On all servers I've seen, Opposite has always had higher score than Order, a lot higher..
It doesn't matter if opposite represent the Entente or Central Powers, they always have a higher score..

It's something related to mission objectives that gives more points to Opposite, and when there's a draw the opposite wins, so it's actually not a draw but you understand..

YEah, its because usually the opposite guys are defending and the order guys have to kill all the other guys. It seems if any opposite guys manage to make it back alive the order guys lose.

They really need to change all that into Central Powers and Triple Entente.

Would be cool if we could have a section of the leaderboard dedicated to the War itself, to show who's winning.

Yeah, but for the leaderboards we have all the stats, it's just a matter of adding the stats for the entente planes, and central power planes and make it into a percentage.

For the campaign it needs to be historically accurate, the leaderboard is more metagame.

It seems when all players finish the mission manually the victory is awarded to Opposite. This happens alot. There is no neutral situation where no side achieves victory. Neoqb stated awhile back that there were specific reasons to do with mission development that required the sides to be termed Order and Opposite, I can't remember what they were but they surely should take into consideration that 99% of players consider it intuitive to have one side the entende and the other the central powers.

The Order usually has a lower score because they have mission objectives to deal with, while the Opposite only has to disrupt them from completing the objectives to get credit for winning the mission.

The order just has more to do. They have to fend off enemy planes and complete an objective (bombing, shooting down bombers, ect.). I've also noticed that there are many players that don't go for the objective and just go straight to dogfighting, and even when the team does, there are some objectives aren't coded properly, so even if you complete them, the Opposite still wins.

Even if we do change the teams to Central and Entente, the Entente will be at a disadvantage (score wise) until the Germans get bombers. That's for the simple fact that you can give a wider variety of objectives to the Entente (bombing missions and fighter missions).

I don't think one side has a wild advantage over the other. It's just how the missions are designed. It should right itself over time. I wouldn't get too wrapped up in scores until then.

Do the points even matter?

At the risk of sounding like an ass. What the hell does the leaderboard points prove other then you play more. Do you get some sort of prize? MAybe an intense swelling of the epeen or that halo nerve get scratched a little.

Well, since we have a leaderboard, you'd like it to be accurate right?
How much leaderboards actually matter is not related to this discussion.

And also it would be cool to see the correct points for each team on the stats when joining a server, instead of the way it is now.
