play to win. winner takes all.
If you play in a team and get knocked out then you will still win points ...how is this any different? But your point is well made. Once I get some more feedback on the issue I may set up a poll.
even though you are eliminated from games you live on as part of that team.
this will allow players to say 'hey, i'll help you to eliminate the guy coming 2nd and we'll share the points. this has been suggested before and rejected.
Without putting too fine a point on the issue, just because a half baked idea has been rejected is no reason not to let a full baked idea as here be considered and accepted.
There are two issues. The first is whether we should have a setting that allows people to select the mode that round limits work. The second issue is how points are allocated. As to the first issue, by allowing round limits it is a logical extension to allow modes. As to the second issue, I am satisfied that the correct method for allocating points is to the survivors (and there might be, say, 3 in an 8 player game). If you can think of a better idea then let's have it because the only other valid suggestion (and we have moved on from that) was to not allocate any points to anyone on the basis that no one won!!
Are you advocating we go back to that suggestion just to stop cheaters cheating? I have some deep seated philosophical objection against allowing criminals and swindlers from running my life and I would need some serious convincing to suggest that there is any meaningful benefit to the CC community at large to pander to a few fools! But I digress
