Hi there seems to be a bug with point system:

I won a dm today, I got a total of 12 points, I had two killing sprees, got killed once...

I look forward to the new ships,

Could you expand on the whole vosran balance thing?

Three emperors!!! Wup wup!!

I will notify Kumo and we will try whatever is causing the bugs. Though you will only get 5 points after doing more than 3 killing sprees, and then another 5 points after 10 killing sprees.

Edit: You might have played before the new patch was actually released.

We released the patch with reset yesterday and the new scoring at around 9.10 am swedish time this morning. But we are monitoring the situation and will fix any bugs that come up.

My feedback.

DM and DOM rewards are way too low.
Monthly PvP reward for top players is too low.

This is no longer a competition of strength but a competition of who can queue the most.

This is true, but every system has its drawback. I accept the fact that I will be pulled out the top 10 because of this change, but at least pvp will be more for fun and less stressfull (with this "bad-team-dom" events).

Maybe a solution could be think of, to ponderate the number of points you gain by the number of match you are playing (or something like that). Or just make a ranking based on the individual ratio win/lose for dom and dm (maybe apart ?), per month.

#66307 by TheScythe Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:25 pm
Simplest solution would be to just base it on individual performance. Winning a dom gives you 25 easy points, a win should count as 10. For a dm it should be 2x kills-deaths. That way if you aren't good enough, you still can make it - but it will take longer

Simple;

Add a "winning streak" multiplier which gets you increasingly higher amount of points for winning streaks. Players that played the most will likely keep breaking their streaks while good/Lucky players will likely keep their streaks.

Increase points at a rate of (1.0 + 0.3 x win streak) x base points.

I had a long reply typed out but was then bumped out, but basically
The no losing points things means that skill matters even less now...playing more is all that matters
Getting disconnected by your lousy servers costs me points now? Awesome

One part complains about how the new PvP-System doesn't work out for them, another part complains about the low rewards, and just another part started complaining about players who already have above 1400 score.

And i'm just sitting here and enjoy the show and watch slowly how the PvP-System breaks. Servers lag like hell, PvE is still boring but of course, it's essential that PvP is up-to-date :lol: And i'm also getting the feeling that PvP isn't about fun anymore but actually taken seriously.

Well, i give this game seriously one more year, possibly 2. As negative as it sounds but i see no future here. Vorsran was released one year ago, now we finally and hopefully soon get the emperors. It's about time. 3 new ships that are probably broken. Vorsran tweak? In what way? You can't circle zhersis anymore because he permanently lays bombs now? :lol: Would be a great patch to be honest here.

Oh well, let's see what we get.

Why are you complaining? At least you can farm vors; I haven't been able to farm ANY vors elites for MONTHS. And its not like its my ISP, ive tried a completely different computer and ISP, and it still lags to heck. You may wonder whats been up my bum lately, well its because I haven't been able to play for months.

FIX YER FRAKKIN SERVERS!!!!!
