Hey HAARP, would you try running last man standing on the Gamma server? The particular kind of LMS I'd like to see is the one 7th WD ran - fixed starting money, no c-bill earning, a change of price point every few rounds and a change of map after every few price points. For example:
5 x SA_Glory at 80k
5 x SA_Glory at 200k
5 x SA_Glory at 100k
5 x SA_Forsaken at 49k
5 x SA_Forasken at 140k
5 x SA_Forsaken at 80k
and so on...
I really loved 7th WD's LMS server when I was a newbie because it allowed me to try out and practice in assets I couldn't yet afford regularly in TC or TSA games. The best part of it is that I could do that without any negative consequences towards my team - a destroyed Atlas is 11 tickets and a load of c-bills to the enemy, which sets your team back a lot. That is not what you want your teammates to be doing. LMS is ideal for newbies to check out, for example, whether they prefer Mauler C or E. That's not an easy thing to find out if you can only afford one of those per hour-long TC game.
I don't need LMS to learn variants anymore, but I view it as a much fairer alternative to SA. The mode is defensive, perhaps more realistic, unlike the mindless race to deal damage in SA. It's also forgiving to late joiners - every round starts on equal footing and there's no steamroll effect if someone farms newbies.
It is true that LMS can be exploited by waiting in the hangar until everyone there's just two of you, but that can be fixed with kicks and bans just like any other kind of game ruining.
