Q U O T E
The current "meta" gives a lot of points and experience for kills and very, very little for assists. But this is a team-based game. Are there any plans to change this, or is this how we are supposed to be playing?
Properly tracking and awarding assists are a very important part of a team-based game, and we want to reward these team-play dynamics as much as possible to encourage players working together. The current scoring system in the game rewards the same 'kill' event to more than one player, so long as they have contributed a substantial portion of the damage (>50% of the base health value) to the destroyed enemy ship. Additionally, the person that gets the final hit on a ship also gets 'kill' credit. So in Dreadnought, kills are the assists in a way. In actuality, an 'assist' in-game is triggered when someone just scrapes the killed enemy, damaging >10% of that ship's base health, and that is the reason they award less score.
We are also planning to add a completely new system that will grant additional points for specific ship class and team-based actions, such as tanking and healing. Additionally, our current iteration of the scoring system grants the same amount of points no matter what ship tier you use. We know that isn't exactly fair, because there's a big difference between healing someone on Tier-I versus on Tier-IV. We are looking into changing this scaling as well and will have more info about that update in the future.
