I need 105 supplies a match. O_O

36 replies 643 views Edited Jul 5, 2013

I know for some people this isn't much, but 105 supplies is a lot for an average player like me. I think ND need to make some tweaks to the supply system.

It its an open ended system. It doesn't need tweaking.

Use the following loadout - Whatever pistol you please (0) Whatever long gun you please (2) First Aid 3 (6) and Collecter 2 (5) that will get you mad parts if you heal your teammates a lot

You just said you're an average player, if supplies are reflecting how well you do, wouldn't that be good balance?

 

You'll settle on the number of survivors you can maintain on average. You can't keep everyone alive.

I agree that it needs to be tweaked.  If you only count downs/executions, there aren't enough points in a match for everyone on the winning team to get this many supplies.  Yes, I know everyone loves to say how if you put on reviver/first aid/crafter/etc. you can get a lot more points, but they shouldn't be required in order to gain enough food per match.  If you steamroll the other team so hard that you don't need to heal/revive/craft weapons very often you shouldn't be punished for it by being shorted for supplies.

I talk about this issue more in this thread

basically the game pushes point farming more than "winning" a match

Umm the whole point is that eventually you reach a peak of what you are able to earn. No adjustments necessary.

Main issue would be that if you are with a team who's performing well, the amount of supply available will be lower as they won't go down or need as much heal as a team struggling to get throught.

You're not supposed to be able to get all the supplies you need in every match. It's meant to keep your from getting too many survivors.

 

Do you not understand the point of the challenge? Why even have the meta game if anyone can easily earn all the supplies they need every match?

Except that it doesn't do so in a reasonable way.  There are far too few points in a match for a full team to be able to maintain a decent sized population without stacking on point farming boosters, no matter how good they are.  It's just not feasible.  And I challenge anyone here to party up with a team of four in Supply Raid and consistantly acquire 100+ supplies per match for each party member, with each member using only combat oriented boosters.  It just can't be done.

 

And for the people saying that it's designed to keep you from being able to succeed every time...do I even need to point out how ridiculous such a system is?  A game in which it's impossible for you to reach the goal that the game itself has set for you?
