Let traitor uplink slowly generate crystals

Postby CPTANT » Sun Jul 19, 2020 8:07 am #570033

Currently what traitors get is entirely front loaded, you get 20 tc and that's it. I was thinking about it and thought that maybe it would be interesting for traitors to not get everything up front but have the uplink slowly generate tc over the course of the round, this would space out traitor gear more and give some early game breathing room. It makes it more interesting for traitors to try and acquire gear early because they know their traitor gear takes time to arrive.

Of course the actual numbers need to be discussed, I am just laying out the general idea.

That is used by a tiny majority of people.

Sounds like a bad idea because it encourages traitors to sit in a closet doing nothing to drive the round for thirty minutes to maximise gamer gear.

Could give traitors all their tcs when the emergency shuttle gets called.
I code for the code project and moderate the code sections of the forums.

Why realism is stupid:
Spoiler:
Wiz, the project lead of Europa Universalis IV:

Immersion/flavor is playing a WW2 shooter and using a mosin-nagant instead of a laser gun - this is important.

Realism is playing a WW2 shooter and having to spend 2 months in hospital everytime you get shot - stupid and detrimental to gameplay. Nobody actually wants a realistic game, which is why realism arguments are so selectively used.

Bad idea.

If this was gonna work it would need to be tied to actively doing objectives, at which point you've just got the contractor kit.
