Faction Kill Points from Traps

    I really think that the person who kills an enemy faction member with a trap should get the kill points for it... who agrees?

    Makes sense. I agree 100%

    Their trap kills someone, then it means they should get the credit. Just as poisoned food, when it kills someone, can get you a murder count.

    Who should get the point? The tinker who crafted the trap or the player that placed it?

    IMO neither should.

    No you don't get points and no you shouldn't get points. People die on traps a lot and it would be ridiculous to a) put people in stat from traps or b) give people points for not doing anything accept sit there.

    Traps are there own reward,, they do a lot of dmg so you can hide behind them.

    if you are killed by a trap do you go into stat?
     
  7. You go in to stat loss so they should get a kill point.

    No you do not go in stat loss from dieing to a trap, no you should not get a point for killing somebody with a trap. Just imagine the can of worms that would create.... My trap remover should get kill points for removing traps because they kill me if I fail!

    Tinkers spend 250 silver creating a trap - should be a reward in addition to helping the cause.
