Random Weapon Assignment
« on: June 22, 2006, 08:34:09 pm »
Hi all!

This could be an intertising additive!

Players would spawn with a random primary weapon, but could choose their seconary.

This would enforce the usage of a particular gun to be shared.

it would also assist people to change their ways from 1-shot-kill weapons, and encourage the usage of the chosen secondary weapon.

Would be dead easy to implement so this may be talk that can be put into action.

Thoughts on this little idea? ::

A lot of your suggestions are based on what all the other games are doing. Not one for thinking out of the box are you?

This idea on the other hand has potential.

i like the idea, its kinda like something off of starcraft called Race Wars...you choose random races, and same races team up..anyhow...i like this idea, it would be a fun gametype
Your acting like your having a duel and your opponent gets a pistol and you get a spork.
Isn't that pretty much what it is? I dunno wtf a spork is, I suppose it's way weaker than the pistol since you compared that to this.

how about a random weapon /combonation/? you don't even choose secondary... tho i suppose that's not too original either.

It's also already available in Soldat, too. I've played on servers where you start off with a secondary and unlock a primary via killing the enemy. If you die, you stand a chance to lose an unlocked primary. This is my favorite Soldat setup, though it is horrible once one team gains a primary weapon advantage over the other and keep nade spawning so that the team never has a chance for a primary weapon.

I don't at all like the idea of this as a server option, but a local random select would be great.

Domino, you speak of Advance Mode.

Uh, no it doesn't. In Advance Mode, you earn a number of random weapons depending on how well you score, and you still choose among them.

I tried to suggest this before also, but it didnt made it through (i wonder why) but my varriant of it had so even the secondary would be randomly selected.  :P

Nevertheless i like the idea... ;D
