A few minor suggestions from a long time player.
« on: February 16, 2009, 08:18:47 pm »
I never understood why the number of kills displayed were mixed with points obtained from capping. Sometimes it becomes incredibly hard to decipher who has killed the most people in each game to judge how good you have performed with other players. I really don't see the point in anyone getting any points from capping as a lot of the time the person who caps just picks up the flag half way through the map and has not really earned it. All the points do is blur the image of how each person has played.

And also, I thought it would be interesting at the end of the match to display some statistics for the players. Maybe like "Most Accurate", "Most Consecutive Kills", "Longest Alive", etc. I believe it would give players something to look for at the end of each game and a nice reward to the people who have performed greatly.

Apparently you haven't even seen the 1.5.0 Change log released last year during April?

1st one is in the next version of soldat.

2nd one could be done with scripting.

The second idea is one Ive always pondered. As far as ego is concerned, this would make things competitive and funny.

I strongly request that someone with the relevant csripting skills experiment with this, as it would prove very popular, as have the 'spree' script has almost become a norm.
Im sure that the data required to calculate some of these stats over the course of a match could be strenuous, but its worth testing, no?


Some ideas, though may be problematic (considering each player id needs its own set of properties). Perhaps each could be represented as a different 'medal' on each players score

- (total hits/bullets fired)*100 = accuracy (crosshair medal)
- longest timer per players' lifespan =  (red cross medal)
- biggest spreecount per player = (blood splatter medal)
- longest distance kill = (eyeball medal)
- most headshots =  (head medal)
- best kd ratio = rambo (gold medal)
- worst kd ratio = major (chicken medal)
- most knife kills = ninja (knife medal)
- most nades thrown = spammer ( fodder medal)
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a bike and then asked for forgiveness.

I like the idea. The biggest whiner and the biggest spawner should get medals too for their efforts.

Finally I'll be first place for all the kills. ;)

Good idea Shady, and It will come out for 1.5.0 I believe, that it shows how many caps each person had, and how many kills. 8)

theyre a tad harder to detect, my friend....

biggest whiner = at its most basic would see who talked the most, but that talking wouldnt necesarily be whining. Youd need some kind of ai picking apart the words to make sense of them

biggest spawner needs to check that player x killed y number of people before their lifespan reached z seconds.

Seems like Halo's idea, but I do like the sound of it. ;)

F12, this is a pretty cool idea that wouldn't take much of a time investment.
I attend grammar school, last grade, and ignorance is all around me. Well, good for them. Ignorance is bliss.

F12! This can be done! Remember MM said that there will be rankings and accounts etc to be made. So maybe this could be included in all that too?

the 1st idea IS already implemented in 1.5 but some people (like me) would like to see it in 1.4.2 optionalized, in the config, and f12 to the 2nd idea as well, would give us more to kill for ;d

Yes, medals could be fun. If there were enough players in game (not having one guy receiving them all because he was the best among of four playing, lol).
