An idea for Hard Mode
« on: April 24, 2017, 04:08:56 PM »
Ok, Hard Mode:

Give users a chance when they are rolling a character (or maybe only on wipe day), to roll it in Hard Mode.
  • all exotic races are available from the begining
  • characters need 50% of the experience to level
  • rank accrues at twice the normal rate
  • rank effects cost 50% their normal cost

...but

  • there's a flag showing you're playing in hard mode visible to all other players
  • your character can only die once, and that death is permanent.  No re-spawn.
  • all gear on your character when you die instantly decays
  • dead characters that are members of clans can never be removed, the clan must continue to pay for that seat used by the dead character

thoughts?

Sounds great! Just take out the 'but' part, and instead of calling characters hardcore call them normal! And increase rank max to 100!

lol, sounds great until you try it, and someone gets a pk bot squad and erases all of your hard earned work just because he can.... and is currently upset at the immortal staff, life, or his gf for whatever reason, or just simply bored enough to pk you for shits and giggles.

Gramm - that's the point.

You'd have a more seductive character to play, but you'd also be walking around with a huge target on your back. 

Maybe you could get the same effect with an opt_target flag...
