    Since the only rule now is respawn, they can't really put the toothpaste back in the tube, so option 2 is the most realistic.

    When I think about it, though, "dead is dead" should be the only option, because death as a concept is not only final, but unavoidable in the sense that it is always present as a possibility to anything that lives. To be able to turn it off and on like a switch, I think that takes something away from it.

    I voted 2, but I think that Weapons should be a little less powerfull in that case. And last but not least.... Give me better hints about mines and bombs: half of the times the hints don't work.

    For the moment I'm with 3

    As it stands according to my stats my K/D ratio is 1:4
    coincidentally I am elim'd one in every 4 races which I reckon is actually quite a lot, not sure though.

    I can also imagine getting REALLY REALLY angry when elim'd if I knew I wasn't coming back...moreso than I already do

    I'm not against the idea at all, but I think the weps may need some tweaking.

    ...if it were implemented: imagine getting eliminated by a lapped bomb from the guy in 2nd place or even by a lapped racer

    --> broken controller x 4

    It would make me killing people actually worth something.

    Exactly, just like back in the Pure days.....*wonders off into a daydream*

    It's not as satisfying anymore putting in the effort to knock someone off, used to be a great thrill.

    no respawn would probably lead to a whole new level of griefing, i think respawn is for the better and keeps things fast and involved

    Yeah you're probably right there. Can't imagine it would be very popular across the board (even though I'd still like the option) since it's hard sometimes to even find a room that doesn't have PA on.

    This would be nice indeed, just like offline. You die = you're out, go back to bed.

    That's sort of the point. It brings in another dimension of skill, allowing someone who's not even a skilled racer to beat someone who is by surviving the dangerous environment.

    There were no eliminations at all in the original Wipeout, though. I wonder how many would prefer that?
