So premium bonuses boost your SCORE and not just the xp you get?

… That may be the single stupidest design decision in history. It’s literally pay to win, what the hell. If that’s true, that significantly reduces my desire to play the game any further. :(

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Deathmatch scoring.

So, what determines how Deathmatch scoring works? The last few games I’ve been in I’ve come in second, despite having ~50% more kills and less deaths (and thus a significantly higher KD) than the guy who won. What mechanic am I missing that lets them do so much worse and yet I still lose? I’m using my sonars and mortar strikes, I’m getting headshots reasonably frequently, I get kill streaks, and yet I can go 36 and 9 and lose to some guy with 23 kills and more deaths.

Should I just be doing like everyone else and hiding in the corner with a sniper rifle for longshot bonuses or what? It certainly isn’t rewarding “walk around killing guys en masse and having the most kills” like deathmatch would imply.
