20070527 Bonus XP for completely demolishing barricades

Suggestion description
Bringing down a barricade all the way to zero is quite an exhausting task for a zombie. Sometimes I've brought an entire barricade down only to run out of action points or find that the doors are closed. And I get 1 measly XP for my trouble. There should be some kind of XP bonus for completely demolishing a barricade. After all, zombies get bonus points for destroying generators and killing survivors. I think a 5 XP bonus would be good. It's the same amount of XP a zombie gets for destroying a generator. Also, a demolition bonus would encourage zombies to bring down barricades with their own hands, and rely less on crowbar wielding PKers or Zombie Spies.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep - My suggestion. -- Mordac the Refuser 03:23, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  2. Keep - Yeah, I'll buy that. --The Hierophant 02:45, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  3. Keep - Seems like it could be a good idea. --Saluton 04:43, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  4. Keep - seems like a nice zombie boost--'BPTmz 05:24, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  5. Keep - a small change.--Vista +1 14:59, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  6. Keep - I like it. One of the reasons I don't play zombies too often is cause of the constant de-barricading for no real gain. How many times have you cracked a 'cade, to find there was no one in there? Enough to want this change to come through, I'll tell you that.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 16:11, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  7. Keep - I would have voted kill, but 5 XP is a sufficient bonus, not too big or too small. --ZombieSlay3rSig.pngT 16:49, 29 May 2007 (BST)
  8. Keep - Good enough to get a keep from me! --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 13:31, 31 May 2007 (BST)
  9. Keep - Seems like a nice little boost to barricade smashing --Nikitis 23:49, 2 June 2007 (BST)
  10. Keep - Oh damn, humans spam the game with cades and zombies get screwed. The current zombie xp for cades is a joke. --karek 04:44, 6 June 2007 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - Lots of building's barricades will be Loosely Barricaded or worse because of this. Not only that, Survivors won't get anything good from it. Makes the game a bit unbalanced and I think there is a dupe somewhere... --JudeMaverick W! TJ! Talk Zzz... P! 03:00, 27 May 2007 (BST)
    Moved the discussion to the talkpage --Vista +1 14:57, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  2. Kill - Not needed. Maxed out claws are already more efficient at tearing down barricades than crowbars or maxed fire axes. (As a firefighter, I sometimes wait until I'm dead to maintain entry points because it's easier to do as a zombie.) --Uncle Bill 04:48, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  3. Kill - not needed. you already have XP for knocking down cades. By knocking last piece you benefit by having access to tasty harmanz --Duke GarlandTLCD SSZ 09:13, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  4. Kill - I swear I already voted kill on this before. You get your XP bonus when you attack the tasty harmanbargarz inside the building. The door will ALWAYS be closed (barricading closes it automatically, churches and junkyards have no doors) so buy MoL. Zombies don't need or even want human help destroying barricades; with just two skills (Vigor Mortis and Death Grip) they do it as well as any character can do it.
    Also, I'd worry about the potential abuse of intentional "barricade yo-yoing"; zombie destroys barricade, waits for it to be re-built to loosely, destroys it again, etc. In certain cases, this would result in faster XP gain than actually attacking the survivors inside. --Seb_Wiers VeM 15:50, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  5. Kill Barricading is the defence for survivors. Zombies gain xp for tearing them down, and for killing whatever is inside. Even if there's no one inside, tearing down 'cades is what zombies are supposed to do in the first place. - BzAli 22:38, 27 May 2007 (BST)
  6. Kill Nah, zombies get XP from knocknig down barricades now. We don't need this. --Secruss 04:05, 28 May 2007 (BST)
  7. Kill - Zombies get plenty of XP from breaking down barricades as is. --Sonofagun18 05:53, 28 May 2007 (BST)
  8. Kill - Besides the possible zerg abuse, back in the old days suggesting cade smashing to grant XP for zombies was a sin. Be happy that you actually get that XP. --Matthew Fahrenheit YRCT+1 00:51, 2 June 2007 (BST)
  9. Kill - XP is now earned for just lowered 'cades, so this is not needed, and OTT. armareum 09:47, 8 June 2007 (BST)
