There are several reasons here to remove a score board. Score Boards do not really do anything for teamwork because for some people, they like to see their name up at the top. Similarly, some people don't like to see their name down the bottom. More importantly, the scoreboard does nothing to reflect the input of the player. A player can get no points what-so-ever but still was an integral part of the team (say a scout who was just calling out contacts for the team). It can also be used to check that the AI you just shot (or player in tvt?) is actually dead and not lying behind cover. Lastly, since I doubt there's anyone here that has screenshots of every scoreboard they have played plastered all over their wall to host parties over ("Yes I got 236 kills in this one game! More wine..."), why should we want them. We aren't a point scoring community here and people can always scratch tally marks into their monitor if they wish ;)
What does everyone else think?
