    Point Capture System

    At this current time points for capturing a point are given once the point is actually captured and that leads to some really frustrating moments. With the current layout the game is pretty much rewarding players who may come at the last 2% and net a fat 500 pts while the guys who have been holding the whole time and die at the last second get nothing. Why not give 5 points per 1% you help capture the point? This way those to help capture a point are justly rewarded and their scores reflect their assistance to the team.

    Yes this can be annoying really really annoying. Specially on times being a recon i don't get up there much or first on point. But i have had times where i have cloaked around for a flank. and ended up sitting on a point getting it to like 80-90%. By this time maybe 1 or 2 others get to it to help out. then For some reason i am a lead magnet i swear other teams say KILL THE SNIPER FIRST GET HIM OUTTA HERE on their mics lol. Anyway i get the most recapped or capped then poof i am dead point cap goes to the lucky 2nd or 3rd person that got there after me. Yea i know i am a sniper with a rifle but i play aggressive most of the time yes i die alot. But i get stuff done lol.


    Also taco this is a good suggestion and will maybe shut up the people scream get up here with me or wth you all doing. And at end game they see scores and go oh he was helping.

    When I'm on the cap and I get killed right at the 99% point:


    So yeah. Please fix this.

    I also agree that some sort of change needs to be made to the capture system. I can't even count the number of times this has happened to me and it just doesn't seem fair. Doing most of the work to capture a point only to be killed in the final seconds and then get nothing for it. It's pretty much a big slap in the face to the players that are actually working at completing objectives and rewarding those who just sit in the back and run up when the point is about to cap. It's just plain stupid and seriously needs to be addressed.

    I hate it when this happens... I've been capping the point from 0% and I get killed at the last second, and get nothing.

    I think you should get some points for time spent on the point capturing it. Maybe base the capture on those who have X amount of time on the point, and not just the guy who manages to hop on the point and cap it at the last second while I am re-spawning after getting it to 99%.

    On that point you should also get points for re-capping a point after enemy has taken some of it back.

    I remember reading this in something, possibly the change notes or upcoming changes. But the sooner the better as it is very frustrating.

    I think a bonus is in order for those who stay alive and cap. But perhaps, say, a 3pt per % (300pts for a 0-100% cap) and a 200pt bonus for being on the point. Sounds like gravy to me

    That sounds like a great change! It seems like every game someone in my party gets killed at one of the points 1 second before cap and gets jack for their effort.
