My thoughts on the rust player rank kits
I like the idea of the player rank kits but I don't know how your idea would plan out. If making low ranking players get better loot (say guns) to give them and edge or on the same playing field as players who regularly play on the server then I can see people going on an alt rust account just to get the good kit gear as their main with a higher rank will get less quality gear. I think there is a different approach to the player kits and here is my idea. Instead of it being PvP orientated (which I don't know if it was planned to be like that or not just guessing) have it more base building orientated. So say a rookie or a player rank on the server the kit would give you like wood, stone, metal frags, maybe a shotgun trap, and a door as such so new players and get a 2x2 metal base down without having to worry about getting shot while trying to gather materials. Then for the better kits like member, pro, and elite have the kit give you gears for doors or a little hqm to upgrade your base along with the past ranks loot also being in the kits. Like each time you rank up you get something extra in your kit. then say for vet, demon, and specialist you get good base building materials like a hqm door, a auto turret, or just even more hqm. Then for the Legends and god ranks out there give them like lots of hqm and doors but not to the point that their base will be unraidable but just something to work for so its worth the 640+ and 1280+ hours into the server. Now I will say im not a game dev nor am I a balancing dev but that is just my take on player kits 🙂
Many thanks for your suggestion, the thought behind the kits was never to give weapons / ammo and armor it was always to give building materials. We have no decided what yet and this will be another community discussion probably something we talk about all together on discord one night.
The main idea of my suggestion is to find out if the community agree to a diminishing kit system.
i think this reverse kit system can work, players who been on server for a time , know how the server works and how to get the stuff u need realy fast.
but as ashslyn say , u must reward the ones that stay on the server for a long time, im a Legend, soon the Devil 🙂
