Hello, Leaguers, World Members, and Dominic Associates:
Allow me to propose this weapon limit for all other game rooms: Custom limit.
Custom limit is an upgraded version of S4 League's current create-a-room settings & GUI, allowing customizable weapon permissions similar to that of selecting the defaults: unlimited, swords-only(SO), guns-only, Arcade-only, or Chaser-only. The display can be a list of checkboxes that room masters can modify, while all others can observe. The check list will span all the weapons, guns, snipers, bombs, drones, swords both sharp and blunt, and their Mark 2 variants. The same idea can span across the skills as well, giving players the ability to isolate the match's, allowed, weapon loadouts more effectively.
For example, what if melee users wanted to use one, some, or all of the unlimited/guns skills in SO? Now, they can do that. What if they wanted to use healing or explosive weapons in said SO match? Now, they can do that. What if the players wanted to deny the use sniper rifles? Now, they can do that. What if the developers wanted to implement this under the mask of a new post-Glitch season, called Framework? Now, they can (with all intents and purposes) do that.
This same implementation can make it easier to detect cheaters who want to use specific weapons that are currently denied by these new permissions. The Custom limit is great; In fact, the other game modes (unlimited, guns, swords) can be implemented on top of this idea by use of their own checkboxes when selecting the room's properties. The GUI can be a second tab above the window, and the design can be scaled from a 2xN list in 800x600 aspect ratio to a KxN list (K and N are positive integers of 2 or greater).
Custom Limit Mk. 2
Customizable matches and weapon limits
Grants access to more unique gameplay experiences that aren't hampered by risks of 'Rule Breakers'
Takes time to implement, debug, and compile for an older game that doesn't have a proper sub-folder file system for most of the data.
Can be 'abused' by players, in which case behooves other players to uphold the option of not playing in said room with 'abused' rules.
Do you eSpers, Game Masters, Developers, Leaguers think that this implementation is doable and beneficial to the core of Netsphere? Do you think that some things require a change? What other mechanics do you think require modification? Let us know in the comments below.
