Be adviced: Some strong language may occur.
I want to bring up an issue mostly about capping points.
Currently when capping you get respect (which is for the most part pretty useless) no matter what, and you get Poptabs (what most people are after) in looting crates. The problem I have is the way the rewards gets distributed.
- Story Mode (you may skip to the conclution if you dont like reading) -
Once upon a time I decided to go for a Capture point. I roll out in my amazing Quad bike like the champ i am, I scan the capture point from a "safe" area while sniping off the enemy AI's; One by one they fall to the ground!
After displaying my awesome sniping skills i decide to drive into the cap point so I can get my hands on those glorious Poptabs. I get the message that says i have to cap for 10 Minutes. Thinking to myself "It's too late for me to turn around now". I decide to continue my mission.
[Enemy AI are comming to retake Capture point B]
Fearing for my life i reload my trustworthy sniper rifle. I spot the enemy AI and take them all out one by one.
A few minutes passes as suddenly 2 rapid waves of AI spawn to yet again take over my capture point. There's too many of them. I get overrun and im now hiding amongst 15+ enemy AI just inches away from me. I take off my silencer thinking i need every bullet to do as much dammage as it can, I turn on full auto on my gun thinking spray and pray for dear god..
The time has come for me to show what im made of. I pop out from my hiding spot shooting 3 enemy AI's within a few seconds. Knowing that ive drawn their attention towards myself i chug out a few grenades and take out a fuckton of AI's. With the adrenaline rush i now have i run arround shooting everything i see, i take cover like a champ, avoid getting shot at all costs. Ive entered FUCKING RAMBO MODE at this stage!
After killing every AI in the compound i take a quick moment for myself to catch my breath, thinking "dang im a GOD".
Ive finally battled for 10 excruciating minutes and with a relief the message pops up "Capture point B has been completed". Thinking to myself ive made it. I locate my glorious reward crates, i rush to the first one so eager to get my hands on the poptabs ive displayed so much skill for. Thinking now i can finally upgrade my crib so i can build myself a pimping pool i open the first crate.
Twenty Three Mafakking Thousand Poptabs! Im swimming in poptabs now, i can retire!
- Is what i tought...
Choose your respawn location..
Turns out little Billy had been chilling in his lovely bush for 10 minutes watching some lovely hentai porn while waiting for me to grab my reward.
Now hopefully you got my point.
Currently there are no reasons for players to contest capture points because they can just claim all of the rewards for themselves when 10 minutes has passed, because they just sit 800 meters away in a bush with a sniper while jerking off.
I believe there should be some secured reward for the
players who actually do the mission. Im talking maybe 40% of the poptabs into their locker once the mission is over (rest in loot crate).
I literally did a capture point 30 minutes ago soloing the entire thing only to get sniped off when trying to claim my reward. I know that there were at least 5 Enemy players just camping the crates with snipers. And this is my 4th time in a row getting sniped while looting poptabs.
You may say that i just suck or whatever but you really cant collect your reward because the loot animation freezes you, therefore making you an easy target served on a silver plate.
Also i know someone will comment "But you get your respect after capping".. To that i say respect is absolutely useless. I have 100K+ respect and i can spend 2 minutes looting and get better gear than what im starting at with 100k respect.. And please fill me in if theres anything i dont know about that i can use respect for; besides getting a tiny bit better spawn gear.
- CONCLUTION -
The flaw in capping atm is that there is no reason for players to contest CP's. Resulting in players just waiting for other players to start a CP and then just sniping them off after 10 minutes has passed with little to none efforts, while the person who capped is left with nothing but 10K useless respect.
A way to fix this is simply (as mentiohned before) give the capper some real reward so its actually worth contesting them instead of just sitting in a bush 800 meters away for 10 minutes. And if people are still just camping in a bush.. well then they loose out on 40% of the poptab reward.
I hope someone else has seen this problem and agrees. If you think my idea of locker secured poptabs is shit.. by all means post your opinion below (but show a little respect). V V
