old 15 award
« on: December 30, 2015, 06:51:53 pm »
So I discussed with muse before that there needs to be an award for achieving old lvl 15.

And not some terrible title (seriously the dude who came up with some of these is is eh...)

Anyway I say the ability to name AI that will consistently spawn with that name. Numbers and other non-alphabetical characters allowed seeing as its an AI and not a player. Plus seeing as its your own personal AI it doesn't have to be unique and other people can use the given name (hence no conflicts with winner of tourneys getting to name a "wild" AI). Infinite renames or 1 rename after the first to create that nuzlocke effect.

Only thing would be the ability to still censor the usual bad words and it should be fun, yet harmless.

Or better yet. Call back to the old days when AIs looked like players and you get a human looking AI  which you can dress as you see fit.

In the pre-matchmaking system level 15 was the max and levels were based on achievements not xp. By simply playing the game the highest level you could attain was 13. The only possible way to get to 15 was grinding achievements.

This game doesn't really need more vet vs casual circlejerking

Why does there need to be an award for achieving level 15? Personally I'd feel a bit cheated because the only way to get to the higher levels was obsessively grinding achievements. I had 2000+ matches over many lvl 15s and my max level was 12. When MM kicked everyone's level up it was satisfying to see all the lvl 15 players that weren't 45. Levels don't matter and why does there needs to be an award for excessive grinding.

I'd be in favor of booting up the xp requirements for the top levels. With 45 being 3,000,000. That'll give you something to do Max.

If there was a meaningful reward for getting level 15 I might actually want to play gunner/pilot but since there isn't .. There is little reason to play them (for me at lest since I don't really like either).

They could even have a toggle where you can chose to display your class level or your achievement level.. Achievement levels could have a *  or some minor icon by them to differentiate the two..

I don't know if custom AI is the right reward though... Maybe some special cosmetics like tool skins and special death animations could be unlocked (If those will ever be a thing).. Something more class specific..

Wow, an award for cheesing flayed hills.  No thanks.

I have about a million and a half (literally, not hyperbole) spare XP as a level 45 gunner, and still wouldn't have been level 15 in the old system because of achievements that are impossible to get through normal gameplay.  I don't see a reason to reward that kind of behavior AFTER that system was already REMOVED because it was BAD.

Also, THIS.
