"Max weapon" (NW) idea, akin to "max tattoo" stat (in General)

Sickone December 21 2007 4:02 AM EST

You know how when you use weapons "too powerful" for you (with very limited success, I might add), your PR increases hugely, but when you wear an oversized tattoo it doesn't ?
What if the "max effective NW" of a weapon would be capped effect-wise and PR-increase-wise much like the max tattoo effective level is ?

This way, you can still increase your PR (and performance) by equipping an oversized weapon, but the weapon-caused PR increase would only go up to a certain level (anywhere between 10% to 30% extra PR on top of MPR tops), and as such, the actual effectiveness of the weapon would be reduced in the hands of an "unexperienced" individual.
The cutoff point (NW-wise) would be proportional on both x and +, rounded either way you choose.

This way renting/borrowing a heavily oversized weapon would make sense (it won't totally cripple your chances of doing anything), but it won't do you a lot of good either, since you get a lot less as you pay for.

That's not a bad idea. I like it.

Weapons underneath your max allowance should also grow at a rate about half of the rate at which your WA grows :P.

Really, though, I like this idea. I also like the idea of putting some sort of indicator on the homepage telling you what your max WA is without you having to trial-and-error out how big is too big.

I'd rather simply get rid of WA, but that's just me...

Max weapon NW is a nice idea, as long as it's displayed just like the max tattoo level, and not hidden like the WA is now.

Get verifex's script, it tells you your Weapon Allowance on the train page.

Oh, I really haven't noticed that poll (actually, the poll history section altogether).
When was that ?
