SA - 9000pts from PTO and ... 2 kills.

Had a chuckle tonight -playing on S.A. and just doing PTO - no dog fighting and a lot of time spent at 2x. Made over 9000pts but with only 2 kills.

Standout comment - from my own team - “how can the guy in second only have 2 kills -wtf”

Never actually realised you could do that well basically just minding your own business and keeping a low profile while getting on with it.

    SA is the best mode for rewards on PTO easily.

    Yup. Easiest way to get on the leaderboard is SA is to PTFO.

    Exactly, I love seeing someone on my team with a few kills but on the leaderboard in this mode. I know for sure they died a lot but it doesn’t matter. While everyone was killing they were knocking out the objective before tickets could be lost. Kamikaze my brother/sisters!

    For the people that are hunger for stats page that means a lot, thats not my case.
    Today I did 17740 points on Hoth with 1 kill only as specialist, people were like wtf.

    As looks like you are op secretary, would op be doing that if we had a stats page?

    Not sure - it hadn’t even occurred to me to check the score board until the chat comment came up and I looked at the scoreboard - but didmt look at the deaths. I know it matters to some people, but not so much to me - especially on games where the other team has the life cap but not mine.

    As mentioned a lot of the game was at 2x, hence the PTO score -that implies not too many as keeping a 2x going is difficult if dying all the time.

    I do find there are games where you can just pootle around with no one noticing - too busy killing each other and chasing revenge markers and so on.

    In fairness, it doesn’t pay well usually. If you pick up the 500/1000 or a very good run on hitting the generators or beam stations, then yes but otherwise it’s not much.

    If you get luck on timing, left alone etc then yes, it can happen, as it did with me -but it is unusual.

    I posted it because it was unusual and amusing to me - because it doesn’t happen often with that low a kill count.

    Also an argument on some maps that the objective IS to kill people as they have life limits. Hitting the bombers, transports etc drops it quicker, but just blowing up anything that moves counts too. But only if that’s your teams objective on that map of course.

    Yes. HTH.

    This is a game. I don’t get paid to play it and my success (or otherwise) within it impacts my life outside the game exactly zero, therefore ratios - outside of personal pride - are irrelevant.
