Knockback effect on some melees?
For sure. The reason why so many games that are pretty weak in plot on mobile got popular(like Pocket Legend; shots fired pew pew) was because of all of their customizability. Classic has kinda gotten to that point but with only three weapons it ain't as ez. Zone can do that.
Or somebody said something about forging weapons in either this/another thread. Kinda have a shop for upgrades, kind of like minecraft enchanting, where you can get daily upgrades for items but you don't know what they are, for a price. Of course each weapon would have a different feature for that day, and that would make it worth to get multiple guns/melees because some days a slightly weaker weapon could be better than another. Would make it fun, and I think the whole community could have fun where there's like a really good feature for a weapon today and everybody lines up for it. Could be good to test new things too...
Honestly I'm beginning to have hope for Zone again. Like Ive been on every other day on noob accounts but I actually went on my main account today just to PK and hang. Good job to the staff.
As for the knockback, I could see that being really fun. Hit up the fam, get everybody that weapon. Make a circle around SB. Don't let people even touch the base... Set up 5 of us with heal blade so we never die.. Get people like Amer and Omar to kill off the gun noobs... Adrien can set up slowness and ice so people can't walk near us... Ez trolls.
