The losing team on Survivor

9 replies 583 views Edited Jul 15, 2013

I believe ND is too giving with the "pity" toolboxes. Here's a story.

 

Once upon a time, my team was dominating with 3:0 rounds. I thought we had this in the bag, but then the next round, their team were running around with machetes and armor. So clearly we got destroyed on that round, okay. Then again, they destroyed us with their advantages. Then again. Now we're at 3:3, so the round for all of us was supposed to be"fair."

 

Nope; their previous match gave them 6 shotgun shells, modded excaliburs, and we, again, ate asphalt. :l

 

The End. Sooo, watcha thiiink? Smiley Very Happy

For some reason Naughty Dog loves to baby the losing team, no idea why. It's borderline retarded when you open up a crate to get 2 bombs a molotov, healthpack and a machete. I also just played a game where the losing team got swept, their top player finished ahead of me in parts, when he had 1 kill and I had about 7. It's just stupid.

The few (aka the people who just aren't that great at the game and I say that without insult) speak louder and more frequently then the mant (people who are just capable of playing wether good or bad). So many companies think 80 to 90% of their player is upset about somthing wheb truly its probably only a small 10-5% who are complaning. So these companies always get terrified of these small amounts and bend to their will (even though these complainers probably get bored and stop plsying the game after they get whst they want)

The many unfortunatly get frakked over because they have no issues and so fo not really see the few who complainin g because they arent looking for it. Thusly we get screwed since we do not get our opinion properly heard.

I don't have any issues with the welfare system. Especially if it stops people quiting the game when losing.

I don't know if I didn't noticed the reason but today I had a match where my team was domination (3:0). I checked the scoreboard, and what do I see? The top player on the enemy team had 3 downs, 3 executions, 3 deaths and 0 revives. I was the top player on our team and I had: 7 downs, 6 executions 3 deaths and 0 revives. Here comes the funny part:: My score: 2135   His score: 4135!!!! How can this happen?

He may have been on a 100% mission and getting the 10% bonus. Add in the possibility that his mission could have been crafting and then you have the potential for big time points Could have also been running healer 2 or 3.

 

.Good support players can rake in the points.

Support almost always rules in parts. Here is why: apart from the time, there is no limit. Player gets downed -> revived, hurt -> healed, team does bad -> more stuff to craft. AND charity goes that far, that it offers parts when someone falls behind too much. This even is exploitable, especially in survivors where you get more if you fall back.
It's ND's way to tell us, that support is important. But imagine a game where nobody gets hurt and no one can heal... Because this would happen, if everyone was hunting for parts, running healer and reviver.

The losing team on survivors is whoever plays survivors.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe
