  • Helmet Replacement

    LaughingRat has already said that he believes helmets, for their current price, should not break. I'm too lazy to find that quote.

    I offer another idea: if you invested in a helmet and it breaks, the next time you use the guard chest your helmet is replaced.

    I think someone else has suggested two helmets: a cheaper one that breaks, and the at the current price (or slightly more) an unbreakable one.

    Other ideas, anyone...?

      There's already a way to avoid getting BJed: it's called cheating.

      Are you a cheater, LameHamster?

        Don't be mean. He's got newbie status. LOL.

        If you want a new helmet, there ARE 3 legal ways in the game you can get a replacement one!

        1. You die. Buy a new one in your next loadout.
        2. The mapper is REALLY nice and puts extra helmets on the map.
        3. Thbuyzone. Its a place where you can buy more stuff on a map with your loot.

        #1 is the most common cause no one has made a map with 2 or 3 yet.

        So, unless that happens, stick with #1.

            Don't worry. I worked for a year as a substitute elementary school teacher, and know the difference. :roll:

              Nice idea

              Although, personally I think the helmet shouldn't break from failed BJ attempts.

              People who buy a helmet should keep the helmet till they die or get properly power-BJ-ed. Otherwise teams of thieves can just gang-rape a guard & smash his helmet, wasting the 50 loot he spent on it.

              I've resorted to this really pathetic tactic myself, in dark areas: Keep Bj-ing a guard till he has no helmet left, leaving him vulnerable for later. The sooner that this tactic is prevented, the better.

                I think the helmet is pretty good as-is. Sure I agree that it cracking into pieces is kinda unrealistic, but for balance it is good, since helmets were mainly used to keep your skull from being sliced open, not protect it from blunt-force like the ones we have today. And if you wanna use a full force BJ, holding your arm in the air is kinda annoying as it blocks your vision.

                  Just make the helm take more whacks from the front (2 charged knocks worth say-6 normal) since we all know the side is basically the back :lol: that isnt counted.

                    A helmet costs 60, not 50 like The_Dan said.

                    Right now they are totally useless. I've changed my loadouts to not include a helmet, and I don't get KO'ed any more than I used to. I think they are useless because most of the time a thief will just whack the guard from the front to remove the helmet, and then go for the KO.

                    Helmets should be permanent, and they should make it much harder to get KO'ed - then they'd be worth buying. I'm thinking, with a helmet, it should take 2 fully-charged swings to be KO'ed.

                    Another idea I had to make helmets more useful is to have them reduce the flashbomb effect - although if they are still made of brittle glass and come off if someone sneezes on it, I wouldn't buy it.

                        It is true that buying a helmet is pretty much useless at the moment, but just making it unbreakable would be insane. It would make killing even more acceptable.
                        I suggest if the helmet becomes unbreakable at still a cost of 60, one more thing should be added.
                        The helmet should impair the guards vision as they did in real life. Maybe instead of the full view like now, maybe when you buy a helmet 2/3 of the guard's view becomes blacked out.

                          2/3rd is alot.... and I agree that the helmet shouldn't be unbreakable, but it should resist damage a little better though.

                          How about, make the helmet break when the guard recieves more than a certain amout of damage? For example when his health drops below 40 hp?

                          That way, guards would still have to stay on their toes, but the helmet wouldn't act as if it were made of glass.

                            I don't really see a problem with an unbreakable helmet, as long as thieves can still KO with a fully charged blackjack. It means that thieves will have to plan their KO's a bit more in advance (like 1-2 seconds), deal with the impaired vision of a raised blackjack, and not make any gain if their KO attempt is unsuccessful.

                              Personally I never buy a helmet any more either. Your going to get koed in one hit any way, a thief NEVER will try and bj you with out a charged hit if you have a helmet. So all it basically does is makes you feel safe, and makes thieves take an extra second of preparation to ko you.
