I'm loving ranked mode so far, I am having a blast with my friends. However, I've noticed something among the people that I play with that didn't used to happen.
Everyone in my ranked mode steals kills just to get +1 RP. This is bad for 2 reasons,
1.) The person who did all of the damage to the enemy doesn't get any credit for what they've done. Since damage is worthless, you've just been robbed.
2.) The teammate that stole your kill frequently puts themselves in a bad position, they tunnel vision and just try to get that kill no matter what. This teammate usually dies in the process, leaving your squad with only 2 members setting you up for a bad late game chance of winning.
Damage wouldn't count for knocked opponents.
It would be better, in my opinion, to get +1 RP for every ~150-175 damage done per game, up to 5 times. This would make it less worthwhile to finish off opponents that have nothing during the start of the game because you wouldn't immediately get a point. It would help in the late game as people typically have better armor.
What do you think?
