So what extra points does collector go towards to?

15 replies 216 views Edited Mar 20, 2014

Downs and executions? I believe they don't count towards heals, revives, nor crafted gifts anymore? If so, I wish they left it as it is. Might as well not use collecter at all.

Yeah it still gives you points for all that plus shivs, mollies, bombs, long ranges, hell even crafting, but not healing or gifting. I just wonder what made them do that, did someone complain about collector, or is this really a nerf to farming?

I remember ND said it was because they felt that revives, healing an gifting was giving people too many parts with collector... yet, you still get added parts for opening a lockbox and "last man standing"

The infected as seen in TLOU Multiplayer:

Runners- Noobs
Stalkers- Covert Training 3 users
Clickers- Constant reloaders
Bloaters- People getting blown up by bombs

With all the actual problems there are in the multiplayer, messing with something that was fine to begin with is one of the dumbest things they've done imo

I recall people complaining about something as small as farming, so like the saying goes,"the nail that sticks out gets hammered"…

I did not complain about any change ND decided to introduce so far, but this one really makes me rage. It takes away most of my fun and incentive to run a pure support class with FAT3, Reviver and Collector. I mean come on, farming?? Really? If people are throwing molotovs at themselves and heal to get parts.. pfff, the enemy team will just throw another mollie / bomb at them or use the time they waste to hit 2 other boxes on the map and get items to craft or get a nice positioning on them, whatever.

I never encountered farmers that much, nor would I care because most of the time if the enemy is doing that stuff they waste time and miss other things they could do in the meantime and will just get owned.

 

Bad idea ND, baaad idea :smileysad:

Headshots, opening lockbox, defending it.
Pretty much everything except gifts and healing.
The only use I see for it is a defending class in interrogation with the military sniper. When they are opening the lockbox, headshot them. You get headshot bonus, down bonus,defending lockbox, attacker downed, and some other things.
But TBH, only popping your head out when someone is at your base in the bleachers of the gym is not the smart way to defend. You could easily get overwhelmed if the guy has armor, he'll realize his helmet got shot off and locate you on the map since the Mil sniper isnt silenced.
So in a nutshell, collector is useless.

I encountered less than 10 boosters my entire play time with this game, and most of them were not only in my party, but only did it because we were winning by so much (LMS stage btw) they needed the parts! I'd help just to be a good sport, but honestly does it really hurt anybody?

It helps when you run Crafter and everyone's full on gifts, you just throw a mollie, heal and gift em. I remember this one guy towards the end of a game even wanted me to farm points off of him without asking, and I already met my quota. But actually seeing 2 guys in a corners reviving and healing each other? Very rare...
