It's 3v1 in your favour, Enemy calls for Zellbrigen. Will you respect it?

Would I expect others to?

Glad I'm not a clanner.

Why he is only now - at the last - asking for Zellbriggen would be the only thing I want to know. Seems cowardly to me... but that's me.
His side has effectively lost. I could simply wait, or cap and not destroy him at all. Some "true warriors" would say give him a good death. I would dispatch him by any legal means at my disposal. At least there is a clear victory.
And your situation is a little odd (not making a personal remark). Just saying: Zellbriggen is a Clan term used exclusively by the Clanners. Two DCMS samurai perhaps. I am not bound by their ethical framework however. - Slay them.

Imagine if you were in the beta game right now and your team has 3 players while the enemy has 1, at this point victory is almost certain if you ganked him together or bypassed your opponent for the objective. Before you act however, the lone surviving enemy calls out for individual combat in the middle of the map, challenging you and your friends to duel one at a time.
Your enemy is a relatively good pilot and has suffered little damage. The odds are still against him but he is better off than without Zellbrigen imposed and at the very least he may inflict more damage on your team which will add to repair costs.
The rules, if you accept are as follow:
1.) 1 on 1 combat at a time only
2.) No use of indirect fire, artillery strikes, long range sniping
3.) Combat begins when both sides are ready
4.) Combat only takes place at a selected location
What will you do?
(Side note: Your enemy isn't a clanner, he has the same IS tech as you. The time line is 3049, clans haven't arrived yet but this challenge is issued in the same way Knife fights between the last 2 players in Counter-Strike are issued)
I am an honorable mercenary...
I don't kill civilians. (Note: picking up a weapon makes a you militia...)
I accept unconditional surrenders. (This leads you to line 3!)
I don't shoot the MASH full of POWs and POWs get meds at the MASH. (You still get manacles and a crappy cot though!)
I take the objective I was paid to take with a minimal amount of dinking around. (This gets my employees hurt and risks my objective.)
So no... your request for a duel would fall on deaf ears. If you want a better chance at living after your unit was downed? Surrender. Otherwise fight like a real warrior tubey. Oh and hold on to this nice blinking NARC beacon for me if you could... I have bills to pay, places to go, contracts to honor.

In a tabletop pen and paper game, sure, maybe, depends on circumstances.
In a computer game that is predicated on doing damage to get stuff to be able to do/get more stuff in the game, hell no. There's no mechanic in a video game for that kind thing anyway, so moot.

Posted 04 August 2012 - 06:48 PM
So... you WANT me to take your kills. Why?

A clanner, after whiping out 7 mechs of 2 lances, having 3 of his two stars left, would call this out for which reason? Are they both commanders, or graduated to commander of the lances/stars by default because of death and possible cowardice or stkupidity? I wouldn't accept. There is no reliable trust that the one who offers is truly in command.

If you kill everything you are not a merc ,but a mad man.
A merc fights for money ,killing if is needed but smart enought to avoid unnecessary victims ,losses of material and time ...ect.
I would fight 1 on 1 (I know its not popular ,but its me)
