Hmm, I meant to type elevator instead of escalator, but since I'm stuck with the typo...
Instead of breaking it, I'd MacGyver the escalators to all run downhill.

this would be one big deathmatch game of CS:L(ion)

animals are scared of fire, so why not go to sears and get some wd-40 or something flammable and make a flame thrower

I stated that the lions are not hungry for anything but human which was/is a stretch. I didn't say that it wasn't possible to try and kill one of the lions and the hope that the other lions eat the dead lion as opposed to you, now did I? ;)

Edit: to clarify: all of the lions are spawned at the same time that you are. They are in random locations around the mall.

I'd go to a hunting store....get like that urine or whatever, put it in a super soaker and spray them all with it. That would be interesting to see.

Then yea, we're all going to go into the elevator and climb on top of it through the escape hatch. Free million $. And half of ATOT is still going to be there the next day for the doorless dressing rooms.

The first thing I would do (if a lion wasn't after me right away) would be to get to the closest perfume/smelly sh!t store and take as much as possible with me. Then it would be time to find some place high I could climb to.

I wonder if it would be possible to "sent barricade" yourself somewhere? (if the lions never see you in the first place)

The people who think they could ward off even 1 lion with a chainsaw are morons....much less if 2 or 3 showed up. If you could get up high somewhere you'd be ok, but you'd have to get there before the lionesses caught you.

isn't the question "would you" as oppsed to "how would you"?

To answer the former, who in their right mind would risk what is likely a 90% + chance of very painful death for $1 million. As someone already pointed out, when you control for risk of death, the $1 million is really only worth about $100.

It doesn't matter how much of a "head start" you have because a lion could still spawn randomly right next to you, even if you're up a rafter, in an elevator shaft, etc.

That's what makes this a lose-lose situation. If there was a guarantee that the lions would all be spawned on the ground then it would be a different story.

Nope, no head start. I've edited the OP to say that all of the lions are spawned at the same time you are, all of the lions being in random locations. So one lion could spawn right next to you, or they could all spawn in the air ducts. There's just no way to know.

If the mall was made by EA, then chances are good that 3 of the lions would never be able to load, 4 would be randomly dropped once they spawn, and two would be immediately kicked by punkbuster... so assuming you paid $75 to download all the necessary updates, you'd only be up against one lion... for 5 minutes before EA released another patch.

with all the talk of spawning, then isn't it a possibility a lion could end up spawned with me in its belly?
