BOOM!!! Arena Mode! *not for sissies*

Post by XidanePayne » Thu May 16, 2013 2:32 pm

Why don't we add a mode like that yeah? :lol: There's a bunch of things to do in the game, and more is being discussed and considered, and probably planned. I'm gonna keep this easy to understand.

- Arena mode (or Survival Mode, whatever you want to call it)
- You battle different ships (probably randomized) for as long as you can
- Every victory yields you a tougher opponent for the next fight
- No pause inbetween... or maybe a 2-3 minute breathing period after 5 or 10 victories
- (optional) If we later in the future used Game Center or a ranking system, we could add a Top List of the best survivors/arena commanders
- (optional super hard mode) Add a time limit to every battle :lol: Sooooo evil!

Rewards, penalties, stuff like that are up for suggestions as well.

Couldn't get any simpler than this, just a mode to get your aggression out if you have a bad day.... or if you're getting tired of Story Mode and wants to take a break from it for a little while.

Yes? No? Maybe? :lol:

Great idea.
Sometimes the campaign gets tiring because you always have to do what the game says
(though the story is fine)
And in most games I do like a survival mode.
Why don't you just let me put your brain in a glass bowl i mean its not like the end of the world!
(Only one reported case of fish in a Cortex's glass bowl it touched the brain dead.)

Survival modes break down along a few angles:
1) score chasing (personal or ranked leaderboards)
2) unlocks (to aid [1])
3) social (team based)

2 is covered by replaying missions and unlocking upgrades, etc. 1 and 2 are essential whereas 3 is what made the mode most popular. It would be interesting but seems like a later addition, perhaps in SC2 or an uber mod 8-)
