Air Lord, Engineering Corps
Just had a quick idea and wanted to do an interest check!
Anyone think an 'addon' style arena would work for PVP?
In that all players start with one given ship design (a 150$ airship that's exactly the same as everybody elses) and every round the price limit increases by about 40% and players get to modify their ships while trying to keep the same general design as the last one.
So it would play out as your normal arena 1v1 with 10 people with a 40% $ cap increase every time and between each round people that have lost get eliminated and winners modify the ships with the new upper price.
With this theme the rounds would go like this:
8 players total
4 players left
2 players left
I think this is a good idea because its like a normal arena but you need do be good at design because your ship wont last in the next round so you have to keep evolving your design and trying to anticipate your competitors moves based on their last ship design because it will be generally the same type of ship!
The starting 150$ may be changed, same with the % bonus each round too, just depends on the game/number of players i guess!
I like the idea of alternating between design and combat. It's kind of like some M:tG formats where you have to deck-build on the fly.
Glad you like it!
