Gameplay Idea: Weighted Armor

Postby r0ck4ev3r » Thu Jun 01, 2023 6:42 pm

Add in a small stacking negative movement speed modifier based on armor type(s): Padded (cloths) -> Studded (hide/bone/leather) -> Reinforced (metals)

Additionally, changing your armor in combat would force a combat cool down.(Scope creep: A mini action/timer to doff armors in combat)

Example data:
r0ck4ev3r wrote:Let me quantify a value of "small" to movement speed de-buff: Someone armored would lose around a tile and a half for every hundred tiles ran (Speed*[1-[x/100])

0.3 for Reinforced
0.2 for Studded
0.1 for Padded

Five reinforced items would add up to 1.5 for a value of x.
Speed*(1-[1.5/100]) = Movement would equal 0.985 of total.
//values estimated and simplified for example.

Edit:
Very unpopular opinion

+1
OOooooo
I like this idea!
Rather than the non-debuff of AGI, movement speed, which changes the game a lot, would be interesting.
Not sure how it could be implemented to make it so that there is cause to use it though.

They tried this in a few other games what happens is the fast guys poke you run away, and laugh. poke you more and laugh more then you die as you cannot defend yourself.

When using attack cards speed is leveled ... et voilà

Edit: Probably any cards
