As ever we’re looking at game balance and one thing that never comes up in conversation much here is around fighter ageing.
This is probably because it’s in the game but not made apparent in a fighter’s attributes. We apply (negative) modifications on a fighter’s age and record prior to a fight but they do not actually ever get shown or indicated in a fighter’s attributes.
We are looking at showing the decline in attributes by age (as we do when there is a defeat) and generally beefing up fighter retirements (also to include retiring on a win). The game is far too lenient on older fighters and we want to make it more realistic.
As ever we love to hear the discussion or any thoughts players may have.
