Lately, many people have been talking about the possibility of a new ironman mode, with the main ideas being a lower experience Ironman (without having to be an HCIM) and also perhaps a "Duo-ironman" functionality to be able to have a partner for your account.
We already have many game modes, so we won't be adding two entirely separate game modes at once. On top of that, if we simply add Elite ironman with a lower experience rate and no other differences, it isn't all that different since you can play HCIM with only the death restriction (not too difficult to work around). So with that in mind, we'd like to provide some other new aspects to this game mode, with these being the possible ideas:
- An even lower experience rate, for those who want more of a challenge (around 3x)
- The possibility of having a partner (duo/partner mode), which will be optional
- Disallowing usage of Vote books and/or other experience boosts (eg. Well of goodwill)
The name "Elite ironman" is not yet set in stone, and it may end up being "Duo Ironman" or even something entirely different depending on how the community feels about it. We'd love to hear your opinion on this game mode, as well as any additional ideas you may have for it.
