    Ballista Point Calculation

    I have always wondered how those things are calculated... so far I can imagine:

    Plus Points:
    - Kill someone else
    - Cure bomb Party members
    - Score Petras
    - Enfeebling someone
    - Doing damage

    Minus Points:
    - You die
    - You use petraeater to destroy your petras

    Maybe you also get some sort of Bonus for:
    - Not die at all
    - Score highest

    Whem I have some good RDM with me and I curebomb my Team I always seem to score ridiciously high.

    - You use petraeater to destroy your petras (not sure)

    Maybe you also get some sort of Bonus for:
    - Not die at all (no)
    - Score highest (definately)

    I know not dying doesn't mean much. In uncapped Jugner earlier I didn't die at all, had 34 petra scores (250ish to 238ish final score, 44 leader) and had not died. Killed some people, though did a lot less meleeing than normal. But with that many scores (well over 10% of my team scores) I only got 144 points. I did a lot of bolt-using, though.

    From what a friend told me, there is a ratio between damage done and damage taken that determines your points bonus. I'd assume healing is within that ratio, somewhat like Enmity is?

    Anything and everything you do in ballista that benefits your team will earn you points. Cures, scoring petra, enfeebling, Mana potions, damaging/killing opponents, etc. And of course being top scorer earns you bonus points as well.

    Your team winning will give you a small bonus I've figured to be around 20 points.
