I can understand why mic battery is a thing. It's to avoid mic spammers (Even though there's already a mute feature.) But I feel like if you actively play on a server, mic battery shouldn't bug you as much. I am a very social person, and mic battery often cuts me off when I'm trying to have a conversation. My suggestion is to use the playtime a player has, and make milestones which add more mic battery. At a certain point even give unlimited mic battery to the player. Example: Player X reaches 50 hours on the server, therefore Player X's mic batter increases by 1.5x. Player Y just reached 100 hours, so their mic battery increases by 2x. Player Z reaches 250 hours, so they get unlimited mic battery. I also don't see the point in having to donate to have more mic battery. In fact, I feel if somebody donates any money they should get unlimited mic battery. Mic battery shouldn't be just increased for Supporter, VIP, Bronze, and Silver, it should be unlimited. Response to Comments: A lot of people have been commented on the post, trying to explain why mic battery shouldn't be improved. You may think it's not an improvement, but in what way? What will this little change that won't even effect trolls do? If this suggestion is implemented, it will positively effect long time players. New players might be driven away by mic battery, especially seeing that they have to PAY to get rid of it. And it won't even fully get rid of it, the only way to get completely rid of mic battery is to pay monthly. Either way, mic battery isn't even that good at stopping mic spammers. ______________________________________ "No mic battery = bad stories." - Staff can deal with it or you just mute them. "You already have infinite mic battery when you're dead. I prefer keeping my alive voice chat clean when I'm playing TTT." - Not in Deathrun. And this doesn't change anything either way. "just deal with it, its a reason for people to donate." - Maybe, but giving players incentive to be more active is better. "its only for chit chatting imo" - I don't believe mic chat is only for chit chatting, but that's what I mainly use it for. Mic battery interrupts me. "deathrun needs mic battery. Otherwise it would be mic spam hell." - The suggestion isn't to remove mic battery, it's to improve it. Deathrun Staff can deal with them, or you can mute them. "there's plenty of toxic players who have played pretty long who would jump at the ability to abuse this privilege." - If there's staff, the toxic players can be dealt with. No staff, they can be muted or reported on the forums.
