New Hunt Option: Suicide!
« on: October 21, 2013, 09:33:03 AM »
I want a new hunt option: Suicide!

How it works:

* Slotted in after the Stamina hunt option
* It has an unlimited number of zeds in it
* Each zed is progressively more difficult to kill in the hunt (starts with undead Party Girls, ends with Impervious Bloodfoot) Each Zed could be 1 level higher than the previous one killed. For the HC in us, that would make for a pretty busy screen...  :o
* You keep hunting until you get killed
* It takes all your energy to perform the hunt
* You get the XP related to all the zeds you kill, plus a small amount of XP for the Zed that killed you
* You get the cash for the zeds that you killed too
* For each X number of killed zeds you could have a reward (kill 10 in the hunt, get a special drop; make it to 100 and get a special title; etc.)

Titles, drops and leaderboards can be created to commemorate the feats of glorious sacrifice made by the kamikaze (former) survivors.

I. Want. To. Mow. Down. Zeds. Farmer John-Style.  8)
Interesting idea, cscott300. Difficulty isn't an automatic death sentence to a good idea. :)

Another way I could see this working:

In Raid events, fourth hunt option that costs 10x your player level in energy, you keep hunting the boss until you drop.

A gauntlet-style hunt event  might also be a fun change of pace.

That would be bawse! Excellent tangent idea!

As long as the player xp for killing the higher tiers is great, it would be a pretty sweet twist to Scott's idea!

More med kits means longer non stop hunting.
There's a pretty little earner for MDI.

I can't wait.

I would love to mow down a bunch of zombies!!  *heart eyes*

While I like the raid events, there's just a different feeling between "you did 5000 damage" versus... "you just mowed down 500 zombies"

I dunno about you guys, but I couldn't resist the party girls in the stam hunt from the last event.  One swipe took out all 8 of them.  It's was like herbal essence shampoo orgasmic.

I very much agree Pugg. I would love to have a mini horde instead of a "HP bag Boss" during raids. I think that would be much more fun.  ;D
