8/8 FREE, PROTECTED
One of the knocks on this game is the weird compensation thing where you're essentially rewarded for getting your ass kicked. Has anyone tried simply scrapping the compensation altogether? I'd be curious to hear what effect it had on the game.
It's not that you are rewarded for getting your ass kicked. It's that the other players have incentive not to pick on one player repeatedly. If I get attacked twice in a row, I get some compensation. But the compensation is seldom makes up for what is lost in the attack.
I think compensation works great as is and see no need to remove it.
