"Double perma" mode
« on: October 03, 2014, 07:22:30 pm »
Hi folks
Recently I've been thinking that the clashes between the ships can many times be very short; when facing a good and well-performed combo one ship can kill another within <30 seconds. I thought that we could create a game mode that doubles the permahull so every clash would take longer time and therefore could be more tactical. Nothing changes - just permahull x2.
What do you think?

I think we should see what matchmaking will do for "stomping" and revisit this after, if needed.

We actually ran almost this exact test with triple health. It was interesting. There was a definite issue of feedback making it difficult to tell if ships were weakened. Also it gave a disproportionate advantage to weaker ships. I would be interested to see a flat bonus to everything.
