    Default ‘Large Jackpot’ and a ‘Mini Jackpot’

    One suggestion I have is that it might be cool to have two escape pods, where one of the pods is for a larger jackpot (takes longer to escape), and a second pod for a mini jackpot (shorter escape time).

    Basically, the mini jackpot would increase in value every, say, seventh kill. This is to make it a little bit easier for less-skilled / lower-tier players to escape if there’s an overwhelming amount of T16’s. Even with only 4-5 real players, escaping can be extremely overwhelming since everyone crowds the pod. And, if anything, I think it adds an extra element of strategy.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like it may add unnecessary complexity? One of my favorite things is sniping a jackpot with my low level player. Make an armor / health/ leech build and take that cash away from the big boys!

    I definitely don't disagree with that
