Riot Baton
« on: June 17, 2020, 08:27:15 PM »
Give riots guards a "Riot Baton" which is just a stick with Knockback 3-4, this way in a mass riot the guard can knock the prisoners back to give the guard a chance to recoup or gapple. Could also be used to help keep rioters that are fleeing from pvp from going into a safezone.

You know I was actually just thinking to myself, 'You know who would be a good guard?' Then it came to me. Obviously Dragon1240 would be a good guard. +1

that's just going to make guards more of a sissy than they already are

guards already run around the prison during riots, and when they die they just sit in spawn for 30 minutes. Giving them a "riot baton" is just going to break prison pvp even more.

The whole point is to give guards an actual chance during the mass 1v2 or 1v3s, depending on current buffs. This would encourage guards to take up these fights more commonly.  Currently we have to run because that would be the only chance we get to actually survive and fight, because running gives us the chance to gapple and regen what little health we already have. With this we would be able to take more of a beating and then it might actually come down to armor durability and more or less skill than it being just an absolute butt touching moment for the guard.

or maybe to knock the prisoners away from the safe zone since they all just want to sit right on the edge and wait for us to knock them in to eat some gaps

If it were me, I would be super upset if this kept happening and the guard drops are as they are now. If the guard drops got better, the baton would be a perfect match.
yeah okay, i love avatar: the last airbender. what's your point?

Guards really have one sole job. To Die. Stop trying to avoid or prolong the inevitable.

Bad idea

What needs to happen is prisoners need to be punished more harshly for safezoning/teleporting away from a fight during a riot.

These fights usually contain 6-10 prisoners and all but 2 or 3 end up running away the second more than 1 guard gets on.

In a real prison punishments are harsher for those participating in a riot. The current system rewards people for starting a riot and running away when they know they're going to lose. Make running away have a harsher penalty and you wont need a stupid baton to control a riot.

I think a lot of the problems with people safezoning would be solved if hitreg worked as intended
