Killstreaks

I think these need to be removed; they encourage running and laming. Deaths were removed from profile to discourage running and laming but that had almost no effect because people still want those 15 kill streak crates.

Thoughts?

I say you just add the box drop to any random kill, and it wont be score streaks. O.o

Why not add a timer that starts in between kills? One minute goes by and their kill streak ends.

I think the team are currently trying to figure out why items are being duped every single day for no reason.

How does removing deaths discourage lamming? If it shows kills them they get a higher number is all. The reason deaths is not shown in most games is to prevent people from feeling bad when they have a lot of deaths.

Check the rental shop.. There's a reason that system was removed.

Last time it was the trade system. At least I think that was the last duping bug.

Nah, wasn't the trade system or anything similar. Following some hardware changes there were some permission errors to adjust. Unixmad and I were working closely to get this resolved and it's all good now There were some issues with the mall failing to check flags properly (z-z) and it caused some issues but we should be back to normal.

But yes, I'm not a fan of the killstreaks in place at the moment. We're working on a bunch of changes and I hope to be rolling them out pretty soon, however it will take time

Theoretically not displaying deaths discourages laming because people won't feel the need to lame their way to a positive K/D
The problem is at this point I don't think the server can be re-taught how to not run or lame since these tactics have been the most successful strategy for the last few years. On top of that we have a pretty laggy server overall (things have gotten way worse in the last 2 years) so it might be too late to save the fun experience that I'm hoping can get brought back.
