During my stint in the Beta I had just gotten done with a long binge of PvP matches and was moving to close out the game and shut down my XB1 when I noticed that I had a message. Odd, no one ever messages me. So I popped it open and it said “didnt mean to steal that last kill, gg though”. Had the sender stolen one of my kills in ‘Meltdown’? I honestly didn’t remember or really cared, so I messaged back a quick “alls good :)” and left it at that.
When it comes to PvP or matches where a team is fighting a sole objective does it really matter who kills who as long as victory is achieved. If it was a game mode like “First to 50 Kills” or 'Kill Confirmed" I could understand a stigma to those who snipe or ‘steal’ a kill. I’m of the belief that ‘stealing’ a kill doesn’t really matter, as long as the objective is pushed and we are all striving to win proactively, but I’m more of a recreational and casual gamer and have not spent too much time in a competitive FPS environment.
What are your thoughts when someone snags a kill from you? Are you angered or do you not really care? And why?
(Edit: related question, when it comes to ‘Kill Stack’ abilities/skills/gear this also pertains to minion deaths as well?)
