Personally, I like the current system. Not only does it incentivize you to play more carefully, it also helps out party play. So with the old system, you could carry 10 scapes but if you died without a scape, your whole party would lose the S rank. So new players or people who just couldn't afford to buy scapdolls early on would be kicked from parties because the party leader was salty about losing the S rank. 10 scapedolls is 50k, a lot of people are already complaining about not even having enough money early on to buy the clothing they want, if that's the case, why would new players spend 50k on scapedolls? The current system is nice because as long as someone in your party has a moon, they can revive you and keep the S rank.
