There needs to be a penalty for death. Player A goes 10-2 and Player B goes 15-10. Currently, Player B gets a higher score because of the kills. That's trash.

as much as i like leveling up, i enjoy shooters without it more. halo 1/2 were so perfectly balanced and when you went against a level 50 in halo 2 it meant so much more than just they played a lot and had great gear. you know that person had crazy skills and at the same time you didnt have to worry about him having a scope or gun 10x better than the crap you did. everyone was on the same playing field with true skills being the only difference

rewarding a player for playing is nice though so i see the appeal and also think that becuase of that, counterstrike had the best system to date imo. get a certain amount of cash in the beginning, buy gear. get kills and do good things get more money for better gear in the next round, win and get even more.

a system like that not only keeps rounds even but it gives players a reason to not only do well each round but to win each round too

but what if Player A has just been camping in a corner all match while Player B's been capping/defending control points? You know, helping the team.

I see you working. There needs to be a happy medium. Campers shouldn't be penalized for camping (go and find them). However, there are intangibles like you mention.
