here is a my score from Primeval the same game I got the manta kills on. It is not very high but i guess it is a good palce to start. Right now it says Fro has the record but I am guessing that is a mistake since there is no proof or date broken listed and it is the same score from his regular invasion record

The fact is, there's no practical way to know these things that I'm aware of.
 


The fact that also that on some maps LA dont have SuperWeapons... lol some maps dont even have flaks...

Of course ive done my record with a tripple!

Seriously sometimes i dont understand people's arguing.


The only way for the record to be as fair and meaningful as possible is to let people use all the tools available to them.
 


 


Me neither. We had and will always have what we have available to us, either from our abilities, from the map, or from our friends and fellow players. We should be able to use what ever we can get our hands on, and if folks have a problem with that, well... I leave what this military brat would say up to their imagination.

Ok, I finally started reading this thread, and as you can tell, I am posting replies a bit out of order. I would like to share some ideas, suggestions and such on this thread as a whole. Here goes...

1) I think we probably should give some thoughts to re-starting some, if not most of these records when Dru releases his new RPG with the changes for the flak, rl and triple. I think that regardless of what we think about those changes, for or against, we probably can agree that if we don't, then many of the records in this thread are likely to be unbreakable for a very LONG time.

The only problem I see with this idea...there is no way to tell when the picture was taken in the current versions. If the server perhaps provided a date related string (such as the game start time in the POSIX time_t format), and the client changed the F1/F3 stats displays to display say the RPG version and that server supplied string on the screen somewhere, that would definitely help as a validation, especially when you consider that there is no way to tie the F1 and F3 screens together after the fact. Adding in a server IP or some other server specific string to that little validation text as well would also help validate that it was the DC server (yea, folks can still use a photo editor, but it is harder to get it right). Anyone know enough UT script and have the time to help code something up and get it to Dru for the next release? My spare time for the next few weeks is mostly going to be spent staying sane, so coding is low on my priority list, and killing is towards the top!

(side note...too bad we cannot rename the thread to have "v1.8" or something like that , and switch to "v1.9" or "v2.0" with the new RPG version )

2) I know I currently hold the record dare devil, but I would like to suggest that we split the DD record into at least two parts, based on the vehicle type involved. After all, those of us who have spent any time stunting around in the vehicles know that it is much easier to get a high DD score in the hellbender than it is in the scorpion, and some vehicles seem to be nearly impossible (anyone ever get a DD in the tank??) We might also want to give some thoughts to things like certain maps being given special treatment (perhaps a OMG special DD section), and such scores be given special mention without knocking off the highest general score. For example, I have to wonder what sort of DD you could do on ONS-Tricky off that tower. And if we do decide to do this, I would also propose that my present record be moved into such a category. At the time, I never could figure out how I managed that DD, between the lag, the bugs and everything else going on during that map.

SPECIAL NOTE: I suspect that the DD stats shown by the F3 screen are a **TOTAL**, not a max. Do we want to also consider the aggregate separately if this is indeed the case?

3) I liked the idea of a prime-time vs. non-prime-time record for things like high score or most XXX kills. But without the mods I suggested for (1), there is no way I can see to even think of this, as many require a F1 and F3 screen shot. But kudos to 320 for suggesting it, even though it would have practically doubled the work required to keep it up to date.

4) On the trifecta (flak monkey, head hunter and shock combos), I wonder how many of us would be on the list? And for a twist, how many of us could do it multiple times??

BTW...To the likes of Fooder, 320, the rest of the folks with the top 10 scores, and most especially Fro and Blade...

Re: number 1, I have been thinking about this. It's partly why I started the high score table, to kind of give people a fresh shot in the current environment. I don't know if Fro's high score was pre- or post-nerf, but I do know that there are a ton more players who play at a higher level than at that time. Also, there were a couple maps that I used to play late at night and I could get 2400 easily. That's just not the case now. If even one other good player is on the server, just breaking 2000 is often a miracle.

Most of the wep records are fine, I think, because Blade has broken just about all of them since the last nerf!

I'm kind of torn because I am worried that if I reset everything back to zero, people will stop trying for anything. Why bother? The next round of nerfs, we'll have to reset it all again. But, I'll give the people what they want, so if you want it reset after the nerf, chime in.

WRT to the high score table, I don't think it's going to be a big deal though. The reason is that several people on it are improving. Nerf or no-nerf, they will beat their old scores soon enough.

Re: no. 2, there's obviously a whole slew of potential records. This is kinda selfish but I just don't care for VINV enough to really go down that path. I added a few records. But, if I added daredevil for different vehicles, it logically follows we should also have "most kill" records with the different vehicles. And then from there, most weapon kills in VINV. etc. If someone wants to start a record thread for VINV, it won't be stepping on my toes at all. Seriously, go for it. I know there are fans of that gametype.

Re: no. 3, yeah, it's too bad there's no server-based time stamp with the scores, like GMT. That might make it possible. The reason I thought of it is because most of the really high records require special circumstances to beat: A certain number of players that are basically low level, the right map, the right guns. The conditions very rarely exist during "prime time".

I definetly dont think a reset of the records is necessary, and "NO" I'm not just saying that because I have a few records my self. True the weapons have changed and are going to change again but getting kills with a particular weapons is more about the strategy you use than the weaons you have. You have to match the weapon to the map. I just got the avril record with a pericing + 1 and no triple, I got the lighning gun record with a sturdy +2 I had a triple but back then I only had a 100 adrenaline so I never used them. So no matter what is done to the weapons the records can still be broken you just have to use a good strategy (most importantly is to run away from other player, you will never break a record staying with the group, I see wolf packs of players all the time running around with the medics). So, I hope the records dont get reset, I know for me getting a 1st place score has lost its thirll but breaking records is still fun but not if they are going to be reset every time soemthing about the server changes.

I think(I could tell you for sure if I had a date of when the nerf was) that high score was post nerf. Although, I plan on beating it this spring break anyway.

I don't really think a reset is necassary. Most of the records on their anyway have been broken fairly recently, and the loss of +5 flaks will be(IMO) negated by the fact that people will be increasing in levels making it easier for them to score higher/kill more. Also, the addition of the new increased damage bonus skill for LW will give LW players a better chance of scoring big. Personally, I don't think many of those records are going to last for a long time.

I do propose perhaps seperating the high score table into classes. One for medics/Monster Masters, LA, LW, and an overall table. I think that might be fun. I would give a chance for people to fight over "best in class." More work, but a fun thought.

Well... four tables to maintain. I wanted the high score table to have a "name up in lights" sort of appeal, hence the graphic. But every time I update it, it requires a bit of work.

There's another issue. First, I don't know how many medics are competitive in the scoreboard sense. It kind of goes against the class. I don't think I'd improve my already stellar popularity by encouraging medics to go after scoreboard points and focus on healing people less as a result.

It would be nice to see a medic scoreboard in the game, which I think would be mostly a measure of exp gained, I spose. I'd love to see something like that period, for all the classes. A lot of the high level strats are focused around the kill shot and winning the adren award. Seeing how much exp a player earns could introduce a new dynamic - the player who is doing the most dmg overall. Seems more team-based.

nope, sorry, that doesn't count.
the rules clearly state "...thus, fro can only do a valid BINGO with his medic character, which cannot be more than level 50"

you missed that i guess.
there are special rules for blade, fodder and 320 as well.

(sorry i just couldn't resist. a few days ago I was getting constantly healed by fro_md like he was my own personal medic -and he was healing others, too- and then way before level 16, fro got a "dominating." so i went to my room and cried...)
