New Feature Request » New Unit idea - Colossal Units *poll*! » Go to message
  The Impaler wrote:Its a cool idea but honestly the stats are scaled to 12 being the highest value. anything above that and you get lots of insta kills and 0 damage retaliations. Essentially i think these will only ever be damaged by units with armor penetration... also GL attack of 20 is kinda crazy. max GL defense possible is reprogrammed mecha on mountian = 12 defense, still allost a 1 hit kill haha.

I like the idea in theory but you need to follow a balance curve, and these units are completely off the current curve, we need to extrapolate past our understanding.


Ahhhhh interesting.

I did not / do not understand the stat scaling to 12. That does make sense.

I think There are ways to impact the way these units would behave without making their stats too crazy, anyway.

Either - higher base HP (thinking 12-15). Or specific rules like 'can only take 1 HP of damage per hit from enemy non colossal units' or something.

Guess there are options.

In one of my later posts I acknowledge I have no idea if stats are balaknced and state: units are designed to give a picture of what their roles would be.

At any rate. Thank you for the feedback.

Bigger question though - do you think these would impact gameplay meaningfully And positively?

Next update: cost of reweave is equal to (cost of targeted unit x 0.75). Cooldown is reduced to 4 rounds. Also, now heals targeted unit 1 HP.

This should make this ability more situational, and make it less of an auto include with a zombie pinzer

UW
Undead Race v2

Main mechanic: units can be spawned from any location next to a Necromancer that is a valid location (I.e. GH can't be on mountains, only aquatic on water tiles, and can't have two units on one tile, etc. )

Which is a serious perk, of course.

Unique race ability:
1. Decay
Decay is similar to plague, but decreases affected units DEFENSE by 1 each turn, and can not be healed by any means. (Not all units are susceptible to decay). Decay does NOT spread to adjacent units like a plague.
2. Refurbished: any time the Undead kill an enemy unit during their turn, the Undead player gets 10% of the cost of that unit in credits.
3. Blood magic and Diminishing returns: the Undead player does not receive credits for owning bases or occupying cities. at the start of the game, the Undead player gets the same number of credits per turn as the average of each other player. The amount the Undead player receives per turn will diminish based upon a formula or something .. something like(total bases x credits per base / [total number of tiles / total number of players]) ... this isn't it. But something where the more credits on a bigger map, the longer it'll take to decay. But im intending them to lose roughly 10%/turn at round 15, 30, and 45. To give a sense of urgency and to balance out the refurbish ability I guess


Some of the UNDEAD Units' attacks will put decay onto enemy troops.

Overall Vision scores and mobility scores are appalling for this race. 1-2 are most common vision score. Getting to the point where you can build units by your enemies base will take time.

Thematically I am going with reanimated forms of Uniwar troops for the most part. Since those units would be recently dead, it makes sense they would be the ones resurrected. Mostly saps and khra since I'm not sure that Titans are even "alive" :p but maybe some of their tech will be used...

New Feature Request » changing for guardian » Go to message
Quite honestly I don’t have any issue with the balance of the guardian as is.

I think all races have adequate, cost efficient counters to it.

However, despite this, I do like your proposed changes. So I voted yes


As an aside:
I would actually really like to see “guardian does not take damage from other blaster units” added to it, however. I think it is countered crazy effectively by bopper or boarfly... and taking that out of the equation I think would really shift the games dynamics a lot :p ofc guardian would need an accompanying nerf. Maybe this ability in concert with your proposed changes and an increase in cost to 400.....

To elaborate here -
I recommend killing it by blowing it up with lots of stuff.

I PMed all applicants asking for final submissions today.

Once I have all submissions , OR once Sunday arrives - whichever goes first, I’ll get started on my rankings.

I think once I’ve got them all in my inbox neatly I should be able to “grade” pretty rapidly.

Thank you all

You may take this as criticism, but actually I don't think new units are/were needed. They just serve to make the game more complex and convoluted unnecessarily, especially since they are basically not available to everyone. I'm sure some fanboys will shoot me down, but don't let yourself get stuck in an echo chamber that just tells you what you want to hear.

You wanna make more money therefore you're dropping new units; I get it. But I think you should figure out how to better market the game so you can get new users instead. This game is already pretty polished.



xavi no longer owns the game. yes it is to monetize the game but at the top level things are way more interesting. Imagine playing chess with 8 pawns and 7 knights. its boring without complexity. the more options you give people to solve problems, the more strategy can shine. its not about an echo chamber, its about experiencing the game for yourself and discovering. in the past it was "build plasma tanks, place walkers in behind". every single titan game played that way. new units like tankbusters have breathed new life into stale gameplay.


Was not! That was the plan against maybe Saps... but even still you needed speeders for early and mid game ... (I somewhat miss the old Titan endgame and playing against it... esp as Khral)
