    For Flood, you die pretty quick when you are in water. Sometimes you get glitched through your boat and it's hard to get back on it. Maybe we can add a scuba tank that you can buy that will keep you alive a little longer, just if you need to get back on your boat when you can't or to have more time to destroy other boats.

    Ruins the purpose of flood though, just remember piranhas are biting the shit out of you.

    True, but what about a life raft that you can spawn in to keep you alive a little longer, not a a lot of health. Just saying because sometimes your boat will glitch and fly off and you can't get back on it.

    True, but we should still have some kind of way to save yourself and keep you alive just a little bit longer, like a life raft that you can deploy when you are about to die.

    But backup boats cost extra and you could lose a lot of money.

    And also the backup boat probably isn't going to keep you alive that long.

    I mean its simple to avoid dying, stay away from water as long as you can or quickly get up to a boat avali.

    Ok, so longer lifetime, you have a good point there, but with the wrong idea like a raft, because backup boats are a thing. So instead, we should have some sort of item that can increase your HP or refill it, like a medkit :)
    I believe that would be a great addition to the flood server

    But i think the med kit would work better, because i didn't know that there where piranhas

    My idea is to make it so that you take no damage when the water is filling the map. Of course, this opens the opportunity for all the people without boats to be a nuisance once the round starts, but I believe the way to deal with these people is to make it so the people who do not have a boat and are not in a team are instantly killed when the battle phase starts. Making a team just to be a nuisance without a boat in the beginning of battle phase should not be allowed in the rules.

    That sounds like a splendid idea! Thank you for elaborating and contributing with your thoughts! Besides, I'm pretty sure their already working on a mini game, or something along the lines of that, that you can play while you're dead waiting for the next round to start.

    Ok listen MABY there should be something that you can BUY that will give you a random amount of health every round when you are about to die. EXAMPLE:you are at 20 health you are about to die but you bought the health weapon if you click on the health gun it gives you a random amount of health. Rather then having some sort of raft. Cause a raft is basicly a back up boat that you should have made separated from your main boat

    You should make a new thread about this, it is a great idea and I don't feel like making another thread about it because it's your idea. This thread was about the "longer life" situation and your idea is about something else, and I feel it will not get fully recognized unless you post it in a different thread ;3

    This means people can spawn in one prop and then para a large boat or something.

    Although they could spawn in a cheap prop and do that, it would be better then them spending nothing and being able to do it.
