Hi,

in order to encourage more usage of the map, I think it could be a good idea to show the (c)map usage time of a player as a stat on the score board.

It doesn't have to be the ingame one. The ns2+ player stats summary at the end of the game might suffice.

A new player would notice, that those who are good at killing are also those with a high (c)map uptime. New players would realize the importance of the (c)map faster, if it is a player stat that is as important as kills/deaths/assists/accuracy.

Like so:

    Map is too strong, make it so the map is a physical tablet and the marine has to put his gun away to use it. :tongue:

    Guys! I'm super cereal right now! Map usage is a major issue for new players.

    It needs to be valued very important, so that new players realize its importance faster and get better faster.

    It also needs to be not valued too highly.
    I'm addicted to my map, i have it out all the time.
    Even when i die.

    (in-fact, it's usually the cause of me dying D:)

    how much can you customise how your map looks like? (in an easy way)
    If people see things on the map that they like, they might look atit more often

    Well I mean, an option to easily customize your map (like colors, symbols and so on) would be really nice.

    I would be really curious to see these stats. Definitely a good idea to add this metric to any stat system we build in the future.
