Beasts of War

    Ive been thinking more about racial differences between the factions and I was thinking, what if we could bring our beasts of war? Something like the plague ogryn, giant chaos spawns, or even a blight drones. Special units that could replace the elite spawn to just cause mayhem at the cost being confined outdoors. Kinda like fleshy vehicles piloted by one guy.

    Why not just have walkers instead? Dreadnoughts, wraithlords, deff dreads and helbrutes are much more fitting since LSM and Eldar don't have beasts of war

    Because this suggestion doesn't apply for half of the factions in the game

    Its our racial, we get big stomping beasts, ork gets waagh, space marines get implants, and eldar get better elites in the form of exarchs.

    Ta da.

    I'd like you to tell me how they're supposed to balance out giving Chaos a new vehicle, giving Eldar a new elite, giving LSM more wargear, and giving Orks nothing all in the same update. And I'm not just talking about game balance, because if everyone is getting something different (and Orks aren't getting anything at all) then everyone will bitch about it.

    Besides, how are we supposed to do all of this when we haven't even gotten Terminators yet?

    True balance? Never obtainable. Adding as many things as we can into the game? Can do.

    These dont have to be the only thing we add as racial differences, the waagh was just an example. We coulda have additional classes or mechanics, scouts, warp spiders, squigs, yada yada. Im dreaming of the long run, where every race gets all their nice goodies.

    Possible? Probably not. Hurts to dream and suggest? Not at all. I rather be brainstorming than get the doom and gloom.

  8. A man can dream, but realistically you need to be looking into stuff that doesn't use an entirely new model and vastly new animations. Like more plague stuff for Nurgle, or generally implementing mor Chaosy things for Chaos.

    Though I do think a Blight Drone with a Fleshmower would be a hilarious way to see if Eldar players would be as dismissive to the ease o hover vehicle Road Kills.

    Who knows? We got people making thunder hammers, looted umie bolters, and helmet less banshees. Im sure there are even people working on termies. The future of EC is a murky mist for us all.

    Heaven forbid someone wishing for something new and complex into the game.


    Bad Rivindesh, Bad! You are not allowed suggest anything new aside from number changes!
