Bonus BP for not running perks.

GibberishGibberish Member Posts: 853

A simple 25% Bonus BP for each perk you dont run.

Eg: If you only run 2 perks, you get a 50% bonus. If you dont run any perks, you get a 100% bonus.

This would have two benefits:

-Help new players who dont have all the perk slots unlocked farm a bit faster

-Give good players a reward for handicapping themselves.

    Not a bad idea. It doesn't show here but I gave a yes vote.

    Speaking of handicapping yourself and BP, No Mither should give 100% bonus in Survival category (or like 50% in all categories)

    Good idea.

  • AwakeyAwakey Member Posts: 3,145

    Sure, why not.

    It's a good idea, but if they do this, I hope that No Mither will give you a BP bonus too

    This is a really good idea but I think some perks like No Mither and WGLF should not change the amount of BP you gain if you choose to run them (basically it's like you're perkless even if you use them).

    ...and because I edited my comment my vote is invisible now (I voted yes ofc).

    From a game design perspective, incentivizing players to not use the things they've worked to get just feels bad. Perks help the game not become stale, as you can switch them up and try different builds. If you got more points for not running them, then what are you ultimately gaining points for?

    But We’re Going to Live Forever exists, a perk that famously does jack ######### in regards to helping you. All it does is waste a perk slot for a potentially better perk, and that just circles back to your argument; why use it if it wastes a slot for something else you earned? The reason? POINTS. There’s nothing wrong with giving the player more options to gain points and incentivizing them NOT to rely on perks is going to ultimately help them in the long run. I’m not really sure what kind of argument you’re trying to go for, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense; again, seeing as the perk WGLF exists and it doesn’t to a single thing, unlike BBQ&C.

    Make the game extra challenging for more BP?

    Sure why not! That sounds like a great idea!

    I disagree. WGLF is a perk and you use it to get more BP and that's it. It doesn't do anything else but that. The difference is that WGLF takes one slot for the possibility (honestly is not that hard to get the 4 stacks) of 100% Bonus BP but you still able to use other 3 perks. There's a big difference between using 3 perks with 100% bonus and none with 100% bonus. I agree with drimmalor as from a game design perspective, it doesn't make sense to get BP so you can get perks, but then not use those perks so that you can get more BP to get more perks you won't be using. Either way, since WGLF exists, this bonus doesn't sense. Maybe they could create a very rare offering that gives you 50% bonus BP for each perk slot not used (secret offering so you don't get a killer using the I'm Gonna Tunnel You Forever perk). Now that would be great.
