Default Hide (or delay) scoreboard

Scoreboard gives "out of character" information, letting you know if enemy is dead when you wouldn't be able to know about it by other means.

Watching own team kills and enemy team deaths you can get a lot of info about situation and e.g. asset state.

It forces every asset player / squad leader to use scoreboard if they want to compete in getting such information. It's typical for many vet players to open scoreboard constantly to check on enemy team death status.

Of course, make it optional so it's a server setting and people can still use it if they like it that way.

This is a good suggestion. I mean, why else there are no kill feed? Because it's arcadey. Also looking at the score board is arcadey. Ofc, I'm also doing that right now, but I'd be happy if this "vanilla feature" would be removed.

But as PR's pace (yes, this game is getting more fast paced then it was) and mentality has changed a lot, I fear that there might be a huge opposition to this.

a nice idea in theory, but they already have delayed your kill until the dead player respawns etc, the scoreboard also doesnt show which players are currently dead for the enemy team so you cannot work out if there tank is currently down by that alone. the scoreboard is also used for balancing reasons by admins. if 1 team has 15 kills 60 deaths, the 2nd team has 60 kills 15 deaths then you know that people need switching.

so just leave that information there and remove it for the individual player

Leave it where? You mean only admins get to see it?

He means the number of kills/deaths per team and remove/delay the individual ones.


Dont question the wikipedia! Just because it reports different things on different languages does not make it unreliable source!

This, it's still a game, folks. And the scoreboard doesn't help at all anymore due to not seeing who's dead or not on the enemy team.

It's not as useful as it was but you can still obtain quite a lot of information by constantly check your kills.

Like virus said, it's still a game and it's fine where it is. Sure you can check the scoreboard to see if that enemy CAS blew up on the way home or if the squad you just engaged has given up, but I think it's fine where it is at the moment. It was definitely a lot worse before when you could see who was alive or not.

Knowing who is in a particular asset is not really that helpful anyway, and you can usually tell by looking at the enemy teams names. (I'm talking about you, asset whores )

Removing it can screw up a lot for admins, someone on enemy team could go 50-0 with hacks and no-one would know who it is for instance. Plus it's a fun thing to see when you go 15-1 in K/D (even though it doesn't necessarily have to mean that someone is good.
