Re-iterating - plan for comp 99 is V3.2. A savefile with good monster memory and disconnected stairs would be nice. We haven't had a V rogue for a while (last one was a kobold 2 years ago).

That's not how competitions work. If you let people ride scooters in a foot race, then the race becomes about the person willing to buy the fastest scooter. If most of us want to race on foot (or play without stair scumming) then we have to have a rule that there are no scooters/connected stairs.

Just give it up, DOS350. You're not going to convince everyone to turn the competition into a fight over who can abuse stairs the most effectively. And make no mistake, that is precisely what turning on connected stairs would do.

One of the great things about *bands is the way you can make it harder or easier for yourself - so more experienced players can choose harder race/class combinations, or reduce reliance on tactics like anti-summoning corridors and stairscumming. It's not that there's anything wrong with stairscumming - it's just that most people who have played for a while don't find it very interesting.

So having a comp with connected stairs would reward people for playing in a less interesting (to them, for the most part) way. It would be like having a cycle race where it was an advantage to use training wheels, or a writing competition where it helped to write incomprehensibly ... oh, wait ...

V 3.2 and RePos 6.3, the current comp, are almost identical. Maybe try something a little different and then come back to V?

I already have a V3.2 savefile, and I think for a major new version of V it's worth having a few comps anyway.

Next one after will likely be NPP 0.5.1, and then there may even be a new FA release...

What would you say if the Olympics decided to allow marathon runners to use bicycles if they wanted to? Sure there might be some happy cyclists, but wouldn't you think that most of the runners would be pretty upset that they'd have to use a bicycle to compete properly? After all, there's no way that a runner on foot could keep up with a cyclist.
