    I think what Gridg was trying to say is that there are many vehicles of the same base. You can have 5 vehicles, just each one can be upgraded differently. Say for a Land Raider, you can have a standard land raider, or upgrade it and have it become a land raider crusader/redeemer. Have a land speeder become a tempest or transport model, have falcons become fire prisms. They can have the standard tanks be upgradable in a similar to PS2 or like DoW. This gives an additional challenge when organizing a large scale attack trying to balance your vehicles for maximum effectiveness. Each variant is specialized in different roles and have different faults, but that will help with game balancing. Just imagine seeing a dozen land raiders rolling in with different weapons burning/purging all the xeno filth, with predators and annihilators in pursuit sweeping the aliens up while the METAWL BAWKSES and razor backs offload fresh troops.

    Now what I feel would be an interesting aspect is if we are allowed to use thunderhawk gunships and rain down death as we tank shots capable of blowing up a predator :D

    Savij, do you plan on adding air vehicles to the mix? I believe the devs say they plan on adding them, but there are only a few two dedicated flyers (thunderhawk and storm eagle) , and a few land speeders that could go in the category.

    So did the designer said Space Marines are going to be their own faction?

     

    Cuz I do like that idea. I wouldn't like it myself if they mingle Imperial Guard with Space Marines (as I prefer to play Imperial Guards)

     

    I like the list that you've put out btw :)

    the factions are based on the tabletop factions and there SM and IG are 2 factions

    IG may come in a later update after launch

     

    and thanks for reading it :)

     

     

    btw where would you put a dreadnought? as Class or as Vehicle?

    i would think Class cause they cant come out, but what do you think?

    I personally am in agreement with you on that I think it should be a class.

     

    I mean even if they CAN come out (like say the pilots of Crisis Suits for Tau), it wouldn't make no sense to put it as a vehicle as there is no chance that another space marine could just jump in a pilot the thing :P

     

    However I think it should be a class which require high resources points to spawn though (or whatever system that will be devised that considers resource available to a faction/player)

    I think dreads should be a commander or guild level perk that is rare and can be summoned onto the battlefield as an overpowered NPC killing machine that is given simple orders until it is killed or runs out of an alloted amount of time.

    This allows dreads to be OP, since players will be more likely to complain about other players being OP in it, and to make them seem more rare or special.

    I think it should be a privilege class.   After the faction( or player) had completed enough to get some high standing in the game, they can be allowed to respawn as a dreadnought.   The class basically follows basic vehicle rules.

    Dreah I'm yunk, wazzit matter to you?

    sounds like it would fit into EC what you to said, maybe the faction needs to hold a specific structure to have the dreads available and then only "expirienced players" can spawn as them

    Terminator Armour, Vehicles, Dreadnaughts. All the talk and discussion here makes me realise just how tough a job the developers have!!

    Between just a few of us here in this thread we all have different views on how these should be implemented, all being good ideas that could work well.
