Heroic points and IP
 
Will the IP earned in a match be partially based off of heroic points or do they serve some other purpose we don't know about?

Heroic points are just another Epeen. It's a way to say, "Hey, look, I'm awesome.", or "Hey, you sucked." Same as K/D/A in the regular games. The idea is that you can do really handy things in this game that don't include getting kills, that in fact may include getting really dead. They don't want the score card at the end of the game to scare people away from holding off three opponents on their own, even though they know they're gonna die. Why? Because even if you just delay them, that was really handy, and respawn times are low.

actually, there's an award for that called "martyr" (I think) that's worth +40 points....
at least I think that's what martyr does.
