In this thread I would like to post some of my ideas for MP.
First of all, there should be individual bonuses at the end of a match like for example: reward for fewest deaths, most number of revives/downs/executions, killing many opponents without death etc. There should be also more statistics like shiv kills, W\L, headshot downs, melee kills.
Also I love the stealth element in MP, but nowadays it's being more shooter gameplay. Maybe making new hardcore mode where being shooted one time in body gets you down and headshost means immediately execution would make it more stealth.
These are just my ideas, I would like to know if you agree with them or maybe you see this in different way, just let me know.
Making guns stronger will provide you to hide more often rather than rushing with other stuff like explosives or modded 2x4.
Maybe it's not the best idea for making it more stealthy but I really can't see better. What I love in The Last of Us is that this is the other kind of gameplay and this is difficult to make this stealth as players are getting nice skilled so then can rush you. If you got any idea to make it REALLY stealth just share this with us!
want an emphasis on stealth instead of the balance we have between the two? get rid of listen mode, make characters loud in sound having covert mute them more and more and make the radar a bit stronger. that will mean people who make noise will be prominently heard and/or found and those who sneak will actually be able to sneak.
