I think most of you know the problem in Pro Mode:
If you have a bad position, you will die.

Here can you post some ideas, that would fix the problem.

Usually it's played where hedges can walk or transport is enabled. So getting a better position isn't a big deal.

Part of the fun is working with the positions you're given.

Seems only way to solve the height problem is some way of climbing.
Shotgun can help sometimes, but is slow and not always possible.

* girder
* teleport
* ropes

Seem to be the only solutions (apart from positioning hogs which is not possible right now and not that practical most of the time anyway)

Hm. or maybe a low gravity. But that only helps sometimes, even with grenade jumps, and doing a low gravity grenade jump would require insane timing of a bouncing grenade.

2 ropes would be nice in my opinion. It's much more difficult than teleport, especially if there's 15 sec per turn.

To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

I think a special kind of rope that didn't allow your hog to push another around or drop bombs while holding to it would be a nice addiction for special modes like these.

1 changing (don't know the english name ...). With that, at the begining you can protect your hogs who are near of the water.

+

1 rope. At the sudden death you can go on top of the map. Like that you're not forced to put your own hog in the water cause he's useless.

+

1 teleport. For the same reasons. Teleport can be use strategicaly moreover.

So :

Bazooka - Illimited
Grenade - Illimited
Mortar - Illimited
Changing - 1
Rope - 1
Teleport - 1

Sorry for my bad english (i'm french). I hope that you understood.

"Ropes" and "Pro Mode" should not be in the same sentence IMO.
Teleport could work...
