I'm not even sure what you're saying man. I think it's an attempt at petty derision but I can't tell.

Do you disagree that a nob and a marine is a pretty even match? Or are you making an attempt to say that due to the personal bias of teenage males towards superhuman soldiers with rapid firing missile launchers Space Marines are given the plot armour to win over orks?

its possible but there are a lot of problems that arent map specific such as the fact that the Ass Marine is the only character with anything resembling a jump button. This will make all other classes frustratingly slow and a bore to play.

Another one is that the melee system seems extremly unfit for multiplayer gameplay as in all the videos so far it consists of 90% air bashing with samey looking "combos". It just looks silly when 2 melee classes engage and neither of them manages to connect any hits, yet they still follow up each strike with another one eventhough the enemy isnt even close to being hit (because he is on the other side of the room fighting the air himself)

In fact in the G4 gameplay video the player seems to blatantly avoid confrontations after a while (I assume because the combat is a uncontrollable mess) and continues to do nothing but cap points.

The gameplay is already fixed.

You dont add weapons that late during development. You want to know why?

Because it brings a shitton of problems.
Adding flamers changes balance. So you need to adapt to that change. Short range counters have to be changed. Melee has to be adapted. Weapons that fill the same niche (spray and pray close range) have to be changed. The stormbolter fills the same niche as the flamer so you either have 1 weapon that underperforms or you have to find a new niche for the stormbolter. Which in turn means you have to find counters for the new niche the stormbolter fills etc

Its a horrible mess and I will bet my nutsack + a million dollars that you wont see any weapon besides the one already announced/shown.
Because it would be suicidal to do any different.

Sorry, but there's a difference between bolts and napalm in any system.
A flamer has enough fuel for only a few seconds of fire, according to most sources, while a storm bolter is meant to last the entire battle. That's a pretty significant difference right there.
Also, when did storm bolters become close range? They're a faster-firing bolter with the at least as much range in every edition of 40k ever.

I am. I'm not that guy, but that guy seems to be making sense. You don't need to be a professional to understand that introducing weapons late in a game can alter the balance, especially when you're adding a weapon that not everyone has equal access to.

That's what I like about Halo's multiplayer design. The weapon you start with is pretty much inferior to the stalwarts, the shotgun, sword, sniper rifle and rocket launcher. However, anyone can access those weapons. In Space Marine, a class based multiplayer game, not everyone would have equal access to a flamer (only tac marines, or assault marines with a perk that is also limited access?), meaning the games weapons have to be balanced without the balancing effect of equal access.

It's a matter of playstyle.

Look at this thread. Look at the people who have already decided that they only want to play as assault marines, for instance. Their playstyle is "I want to play this specific class". If a game doesn't balance all its classes, then it is failing to enable the "I am this type of marine" playstyle.

You're not locked into classes in Team Fortress 2, but that doesn't stop people from complaining that "X is overpowered". Without making any judgments about the balance of the game, these complaints come from people who want to play a different class and feel that the game isn't enabling that playstyle.

I'm sure there's a playstyle for Halo along the lines of "I will always get the sniper rifle and pick off enemies at a distance". That's not a playstyle well enabled by Halo, and people complain when they can't play the way they want. I'm not sure if it's the design (you can't start with a sniper rifle) or the culture ("stop complaining noob, you don't get the sniper rifle every time) that suppresses that playstyle, but it doesn't seem like it's as much of a concern for Bungie as single class players are likely to be for Relic.

The gun issue is not that big of a deal.
They need to have some sort of parralel with the archetypes of weapons, so Relic took a small creative license to get the weapons to fit. They are still similar to what they originally were, although for balancing sake they likely won't be as powerful as the fluff makes them out to be.

Each chapter has its own cult that glorifies, but does not worship, the Emperor and the Primarchs. It's ancestor worship more than it's god worship. It's still a religion and it's still fanaticism.

Yes. That's how the Imperium works. Everyone has absolute power under the law, it's just a matter of who has enough guns to prove their right by trial of combat. In this case, the Inquisitor used snipers while the marines fought orks.
An Inquisitor, an Imperial Governor, an Arbites Judge, and a Space Marine Commander ALL have the authority of the Emperor himself. Ordinarily, the others won't try to overrule the Space Marine.

The Inquisitor also speaks with the Emperor's voice. He has the right to do anything he deems necessary. The Judge can still deem him incompetent, treasonous, dangerous, heretical, or otherwise criminal and sic an army of Arbitrators on him. The Planetary Governor can still have him seized by his household guard, enforcers, and defense force.

>> No.15648969


Nope. They can ***technically*** order them around, but that alone will do shit if they don't have the power/brains/mutual respect to get the marines to actually listen to them. The chapter master has every right to go "Well I'd love to help you chase some rare, heretical artifact all over the galaxy, but all my forces are already engaged in fighting an Ork WAAAGGH on the sector capital, so for the good of the Imperium, I'm afraid I must deny your request. I hear the Dark Angels are more then willing to work with Inquisitors though, why don't you go over to Caliban and start snooping around. The Dark Angels consider it a sign of respect."

Astrates chapters are WAAYY too expensive to kill off just because a chapter master said no to a junior Inquisitor with some hare-brained scheme.

>> No.15649110

not to mention inquisitors do their homework about the chapters and usually ask for aid in a way the astartes will be likely not to refuse, as in the heretical artifact has ties with a Chaos Lord that caused severe lost to the chapter in ages past

>> No.15649193

>Space Marines are only beholden to their Superiors within the Chapter and the Emperor aren't they?

yes, but if Inquisitor Pimp Daddy the Magnificent offers the chapter master to reveal the location of that one Warbozz that humbled its predecessor or the location of one of the many lost relics from the founders, then the inquisitor can get away with temporarily recruiting a single SM as hired muscle or get combat support from a single squad during a specific operation
Inquisitors rarely just barge in the battle barge and demmand the Honour Guard to drive him to the Eye Of Terror, most likely they respect the SM as a friendly chapter can be a valuable asset for someone who will likely live hundreds of years hunting superhuman foes
likewise, the Chapter Master appreciates the Inquisitor returning the Rosarius worn by the first Master of Sanctity the chapter had and that was lost during whatever battle against Chaos, but knows the inquisitor will be back in 40 or so years collecting favors
