[SUGGESTION] More Shooting, Less Hoarding

#1
When a player is skilled enough, any advantage can be a potentially crippling one. So it doesn't really matter how much of a material advantage the other player has, he's still going to get his ass handed to him on a platter.

So why bother placing so much importance on material? Just give the players a few weapons and armor fresh out of spawn so they can at least look at those pretty particle effects instead of staring at the shotgun model for half the round. They might have some fun blowing stuff up and stick around for a while too.

Well you can all ways try clan arena.
You spawn with all the usable weapons, 200 health and armour. Fun!

Reploid, isn't that exactly what Overkill is about? Wink
There's a reason why we have both Overkill and "vanilla" Xonotic. I like Overkill for exactly the things you mentioned, but vanilla is much fun too once you're into it. I guess Overkill is easier to handle for beginners though, which explains why the server is one of the most popular.

And yeah, clan arena is a bit like what you suggest, in vanilla Xonotic. Stick around in #xonotic.pickup @ Quakenet if you're interested in some pickup games - CA (clan arena) is one of the popular gametypes there Smile

Overkill server is the most popular, becouse it is popular, and has people on it. Anyway, thats why I join it.
