    Remove the scoreboard! I really want the community to experience the game without relying heavily on it.

    This is not a troll thread just a genuine attempt to show it's not the main thing they should be concentrating on.

    While an interesting social experiment, I fear you'd get far more backlash from the community than positive encouragement.

    Alternatively, you could play with a group of people that don't focus on scoreboard chasing. Find a good league or group of friends that don't focus on the numbers, but rather improving as a player in general.

    While not the only component, having the scorecard for a DPS lets you know how you're stacking up to the other DPS. What, exactly, would a DPS do to improve? If they're with the same group of people and it gets done, but they're being a carry, how would they even know they NEED to improve?

    scoreboard is the reason many cant do the hard stuff. and nothing is that hard in this game. top DPS at any cost!!!!!

    Even if the scoreboard was removed, people will still find ways to one-up each other.

    i dont understand the purpose of scoreboard to begin with... it's not like you rewarded base on your score..

    To measure how well you perform in content.. was that not obvious?

    Scoreboard that shows only your own damage output. It could be as in parser. Dmg/second and total damage plus crit percent.
    Perfect solution. No more competition for being top dps, but those who care even little bit. Could be better dpses with this info.

    But the scoreboard does NOT do that.

    It only gives the amount of damage you did.

    Unless damage is all you care about.... which sadly is a BIG issue in DCUO.....
    it does not tell if you
    raised fallen teammates...
    rolled out of a pool of lava so that the Healer would not have to overheal to keep you alive...
    completed any of the objectives...
    managed your power well
    etc....

    Too many people do not know how to read and interpret the scoreboard.
    Too many people read only the numbers.... and don't understand the context.

    Vets don't need the scoreboard to know who performed well in a mission or not. ;)

    I agree that it should at least show how many revives people do but my point still stands that it lets you measure how well you perform in content, if you have no scoreboard then you dont know how well you are doing in comparison to others and sure some people take this too far to the point of trash talking people cause of their damage out but thats not the majority. i mainly dps but i wouldnt just talk trash to someone because i outdps them

    Id love for there to be a revive feature because id be top revives in most instances im in :D

    I like that idea social experiment :) - I understand the need for the scoreboard but there are a plethora of MMOs that don't have one minus the mod additions. You judge your damage on the boss health decline and teamwork of course.

    I think without the scoreboard the community would be less confrontational.

    Lol!
    Funny, how you say it does not matter or affect you but then you insist on removing it.
    Just try and restrain yourself and stop looking at it if it bothers you that much.

    Eso has no scorecard and it takes the 'stress' out of running the content and makes it fun. Just win and get out. No drama, just play.

    Because i'm experienced enough to know how scoreboards affect games either way doesn't matter to me since i play support roles. I'm thinking of the bigger picture and a healthy community that new players can step into.

    2 ways to do that:

    1 - if you beat it
    2 - if you cant beat it

    Pro-Scoreboard like competition & want to be the "best"

    Anti-Scoreboard just want to get through things without drama as smooth as possible

    Most fall somewhere in between
