Oh! Oh! Oh! I have a new channel idea...

Postby Iaiken » Sat Feb 17, 2001 6:31 am

I don't know if this has been mantioned before, but really, it'll be better than Sunday Night Football(or the XFL...take your pick)!

Ok, what if there were a separate channel that you could "tune into" which would allow you to view the happenings of a fight in the arena... If you slowed the battle speeds down slightly... it could be easy and interesting to follow... players could easily add taunts and other things without detracting from thier combat skills and thus put on a GREAT show...

Just a thought, sorta eurika-like when it donned on me...

I think putting the combat over a channel is a bit overboard, but I think putting results of fights in the arena over a channel would be kinda nice, makes betting easier Image

being able to watch fights as they happen in the arena would be cool... why not put bleachears or something there where people can be in the room but flagged in the bleachers so they cant be attacked or get hit by area spells... imagine how many people would cram the bleachers to watch two studly players duke it out

There isn't an arena 'room', there are 4 arena zones. > Image

How's that for a teaser?

The coolest way to do this in my opinion would be to allow for players that are participating in the arena fight and who give permission to be snooped exactly like the immortal snoop ability.

Maybe have wannabe snoopers pay a fee or have to be in a certain room and they could put the feature on and watch through the players eyes the battle.

I'm not sure I'd like being snooped myself though Image.

I don't think bleachers are going to cut it, you would have to basically flag no_kill in a pkill zone and walk around... ffffeeeehhh!!

How about a toggle message, like a wizmsg, something that would flash across ppl with it toggled on, like:

<font color="#cc0000">ARENA *** Rhoquinn has killed Vigis in mortal combat</font>

It's spelled 'kombat' Image

Sorry.. Had a bad fighting game flashback... ;p

The first movie was halfway decent tho! The second one blew huge chunks.

Oh.. I agree with a toggle message for arena deaths etc. I liked the feature that EQ added though where you never saw messages involving combatants below level 20.. Cuts a lot of spam, and people just goofing around.

i mentioned bleachers because i think it would be cool to see a whole fight between two badasses rather than just a message on a channel... imagine nilan vs. ragorn or something... you want to hear about that on a channel or see it firsthand?
