NPC attack, no damage received then no experience.
« on: March 29, 2013, 03:18:40 AM »

As it stands now, if a player sends mechs to kill an NPC and the mechs do not take damage during the battle they recieve no experience.  I think that this should be changed to receiving full experience or even some bonus experience for doing the job most efficiently.

This is discussed countless times, if you do quick search over the forum.

Probably one of best threads abaut:

There another, earlier and huge, but also somewhat deeper:

The devs are pretty sure about no damage - no exp as concept, and defend it in many ways.
So this is just a peculiarity of this game, weirdness, if you like, but that is how it is there, like you that or not.

When they finally put trough the years-old promised pilot upgrade, a experience system will perhaps also change, but doubt that radically.

Is it?
I've seen similar ideas in RPG games. If you hit low-level mod with a hi-level character, exp gets reduced.

I think the EXP should be awarded for what Mech got hit and destroyed what moss, besides vulture once she returned to the base of the last 4 hp and EXP got 13 ​​only  ???
