20130105 Increased Initial Repair Cost

Suggestion description
There have been a few suggestions about tweaking the ruin mechanics to make them harsher. Most of them go off tangents and add baroque frills like chances to fail repairing, or a requirement to repair them 1AP at a time.
Personally, I am person of simple solutions, so my suggestion is very straightforward:

The base cost for repairing ruins is increased to 6AP (instead of 1AP).

What this does is to move the break-even point from the zombie POV. A ruin would immediately break even for zombies, and result in an AP net gain for every day that passes since.

This would make meat-shielding ruins a much more profitable short- to mid-term endeavour, as there is a net gain much quicker. On the plus side for survivors, there will be suicide repairs to brag about unheard of but under the influence of drugs.

  8. Keep - I've often thought it's silly that barricade strafing can be so extremely effective. This'll help to limit survivors a bit, without nerfing them to the point that the tactic is worthless. Better balance than what we have, essentially. Aichon 00:02, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
  9. Keep - Make the cost 5 AP, just so it's a nice, round number. --AORDMOPRI ! T 14:40, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill If a zombie wants to breakeven on AP they can always hang around the buildings they ruin. Supereviloverlord 10:50, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
    Yes, they can, as you said. But the question isn't "can they?", the question is "should they have to?", and most of us seem to think that it makes no sense for them to have to. Aichon 15:46, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
