Games where all players have the same gear

I propose having games where everyone who plays that round/world - would have the same gear. So new players without said gear can use as a trial - and older more experienced players can play other players in a more fair environment.
 
We can do this now if the players involved have the same gear, but I think it would be fun for newer players to be able to match up against pros in an even playing field...
 
What say ye?
 
Cheers,
TheGoodGuy

This could be a game mode...
 
I'd make a game where you can only have a grapple and rocket launcher (you have to have a second weapon). (mm)

I truthfully hate the current upgrade/equipment system as for what it does to new players, making them and their stock level 1 gear useless against the infamous strategies designed to counter their exact loadout, which they don't have the experience and the equipment options to counter (the level 1 plasma blaster isn't nearly as good anti-sniper tool as the level 20 version, and shock armor's sole purpose seems to be to help n00b snipers). Sadly, we are now so dependent on the store system there is no turning back now. So TheGoodGuy's suggestion is the best solution so far.
 
Now, you know what this reminds me of? Call of Duty. No really, it does. Let me explain:
When you first start off in multiplayer you get 3-5 classes with preset equipment to choose from, each with decked out gear. When your reach a certain level you gain the ability to use your own gear, though you can still use the default classes if you want to while you earn better gear. So if we were to add the option for same equipment across all players, you would be allowing new players to use better equipment while they earn credits to upgrade their own.
 
Oh, and how about we use this to make some game modes we really want but wouldn't really make practical sense when everyone has their own equipment? Stuff such as all flamethrowers, lots of explosives, rapid-fire weapons only, and of course GRAPPLES FOR EVERYONE WOO!

Facepalm
_________________________________________________________________________________________
 
A facepalm is a human reaction to obvious or ironic statements or actions, such as when Tropa can't figure out what is going on. It consists of covering your eyes with the palm of one of your hands (unless it is a double facepalm, where both hands cover the eyes). The reaction also can be used wheAH MY LEGS!

On-topic: So will be implemented as a game mode? If so, when?
 
Everything else:
 
TROPAFLIGHT2 STILL doesn't get it... =)
 
 
@FCA:
 
Faceplant

 
A faceplant is when a human falls down face first and plants their face, such as when FCA faceplants into nyan cat poop (rainbows), not to forget the time he faceplanted into ICE CREAMY N CAKE N CAKE, ICE CREAMY N CAKE N CAKE, ICE CREAMY N CAKE N CAKE, ICE CREAMY N CAKE N CAKE, ICE CREAM N CAKE, DO THE ICE CREAM N CAKE, ICE CREAM N CAKE, DO THE ICE CREAM N CAKE...

by it being a game mode, he coudl choose whether to join such a game or not... but i may be failing to see your perspective.. why would it refrain a player to play with his/her friends  ?

People seem to think you would be required to own the equipment first. I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to use a weapon you don't own as long as the game is kept fair.
