How does the bonus EXP work in TCon? (for getting multiple kills in a row)

#1ZBug_Posted 4/20/2010 12:23:17 PM
Like the other day I got 6 kills in a row and it said plus 200% exp. Do I have stay alive for the rest of the match for it to count? Or does it give me the bonus still if someone kills me and stops my killing streak?

each kill is about 2 points, 20 kills in a streak nets you a 2000% increase in points per kill.
so when you get a Reign of Terror, you now get 40 points per kill.

As much as I like the kill steak exp thing, there is one thing that would always bother me.

My play style is super aggressive, and I average 2-3 kills for every death on team reaper.
But I'll also get like 40 kills a marathon.

40 kills w/ 16 deaths puts me at + 24 for my team. And I'll earn about 120 points after everything is all said and done.
However, someone who got 10 kills w/ 0 deaths only gives their team + 10 . but they will receive 200 points.

Not only that, its not usually they're so good that they arn't dying, but that they are just letting somebody else die for them, usually someone like me who is on the front lines.

I think the system could use a little tweaking to help stimulate things.

Actually there can be an easy fix without changing that. Add a second way to get just as much EXP, that doesn't require killstreaks.

Or you could have killstreaks run out, like in MW Arcade Mode. That would force people to keep up their rate of murder while still trying to stay alive.

To The_Shader: Actually, you're incorrect. At a kill streak of 20, the experience is at 1000 percent, not 2000, which means that from that point on each kill gives 20 experience.
