A reason why tickets or objective based games are superior to simple deathmatches in space.

The thing is in that system there is then no 'grief' in the cloaking. If the rewards scale with time. Too much differentiation between winning makes the environment less casual friendly and less friendly to those who aren't pointed up and trained in pvp.

30 badges versus 18

Currently if you do win and do it quick you DO get better awards and progress faster. However if you can fail spectacularly at machine gun rates you progress fast as well but if you are stuck in good or stalled fights you are at a standstill. Time limits on some matches may be another useful tool.

And yes end of match incentivised MVP awards is another way to encourage participation.
