For example the cash value could escalate as follows: 100, 120, 150, 190, 240, 300.
It would certainly cause more action and diminish the possibility of stagnation. (like increasing blinds in Poker)
The increase at 100 cash value, is probably 'about' right (perhaps it would need to be a little higher to placate some); generally this is where the game reaches the point of no return. Where the kill is not worth the return gained by a cash and all players are dug-in for a stalemate game; locked in prayer for an opponents 3 day loss of Internet, Meteor-strike or death of a dear family pet.
i agree with the 100 cash value as a start and i especially agree with the non-linear increase.
or perhaps an even steeper increase
etc. this would definitelly put an end to stalemates in escalating games
and for anybody that thinks stalemates in escalating is impossible look at Game 1432626
. it's horrible
