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.
