PZ flag - a possible upgrade to its abilities

Post by RexFlex » Sun Apr 29, 2007 1:47 am

I've been having an idea about improving the PZ flag, and the other thread about PZ flag worlds had me thinking.

A lot of people think that the PZ flag is entirely useless, and on many arenas I have to agree.

What if PZ "zoning" was tied in to your jump key, so instead of jumping on that key you toggle in or out of the phantom zone. That way the flag would be amongst the superflags - not so dependent on the teleporter positions. It would also give the PZ holder incentive to not camp in those positions.

You would still be vunerable to SW, SB and other PZ tanks in the same zone as you, plus your zoning into normal space still makes you vunerable to sniper shots, so it won't be impossible to kill you.

But if people still think it would make the PZ tank too powerful (and I'm edging to agree), what if it could only zone back into normal space with the jump button, after which it turns back to a normal jump and you are stuck in normal space until you re-zone yourself through a teleport?
"Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight, or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin paid; mostly only when I'm gettin paid. But eating people alive, when does that get fun?"

yea, toggleing in and out of PZ would be a bit powerful IMO, a bit like OO only your free to move around.

That would be better.

I was just about to post in the thread about the PZ that I created the other day.

Grace, your comments gave me an idea on how to modify/change PZ........

When you pickup a PZ flag, that is what would put you into the phantom zone. The flag itself would be an auto-zoning flag, you'd pick it up and then a 'wormhole' would open up in front of you and then bam, you'd be in the phantom zone. Picking up a normal zone flag would do the same thing.

Instead of picking up the flag and having to go to a teleporter. Although, again, power to the server owner. S/he would have the option to make it either way. Flag = auto zone or flag = nothing until you go to a teleporter.

Once in the phantom zone.......... Well.......... see my post for suggestions. :lol-old: :lol-old: :lol-old:
