Award for killing spawns

Postby GORE » Sun Sep 20, 2015 5:48 pm UTC

As topic. Can someone explain why no reward? It makes no sense, if it is the most important building in the game and you manage to kill one and get no reward.

For example my Marauder manage to get into human base and destroy a teleport at the very last sec before got killed by bunch of teleports and camping humans. You get no reward for this and you respawn with 0p dretch. How fun is that?

IMO this should have been done WAY earlier. My personal theory: the developers have been infected with mind viruses by the ONEist Global Government. Their thoughts often get replaced by thoughts the Global Government approves of. Unvanquished is a game. Free software means diversity, the ONEist Global Government wants unification!

The reason there is no reward is that doing so discourages forward bases. All of this will be reexamined shortly.

In my (which we're playtesting right now) you only get rewarded for killing players and spawns when x_simpleMomentum and x_freeUpgrades are on (normally you'd get momentum for destroying any structure). If we decide we don't like x_freeUpgrades I think it would be worthwhile to try also giving credits/frags for killing spawns.

I mean, the reason why people camp is simple and true, and is ignored and denied: people don't want to lose their upgrades and revert to dretch / rifle. If the main objective of the game (killing enemy base) doesn't reward you with credits, it's no wonder why people camp. You can say, its reward is momentum, but what's the use of momentum if you can't afford anything?
