Duel arena

Discussion in 'Factions - Survival' started by Snap, Aug 6, 2014.

?

Should a fair skill based fight arena be added to factions, to make friendly fighting simpler?

  1. Yes, it will be simpler, and easier than meeting up or being tricked/scammed/lured

  2. No, you aren't there to make friends and fight with them, you're there to wreck them unfairly

  3. No, it would take too much time up for such an unnecessary addition to the game

    Factions is all about fighting. Afterall, it's a pvp gamemode, and with the absence of kitpvp now, a lot of players are moving to assassins and factions. However, whenever i ask someone to fight me, they either break the rules of what i wanted to be a friendly wager, or get their clan to wreck me before i know what the hell just happened...
    Here is the holy suggestion:
    Make a fight arena, in which whilst in the area, you can type /challenge {Player} friendly/stake.
    Then, the player will be informed of this, and can type /challenge accept.
    Then, both players are teleported inside a reasonably small arena, where they are able only to attack eachother. If anyone has played runescape or oblivion, or even skyrim, you will know what i mean by this... A lot of my suggestions have been ripped from runescape lately =/

    Friendly:
    Description: A friendly fight, in which items will be returned to the player upon death.
    Gamemode 1:
    Rule 1: NO consumables (this includes all potions, food and splash potions)
    Rule 2: NO enchanting items (This includes swords, armour and golden apples)
    Gamemode 2:
    No rules. You can use any items, be it a bow, sword, enchanted armour and god apples, etc.

    Wager:
    Description: A battle in which all items are lost to the winner.
    Gamemode 1:
    Rule 1: NO consumables (This includes all potions, food and splash potions)
    Rule 2: NO enchanting items (This includes swords, armour and golden apples)
    Gamemode 2: No rules. You can use any items, be it a bow, sword, enchanted armour and god apples, etc.
    Would this be too complicated, or would it work?
    Also, would it be used? I very much like fighting players, and sometimes even my friends, but most of the time, i get teamed or tricked into tping inside a lava pit, or on the edge of a cliff... -.-
    I am aware that factions is basically about betraying and raiding, but it's still a pvp game, and i like fighting other players fairly, rather than murdering them, unprepared and not expecting me.

    i think no consumables and no enchanted items would be boring and pretty much weird, it makes the fight too short and less strategic, scince you have to focus on staying alive, also i think on either one you should loose your stuff, because you are taking a risk of battling in the arena, so if you loose you lose your stuff, also the players reward for killing you is taking your stuff. Finally, i think enchanted items must be allowed, its factions, you wont expect anyone to have no enchanted gear.

    There will be two options, one for OP items, and one for less powerful items, just so the noobs can get a chance to battle too.

    In my opinion i think its a good idea to have a pvp arena where you don't lose your stuff and there is no consumables because you can fight your friend and test how strong you are without using any consumables.
    Or you can challenge your friend in the "unfriendly" xD pvp arena and test how strong you are with your consumables and have your friend give your stuff back.

    But actually i think its better to have the friendly pvp arena allow enchanted items because imagine you were someone who did not know that you cant have enchanted items in friendly pvp and he was taking 6 days to enchant all his diamond armor for a test in the friendly pvp arena and when he challenges someone he notices all his stuff isn't enchanted and gets really mad. :p

    I love raiding and attacking, it's just that i would prefer to fight players fairly rather than just murdering them from behind.

    I think you have misunderstood. There are two rulesets for both, friendly and wager mode; gamemode 1 will restrict equipment, whereas gamemode 2 will not. Both gamemodes can be played in either friendly or wager matches, so you can use what you like in friendly matches too, be that if you wish to test out good gear on a friend.

    No, you can use any armour that isn't enchanted.
