Proposal: Acid Drain

Timed out 5 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 21 Jul 2011 01:22:40 UTC

In the rule “Acid Pools”, replace “If a Temporary Acid Pool would be created and there are already two or more other Temporary Acid Pools, the oldest one is removed before the new one is created.” with:-

If the Arena contains more than two Temporary Acid Pools, any Gladiator may remove a single Temporary Acid Pool from the Arena.

I just took out the oldest pool, since we had three on the board. Checking the wiki page history to see in which order they entered play was a bit tedious, and the automagic “is removed” is just another step to potentially render someone’s move illegal.

imperial While you are right, the removing might be a lot easier in the future due to the logging rule. Anyone using an acid barrel has to describe that in their log.

True, but you’d still have to check two earlier versions of the map to see where the pools were actually placed.

for I quite like this idea. It gives gladiators with an acid barrel more of a chance of getting a frag, since at the moment, it is pretty hard to do so with an acid barrel. I didn’t ever use mine because I couldn’t get into the right position.

No, it reduces the chances of getting a frag, since gladiators will remove the more annoying acid pools. Thus a well-placed acid barrel will get less frags since it will go away quicker.
