Web Games New game balance idea stuck in my craw

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

This idea is not part of the current gameplay rebalance, but I think might have some merit as a possible ‘nother round of positive changes.

Y’know how you feel really good when you see someone with practically nothing defeat someone way more powerful than him? (Like when an orphan pauper takes out the evil king?)

And then there’s that feeling of “Oh, give me a ****ing break” when someone way outclbumes someone else and then beats the **** out of them? (Like the New York Yankees beating a Little League Team full of 5-year olds?)

What if the forums worked the same way? So if you took on Cosplay Central with no .moars equipped, and only equipment from Ep1, you’d get bonus cred/fans? And if you took on Denture Chat with a Master Ball and Pink Floyd equipped you’d lose cred/fans?

Might make for some more interesting builds, and make mid-range .moar files and other equipment worth buying.

There. It’s out of my craw now. Go nuts dissecting why this would be a bad idea.

Actually it might balance lemon scoops for newbies vs. maxed-out players a little.

I don’t really like that idea. It’s a good incentive for everyone to be a Re-Re, and would just inconvenience people trying to pwn lower level forums for Lemon Scoops or to complete a streak.

That said, I like the idea of difficulty bonuses.

High level players with no equipment still aren’t going to find Denture Chat any kind of a challenge, punishing them for pwning it seems unfair.

Maybe give a bonus for doing things with less equipment or at lower levels, but having a penalty for doing something below your level doesn’t seem right when that’s necessary for long streaks.

Interesting idea, but changing the equipment while (solo-)raiding would take too much time. We would need savable builds then.

Hmm, making people have more of a choice between types of scoops.

I like the spirit of the idea, but I think it needs some work.

In a similar vein, what about streak bonuses (antifreeze? fans impressed at your devil-may-care attitude?) for doing forums in a row without getting your stats restored between visits? The HP/MP consumables might be useful for something if you had to do a decent number of forums for good bonuses.

That’s more like what I was thinking of. Great idea!

I happen to really like the idea of not being able to refresh yourself in between forum visits.

It would provide a lot more necessity for consumables, but I’d like to see how the Gameplay Tuneup helps this firstly.
