B-Duel

The long-awaited updated version of Duel Item Patch is here. Rebranded as B-Duel, this modification offers a host of improvements to Duel. Each change can be toggled via a server CVar, and they each work independently from one another! Each toggle has a default, but these gameplay modifications can be combined to your liking.

At a glance, the following features are offered in B-Duel (listed along with their accompanying CVar and its default):
- Item Removals and Replacements (duel_usereplacements = true). Items that have overcentralizing/degenerate effects in Duel are removed, and a few are replaced with alternative utility items!
- Always-On Energy Balancer (duel_usebalancer = true). Players have the Energy Balancer equipped at all times, benefitting from its ammo efficiency without needing to pick it up!
- Stock Duel (duel_usestocks = true). Players must reduce their opponent's stocks (or lives) to 0 to win! Falling in pits no longer puts victory further from reach, but it does put the opponent closer!
- Mobile Duel (duel_usemobile = false). Mobility items like Item-1 and Rush Coil are automatically given to players, and replenished when either player dies!

Let's get into some details!

Mentioned that this was a cool idea when KD and I were brainstorming about it, but I think it's worth reiterating. Base Zandronum gamemodes gave us some pretty janky rules to get used to, but this mod amends those to give a more engaging experience and I think that's super commendable. Hope to see it become a standard for all duel servers.

Now we just gotta see B-TLMS make its awaited return
