Last man standing activity

Recommended Posts

Hello players,

Here's a suggestion that I think would make Last man standing more active than it currently is.

 

Suggestion introduction:

As some of you might know, Last man standing has been a dead minigame on Zaros for a good while now. The reason behind that is most likely lack of server-side advertisement and fairly bad rewards. Last man standing game currently starts only when a player starts advertising it on yell, which he apparently cannot do more often than once in three minutes. We need a proper yell info advertisement to remind players about the existence of Last man standing. Also adding consumable items to the store would keep the interest for regular/ironman to keep grinding.

 

What I think should be improved:

• Adding Last man standing wins to hiscores. This would motivate players to get their wins up in the minigame.

 

LMS advertisement:

• Server advertisement telling how many people there are in last man standing (this should appear on yell every 5 minutes ONLY, when there's atleast one player in).

Info: "There's currently x players in Last man standing, join by typing ::lms!"

This would also clean the "All come to ::LMS" yells out, which are now only way to promote the minigame.

 

LMS store:

• Add 'instance tokens' to the store for 5 points each. (Regular/Ironman)

Add 'Slayer task skip scrolls' to the store 5 points each. (Regular/Ironman)

• Edit 'Potion pack' so it would give you 10 super combat potions, keep the price at 5 points. (Regular)

• Nerf looting bag price to 5 points each.

• Nerf every Blighted sack prices to 3 points each, keep the stacks same.

 

If you got any good improvement ideas or suggestions, feel free to post on this thread and i'll add them below. 🙂

 

Good ideas from this thread:

Last man standing daily events would be really nice to have as well. I personally think there should be multiple events daily with smaller prizes/point amounts, instead of just one with bigger reward.

100% support this, LMS needs updated and would be good to have some events around it. Also feel there needs to be more randomized LMS game modes which would draw in more players. BR mode with updated loot would be a nice update.

I'm having mixed feelings about randomly changing the setups in LMS, only because that could cause players leaving the minigame. Some players would like to participate melee only matches, but then leave when it's time for NH match and vice versa. If this is being considered by the developers, they should make a vote system where you can vote in LMS lobby to choose the mode.

I would camp LMS for instance tokens for sure. It is really annoying to get them as an ironman, and if you use the store for it they are so expensive it hurts... I wouldn't mind it being added for ironmen wildy keys loot aswell. Support.

I’m unsure about the additional rewards but I support the better advertisement. That alone could help the mini game become more active.

Yes, Last man standing events are needed for sure. Every four hours, 3x points for one game?

I personally think that consumable items that are important is the biggest thing to keep the game alive. I've done some research about the lms inactivity and the reason seems always be the same; bad rewards.

I don't think this will increase player rate at LMS. Most ironman play iron for pvm, therefore they lack Pvp skills, which results in getting 0 points. 
If there would be a way to get points even if you lose then there would be some more people joining in I think.

There's alternative ways to obtain all of these items, so it wouldn't affect ironman negatively at all. LMS is a minigame that requires certain skills and I created this topic solely to make this minigame more active, this would literally not take anything away from anyone.

What comes to ironman, LMS is currently the only reasonable way to PVP, because blood money has no use and it doesn't require skilling or items.

About increasing player rate at LMS, i've done my research and all the players are complaining about the current rewards not being good enough, therefore important consumables (Instance tokens & Slayer task skip scrolls) would be important to add in the shop.

 

Thanks for your feedback!

Not against making LMS more attractive and adding more relevant rewards for pvmers/ironmen on top of adding better advertisement for it might do the trick.

Having a daily LMS event is not something I personally agree with, rather save that for weekend events where more people are able to participate and give LMS all the attention during that time but other than that a good suggestion.

My main issue with the minigame is that I am a PVM'mer at the core, and I am not into pking. I don't know if I speak for more PVMmers with the same issue but playing the minigame and just getting slaughtered gives you 0 points for playing. Its very frustrating to get a kill and for that reason, I have no need to play the minigame. I'm sure that bots/inactive players could flood LMS if everybody got points for just being there but it would revive the minigame, also, to combat that a player could for instance need to eat all their food or something to have taken part in the game to receive a point.

I'm no PK'er but seeing the player base dwindle due to having no clue when an event is is truly a shame.
