Here"s what the good player gets in DMs:
- $250, $500 for being killed while on killstreak
- BST for being killed as Power Player
- Take double damage from other players when on killstreak
- Location constantly shown on the minimap as a large, red blip as power player
- Bonus RP capping at about 2.5x (Really the only nice thing killstreakers and power players get)
Bad players that die 3+ times w/o killing anyone can choose to reveal all player blips, deal quadruple (4x!) dmg until they finally kill someone, or hide their own blip. Then of course there's all the advantages and rewards I explained earlier that they have against killstreakers and power players.
I become power player a lot, and can I just say, it is FRUSTRATING having all these bounties and disadvantages tacked on me just for doing well in a game. I've just started to avoid being the power player now after numerous occasions of enemy teams chasing after my big red blip on the minimap...
TL;DR I hate the power player feature, and wish it never existed.
there are so many problems with deathmatchs tbh, apart from the problems with power player as you so rightly mentioned , the blips not being constantly on/the lack of a COD 3 second scan style radar makes the minimap confusing as f*ck and the need to call lester to reveal players every minute is a f*cking joke, how am i supposed to have a proper fight when im getting my blower out constantly ?
The created deathmatches were supposed to be my way of finally being able to jet fight in teams instead of a free for all.
Except the jets don't respawn when they die so you have to pray someone doesnt destroy all the empty jets on the floor and it wont allow team only spawn points, so if someone died nearer the other teams base they spawn there, meaning its really likely all of one teams jets will be done whilst 9-10 are at the other teams base where nobody can get to, if you try to just make it one big spawn base then you just end up with people killing every jet and spawnkilling the helpless people on the floor.
This is if you can even get anyone to join with the f*cked up matchmaking system. I've decided to basically never play a deathmatch other than senora airstrip or fort zancudo as that is the only mode r* didn't TOTALLY f*ck. I'm most annoyed that they didn't make their own team vehicle deathmatches from the start really though as its obviously possible and would be f*cking great.
