Disputed...help

Post by limavictor426 » Sun Apr 25, 2010 1:19 pm

Just finished a game on disputed. I had two men left as did my opponent. I captured two boxes and left the map and my opponent didnt capture any, i lost with a score of -30. Dont get it. I know you need 3 boxes to win outright but I thought two was still better than nothing, I thought I had won!!! LOL Can someone explain how it works, thanks :?

As of now, the scoring for all of the game modes is horribly broken. In a few patches or so, most of the scoring bugs should be sorted out.

So did I do the right thing by trying to capture two boxes or if you cant get 3 should you stay and fight it out?

My understanding was that if one team is eliminated or all escapes, the remaining boxes go to the remaining player. So the only sure win is capture at least 3 and leave.

Unless of course you killed a number of guys that collected at least 2 boxes, then those boxes wouldnt score, and your 2 out of 3 would win.

Do you have a game number i can view?

Yes so in that case, i think the three boxes left on the map go to him and thats why he won.

Thanks, that makes sense, so if you dont have 3 men dont leave the map.....only leave if you have 3 boxes.

One man can carry more than one box, so you can get all 5 with just one man if he can sneak through and get out.

I did not know that either. It should be added to the help description of the game type.
