In looking at how points are awarded, in conjunction with my claim that the point system is meant to encourage players to get out there and fight, I see a disparity between that claim and what could potentially happen. I state that players who hide and try to come out for a kill when someone is near death will almost certainly not win the game, because the winner is based on points (i.e., how much damage you actually do). However, looking at how points are awarded for a kill appears to be in direct contradiction to that statement.

Currently, a player is awarded a number of points equal to the 'Mech's tonnage for getting the kill-shot. This is regardless of how much damage a player actually did to that unit in a given turn. What this means is that a player can indeed hide and snipe for kills, and potentially come out a winner due to the massive amount of points they are awarded when they are lucky enough to get the kill. I do want players to get some award for getting a kill in addition to just the +1 in the kill column, but what was currently being awarded was egregious. It's been pointed out by a couple players that they felt it was off, and I've had the feeling as well.

With the above in mind, I set out and played with what the awarded points for a kill should be, and adjusted all points for players based the new system. I looked at several different amounts from 10% of tonnage to 100% of tonnage, and found that awarding a player 25% of the 'Mech's tonnage as points was a number that had the best balance.

I tried 10% and found that number was too insignificant to make any real difference, and I didn't like it. You should be awarded something. I found anything over 25% resulted in an awarded number of points that encouraged players to hide out and wait until they could get potential kills, which is what I don't want. So, end result, 25% was just right.

I'm going to update the rules and adjust all points for this game accordingly. Figured I'd post it here so you all knew.

Turn 10 firing results have been posted, and WOW!! Shocked

jymset really had a string of bad rolls against him on that one. Not only did chihawk hit with everything, the only point of structure to be damaged caused an ammo explosion in the left torso! And if that wasn't insulting enough, his good buddy Chunga fired an LPL and scored a golden BB. As you'd expect, it floated to the CT, and yup, a 3rd engine hit did him in!! I'm sorry man... those are the kinds of rolls that make me cringe, and it wasn't happening to me!

Anyways, down to the final 3 now, with chihawk still holding onto a ~100 point lead on the nearest active player; thanks in large part to the amount of damage he did to jymset before Chunga finished him off!

Mordel rolled the last turn but had a graduation party today. I suspect he'll get to posting the results tonight or tomorrow.
