Eliminate - Earning Credits

Let me start off by saying, yes this is another eliminate thread. I was not able to find this information anywhere else.

Does anyone know exactly how many credits are earned in energized matches. I have heard of several ways in which credits are earned:

1. Killing people
2. Picking up the credits they drop after they die
3. Taunting the dead bodies
4. Getting first place in a match?

I think these are the only ways to get credits (I am not sure if the last one is true). But I have not seen anyone clearly and definitively define how many credits you get for each of the above items. For the life of me, I can not figure it out.

If you KNOW the answer, please respond to the post.

well confirmed ways to credits are:

Taunt (shake your device and you get 3 or 5 credits per taunt) as much as you can.

Pick up those green credits. (1 green credit = 1 credit)

I don't know about killing people or coming in first place. I've gotten 100+ credits just taunting a lot in games. It's really effective.

Are you sure each taunt gives you 3-5 credits? That seems like an awful lot. I have heard others say that each taunt gives you 1 additional credit.

It's one for each. You get a bonus at the end of the round depending on the amount of kills you get. Or something like that.

Someone with energy should play a couple of rounds documenting all of their kills, taunts, and credit pickups to try and figure out exactly how many credits you get for each.

It seems like knowing exactly how many you get for each would be very helpful for strategic purposes.

Just an idea.

another thing about taunts. the vaporizer and rocket launcher dont leave a body behind when you use them to kill someone. so in the long run, the vape and rl will get you less credits as you wont get as much taunting in

True, but neither will sniper kills, as you are unlikely to ever pick up the credits and you won't be taunting any dead bodies, if you take someone out from a distance.

I guess that favors close combat.

Why don't you do it

I can't get more than 81 credits in a match. Taunting is also quite hard because the maps are small and there is always someone trying to kill you.

I average about 60 credits a match though, even if I don't win which is quite good.

That's something that needs to be fixed, the Sniper has -DEF, making it worse for close combat (it also lacks the +SPD that balances the Infiltrator), so the Sniper is useless for now until something is changed.

I recently downloaded the media player and I absolutely love it. However, I was wondering if it's possible to eliminate the controls and just have the screen displayed.

"andersen" replied to my post and advised me to set the same "height" and "display height" to make the controls go away; however, the controls just moved up and are now overlapping the movie. Where did I go wrong?

Thanks for any pointers!
Unless I'm seriously missing something, this should not be posted here.
