There weren’t many great posts this month, but I think 1280 shotgun shells speaks for itself. Plus The Man took the netgames support more than 8 players posts seriously, so we have a winner.
One of those maps is based on an expanded and revised version of Acme Station, so yep, they’re pretty big. I thought AO got rid of the eight-player limitation though, not that I’ve been able to gather a game with that many players yet.
In the two- and three-player games I’ve played no one’s come close to monopolising the ammo, but with more players there’d be a much larger danger of that. Granted, 1280 shotgun shells is overkill, but I’d still want around 240 to be placed on the map, and there really aren’t enough item slots to place them all from the beginning.
I’m plenty effective with other weapons as well, but the WSTE-M is easily the most effective short-range weapon in the game, and not bad at medium range either.
Fixing this shouldn’t be a particularly high priority (actually there are other bugs I’ve found that are more annoying, which I may make a thread for soon) but I would like to see it done at some point.
