View Full Version : killing someone
November 26th, 2003, 06:17 AM
Is there a sure fire method to kill another gladiator in the game or is it more pure luck? Does death happen more often if you use an attack fighting posture vs. either a defensive or normal fighting posture?
I've won fights with the opponent dropping down to -12 wp and they just faint at the most, yet the computer controlled gladiators seem to score 2-4 kills (amongst all of them) per demo game.

No, there's no magical "formula" for deaths; it's a combination of the opponent's Durability and the sequence of wounds in a fight (several bad rounds in a row can sometimes trigger a death) and a dash of just luck.

I have a question in relation to death in the game. Are there different ways in which a Gladiator dies? In the demo Version I killed a Gladiator due to internal bleeding. Are there decapitations for example in the full Version?(I know..That's sick..LOL) Can you list some deaths in the game?

Yes, due to numerous player requests (and that's a little disturbing in itself http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon7.gif ), more graphic death possibilities will be added to the game.
After writing these, i'll never watch a Friday the 13th type film again. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon10.gif

Can you also create a graveyard where we can go an look at a list of the fallen, along with their stats and an idicator of if they fought for you or not?
There is a time for every purpose under heaven... a time to mourn.

You read my mind, Trebor1503! I just got finished adding and testing a "Memorial" screen to the full game, that features a recorded history of your slain and retired warriors; their name, record and how they left (retired or how they were killed; the Last 50 will be recorded).
Will help add a sense of depth and history (and closure, as you said) to the game, I think. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon7.gif

Yes - a very good idea.

Yeah, I agree. A very good idea.
Speaking of death, I have killed one gladiator in one my demo sessions, and I had one of my gladiators die. Can't wait for a more extended list of gruesome deaths!! hehe

I would like to see a list of the gladiators MY PLAYERS killed too (with info stats). That would be quite satsifying as well - and I'm not violent either, just a stat buff! http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon7.gif
