You seem to be pretty clueless. They're talking about seperating teams as being a huge issue, while it isn't. Anything that is irrelevant should stay out of the thread.

bump

hoping you could choose the sorting style you like the best or at least make the old scoreboard sort players by kills. the messiness has been bothering me since 1.6 came out.

Oh, the topic has been revealed again.

So, I still vote for old sorting by kills from 1.5 - less messy...

Once again, I think sorting by kills makes more sense even in CTF, because there already is a cap counter at the bottom right and shows the entire team's effort, while individual players should be sorted by kills in the player scoreboard.

But seeing how some people still disagree with that, both kinds of sorting should be included as a customizable option (regardless if the scoreboard STYLE is set to "old" or "new"). But then the question is, which sorting option should be default? I vote for kills of course.

How about sorting by kills but divided by teams?

Some of us, including me, think that K:D is somewhat irrelevant in ctf because it's about caps. And we think that getting a good K:D doesn't necessarely help your team.
Example: 2 guys stay in base and defend while 1 is constantly rushing to get flag. The 2 guys will pick up a good K:D while the one rushing will die all the time, but will get the team some important caps.

Then again.. you can't win the match if you don't kill enemies, and it's not allways the guy who got the flag who does the cap. So I understand both viewpoints.

Ultimatly, it's more when and where you kill enemies that counts, and you shouldn't look so much at scoreboard at all.
Even though, low K:D and no caps can be an indication of someone not playing very well.

- I think the most imortant reason why it was changed to sort by caps was that there was too many statswhores in ctf that verbally made fun of anyone with a low K:D

Having spent countless of hours on public CTF servers playing 1.6.2, I can say this hasn't changed at all.

Sorting by ratio! :D Then everybody has same chances... Even if someone joined when match was already finishing...

Anyway, I think those tables aren't making to me so big harm. But newbies may feel confused.

The point is that it would be even worse with the 1.5 scoreboard.


Now for my opinion on this matter:
1) Anything that can help diminish the amount of stats-whoring in CTF is good to take.
2) In CTF, the team with the most caps will win, not the one with the most kills or the best k/d.
Therefore it's nothing but logical that the scoreboard is sorted by caps.

=> I vote for the 1.6 scoreboard.
