How exactly do you know they self-destructed on purpose? Trying to escape from you they may have just triggered the wrong ability at the right time to go splat.

You also have to realize that you are likely the better pilot, otherwise they would be chasing you into an asteroid rather than the other way around.

And the only way you could add a penalty without punishing newb players would be to simply remove the mechanic, thus removing a certain level of skill needed to fly.

[QUOTE=Beowulfxx;7016400]I've played over 100 matches since GSF came out and I am a little disturbed by the antics of some players refusing to let another have the kill and instead they purposely run into a roid or wall when the jig is up. I have seen some players do this every time their hull is smoking or they are out matched.

I honestly feel that in any given match, the players should receive ONE self destruct for poor piloting and after that a requisition penalty come into play for each self destruct after...

-_- What is wrong with this community?! 90% of the time it's not even there fault. The game isn't even ABOUT kills!

People who just focus on kills in GSF have no brains. STOP BLAMING PEOPLE WHEN IT'S NOT THERE FAULT

I really don't care if they do it. If I'm winning a fight to the point that their either so flustered they mash spacebar and decorate the side of a asteroid or because they feel they will not win and would rather not give me the kill.

Either way I just defended the point and get to keep sucking sweet sweet defender points off it.

At the very least you should get an assist if they smack into something after you did dmg to them. (Not sure if you do or not as it's hard to track them.)

edit: I agree with the above, there should be no penalty for it. It would just negatively affect newer players and people that do it on purpose would continue. As was said it's not about stats it's about winning.

Thank you for your insightful and compelling comment.

None of them hit barrel roll when facing a solid object.
None of them fled is panic and just plain crashed.
None of them hit the 90 degree escape without looking down.
None of the just plain suck at flying because GSF has been out only a week.

Nope, they all did it to spite you personally
