You can't spot players and still be able to turn on the ticket. Once you see names, ticket choice is off.

My team was me and 2 other f2p noobs that left at the end. So I had a crap load of kills. The other team had 3 f2p noobs that sucked hard. My highest was 45-0. It was pure luck with a little skill. The game was a 3v4. When the game started the split screen noobs on my team left. So it was a 1v4. The other team had split screeners with 2 other level 4 and 5 players. I thought I was going to go the legendary unknown 50-0 but people started to join at the end. Smiley Sad

ah I still remember the 3 matches I played in the RPG lab...

 

Match 1: 8 of my 11 deaths were TKs

Match 2: a teammate kept running in front of me til I killed him and got kicked.

Match 3: Half our team got TKed at the start and we wouldn't respawn so I left...

Oh, I'm just leaving. -Best Uncharted character ever

I have Platinum all four times now, once I got it in 8 tickets, once in 11, but it isn't 'broken' as it is hard to get, it is broken cause you can legit go 25-0 and still lose. This causes you to get less than 500 points.

You get rewarded solely for how you play alone.

 

But you get punished when your team loses.

People say that it's broken because either the teams are extremely unfair or they lose their tickets because the game decided to kick them out of a game completely out of their own will.

I think the hatred stems from the fact that it's more luck-based than skill-based.

I'll Use my ticket tweak to reacht platinum Smiley Wink

This defines broken.

 

One person gets to prop up a team of people who shouldn't even be playing the game, I know n00bs learn somewhere but hell, some of these people aren't even worthy of the term n00b, they are beneath n00bs.

 

"Guy sees opponent with RPG, Guy chases him"... WHY? WHY? Why the **bleep** would you do that? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know you are going to die if you do that... A n00b may not see it, fair enough I can let that go. But chasing someone who has an RPG???  Are you **bleep** kidding me?

 

Those kind of players don't belong on a video game, they simply do not have the brain power to comprehend the situation, RPG vs AK. RPG WINS. It's not hard, you don't have to think it over, it's common sense. Those are the kind of players you get lumbered with the moment you even think about lone wolfing. So forget the tournament tickets.

 

People like that do not belong gaming. They simply do not have the intelligence.

 

Even more backwards is:- IF you were in a party, it's harder for you to get kills and get a decent tournament score also.

 

There is absolutely no point in using them in a party apart from getting rid of the annoying message. ND seriously messed up on that considering an estimate of 95% of the userbase parties up. Thus losing a massive chunk of sales.

 

The stupid thing is between ND's awful DLC's and stuff. If I was in charge they would have been a multi billionaire company in no time. Then again..They could have put a monkey in charge and they would have probably turned over better profits.

 

The business model is just atrocious. Bad business models really upset me, I just don't like stupidity and that is exactly what comes to mind when people don't capitalize on things in the right way. It just makes me feel even more alone with my intellect.
