[Suggestion] Purchases [closed]

Post by admin » Wed Oct 14, 2009 12:48 pm

I suggest the following: Gladiators cannot BUY anything until they level up.

Reason: This is not for Logic's sake - it's not really logical. But rather, this is for simplicity's sake: It is much simpler to re-validate characters as they level up (i.e. once per level), then it would be each time they buy anything new between fights... This will become a larger issue as the number of Gladiators increases.

There is another reasons this would be good (in my opinion)
If I have the "Evil Knight (level 2)" Gladiator on my HD, I don't need to go see if there is any update to that level 2 Gladiator..!!

I see two problems with this:

1- You have to buy all your potions/spell components/expendables in one go at the time of levelling. It might not be such a problem but I'd hate to miss a key ingredient down the line because I had 50 gold missing 4 fights ago.

2- It doesn't keep track of said expendables. The gladiator will need to be updated when he uses his potion of Bull's strenght anyways. Or are you suggesting he has the potion for the entire level.

One way to go around the problem is to increase the price of these expendable items by 4 and tell them they've got it for the whole level.

You know, I was going along with this. But after giving it thought,this does not feel right. In fact, it actually doesn't make sense that a gladiator, after winning a match would not be able to improve his/her weapons, armor, etc. With this in mind, I'm reversing my decision on this. A Gladiator will receive his/her gold at the time of win/loss and be able to make purchases accordingly.

My reason: I fought a match and found that a weapon or tactic didn't work as I thought. Having won, or even lost, I'd be inclined to spend coin on something to help my odds in the next match.

Has this been decided as I do not want to accept another challenge if I am allowed to spend a little money to improve my odds?
