How do people feel about the idea of challenging your friends in a duel, removing friendly fire between two players until one of them becomes defeated?
This could be added in the form of an item... Say a glove? Which when used against another player, that player could accept or refuse the duel. Why do I think this would be a great addition?
- I want to practice sword fighting so that I am ready to fight other players when the time comes.
- Fun activity to do when the wind is against you and you need to sail across the map!
- I want to fight in dramatic locations, like on top of the sails.
- While the sword combat system seem fairly robust on paper, most people just jump around swinging wildly. I believe being able to practice on their own terms would help a lot of players understand the mechanics of it.
Additional ways in which this could be implemented? A vote options in the crew menu (Where you send players to the brig), or a circle drawn in the sand at outpost which once entered would enable friendly fire.
PS: Did you know that jumping while blocking makes your character perform a little dodge in the direction your are holding? This is much safer and better than trying to jump away mid-fight. No need to thank me!
