    Post Implement the return of "dead is dead" rule.

    I ask you if you are for or against a new option in the race online.

    The "dead is dead" rule. Like in WipEout Pulse, a contender eliminated can't respawn, he scores 0 point.

    I remember Paul Tweedle told us we could hope this option in a future update of the game.

    Big advantage : a contender eliminated could look some adverts since others finish their race !

    I voted for option 1, because personally I feel that is the way it should be. Realistically I don't think it ever will be like that again at least not online so option 2 sounds more likely.

    I voted 2. But I would only consider using the option if lag effects were lower and weapons a little less powerful. As it is you can sometimes be eliminated on the first lap even without a single weapon hit. That wouldn't be much fun.

    I'm the loner that wants respawn. As long as the weapons and collision damage do that much damage, I really don't want my race to be over on lap 1.

    Edit: I now actually read Saturns reply. I agree with the reasoning, only I don't want to give anybody the choice

    I voted 2, it sounds fair.

    I agree with Saturn that damages caused by weapons should be smaller. Damages caused by coliding with other ship should be 10x smaller.
    Also "pushing off the track" by other ship should be exclusive for eliminator mode.

    I voted 2. Sometimes there's so much collateral damage being inflicted that I'd hate to sit out a whole race because of fatal damage right off the starting line. But it would be good if you could get in a room with a bunch of people you know that don't fly everywhere haphazardly then it would be good. Or at the very least have ship to ship contact not count against your health.

    Great idea - I voted for 2. Hopefully we'll see this implemented in the near future

    I originally thought that respawning would be a bad idea in WipEout, but with all the chaos it is almost necessary. That isn't to say it would be a bad thing, though. The few days that the game had a strange glitch I did infact enjoy getting eliminated for real. It would be good to be able to have all the old options for a bit more variety, we already have no barrel rolls so why not permanent elimination? So I voted 2.
