View Full Version : remove power levels

Jan 14th, 2002, 09:16 PM
Some ppl dis agree with me on this but the problem with the power level thing is that when there is a server that has been up running for, x amount of hours, when a person joins, It would be like boom, he's gone. Also if someone gets 36 kills, and soneone else only gets 8 kills, it will be obvious who will win. (true story fo r me :) ) Also all it will do is just make the explosions bigger in the game for ppl just connected to the server.

um...no, we won't :)

Wow, a lot of people might get P.O.ed at this idea! Here's a few ways we could deal with it for people who don't like PL

-An option button for server creation that fixes PL at the defaults per character, or gives out certain bonuses (I'm not sure if they'd be x PL or %s) per unit of time
-Change maps frequently, that way it's hard to get an overwhelming PL
-when new people come in, everyone changes classes or hits retry to bring themselves to "square one" > maybe a reset PL console option would be nice
-join a server with frequent crashes, so it's hard for anyone to stay on long enough to amass a high PL :rolleyes:

That is the most braindead thing I have heard in a while.... :p

If you're skilled at all you can overcome a person who has a higer PL.

Maybe he meant some games of ESF he's playing, cuz it's impossible with the PL difference? (Not sure).

Well, the easiest solution is to have servers with frequent map changes, so PL does reward better players, but it can't get overwhelming.
