"For each point of downed penalty, you start with less health the next time you go down."  Sounds vaguely familiar to me...

Plus this:
"Every time a character is defeated (after being downed and failing to rally) one piece of armor gets damaged. Once all armor pieces are damaged, they will break, and the character will have to repair or replace it."

So you have less die easier & have less armor..... um yeah, no DP Stick Out Tongue

I thought that too, but i tried it out in game, you don't actually get that till after you start breaking armors..... you get a message that will pop up when you fail to rally.

P.S.- it's only if you continuously fall, then rally, then fall, then rally....

Each time a character gets downed, that character accumulates one point of downed penalty. For each point, 25% will be removed from the starting consciousness bar the next time that character gets downed. I also noticed in game that when I am downed it's usually a bad situation and once I rally I am easily downed again before I have a chance to heal or run.

Every time a character is defeated (after being downed and failing to rally) one piece of armor gets damaged. Once all armor pieces are damaged, they will break. Once armor breaks it is unusable & you receive no benefit from it. They don't specify if damaged armor provides less protection or not.

It's an improvement over GW1 but not no DP. I am just being a sticklerMuahahahahaha! anyway

On the + side it will keep people from getting thru areas by just being to stuborn & racking up deaths.

Maybe mine was just in Beta, but i only got the "DP" after I died a few times in the higher than my level areas. I got trampled under in one area, and got killed repeatedly, it gave me an onscreen anouncement that I would have less hp to rally with. After i respawned, my HP was ok though.

Yes, it is just your HP to rally, but still amounts to less chance to rally. and if you don't die for a minute it goes away.... just complaining, or pointing it out.

I just thought of something, this gives a new use for crafted armor, you can wear it & then just toss it when id is broken, and don your good armor.
