What would you like to see in WAR40k mmo and Space Marine?
Post ideas or concepts you would like to see in a WAR40k mmorpg, or the Space marines game in development.
I think if they we're to pull this off, they would need to break off from the WOW formula and truly be innovative.
I think levels should be removed, I hate the concept, and the raw brutality would be sacrificed.
Think of it, a level 100 IG standing there with a level 100 SM, hitting each other statically, the occasional blood spurt, but generally boring.
A more fast paced combat system, based on skill, strategy and timing would be my preferred method, maybe a targeting system for limbs, destructable enviroment that could play an effect.
One hit kills would be interesting when dealing with certain opponents, but the timing and a variety of different animations would be needed.
Scarring and permenant things like it would be cool. EX:
A IG gets hit with a grenade, he gets burn marks.
Also, for balance issues, I think some races should have requirements.
Space marine: An imperial guardsman would have to acheive a certain rank from doing alot of missions, after that, then the option to make a savage would appear.
You can make on any recruitment planet, and do levels as a savage, until you and a bunch of other players and NPCs that are in that tribe/area, are gathered to fight, and after completing that, you can start the basic training.
For balanced gameplay, some races will need NPCs that they can assign tasks to using verbs given in the game. For example, an ork and a IG would be given say, 3-5 soldiers starting out, and as they progress, they get more by saving them in missions, whatever.
As for dying, I see that perma death is improbable for a mmorpg of that scale, so alot of alternatives would be interesting.
A SM or CSM dies after a certain rank, they become dreadnoughts and become salvageable after that.
Ork dies, one of his units become the main character played, same with IG.
I would love to see a variety of races to fight in this game, not just orkz.
Another thing i'm hoping to see is customizable space marines, not just coloring but weapons, armor styles, faces, etc. Really being able to make your dream chapter or playing as your favorite, not being limited to the ultramarines.
