    NOTD 2: Leaderboard
    A long way to the top

    So the every-mysterious Leaderboard has been mentioned once or twice and people have been asking about it, so I'll give a rundown of what's going on to address concerns.

    Leaderboard Organization
    Each major game mode (Campaign, Survival, Black Ops) will have its own Leaderboard that will display the five highest-scoring teams at the end of a match.


    Qualifying for the Leaderboard
    Campaign:
    Complete the match.
    Survival: Die or complete the match.
    Black Ops: Die or complete the match.

    It is currently undecided if Competitive is going to have its own leaderboard due to the inherently "cheesable" nature of a PvP environment due to collusion.


    Scoring on the Leaderboard
    Where players will be placed on the Leaderboard (if at all) is deteremined by Points. Points can be influenced a variety of ways, and have no bearing on gameplay.

    Players earn points based on:
    • Mission Completion: This includes main missions, side missions, and sub missions. Missions must be marked as "complete" by the game itself for it to count for points.
    • Difficulty: Normal and Nightmare will add a flat amount of points to the end score result.
    • Speed: No details on what "speed" will involve, but completing modes in under a certain amount of time will provide bonus points.

    Players lose points based on:
    • Mission Failure: Ignoring or failing any mission will result in points being deducted.
    • Taking Hits: Each hit (on a non-tank class) will result in a point being deducted.
    • Deaths: A player dying will result in points being deducted.

    For the leaderboard, what if we got portrait boarders for our points?

    That's a pretty neat idea. I'll file it under "maybe".
  4. so we are in the leaderboard as teams, right? if so, can a very active player be in leaderboard with more than one team ?

    Yes.
