View Full Version : Online kill scoring

12-11-2005, 07:11 PM
Hey all, I thought I'd post this system that I developed for keeping track of my online kills (I've recently started placing kill "markers" on the side of my aircraft - a red/blue cross on a white background). It's pretty simple, and hopefully some of you will take to it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Basically, this is how it goes:

1 kill = +1 marker
Landing on an airfield = Saving your markers (so if you took off, shot down two, then you land and the two is added to your tally)
1 death = You lose all the markers you had while flying. If you had shot down three and then were shot down, you loose all three.
Bailing out: Subtract two markers
Landing in the field: Subtract 1 marker

You ONLY get the kill if the game says "___ was shot down by ___" - you do NOT get it if the enemy spins into the ground. Also, to be fair, if you crash land but it still says the enemy killed you, go with the game and lose your points.

Anyway, I'm up to 7, but I had some miscounting earlier while I was still getting this set http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But yea, this is my system, and I'd like to know what you all think.

Oh! And a question: how EXACTLY does the online point system work? I never got it, and it seems to act randomly.

Here's the system I believe in: http://cot.jg1.org/?faqs#Stats

No, no, I made this up for Dogfight servers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That looks like it's for coops/sorties/tournament play http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If i make someone spin i count it as a kill, by outflying them. So i would include that.

Manoeuver kills? I saw a discussion once about it... some folks were for it some against.
I think personally that it would be quite hard to implement in FB.
But nonetheless if good implemented it would be great.

And also something for guys that disconnects when you are near (you get kill), or simply bail out -- you get kill... that would be awesome http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif.

Heres the trick http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif Dont follow the games scoring system, tbh it sucks badly! Use your own scoring like me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I keep it simple, if i get one, yay, if not, i dont! If i get one and die, no count caus i died!

Gettin a kill can be outflying them or physically shootin them down!

Noobs crash easily when turnin on the deck, bear that in mind http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

manuver kills though not scored are still supreamly satisfying. Nothing better than talking some poor sucker into driving their plane into the side of a hill because they were to kill focused to actually pay attention to what was going on. Even better when you have freinds there to see it happen. For me thats the same as geting the score. I was on a roll a week or two ago on Spits V 109's On the battle of briton map I was in a 109 heading into the ships for some mast level bombing. Just as I got on target I noticed I had picked up a fast moveing spitfire, He looked to be just outside of guns range or about 2 seconds back. 8^) I also figured that I was their ro take out a ship and he was not going to stop me. 8^) So, snuggled up against the water ar ran as fast as I could, droped my bomb and bounced over the boat. About 2 seconds later I got the expected enemy ship destroyed, and the unexpected enemy plane destroyed messages.. Yes, down one boat and a spit, two for the price of one. I pulled a hig banking turn and noticed yet another spit was diving on me. I figured he might be upset for blowing up his buddy. I knew I was way to low and slow to have a fighting chance so I threw caution to the wind and let him glue himself to my 6. I dove back towards the remaining ships and ran again, just as I saw the rigging I pulled up and bounced over the ship again, looked over my shoulder just in time to see the new spit get chopped to pieces in the rigging. No credit for that one, but equally satisfying. 8^)

That takes maneuver kills to a new level!

I count kills only if I get the "Enemy Aircraft Destroyed" message and I land successfully. Unfortunately, I have so few I don't need to put a tally sheet on my plane. I just remember them all! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
