Hello everyone, i am new to this forum and i would like to present some cool and innovative features that have come to my mind. But these are not just my opinion of what should be in the game, as many stuff that i am about to mention have been told by others several times on other places, so this is recollection of those and some of mine on what should be in the game.
As i am fan of Warhammer 40k games and lore i have come on this forum because developers of WH40k EC ,and especially Miguel Caron, the studio head of Behaviour Interactive has told numbers of time, that there will be no fire wall in between devs and fans and i would like very much even a little to contribute to the game and shape it whit the rest of the fans before the game is set in stone, as it is still early in development.
So here it is:
1.Competitive race ranking - I like that there will be Squad Leaders, Strike Force leaders and then War Council but i see a problem here and that is if someone is elected to be member of the War Council than that is Democracy and the most popular players will be on top. And i suppose there will be rivalry and someone else can steal that position if deemed more worthy by other players, but in Warhammer 40k The strongest, not the most popular will be on top (War boss,Chaos Lords) and those of intelect and tactical thinking (Marneus Calgar, he has both might and bright).So lets say elected players for war council are tactical players who deserved their place by guiding their race. Where do the best players who have skill unmatched by others go?
Solution: Make 5 top elected players Tactical Leaders who have to be at the end of horizontal progression for that position and be active and favored by the players. Voting for top players should be weakly event at specific time and make it player driven event. Candidates should be Strike Force Leaders(Guild leaders) who are running for position (every Strike Force Leader should have choice to put his name for voting or not to).Top 5 are elected and gain seat on the War Council while preserving their Strike Force Leader position(Guild Master).
What about other 5 you ask?Well other 5 seats can not be filled by election and can be obtainable only by winning massive 1v1ranked tournaments.Rules are simple as all players who are at the end of horizontal progression excluding (5 voting elected War council members) can participate.There are 2 tournaments the qualifications and main tournament. Qualifications are smaller separate tournament in which all who have applied and have qualifications(end game players) can participate in 100 separate smaller tournaments.All players who have reached end game on horizontal progression have right to participate regardless of rank in group of solo players. these 100 Qualifications tournaments can be organized in place of players mutual agreement in personal housing or on ground for example. There can be only one winner of the each qualifications and the the final 100 players participate in the main tournament in special battle arena whit all other players able to watch the matches from arena stands.Top 5 players whit least loses all become members of the War Council , and THE PLAYER WHIT 0 LOSSES (the best player ) GAIN THE TITLE OF THE Champion of the Chapter,Leader of WAAAGH of like CHAMPION OF CHAOS.....(i am just giving an example here, and yes the title is for ever, even if you loose on next tournaments). Next week you get to defend your position on the War Council in same manner as you have won it. The tournaments and elections are each week but not on the same day and have set time, who put himself for tournament but did not show up on time is disqualified.
Also when in War Council you can have unlimited use of (Terminator armor,Meganob armor) and you can equip unique gear like Iron Halo or Chapter Banner,Boss Pole (boosting your defense from range weapons by giving shield, or inspiring nearby players by giving buffs like in DoW2). This would make players competing against one another for place in War Council and worth a while and make them motivated.And yes War Council member should be more powerful then the rest of the players regarding gear and it should be same for each race thus being balanced.
So in the end there would be 5 tactical leaders of the race and 5 war leaders as part of the War Council.In total of 10.
5 Tactical leaders with for example banners who stay behind and give orders and buff players with banners on their back. When 5 War leaders are in front of the army and are the best players of the game who are feared on whole server!!!!!!!!
Last i want to say is that Tactical and War leaders of War Council should be easily recognizable one from another by title and looks so that players know who got on the war council by what means.
2.Spiked armor decorations - you can kill enemy player and take his head, and if you have spikes on your self (Chaos marines, Orks) you can put it on for all players to see who did you kill ,(ofc if enemy changes armors and helmets his head on your spike should not change as it is copy of his head load out when you chopped his head off.
This could be excellent material for dlc after launch and you could sell spikes in cash shops to put on armor,weapons or just enable us to put heads on spikes on existing armor with existing spikes for fee.But imagine if you could for example return your head if you kill the one who previously took it (only the owner of the head can take it back) ,and he looses your head from his spike....just imagine this:
WAAAAGH!!!!!!!!!!! I GOT YER HEAD FROM DERE WAR COUNCIL SPACE MURINEE!!!!ON ME SPIKEEE...YAHHAAHAAHAHAHH!!!
RETURN MY HEAD YOU XENOS FILTH!!!!! FOR THE EMPEROR I WILL STRIKE YOU DOWN!!!
WAAAAAHG!!!!!!!! YOU CANT CATCH ME SPAHSH MAHRINE ME ARMOR IZ RED, RED GOS FASTA!!!!!!!!YAHHHAHAHAAHA!!!
Infinite troll possibilities!!!!!
3.bounty on players - if you could implement this so that players can put bounty on other players and even several at the same time from different players on same opponent, and the one who finishes off player with bounty gets all the credits and money it could work well with number 2 of my ideas. :P So top strongest players and the trolls would be on the top of the list, and it would be so fun if it would be implemented as quest given by the War Council to kill certain player + player giving adding requisition points for example on someone hit list to increase the bounty.
That is all for now pls tell me what do you ppl think? You too Miguel if you can and if this can be implemented in WH40k EC in some way?
Sorry for the dreadful English.....
