Zero's Weekend

Postby bionic_radical » Sat Aug 20, 2011 12:05 am

I know some alt modes are hard to come by, and resets aren't as readily available for those modes, but for anyone with core modes:

What if everyone had a weekend melee of level zeros? Each battle would be a maxed out battle, and the veterans would be on par with newbs. CR chamber would cost nothing and the bot vs con tally bar would be more balanced.

Anyone else think this sounds like fun?

Fighting at level zero? Fun?

Whatever drugs you're on you need to start sharing.

Plus you didn't factor in what happens when people reset. Not only do they lose their armour and alt modes, the level limiter will kick in and they won't get to level zero anyway.

We can. But it seems a lot of work to fight at level 0!

What Burn is trying to say is that it's impossible for most people to level back down to L0 as the xp caps prevent it.

The old SPL tournament idea worked when the game was new but now we has legitimate level 9s it's impossible to run and busting people back to L0 would lose people xp that they would gain if they didn't join.

Not that the idea is completely without merit, keep the ideas coming, just ignore the grumpy Aussie pissing on all the bonfires he can find... It's the reason why he's on the staff ;)

Some where north of 650k, which is already kinda ridiculous. Judging by the high scores page.

the limiters dont kick in unless you reset.

as long as you stay level 0 you can have any xp, but if you reset and have over 650k it forces you to level1

Late to the party again N_V ... we already knew this years ago, and we explained it in the thread. Time you got your head out of the pizza oven! Image

P.S. Go and bake me a pie Sustain.
