So each of your pilots have an app running in a background that detects kills in OS and then reports them to the server.

I might be to hesitant to run something of that sort on my machine, because you know paranoia :)

Internally yes, we have a software that upload the combat.log when the file is closed. (mean that you disconnected / quit the game) but it's only for internal use of FrogSwarm.

If I made a public killboard, you'll need to upload the combat.log only using the web interface. If no ones are interested, it will stay an internal service for my corporation.

I'm with you in this.

 

A "killboard" like this in the game's leaderboard or pilot profile would look nice though.

Why do send the complete file after closed instead of just the information who killed who in open space in real time ?

Realtime mean open stream, mean resources. We wanted to minimize the resources needed of the small software for the client and the server side. Also, we wanted to keep it easy to maintain and let all the "analyzer" part in server sided, which allow us to modify the patterns in case of need without any patch deployment.

i'm all yes for a kilboard, but the same concern as kostyan

 

this should be a suggestion to be put in the game itself better, you get my passing vote

if not much, at least the kb stats would give people more reasons to go in OS?

Vikings do care about Open Space. Not sure about this Killboard, but don't see no harm there. I think the most interesting update would be have the Open Space matters for the Sector Conquest.

So in the end, it's seems that a public killboard doesn't seems to be interesting for the majority, then for now it will stay private to FrogSwarm until the dev is finished and I will provide a public version after in case of some want it or mind change. Let me know in the futur.

I don't know of many corporation that have active invasion pvp as it can be found in EvE. Most of my invasion pvp is just random killing while doing daily mono missions (which I don't do anymore), to make them kinda fun. And more often than not, I'm not proud of the kills to the point where I want to show off about them to everyone. It's more just: "I can kill him so why not".

 

Now if Invasion had a bounty system, as we have suggested hundreds of times... That would make your tool more relevant! For showing off kills on high-bounty targets!

heh you have a LOT of enemies :D

 

Well for me, anything that is not blue is a target. Except corpmates. Well... most of the time :P

Actually, if neutral and with a corp tag we do not shoot them.

 

We are in a kind of crusade were we are trying to make people understand that they need to join a corp, because this is a multiplayer game. Then for it, we shoot only non corped pilots in the OS when they are neutral and if they ask why we killed them we explain they need to get friends by joining a corp whatever the corp is and we'll not shoot at them anymore, because it's not a playstation solo game. Unfortunately few of them understand it or don't understand something else than Russian anyway.

Hmm, that's actually a good idea :)

 

However with the current lack of PVP squads, your efforts are in vain :/

My bad.... I was pissed at the OS recent rewards nerfing. I think this Killboard is amazing. I missed the point entirely! May I suggest you do a poll with it's details and so on? I'll help you to spread the word between the corps and when you have a decent number there, the developers will also have a feel on what people really think. Cheers!

hm.. I am personally interested in killboard special targets that i choose preliminary.

For me that is some collection of kills well known for me players. I hunted for month for some of them. And some kills only in my memory, because there was no time for create screenshot.

 

Dear Silmerias

Please describe your suggestion here: https://forum.star-conflict.ru/index.php?/forum/544-utility-ot-soobschestva/

I guess you easily find some people in Russian community that interested in that and i guess they can help you with that idea if you need.

Actually, I don't need any help here because it's already live and used for my own corporation but thanks anyway. I just wanted to know if others corps were interested to use a public one accessible for everyone and not only listing one corp kill / death. If any Russian corp are interested the only help that'll need will be to translate it in English to Cyrillic ;-) I'll give a link soon to present it, then if you can pass the info to the Russian community it could be nice to them.
