Should the PP scoring go?

Postby maxim12 » 18 May 2019, 14:08

I'm talking about Player Points, the points that you obtain only in Ranked matches...

Personaly, I think the game needs to return to the old root of Kills/KDr as the main scoring system. Yes, it had issues, but It's more simpler. I dont see Plazma Burst 2 as a Competitive game, it just doesent add any value to the game, which mean't to be more of a 'sandbox' game.

Why can't it be both competitive and sandbox? Competitive PB2 sucks, but if people enjoy it, I'm not going to bother them.

Well, good point, but I'm talking about rather that the old Kills/KD'r scoring system was more simple and less of an "Risk" tryhard effort for a casual flash game, PP is just too much of an unnecessarily complicated system for a casual 2d sidescroller sandbox flash game.

The PP system should stay as it is. The competitive side has its own audience just like the casual side does, which increases activity (This should be better in PB2.5 when the game isn't a broken mess).

A lot of things need to be changed for PB2.5, but PP is fine as it is.

that's how you get easy stat farming. there's a reason competitive modes in games don't use simple stats like KDR and instead opt for something like mmr/elo. simple doesn't always mean better
