj so if closer to one onject, but the other point is clear it doesnt force the player to go in suicide mode)

moving away from enemy beacon with bomb = points deducted (if your tactically retreating that's fine you should be tactically attacking soon anyway so get your points back :P)

If bomb dropped (not player death) only half the points are awarded.

 

@ onisake it cant be abused really, as the OP states get points by carrying the bomb "closer" to the objective, not for just carrying the bomb.

Killavirus nails it on the head.

 

There is very little room for stat generating abuse. I doubt anyone would want to farm score by dying repeatedly for 20-50 points.

Corps will. sacrifice for the team. it's common for guilds. they care about the EFF, not their KDA. Corps are ranked by EFF, not KDA. that's why this can, and will, happen.

It would be much more efficient for them to just cloak/cocoon for the 150pts versus a 50pt reward for moving 5K towards an enemy base.
