    Haha, almost :)

    I don't know all people here yet, being quite new myself to Behaviour, but for sure:

    1. French (native language of most employees here)

    2. English (within the Online Studio the most spoken one)

    3. all languages spoken by foreigner employees like me, e.g. German, Hungarian, Norwegian, Chinese ...

    Dear Crusader, I LOVE YOU!!!

    Seriously, you fuel both the team and I with your love and passion. I never dreamed that my philosophy of no firewall between devs and fans would be such a motivator for us. I know its a double edge swords and that with this comes a huge responsability: Making the game YOU want.

    Thank you!!

    1. In thinking of super units. In Star Wars Battlefront they allowed super units to appear...Yoda/Darth Vader/Luke on a random roll for a random player to use. In this way the "super units" could appear and change a battle. For example, A higher chance for a warboss or a SM Captain to appear for the losing side. In this way it would be lore friendly, help out the losing side, and could be introduced as just a chance to happen. It would be controllable by the losing faction, by a player,  for say 30 seconds but give buffs and or debuffs on the field. This, more or les,s, is what happens in Left for Dead 2 as well with the super strong gorilla sized zombie.

    2. Even if I never can be a warboss or some other super unit i would still LOVE to see them in the game as some sort of call in NPC. I would get really immersed if a NPC warboss came in and started stomping around and giving buffs and throwing SM/Eldar/Chaos around.

    Anyhow those games were sand boxed scenarios. With such an open world im not sure if this could be implemented but we can see from other games that in certain situations its possible

    So when will you guys have that election for the 5th chapter? There is a thread somewhere where they had the Black Templars as the chapter with the highest poll, been looking for the answer all over the internet.
  • freakishbeanfreakishbean Member UncommonPosts: 176

    Yeah that was my thread. I'm a diehard Templar fan... I cried inside when I found out they were being rolled into the new Space Marine codex...

    That reminds me. 

    Will Deathwatch characters be available?

  • DecisiveRaindropDecisiveRaindrop Member Posts: 17

    Yeah, Hellsreach peaked my interest with the Black Templars and made them #1 chapter in my book, I even voted for them :D But my concern is that both Black Templars and Space Wolves both have a heavy focus on melee combat that it will be a very similar play style. I just wonder how you guys will handle it IF the BT is the winner.

     

    Also, since there is cover mechanics, will the game be like Space Marine where spacemarines and chaos have no cover mechanics and instead utilize their heavy armor? With the squishy orks and eldar must use cover to be able to survive the EMPRAH's wrath in the form of holy bolter fire? It would also go with Space Marine ideology that cover is for the weak.

    In both Space Wolf Omnibus books I read, they refer to cover quite a bit.  Utilizing cover is not cowardice, it is good tactics and sense.

    My vote would be for the Raven Guard to be added.  I love their play style, hit and run, unconventional warfare and all that.  Not a very popular chapter, I get it, but I think the Ravens would be good synergy with the Space Wolves.  You still have the issue of both chapters preferring melee techniques, but I think the styles differ enough to make it interesting. 

     

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    In order to be insulted, I must first value your opinion.

     But what is the point of cover if the weapons can puncture power armor?

    What can you tell us about some of the environments in the game? Anything descriptive you can share? Landmarks?

    Another question is, how big will individual ships be, and how far will the customization options go? Will it cost additional money  or will most of the items be unlocked like in Space Marine? It will also add some diversity to the FTPers, as well as a thing to strive for, so they just don't all look like a horde of 400 orks with the same patched armor.
  • DecisiveRaindropDecisiveRaindrop Member Posts: 17
    Another thing puzzling me is how you guys will explain the respawn of a character in a lore aspect. But how will you explain when an individual character dies and respawns in just a few moments in the lore aspect?

    We need to stretch the Lore there
    The only lore friendly way would be permadeath but who wants to create a new char every time he dies?

    Having no1 dieing would be lorebreaking.(get wounded not killed)
    So we should just go the easy way and let all dead respawn

    Its the most playerfriendly way!

    they want to invent a coversystem which works for all factions

    and marines do use cover! wasting the resources of the holy emperor is heresy!

    for example the iron warriors (yes they are CSM but still marines): they are best at defense, building huge fortresses. are they standing in front this mighty walls cause they armor protects them from everything?

    no they use the cover of the fortress to win the siegewar! same goes for spacemarines, if there is cover they will use it. everything else would be heresy

    haha, i would love to give a date for this, but all I can say right now is be patient. We will make sure there will be a vote for this and we will make sure everyone will be asked - that said, best to sign up on our homepage to get the infos for that ;)

    you can expect to have some unlocks and some stuff to be bought - since customisation is something that won't effect the gameplay or winning/losing chances, it is something where monitization can be applied very easy. About size it's a bit hard to tell at this point - but according to lore is a very good hint ;)

    first of all - not sure yet if you will just respawn 5 sec later and stuff - there might be some cooldowns, there might be cloning facilities or something - this is NOT decided yet. We will try to explain it, but from what i remember there is a few ideas, but nothing set in stone yet.
