Gotta agree that kill messages must stay there, without them we all would be just unkown soldiers whom no one knows and all our epic kills would vanish without no one else knowing them except yourself

I once suggested this kind of a deal:

- xxx [weapon] yyy kill messages at upper left corner of the screen would be removed.
- xxx [teamkilled with zzz] yyy kill messages at upper left corner of the screen would stay.
- You killed xxx / you were killed by yyy -message at lower part of the left side would stay.

I second this :)

Seems like the most balanced suggestion.

Its like appeasement.

And its 'balanced' according to? You still get an alert to go revenge and know if the non-hit detected kill was succesful. So again, balanced how?

Balanced as in, everyone should be happy.
I really wanted all kill messages to disappear, but pretty much everyone is against this.
At least they won't know what killed them if the top-left messages are gone.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  Just because you complain doesn't mean that the whole system should be turned upside down on a whim.  In the end, its up to the devs, and they have given their answer already.

Who said that?
I certainly never did.

Can we focus on the idea, not the guy. Thats a fallacious way to argue.

But here's what I can agree with. Its not a fix as much as it is a different approach.

And your argument for dont exactly blo
the counter-arguments out of the water.

Like i said. Mainstream servers like HSLAN should try it 2 days a week, then we see how it goes.

But I wouldnt want it to totally replace. Just give variety

it is useless as you could look at the kill count anyway. this is not going to make the game more realistic or what.

I like your suggestion Thor because I've always found the continuous scrolling kill messages a distraction and rather annoying.

I am a 100% with Natty. If you change this, you will chase a number of people away, myself for one. Right now there is an immersion mode, that is a fine compromise. It takes a lot of hubris to think that everyone should have to conform to what you think is a better way to play. Show us a poll where a clear majority want something like this and you would at least have a leg to stand on.

It puzzles me when people want to change pivotal elements of gameplay this late into the mod. I know we would all like to shape things to our own likings, but at this point most of us are happy with the established system.
