25 to 30 block lifespan
+
Bring back General + 2 Hunters.

only - each hunter/general is worth something in pvp.. e.g. 50 for general, 25 for hunters.. or all equal value.

1. Life Span of Hunters = ~60 to 80 Blocks


The number should be lower, not much higher than 25, to make it impossible to keep the status quo (that new spawned hunters are always outnumbered on the better harvest areas) by steadily spawning 1, 2 or even 3 hunters per block, which would be easy for the dominators.



good point. Even at 25 blocks lifespan, players can just keep spam cycling - but it would be much more costly.

Lets say 25 or 30 then.

For combat - due to predictability and bottable-ness - imo should consider :

not showing your hand until it's too late concept - this could be considered true randomness + skill play. but at least less predictable.
like:
1. Traps  - previous concerns of it being overpowered if you have multiple hunters should be reduced due to low life span.
2. Patterns -  assign a destruct pattern - destruct, show the pattern within x blocks

good but a little time consuming atm -
Engage in a 1 v 1 combat - you get a party vs party style combat - top down, turn based. dice roll style and different attacks so it is not easily bottable.

or

Just add randomness to destruct - remove the skill factor (because there is none anyway at the moment). This could be easiest temporary solution imo.
If you destruct someone - the players are locked and cannot move - and for the next blocks they each take a random amount of dmg until one lives. by spreading it across multiple blocks it should make it harder for miners to manipulate - but in any case, it would only be a temporary solutions and gives everyone a pretty much even-ish chance.

This basically is gambling..
thinking more you will just end up with loads of hunters spawning knowing they have 50 50 chance so it wont change much


another brain dump. if you destruct you are froze for x blocks. has its flaws as well

Great idea! I wanted to test, but it shows an error. What can be wrong?


I could reproduce this error by starting "huntercoin-qt.exe" directly instead of the shortcuts "huntercoin-qt.exe - 1" and "huntercoin-qt.exe - 2 - scrypt".

It would then use the normal Windows data folder for Huntercoin "C:\User\...\AppData\Roaming\Huntercoin". The error happens if there is already a blockchain (mainnet, probably) that is not compatible with this testnet-in-a-box.

We are currently looking at this for options :

1. Life Span of Hunters = ~60 to 80 Blocks

2. Combat Changes >

Some Ideas:
Random Destruct Patterns (not random every block)
Colours have different attack styles

--

3. Make use of the Empty Areas

General Discussion / Re: Huntercoin Snapshot for Chimaera

Yes fun times indeed, playing with dozens of actual players was way different :) I just tried playing for the first time in over 2 years and it's not fun, lethal killing bots all around, yikes. Anyway, so what exactly did Poloniex say, exchanging the balance when it's released or get them as per snapshot balance in their system on the snapshot date? They will probably get them for their balance, so I guess distributing what they get is what they mean, is it? Would be good to clarify it with them to make sure that part goes smoothly (too ;) fingers crossed no major dramas). Btw, if there is anything I can help with, let me know. Take care!!
