Eldar Executions

    Tbh I'm stumped. The reapers need to stay long range, but no matter what mechanic you try and use (execution cooldowns, majority damage requirement) long range executions are going to lead to execution poaching and or farming. Plus it will be hard to make them cool.

    The one option that does appeal to me is maybe having a limited supply of "special" ammo that negates the downed state. A bit like how the lascannon currently vapourises people. Obviously you wouldn't want this to be happening all the time, but having the option to make sure a high threat target doesn't get back up would help compensate the reapers for not having a execution option.
    I would emphasise that this option should be very limited though and not consider as a excution. Negating the downed state from a low risk long range posistion will heavily affect the balance of a firefight.
  2. why not letting reapers have just a normal execution like everyone else?
    there will be situations where they get in close up fights
    so they can execute them in that situations

    If reapers get into up close fights they shouldn't be the ones doing the executing. Each Aspect should be rewarded for fulfilling their role but also they shouldn't be encouraged to step out of their role.
  4. well executions are just a "fun thing"
    it has no effect on gameplay so they do not need to do it but can do it

    Same deal with classes like the Apothecary. Their time is probably better spent tending to their friends rather than executing but they're not gonna be neglected execution animations when it's given to everyone else.

    Lift Enemy up into the air with their weapons and insert Dakka?

    there should be some ranged executions ... otherwise the whole extra xp system is biased towards close range classes

    We call those Headshots in most games.
  10. Remember Reapers are shooting missiles, your finishing shot would have to be gibing someone.
