I’m not buying it. Self preservation is a basic instinct that a game just isn’t going to override. It’s not like kamikaze attacks where someone nominally sacrifices themselves to defend family, culture, society, religion. I’m not aware of any similar practices where people are supposedly vying hard to win the right to be killed by their own people.
