  • Poll: Weapon Picking Preference

    Greetings Pocket Tanks Fans!

    As you may know if you read our blogs, our Facebook, or anything else (and if you don't, do!) we're doing some pretty big things with Pocket Tanks. Right now we're working on creating a way for people to play against one another online. And there was much rejoicing.

    There's some hitches. One of them is the Weapon Shop mechanic, which is one of the unique things about Pocket Tanks, but could be a hassle for us to implement.

    So we need to know more about how our fans actually choose their weapons, so we can decide what's the best way to go forward.

    Also, I've posted this same poll on Facebook. If you're a Face...booker, then please answer the poll THERE as well.

    Brian, I will tell you how I play with a friend on the same computer (hotseat): first we argue `` rock paper scissors'' to see who will be the first player, then we have three types of weapon picking.
    1) Each player takes the weapon itself
    2) Each player chooses a weapon to another player! a very fun way
    3) Random

    When i play via Hamachi i only use Random, because it's not fair when one person always plays first, he always takes the greatest weapon. that's why for the online mode is more suitable randomness. So for ONLINE mode i vote RANDOM.

      Usually my friends and I settle for letting the random option decide, but every once in a blue moon we decide to pick our weapons manually.

        I agree with Volan. While playing through online, first player always have the advantage of choosing the best weapon. So we always go for random weapons.

        Volan thanks for sharing this

          I personally just hit random. Picks weapons somewhat fairly as far as i know. Except when Fireworks come up. Always grab that weapon. Massive points right there.

            most of the time I pick each weapon. sometimes if there is a poor selection at the end, I'll hit random. Also, it probably isn't a good idea to close polls on a forum where many users (like myself) visit infrequently.

              Poll was closed because the question was asked in order to get a feel for player behavior, so that we could make a design decision. That decision has been made.
