    Lets not focus on the cosmetic for the top 5 players right now anyways. Players are already incentivized to rank up because its on the splash screen and on !ladder.

    With regards to the arena closing out..I think we should have the players removed from the game. It'll be more exciting that way. As long as: 1) the bot warns when it happens 2) there is some reasonable countdown, and 3) there are clear markings on the arena that show how the arena will shrink over time.

    I thought about playing Ss today, but then I logged in and got a notification that said I'm silenced for 620mins. So I logged back off. Can someone remove that for me, game is dumb when I can't do esc+a or talk?! What ever I said over one month ago I'm sorry for it LOL

    Kind of feeling this way as well. It would add significant time to the download, and it's a fairly major overhaul. We could make it an optional download, but that kind of defeats the purpose of showing off your unique ship.

    With regards to the arena closing out..I think we should have the players removed from the game. It'll be more exciting that way. As long as: 1) the bot warns when it happens 2) there is some reasonable countdown, and 3) there are clear markings on the arena that show how the arena will shrink over time.
    If we do it this way it might be a larger restructuring of how it all works. For example, not using doors, but instead using a marker on the map to show what's in or out of bounds. Also worth noting, BR games usually reduce your life rather than eliminate for out of bounds, and I think that works pretty well. We could elim them for out of bounds, or we could do negative full charge every second/few seconds (knocks energy to 0), or just add on a death. Or some hybrid. Negative FC for 10 seconds, and if you don't leave in that time, it warps you, it elims you, it adds a death, etc.

    The easiest thing to do without an overhaul is to make the arena smaller as people are eliminated and give them 10 seconds to move to the smaller arena before they're warped. If everyone knows when it will happen, it's harder to complain about getting screwed by it.

    Why don't you make Elim a league with a set schedule? Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday (after Dueling Cup) or something, 3x a week.

    Everyone gets to play, and puts an end to elim being absolute garbage in terms of ranks, since half the Top 10 are being fed, then going on aliases with low-ranked names and hunting their competitors.

    It's a complete joke as it stands, and lots of players get good ratings waiting for good players to not be in and selectively choosing which elims to play.
