    Scoring System Oddity

    I showed up at a darkmatter arkfall and only put maybe no more than 20 rounds into the tachmag drive when it ended and I got # 11 with over 100k score?
    Seems a bit flawed.

    1.05 shotgun mag boost? REALLY?

    not an oddity. you cot there in time for a critical kill, which gives you a 100k point bonus to your score

    The window for getting the critical kill bonus has been broadened from 0.x seconds (very low) to something like 1.0 or maybe even 2 seconds so it has become a lot easier to get the bonus. At least this is what Tekrunner told me and he usually seems to know his ****.

    It just seemed odd to spend so little time there, shoot a short burst into the monolith, and end up on the leaderboard at all.

    I placed 10th tonight in a dark matter arkfall that just ended. I was there for about 1/2 the major, did no minors, and mostly did damage with a sniper. Only had 3 kills and I placed much higher than those with a couple dozen kills. Odd indeed.

    Remember, they did this new scoring system so that players couldn't tag an ark fall and drive away gaining full rewards. Now all you do is wait till the boss shows up and time a power kill shot and end up with top score. Lets not forget the new scoring system was to also allow players the need to group up and play together, to bad dlp 5 made that point moot and is now better to solo content than grouping.

    last night at 3 monoliths in a row I pretty much only got to pump a few rounds into the tachmag drive with overcharge and got the power kill worth about 260,000 points! Keys and arkforge galore!
