I could just remove the arsenal crate from the game and allow you to show anywhere (or only inbetween rounds)
The impact on the game won't be that huge since you're always camping in a room with a crate nearby.

Reasons to remove it:
-Taking up space in already crowded areas.
-Wasted rounds when nobody bought one
-Wasted starting cash when people buy 2 or more
-Tedious coordinating with noobs in order to have exactly 1 per game.

Your thoughts?

LDT is LDT.

So, no arsenal crate, but we can still buy shit anywhere?

I'm loving it.

Great idea, although I think you should replace the Arsenal Crate with something else. How about a crate where you can sell your items? Nevermind, don't listen to my stupid ideas. Just do your thing and ignore me.

That would ruin a main source of income for people. Without this, Endgame guns would be damm near impossible.

Even my "Poitn Whore Arsenal ver" Would be out of the job.

I like the idea, but don't people get points for people using their arsenal crate?
Well, whatever. Humans need to be buffed up anyway.

Until you told me about this idea, I had no idea there was a difference between any of all of those crates...
I think this is an excellent way to make the gamemode one step less overcomplicated, without hurting the gameplay experience.

How about a notifier on top of the screen during the countdown?
Example: "0/2 Arsenal Crates bought so far"

You could limit the amount of crates available to 1, but I figured 2 would be better if the first person becomes a zombie.

You could make it so only one/two can be bought from the menu?

Two's best cause people might not always hold out in the same spot.

Although it is true about the whore income thing, I forgot about that...

I thought that, but if you look at the salesman thing at the end of the round, you will find that on high-player, extremely long matches this is about 400, meaning 40 bucks profit for the dude who placed it.

40 points for 1 guy over the entire game is NOT a main source of income at all. The items you can buy pre-round for the cost of a arsenal crate easily outweigh that.

I made over 200 points the last match I went with the arsenal crate.

Its a damm good source for the guy who gets it in an organized team.
Everyone kept buying ammo from it, because noone bought an resupply crate :D

You're making this too easy.


Are there any REAL reasons not to remove it, aside from greed?
(And if you are really worried about the money you won't be getting, I might drop ALL ammo in price, which has a much larger impact than 1 guy of the 32 getting income.)

How about combining both crates, call it a supply crate, and, like Tabole said, only allow one?

Agree with Tabole ! Just limit the crate or change the price of the crate !

No, I think you should be able to buy stuff regardless of there being a crate or not.
You worked hard for those point, and it's not like you get a lot of em.

What about this... You can buy weapons for normal cost at any time any where, but at the arsenal crate you ALWAYS get 25% discount AND an extra 10% when it's in between rounds ;)

I think that's overcomplicating it. This gamemode is stupidly complex and illogical D:
