RIGHT NOW, you get money per damage, NOT per kill. So that much we have already ^^.

Lily-Livered River Pirate said:Anyone can by surviving one round. Buy padded (or equivalent), first tier shield and an axe. Survive. Trade padded for mail. "Oh, but in that case you're using an axe! Axes are worse!" you've survived, surely there was loot to be found.
Now Hengwulf I fail to see your point - do you believe it's in anyone's interest to go through eight or nine rounds of rape, each one seeing the foe increasingly armed and armoured? If we've reached 5 - 0, wouldn't you say theres a FAIR CHANCE that teams are UNEVEN and that at this point it's probably best to MOVE ON?
Hengwulf said:Some thoughts:
the Goidil look great with their new shields, they make them less Celtic and more Norse. I think they should get some more complex starter clothes though. The "dresses" they get now are to plain and simple and they are all the same except for colour. Looking at Vikingr, Rus etc. They get much fancier cloths. Goidil Ceiternachs look like the poorest of peasants right now.
Also the Goidil lack any kind of hat. I don't now any type but maybe some plaid or coif. I think Brytenwalda had some nice examples of cloth headgear that would drape over ones shoulders or back.
The Vikingr could use some attention. I think that right now they are the least unique faction. I would like to see some more Viking shield designs (we had a thread about it somewhere). I would also like to see a visored helmet. As of now we have only 1 and it costs a wopping 830! Maybe it should be in the 300ish zone, that way not everyone would choose the more expensive visored helmet but it is still accessable. And pleaso make them with some kind of neckguard, without it most helmets look silly on your head.
The Bersekr stays a point of interest. I feel a berserker class isn't that strange, but I don't like the rage ability. I would rather see the class be influenced by items like the other factions. How to do this I still haven't figured out.
The Rus could get some nice axes.
Lily-Livered River Pirate said:So, what do you have against first to five if most rounds - in your experience - end at five anyway? All this system does is ensure that if one team is vastly superior the game end faster than it otherwise would. Would you care to tell me what fault you find with this?

When an entire team is clad in mail theres often no point anymore and this is a situation that should NEVER occur.
Speaking of which, who among you running the server is opposed to FenrirSkogr's first to 4 or 5 system? Do you really believe anyone is interested in going through a 20 minute long 8 - 0 rape? First to 5 ensures the game is fast when unbalanced (not fun) and longer when balanced (fun). Who disagrees?
