Topic.

There will always be teamkills, but giving players a tiny, meaningless premium reward for not teamkilling will surely discourage it quite a bit.

Premium, because most freeloaders lose their mind about getting premium currency.

 

EDIT: Addition to the idea, if it's implemented - notify the players about this in the loading screen tips.

I quite like the idea, if you do good you get rewarded in some way, sure accidents still happen but overall it would reward the ones not shooting green tonks.

I suspect 5-10 gold here and there won't discourage it completely. As most will still see it's "worth it". Tho what you could add on top of that, is a bigger reward for every 10 or so you get without any TK's, as a TK would reset that streak. Say a "care package" with a little gold, silver or some free xp etc. As a bigger reward for a good streak might not be worth losing over a TK, vs 5 gold now and then.

Nice proposal actually. Battle-Buddy is the one award you like your teammates to collect. Giving it a small gold reward can be a nice incentive. 10 gold would feel nice, as that's the amount needed to demount an equipment.

Would also be nice for WG, as people who have collected a small amount of prem currency (gold) are more likely to spend some cash to get some extra.

 

So overall, win-win imo.

Dear Derethim, 

Great idea, however would mere mortals be able to get the coin, and Dingers get the Rounds ;)

Regards

Tommy.

Good idea. I would give 10 gold AND 10 Bonds for "Battle Buddy" as an incentive...

Why not just make it impossible for teamkilling to start with..  Other game developers got in their games, CSGO among others if I recall, problem solved.  Its silly and quite frankly stupid mindset thinking of rewarding people for NOT being duchbags. And you cant stop people from being duchbags to start with, assholes will be assholes, so only way to solve it, is to remove the ability to be a duchbag.

doesn't quite work that way

 

without tking being present, you'd have way more blockers and pushers around as they'd know you cant do anything at all about it

atleast with the current system you can track a player that does that and drive off.. no way of doing that if you cant shoot them


 

ofcourse its a bad thing and it should never happen, but by stopping it entirely, would just force other forms of trolling to emerge
