ok so i had a idea what if for a match people could set the number of lifes,  that will determine how long a match  can be and make the game more interesting.

however to avoid unfairness everone will start with the same number of lives.

imagine trying a long race to see who would win.

{edit im talking about changing the life number not the health}

ok not infinity because that could make it impossible to win

Not necessarily. If you could edit life numbers, even to infinity, races could be won once the first bot has hit all the nodes.

1-7 works for me, you coul have interesting team battles with 1 health bar.

A setting on lives would work too, if everyone has one life, game ends faster and people do their best.

Seems like tese are win-win situations

<EDIT>

Not to mention i could create new game modes. Imagine a Juggernaut game mode where one player is selected at random (or however you like) and he has  6 lives over the usual 3 and 7 health bars, and everyone else is working to destroy that one bot.
(This would haveto include the use of teams, which idon't think exist on RS yet)

Hi,
from my tests I think 3 lives and 5 energy bars is the right balance to avoid too long or too quick games, so we can't go too far from those numbers imho.
But I'm open to enable some slightly variation if needed.

Why not be added like a button that says "Sudden Death"?
Like these buttons of ON/OFF blast. When starting the game you have 1 life with 1 energy. Because is Sudden!
