Oh no, my executions have been stolen! *cue the Drake KDR picture from the UC3 forums*

Dude, you want to know why I rush to get executions? Parts. Screw kills. I do no matter what to get parts.

I average 360+ parts per minute, and I'm ranked in the top 2000. Trust me, I know this. lol.

Does anyone else find it insane that Executions are what count towards your kills in this game, and not the initial Down? Everytime you take down an enemy and a teammate takes the execution, they are getting the kill, not you. Who came up with this idea? I get it, you have to finish off the guy in order to get the kill. What this does though is makes the initial down pointless to whoever does it, because the execution is what matters. What sucks is most teammates will jack your execution before you even get a chance to finish the guy off. Why isn't the DOWN counted as your kill, seeing as you are the one who took down the enemy? I just find it ridiculous honestly. What's the point of even having DOWN as a statistic on the gameboard, if it has no meaning?

 

Who else thinks they should change this?

 

EDIT:  This is what I've been trying to say for the past 6 pages - Downs only count once the enemy has been taken out entirely. Even if a teammate finishes them off with an execution, you get the kill for it since you're the one who downed him. The teammate just gets XP for the down.

 

Maybe now you guys can understand. There is some bone-headed people on this forum. I feel like I'm trying to talk to apes. 


Downs aren't kills, and they shouldn't be counted as kills because the player can still move around and get revived. Sounds like you're just crying because you're KDR isn't looking good.


I have a 3.10 kdr. lol.

Well, not necessarily.

They get half the amount of cogs you got for the initial down. And both you and your partner get supplies and ammo now. Its kind of a win win, because score-board wise: you should technically still have a higher rank due to cogs and downs.

But what matters is the down, because you are the one who puts them in their final stand.


Thats what I am saying. The downs get more credit ~anyway~. Not the executions. The amount of cogs which is ultimately the amount of downs on enemy players you get. Not executions. You get more cogs from downs. Which means HIGHER on the leaderboard to begin with.

Me? I'm not really arguing anything at all. I'm just observing and explaining to you how downs give you more kogs and put you higher on the leaderboard. You get more credit for it.

So let me get this straight...

With this new system, if I downed someone on the enemy team, it would register as a "kill" even though they're not dead yet, and then they get revived by one of their teammates. Then I down them again and get another "kill", but they get revived yet again.

Does anybody else see the problem with this?

Oh good, because it seemed it was hard to explain how downs can be boosted, how they AREN'T definite kills, etc.

Yeah because as far as I was concerned, people who merely get injured in real life mass murders and still make it out aren't counted in the number of people the mad gunman killed... injured (or "downed" in TLOU terms), sure. A casualty? Maybe, depending on how you use the word. But a murder victim? lolno.

 

Also, I don't give a mile high club (kudos to anybody who knows why I'm using that term) about stats in this game. ND finally made an MP game where stats can be totally meaningless, take advantage of the opportunity and play for... wait for it... *gasp* FUN!

I do see a problem with that. The problem is you didn't listen to a word I said. Let me repost it, and maybe you will see it this time...

 

"Downs only count once the enemy has been taken out entirely. Even if a teammate finishes them off with an execution, you get the kill for it since you're the one who downed him. The teammate just gets XP for the execution."
