I know the bonus to kill the Hidden will be less but what about making the bonus depend on how much you hit him. Like 50% of the weight you already have or something this way.

Sounds good, but then people who get the last minute one-shot kill would get absolutely nothing if they didn't already have some weight. Thoughtfull but it would generate alot of complaints.

why not just have the weighting points awarded for damage received not sent.

as in if you have 4hp left then the person who kills you only get 4 weight points even if they lag-shot you with a shotgun doing 99+ damage then leave the kill bonus alone...

Maybe, but also consider that the damage they do will be the multiplied weight that they receive.

Note, I'm not necessarily supporting the idea, simply discussing the implication of it. It would deter Someone that does around 90 dmg to the hidden, for as far as I know that is around the most damage you can do without killing him, you get a weighting of 95 assuming you didn't accidentally shoot a teamate or die, and someone who gets in that last shot gets a weighting of 55.

This method may be the key to fixing the lucky guy who's just testing his gun and gets a shot off, and gives a better chance to reward the guy that did most of the work.

The other side of it, is that some "n3wb" gets off a lucky shotgun blast, and the truly talented player has to save the green guy's behind, in which case Johnny Misfire would become the Hidden.

Of course, who cares about one round, and who gets it that particular round?

If the bonus for killing he hidden is removed, then most likely there will be a surge of complaints saying "On weighted servers we aren't rewarded enough for getting the kill.", or something in that manner.

My own suggestion would just be to reduce the kill bonus from 50 to 25. That's the weighting award for a whole other hit, simply for a kill. Seems fair to me, but remember, just my opinion.

We're not discussing further alterations to this bit of weighting until after B5 comes out...

Intriguing answer, to say the least... or I just read far too much into it.

So, Prince read far too much into my reading too much into Ging's comment. The internet rocks on so many levels.


Not really. But I have to say that, or the internet will come after me.
