This looks really ugly -.-
So the possesed marine is just a guy with a power fist and no ranged capability? Maybe develop a dual weild system....you'll need it in the future (For classic dual lightning claws as an example). And possesed could be your testing ground. Left hand being just a sharp fast claw and right a power fist. I understand that it might be hard to implement but....rolling out this "elite" and expectiong ANY sort of excitement out of it is delusional.
Wait, his mechanic is he runs fast and maybe has an aura? The problem with power fist in melee isn't that you can't get to the enemy, it's that you can only Dbash and fast attack. You only get rock and paper in the RPS based melee system, so everyone knows there's no reason to ever use a fast attack on you, and if you wait for them to charge up for a power attack it's already too late in the animation to do anything but trade.
The melee only Elite is going to have a disadvantage against a knife in melee? What the hell?
Well, from the stream I could tell he had the speed of the Mark of Slaanesh (fitting because they're fleet on the TT) as well as 300 health and armor, and 150 toughness
Also he only has a power fist. Literally.
Sooo....he's going to come with MoN/pseudo MoS/Red/Gold armor and a PF?
Fuck ya'll...I want to look sexy over being functional haha.
This seems like an instant no buy, I was most hyped for a deamonic possessed of all the elites, I bought the Kommando and it was rather underwhelming.
I can only assume the possessed with be a unique mark/wargear1 item for Vet TA that gives stat boosts and such but prevents the usage of ranged weapons.
Presumably the Vet TA with this possessed thing would probably be able to equip weapons other than a power first (just like how the Vet Slugga can equip all types of weapons) so you could grab an NCS, power sword or whatever with the stat boosts.
Going off the Twitch, there wont be a non-RTC version for this Elite.
That's the idea.
Well What's my opinoon on this guy? ugh.....
Well image-wise, he looks great! You can tell the devs put all their hard work there.
but everything else? eeehh
A slightly faster powerfist with a aura........You want people to PAY for this?
You need to give the elites a GAMEPLAY reason to be used. Not just a new image. What I was looking for in this one was a dual claw berserker type. The dual wield being something that could draw players in. I also would have made the elites color-changeable.
It also doesn't help that people can get pretty much the same thing via tech tree. The motive to buy an elite is becoming smaller and smaller since players can get the same thing for free. Pretty soon the only reason to buy these guys will be for image alone and that's not fun.
This guy needs a lot of work done on him before players even see him on their screens.
I was fully prepared to immediately purchase the Possessed Marine. Then they revealed that Heroes would just be reskins of veteran classes without any unique gameplay and I thought "Well as long as it look cool I'm still in." And then they showed what the Possessed Marine would look like.
I hate to harp on the team but aside from a few minor parts like the helmet, skins and arms they are just put together other pieces already in the game on a model and then retextured some of it. The texture looks more messy and cool of daemonic and overall it just makes me sigh in disappointment.
I am both unsurprised and disappointed by this. The kommando had a semi unique gimmick of cloak instead of cap. This is a pile of hitpoints strapped to an AV weapon. Also cosmetically (for those that care) if a non RTC was avail, nothing stops "Stock appearance man" like me from taking whatever wargear they make up (Mark of possession) and strapping it to a better weapon and rmbing around.
