Do away with points and make it all mission / achievement based
« on: September 08, 2016, 01:42:01 AM »
With numbers so low (9 players as I type) it is hard enough to find a fight.  With players scared to lose a life / stat / K/D ratio it is even harder.

Make it all mission / achievement based to encourage people to try to stay in the fight - or at least try to fight.  This is getting really really bad at the moment.

What makes you think it's got anything to do with the score?  Some people just don't want to die period, regardless of what the reason is.

The old misconception about score. Survival does not necessarily mean a better score. Everybody actually have played for score knows that too much emphasis on survival can actually hurt your score, except for bombers.

I am a 'survivalist' because I dislike getting shot down. Score doesn't matter in this context.
