Flags vs Kills

3 points for taking an undefended flag as opposed to 1 point for making a kill. Can this arrangement be altered so it's less of a racing game.

Re: Flags vs Kills

Yeah I never really liked the idea of getting 3 points per flag cap, is there a reason why that was implemented?

It's the same reason as ticket bleeding.

Teamplay vs. Kills.

Re: Flags vs Kills

Showing the stock values for reference, which one are you talking about:

ScoreManager.kill 1
ScoreManager.death 0
ScoreManager.capture 10
ScoreManager.attack 0
ScoreManager.defence 3
ScoreManager.TK -2

This is for CTF, the correct values for an unmodded Conquest server should be:

ScoreManager.kill 1
ScoreManager.death 0
ScoreManager.capture 10
ScoreManager.attack 2
ScoreManager.defence 5
ScoreManager.TK -2

Where attack is the amount of points given when a player captures a control point. Defence and capture values are ignored in Conquest and only work in CTF.

Re: Flags vs Kills

Me dont like this either. It means silly buggers running to grey flags, just to collect points. It ruins game play.
Really , the guy who greyed and fought for flag deserves points, most others are just flag whores.
It is dumb, stupid as it works against your own team.
The 5 or 6 guys flag whoring, should really advance towards other flags and of course try kill enemy instead of waiting around, packed together by grey flag.
This is also stupid cause they could all die with nade or shell.

Re: Flags vs Kills

I think it should be points to the first guy to grey the flag if it then goes on to be captured.
The others may not be running to the flag to score some cheap points but consolidate the capture and wipe out any resistance.
Hard to tell which players are whoring and which are supporting in these instances.

I agree with you!
Maybe just 2 points for taking a flag could be fair.
