Honor Points
« on: May 30, 2014, 04:57:53 PM »

I'm not sure if I just haven't noticed, but S2 just started and there are these things called honor points. I would like to know what are they for and how do you get them?

I am curious to hear an explanation as well. This is one thing, which kills the game: all good ideas are neutralized by the fact, that nobody knows what they are for, how they work, what are the intentions of the devs ...

Should I join the s2 only to find this out, by experimenting, trial and error?
Tempting, but bit wrong timing... maybe, later ;)

Sorry guys, I was away for the weekend.

At the moment honor points do nothing. It will only be calculated weekly and displayed.

We want to add some system that promotes brave and bold attacks. On S2 we will be watching how does it work and probably making some adjustments. When we fine-tune it, we will be adding some prizes to those with high honor. Additional exp for Mechs, perhaps some credit codes.

Can you guess what action(s) bring it for you?

I guess it is calculated from the battles fought (if you are bullying smaller players, you lose them, if you fight even battles, you gain them) - but it is just rough guess ...

Yes, that's correct.

Must admit, speaking strictly about current s3 this far that may seem true... Even should be.
However... I won't place a bet on furek's honor points either.

True enough - I am really curious how it is implemented in detail - is it possible for the biggest player to gain honor points? Any attack is actually against smaller opponent in this case ...

If honor points were admitted by keeping the game interesting and not a damn sim city experience my friend, you'd be at 0.1 and I'd be at 10^n :) Have you finished your book called "How to go killing NPCs all day and still feel cool about yourself"? :)
I'm just teasing. With the current state of this game, honor points are not really anything that could curve up that flat line of MH's EKG...

So have these changes, preferably the credit codes, been made yet. Are there any rewards on s1 for high honor points?

So, with latest changes honor points creeping on s3 as well suddenly...
Well, I'm not strongly against this, but not only the initial values seem to not make much sense (or, they simply inverse proportional to player activity, largely), but the issue is, it breaking individual statistics display (that SHA thing that gives lots of valuable info if you learn to read it).
This needs a fix asap.
