    Suggestion name: Kit Expiration Change.

    What gamemode is it for: Search and Destroy.

    What does your suggestion do: Changes the idea of purchasable Kits expiring. To, The higher your donation rank. The less the initial purchase of the kit would be. However in order to balance this out a little, Kits might cost more then the normal 10000 Credits, For some Ranks/No Ranks.

    Pros of your suggestion: Gives everyone (Excluding Mayhem+) A chance to permanently purchase their favorite Class/Kit. Also gives non Mayhem+ players peace of mind, Knowing that their hard work will pay off, Perhaps raising player count.

    Cons of your suggestion: Slightly lowers the overall value of Mayhem+, And amount of time people might spend on Search and Destroy. Seeing as with this add-on. You could "own" all the kits without them ever expiring.

    Example of how it could look in game: You would click to purchase a kit like Boomerang. And if you had no donation rank. It would cost something like 20000 Credits. If you had Spaz. It would cost 17500 Credits. Crazy would cost 15000 Credits. And Maniac would cost 12500. I think you get the idea. ;)

    Other information: It's pretty obvious that Search and Destroy isn't the most "Popular" Game-mode on the server. But it sure as hell is fun. But with the constant flux in player count, And kits expiration dates never changing. It can be really hard for a normal players to actually keep and upgrade kits that are not the normal ones. Without completely committing themselves to Search and Destroy whenever there's enough players for it to actually start. With this change. It would make it so no matter the player count or change in the person playing's schedule. If they put in the hard work. They could keep and upgrade the kits they want. Along with keeping a reason for people who play SND to buy ranks, (Disreguarding what may come up in the future :D) As all kits would cost much less depending on the Rank.

    So, summarized in a few words, your suggestion is to buy kits rather than unlocking them for a while?

    I do agree with this, I love the gamemode, but as you said low player count. This might do alittle bit, I hate that you have to buy the kit again and again. It's a pain in the ass if you want to save the credits for other stuff.

    I think you should be able to buy the kit for a month AND buy the kit permanently. Obviously buying it for a month would cost less so you can try it out. Great idea though, commander box, if this gets added in then probably more people would play. It is very fun and it is annoying that next to nobody ever plays it.

    My original idea was actually to make it so you could purchase like a trial for the kit for a week for something like 2000 credits. And if you wanted to buy it, It would cost the normal price of 10000 credits or so.

    But using the method I showed in my suggestion means that Donation ranked users get something out of SND as well. If we just made it 10000 to purchase and 2000 to try it out. There's not really any in between that donators and take advantage of. Thus lowering the value of ALL donation ranks. Not just a small change to Mayhem+.

    Yeah that's pretty much it. All players and Donators but Mayhem+ will benefit from this change in my opinion.

    One of the issues is that when you get to the higher levels of upgrading a kit, You have to have around 25k and 50k credits. But you always have to save around 10k credits extra in-case the time limit runs out and you want to keep playing the kit.

    I like this. It seems so pointless to spend a few months or so worth in credits only to have the kit taken away.
