The calculation could be average of non-deadbeaters from winning team in comparison to all players from losing team.


no, i mean the non dead beat would get all the points, from your example all 40. i just played an 8 player game, my partner deadbeated on the 2nd round and was kicked out on the 4th. i won it in the 19th round. i'm freak'n amazing, conquering the 6 other players who were still in as 3 teams. i should get 100% of the victor's points.

the deadbeat gets 0 and the surviving partner gets 100% of the victor's points for doing all the work.

Eh... That's not that hard in 8 player doubles.

I don't think the points can work out here, but I like the sentiment.

But it wouldn't do much to prevent the 'tactical' deadbeating discussed above. In fact it could lead to a more experienced player tricking less experienced partners into deadbeating for tactical reasons and steal all their points for himself.

Agreed. It would definitely have to NOT give the survivor all of the points. As chapcrap said, the points may not work out...and yet, I don't personally find that to be critical. I don't think that should be a relevant reason for rejecting this suggestion.

And your opponents should apparently lose all their points...

And by the way, to become more serious, I support the suggestion.

I like it!

However, I can see an upcoming abuse where multis may purposefully deadbeat to give their 'main' account all the points. Therefore the winner should only get the set 50% of the game's winnings. Also if only 50% of the points will be awarded then a way to prevent losing the other half to cyberspace is to have the losing players contribute 50%. So in essence a deadbeated teammate may prove the perseverance and dedication of the winner, but it'll let the losers off the hook by only losing half of their intended loot.

By the way would this translate without any hiccups if this were to be applied to trips and quads?
