Replace Extended with a delayed version of the normal antag pool

Instead of having no starting antags and only having mid round antags, start the game with no starting antags and then after 15-45 minutes give antag objectives from the normal starting pool of antags.

This way the rounds will be a bit longer without making them completely uninteresting.

It's so boring that everyone is shocked and surprised every time end screen comes up revealing the game mode.

That's usually because of the people breaking the rules after an hour because they can't handle doing something productive with their shift

case and point my last real extended round had me as HoS dealing with Dante Smith repeatedly ordering water vapor from cargo and making neurotoxin beehives, and after that xenobio made sentient spiders that killed half the crew.

To be fair, at least on Bagil, people already act like morons and greytide over literally nothing.

I've had rounds in a row where Assistants will have spears up 30 seconds into the round and they'll be raiding the Brig and Bridge.

You mean after 15 minutes right? If no antags have been found in 15 minutes the crew usually starts tearing itself apart and self antagging.

Random events exist
Only possible problem with extended is that tg is hugbox enough that, by default, anyone who locks themself in a dorm locker has a 99% chance to survive the round. No danger whatsoever without antags
If you’re notva fag though there’s still stuff to do on extended
