I do not like this new scoring system at all. I feel if you're lower level or def player you better hope you get a decent amount of points out of the gate before you die and don't bother with the revive b/c every time you use it you just die again you lose more and more b/c you wind up being a chew toy for those that have already saved you. I started out with decent points not great, but decent now I'm at 1/4 points of my original start. I no longer see the point of the def stance. I specifically tried to build my character for the def time knowing that it could carry me a bit. Major joke now. The xp is the only thing worth it and even with that you're limited unless you want to open your wallet / purse and spend for refills. I don't know why you'd want to spend for refills any longer. It's ridiculous. We have nothing to aim for when it comes to points other than just try to get as many as possible, but even in fw/gw we can click the leader board and see what we need to be shooting for. I feel very sorry for those that never completed the placement achievements b/c seriously a new players has no shot at placing in the top 5% anymore. The changes prior to the scoring system were different but tolerable, but this is just plain silly. Hope others are having a better experience than I am b/c for me the fun is gone from BA. Sadly disappointed.
