    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. 

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

    This one is for Steven:

    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.

    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?

    Which race do various team members prefer?

    I'm not here to complete my forum PVP dailies.

    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!

    the official vote for the 5th chapter will be on the official forum (soon)

    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.

    tbh I don't have such kind of feelings about the whole thing - guess it's my technical background and all the logical thinking and stuff :) The choice for the BT was more inspired by their symbols, names and looks than anything else. Also they remind me a lot of middle age templars :)

    i think this is the main aspect for BT fans to be fan of BT ^^

    black and cool cross symbols.

    well color will be 1 reason why i will see no salamanders ingame for a long time :( they look to much like dark angels T.T

    But the Templars play so differently then standard matines though. The Black Tide, 20 man crusader squads steamrolling over the table is a sight to behold. They are as angry as the Angry Marines and as Manly as the Manly Marines, and deserve their own 'dex.

    And Savij, the Dark Angels and Salamanders are completely diifferent, even in armor scheme colors. Dark Angels use a very dark green, nearly black color scheme for their armor. Salamanders use lots of brighter green and fiery colors. Also, Dark Angels loooooove their robes.

    lol angry marines haven't heard that in a while :)  

    Hey aren't the BTs, that  famously psyker and Xenos hating bunch able to form alliances with Eldar as of the 6th Edition, you know that famously psychic bunch of Xenos?

    Hmmm breaking their sworn oaths to side with a bunch of pansy spess elfs ... Maybe the BTs are being "infiltrated" by the Pretty Marines and will only "partner up" with pretty effeminate races.

    All joking aside -  interesting choice of chapter there Patrick, I'm guessing that this was a nod to the name of the Black Templar's Citadel Flagship, the battle barge ' Eternal Crusader'  http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Eternal_Crusader#.Uh0dbRusiqc  :)>
