Bots falling from the border rather than exploding

Post#1 » 14 Sep 2017, 14:17

I think it would be funny to see bots falling down from the map rather than exploding when they cross the border. Previously the space outside was considered as a place where the spectators sit (i.e. watching real gladiators in ancient Rome), but it is truly virtual arena, so it can be considered as something floating in void space (i.e. like in some games in "Tron" movie). I believe such an animation won't be too hard to put into the game and could make matches more spectacular. What do you think?

Why not, although I do think that there being a force field around the stadium makes more sense

*Waits for animation glitch where bot gets stuck in floor forcing a draw*

(I like the idea too. +1)

Even better: when a bot dies it says "uh oh" and then a grave pops up in its place

But do Bots get buried? I don't think so...

Oh, come on! No graves! Having glass walls around the arena and nicer explosions in the current version I would rather like to see debris lying around... But no graves, for Bot's sake! ;)
