Engineer Scoring: Engineers should Score Points When Enemies Damage Their Constuctions, & Assists when Allies kill using their Mounted Crossbows

2 3

Hi Devs and Mordhauers,

Engineers should get points when an enemy destroys their buildings.

This would incentivise tactical play, rewarding engineers for putting blockades in the right places. It wouldn't be easily exploitable either, as players couldn't farm their own team hitting their constructions.

Similarly, Engineers should get Assists for teammates' kills made with Mounted Crossbows they built.

As an Engineer it's hard to score any points, but you're often doing a valuable job for the team. This would help fix that, and reward you for your hard work shoring up your team's defences or building useful things.

Please let me know what you think and vote up to help raise this idea to the front! I created an account just to post :)

The Assists for Mini Ballista should def. happen, right now most Engis just use the Toolbox to either block the path to Objectives or camp with the Ballista since it has virtually no downtime. The Ballista should get some changes that encourage plays to build the Ballista as a support Tool instead of their personal medival MG. Maybe increase ammo capacity and reduce the ammo generation rate.

The other idea is a bit more complex since it could be very easily exploitable and Barricades are already really strong.

Thanks for the reply :) How is it exploitable and how could this be remedied?
