Title: Handicaps
Post by: Moo on June 26, 2012, 02:34:37 pm
There is generally a big difference in terms of chance of winning between "old" and "new" players. To try to mitigate that I often give myself handicaps to try to even things out a little, but it would be nice if the game could enforce them itself. It could also make games between more equally-matched players more interesting, by choosing different settings for each player/team, or just make things more difficult by choosing the same settings for all players.

Some ideas:

That's just a few. I'm sure others could come up with more. Ideally there'd be another window reachable from the quest settings screen, with maybe a grid of checkboxes with the options down the left and player names across the top...

I quite like this actually.

Some more suggestions:

I think too hard the following handicaps:
4.Slowed movement
12.Map only shows current and adjacent rooms
13.Map only shows current room

First because it gives too much advantage (I think), the second and third because some players (including me  :D) will be very difficult to navigate the terrain.
Instead, I suggest following options:
1) Reduced the damage of weapons
2) The slow strokes of weapons
3) The slow speed when carrying a weapon (except the sword)
4) The delay before the revival
