Also any way to wavier the double exp ban? Much I usually dont care if its on or off, Id like to prevent explosive spamming a la FF5 if at all possible.
I'd rather just ban the specific Explosive weapons you want to be avoided. I strongly dislike EF in organized play due to the fact that it also nerfs already balanced weapons (SPAS, HVS45, Warpy, Deat). I personally don't mind Shrieker or TPC in Hardcore either, but I see why some dislike them.
Also, I would like to counter the accusation that FF5 spammed explosives in the FF5 vs. LC matches.
I invite everyone to review Mikes videos.
Upon review, youíll find that in every match LC scored explosive kills before FF5, and in the first match, LC scored 7 explosive kills while FF5 scored only 2. This is not counting frags, only explosive weapons.
During the course of all three matches, FF5 only had a total of 4 more explosive kills than LC. Thatís an average of only 1.33 more explosive kills per match.
Again, these are kills only from weapons, not Frags. If you include Frags both teams had the same total number of explosive kills during the course of the three matches.
Below are the stats. Again this does not include Frag kills.
Match 1 LC explosive kills=7 FF5 explosive kills=2
Match 2 LC explosive kills=5 FF5 explosive kills=8
Match 3 LC explosive kills=3 FF5 explosive kills=9
