Re: Winning Matches is Pointless

We'll eventually work on better messaging and I'm pushing to get rewards in for playing very well (winning every round in Survivors, going the whole match without a death). I'm not promising anything and if we do get around to this it will be down the road.

Remember the good old days when people just played for fun? Leaderboards only existed in arcades? I miss those days.

Then gaming evolved and you could keep track of your statistics. Don't act like games back then didn't have leaderboards or high scores.

Some of them didn't, some did, the ones that did were arcade games.

Forget a win ratio, add a heal/revive ratio of some sort.

End of match, it says "You Win" and I'm happier than when it says, "You lose."

Stats?  Who gives a ********************?

I'd honestly just want this, so that this can kill KDR, and then we wouldn't have to deal with BS like whether a down should be a kill, etc etc.

If they take away KDR, people will argue for it back, and argue Exes/Downs while they did it.

Hell I don't know anymore. Do I *really* have to play with statfreaks? Can I have a statfreak filter?
