Just posting this to be looked into as time allows :)

I'd like to be clear on the distribution of points on a team mercenary game, now that the point system has been implemented that you are immediately awarded points, when you take out a player.

In a team game, if your team-mate takes out a player, currently only the team mate that takes out the player gets the points, so how is this beneficial as a team? In the end, the "Team" doesn't actually win.. only the Player who took out the last player wins the points.

This could also entice your own team mate to take u out, and get your points and win the game, and leave you with nothing.

Can this be worked, so that in a team mercenary game, that both/all team mates, split all points, of all take outs, along the way?

I hope this makes some sense. Thanks!

The general idea for team mercenary is that, yes, points should be split between teammates regardless of who actually made the kill.

thanks, inca. thats what i was thinking.

is this currently what is in effect, or are the developers still working it out to be split?

for instance

09/09/10 12:46:33 bitglory Player Icon bitglory bitglory is victorious! Awarded 26 points
09/09/10 12:46:33 ashr Player Icon ashr Eliminated by bitglory

Would be good to say the split between team mates in the record, no?

yeah.. this is something that definitely needs to be addressed. if you don't get the points in a doubles mercenary game - and your partner gets "everything".. it's a total pain and completely unjust. i feel for you asunder, raped in the diplo's raped in the points.. that game hated you.

If you could play team games for assassin and mercenary back in 2011, why can't we now?

Assassins was taken out because some teams were dominating the scene to such an extent that it was deemed unfair to new players to just stumble into. It is available still in the tournament section. as for team merc.. dunno - I've never tried to make a team merc game. Probably because of the unfair points split described here.
