Frosty the Suicidal Snowman
« on: May 24, 2010, 09:26:30 am »
Frosty the Suicidal Snowman is farming HLStats points and RTD credits. It explains how he has 49,002 HLStats points but less than 5,000 kills.

Proof:

May 24 from 3:42 a.m. to 3:57 a.m.
Link: Here
He jarateed Back-alley brain medicine about 150 times as they had some sort of perverse pee party.

May 24 from 2:40 a.m. to 2:42 a.m.
Link: Here
He jarateed another 100 times or so.

Permanent image:
Here is just a small sample, just in case his recent history gets overwritten.

Confession:
May 24, 3:38 a.m.
Link: Here

The event history only goes back 10 pages, so it's likely he's been doing this for a while.

Looking at his 2.01 kpd it's clear he's a good player, but this kind of behavior is unfair to the rest of us who amass credits and HLStats points in the actual game.

HLStats isn't a huge thing, but you get credits when you get HLStats points, right? If so, this needs to stop.

You don't earn credits with hlstats, to my knowledge. You get hlstats points for jarate-ing people? How many?

I'm going to let fox handle this, since I'm not exactly sure what punishment there should be...

I think it is 1 point for normal jarate, but in nightmare mode, I'm not sure.

It's 1 HLStats point per jarate regardless of nightmare status. And I thought you got credits for every X number of in-game points...

Anyway, this type of farming typically happens when the server is nearly empty. You can earn HLStats points and credits if there are just three people in the server. Dice only appear when there are 6 people in the server. Perhaps all points/credits/dice should be deactivated until six people are present.

Yeah, what happened to "I'll make sure it won't happen again"?

More fun Frosty facts (alliteration!):

He has 49,000 points in 62.5 hours.
That's the lowest time played by anyone in the Top 30.

He joined the server May 6 and has played all but one day since.
With 49,000 points over 18 sessions, that's 2,722.22 points per session. (Including the 1,000 points he got when joining) Wow.
Frosty has scored over 2,000 HLStats points 10 times in 18 sessions.
Oreoz has scored over 2,000 HLStats points 13 times in 157 sessions.

At that rate, Frosty should surpass everyone but oreoz and Generic by June 3. He'll be the server's HLStats points leader by the end of June.

I'm not insinuating anything. Just saying the server apparently has a new "best player." Sorry, oreoz...

climbing gets slower because as you climb, you get less people who give you a lot of points per kill and eventually plateau(i think a logarithmic graph is suitable). Prob around the 80k mark.

i climbed pretty fast when zalph was still second, but then nightmare came out and everyone became professional nightmare mode spys/medics


edit: oh, he is a professional nightmare mode spy. basically he's awful.

Sure hope you're not implying that I'm a bad Spy, Oreoz.

As tehoreoz has mentioned, he plays spy and nightmare mode.  So instant kills with no real disadvantage while using dead ringer.  Essentially no change in play style but twice the points.

Actually, nightmare mode medic is a terrible idea. You don't get more points for kill assists do ya? And you die better.

Yes you do, you get 10 for each assist.
Medic and DR Spy are actually the best idea for nightmare mode. Both are amazingly easy to go positive in points.
Edit: Engie isn't too bad either, but your sentry does SHIT for damage. D;

Hmm. In that case I might try it. Has it changed from months ago? I seemed to remember that back in the day when I was trying to improve my rank I decided that nightmare medic was not worth it.

Apparently you both haven't played any time with me.

I removed Nightmare when Fox added the nerf of weapon damage.
My Revolver > that.
