I don’t like the GP system as I think it overly rewards players and doesn’t allow for effective skill-based points distribution. In nearly every match of KOTH that have played all players have a similar score, despite there being observable differences in individual performance.
The Elimination in KOTH after an update will reduced from 2 to 1 GP. I don’t like this change as it further marginalizes skill in a ranked mode. Kills and assists shouldn’t be scored the same. Additionally I think assists should only be rewarded if a player does equal to or above a specific amount of damage.
I don’t see how the current GP system is assessing player skill. I have played KOTH matches were I couldn’t earn more GP in the 3rd round. The system marginalizes skill by overly awarding points for assists (regardless of damage and engagement). Additionally the GP system allows weaker players to catch up to their more skilled teammates during a match.
Eliminations and now GP have made Gears 5 a less skill focused game than Gears 4. What is the point of having a ranking system, when the system used to score your performance in a match doesn’t effectively measure skill . Players with similar ranking used to have similar skill. However as of operation 4, in my opinion weaker players are progressing upwards due to the GP system.
