"We had a Draw" 6030 vs 9740 points

Postby Yugo Power » Mon 2 Apr 2012 15:09

hmmm i just played a online round and we had a draw. The problem is just that my team had 3710 points more.

How can this be?

Another thing was i had a mi-24 with spetnatz in it and it changed name to "gunship helicopter" and was flying high like a comercial airliner.

(pleas look away from my spelling since english is not my primary language)

i am P!zz3d off cause i lost my winstreak.

Replay?

I've seen some odd things with draws as well. Most of the time it seems to be 10% difference, but I had a ~4100 vs ~3500 game the other night which showed up as a draw. Can't quite work it out.

It was a timed game. Yours looks like it was as well. Maybe there's a bug here?

I can't even see what purpose a draw has in the game. What is wrong with a simple win/lose? I absolutely love those close games where you try to get the winning shot, but then it gets spoiled after you "win" as the game is a draw, and you lose your win streak (afaik) even though you did "win".

Draw needs to go, it serves no purpose at all that I can see other then to annoy the "winner".

The purpouse of a draw is to diseminate from a meaningless victory, 150 points can be one tank or a platoon of infantry, eitherway in the grand sceme of things, the casualties are so high on either side that it was stalemate with one gaining a slight advantage

I was in a 4v4 game and we got a 'minor victory' with a win of 5200 to 9800 or something after killing their last command vehicle. Personally I thought we comprehensively kicked the other team's ass.

My guess is that 6000 points is a magical limit. Since both players went above it the game ended in draw. 5500 to 10000 would've been a minor victory or a draw.
