Planned Forum Maintenance - 24th May 2018

We will be doing maintenance on 24th May 2018. The forums will be read-only until the maintenance is finished.

stuff I should know but dont

  1. Does turtles shield work in both directions?

  2. Does everyone deliver at the same speed?

  3. Does the ev move faster when more people are by it?

4.Getting revived still counts as a death?

  1. Killing someone that gets revived still counts as a kill?

    @nokiII You sure the EV doesn't go faster if a certain number of players are around ? Like 3 or 4 people, it gets a slight boost ?

  • nokiIInokiII Posts: 580

    Yes

    nerf snippers.

    My bad, i always thought there was a threshold where EV is going faster :P

  • ThePigVomitThePigVomit Posts: 383

    The EV has an acceleration period, but it is not linked to the quantity of friendlies within the escort zone aside from a minimum of 1 being present.

  • STARRYSOCKSTARRYSOCK Posts: 1,751

    Wait what? The EV doesn't move faster with more people near it?

    1,200+ hours in this game, and my entire life has been a lie.

    You might have memories from the past. This was a thing over one year ago; it drove faster the more players were hugging it.

    Ah, i knew i wasn't crazy ! xD

    Wasn't it a Chapel-only bug, but the misconception stemmed from it?

    AFAIR it was by design but players (rightfully) claimed that it gave an advantage to the already winning team.

    It felt more annoying on Chapel than on Bridge though because the EV part is longer there and dashing through it hurts the defenders more. Dockyard and Castle didn't exist back then.

    There is no ELO acronym, the Elo rating is named after the guy who invented it.

  • Does shooting EV with main weapon still not count towards your accuracy or did they fix that ?

    As far as I know shooting generators or the EV doesn't affect your accuracy one way or the other intentionally.

    Makes sense too, imagine someone just shooting the EV in order to make it seem like they got a higher accuracy than they actually did, or conversely not shooting an already damaged EV in fear of losing accuracy.
    Even though it's not that important, some people are very self conscious of their accuracy.

    The whole concept of accuracy is BS imo.

    Prefiring the corners is what every good player does. Shows true overview of whats going on.

    Taking control of the generator room is the second step on Bridge, after repair. Noobs should know that an entire team dancing around the EV is a no no...

  • @STARRYSOCK Thx for clarification , can remember in early days shooting EV to finish it off counted as missed shots , not that it evr stopped me :)

    Yes atleast iit seems faster atntimes
    Maybee @stayfreshshoe @c4Te @Moobabes can either confirm or deny the speed vs players surrounding question

    Hey look i finaly got a sig , and nothing to put here

    Scoreboard and XP yes, to the rest of your team no. Gib please.

    IMO

    BS or not, a lot of people judge you or even themselves on it.
    Same with the focus on K/D in a team-based objective game. It's not that important really, but people like to obsess over it

    The best way I found to improve my accuracy is playing as Kiratana. I die a lot but typically end up with an accuracy past 70%.

    1. when I get killed, get revived and get stabbed as soon as I stand up and die again, is that 2 deaths or a death and a finish?
  • PtilouiPtiloui Posts: 531

    One death, one finish.

    I've had the easiest time with shotguns tbh. At least they're not as broken as some games where you can get over 100% accuracy use them (at least I haven't), but they're still extremely easy to score highly with. And that was before the buff, lol

    1. if I get kicked from a game, does that still count as a game played for the 7-day prize thing?

    Afaik no, you have to finish the match. Same for missions too.

    Wait, it used to be? Why did it get removed?

  • KiraysKirays Posts: 1,513Moderator

    If my memory serves me right it was labeled as a bug fix.

    Nope. You must reach the scoreboard. I've popped into finished games in time to catch the final animation, go to the scoreboard, and obtain the daily reward.

    If you get kicked but the idle timer or by vote, then it's as if you never played the match.

    It still does count down any credit boosters though.
