So... We have these MMO's and all I ever hear people talk about is that they don't have feature X or feature Y. The game is too easy. The game is too hard.
Why don't MMO's have a difficulty slider or some kind of thing where you can put a checkmark beside the things you want your game to have? When you make a new character, go down the list:
Can I play, Daddy?: Just play the game. Don't check anything. This is for the kids, carebears, and the casuals.
Bring 'em on!: Check as many of these as you want at character creation. Maybe you are rewarded with better loot drops or better money earnings depending on how many you check. Maybe you do it just for the challenge. Who knows? These cannot be changed after you have created the character. This is for people who have balls.
1. Corpse Run.
When you die, you have to find your corpse to get your stuff and XP back.
2. XP Loss on Death.
If you die, you lose XP even if you find your corpse.
3. Lootable Corpse
If you enable this, and the person you fight in PvP has it enabled, the winner (and only the winner) gets to loot the other player's corpse. If only one person has it checked, no one has loot rights. If you die in PvE, no one can loot your corpse... or maybe they can?
4. Ironman Mode
Perma-Death. No exceptions... ... Well, maybe you can buy and sell 1-Ups lol. But they are absolutely the most rare thing in the game. People should have to fight for them!
5. Longer XP cycles
You require twice as much XP to level up.... Maybe more!
6. Massive Criticals
You take twice as much damage on Critical Hits.
7. Massive Damage
All White Damage dealt to you is increased.
Your chatbox is completely disabled. You don't want to talk to anyone... but even better... they don't want to talk to you. Have fun with your MMO.
I am Death incarnate!: Check everything available in Hard Mode (Anti-Social is not necessary.) This is for Developers who have God Mode enabled and/or People who were born from the seed of a Spartan and have Dragon Blood coursing through their veins. If ever you manage to legitimately get to Max Level or whatever... you get something so awesome.... you will be the coolest dude in the universe until the next game is released!
Seems to me this sort of thing should be in MMO's, pronto. And really, I don't know how you checking any of this would affect any other player's game.
