Actually, it's not as bad as you think.

The developer who are making it are actually working on Star Citizen. They are creating the planets that you land on and so on. That makes the possibility of a 3rd person Planet-Side game possible.

Also, some companies have to start SOME where. Don't judge till it's out. Which is End of 2015. Plus, we have no idea if they purchased the Dark Meillenium Online IP, or if that indeed went to Bioware. If it went to these guys, they basically have a 70% game done. Has classes and dungeons and so on. Leaked info saying at Lv.40 you get to do a quest to unlock Heroic Class Grey Knight.

While this game has been mentioned all night, people have missed it. However, we do have one quote from the dev's about it:

“players choose a Warhammer 40,000 race and fight directly as one of their warriors in massive conflicts for territory.”

So, it's looking like you can be any race and it's going to act like Planet Side 2.

I believe that was one of the unsold properties from when THQ died and sold off it's assets.

I mean getting a chance to do a big game. 40k will be a big game.

Yes, GW seems to be helping small developers by giving them the IP. Like the Space Hulk game. The unnamed table-top turn based tactical game.

DMO looked good. It was nearing completion. All that data has to of gone somewhere. Rumours say both the Space Marine IP and the DMO IP have gone to Bioware. So, it's possible it'll be from them.

However, if this company DID get the data of DMO, then they have a pretty solid base, DMO was a 3rd person shooter. So, they could be making DMO bigger or changing it into a sort of PlanetSide game as I said. Who knows. Until I see gameplay, I'm not going to judge a company, regardless of their previous titles. We know nothing about them in terms of exactly what their business model is. They could, like lots of new dev's do, make the crappy games, tie-in games and so on to, you know, make capital, then using that to make a Mid-Level game, then sell that and so on. Just because their past games were 'bad', does not mean the developers and workers are bad. They might of had NO CHOICE but to make stuff to sell quickly.

>>25388552
It was leaked at the start of the year DMO was supposed to come out. Problem is, it was then announced to be cancelled 2 months later. Which is probably why stuff was leaked.

We'll see. I am not judging till I see it. For example, Tom Clancy's The Division sounded crap, but when I saw the gameplay footage, my jaw dropped. But, UbiSoft are spitting on the platform that made them, the PC, and The Division, which is a 3rd person MMO, is console only. Oh, and so is The Crew, a racing MMO game. Thanks UbiSoft.

Doesn't matter. Plenty of studios had a good game even if it wasn't a triple A or A-list title. Some even got it right and their first/only game was a good one.

Why not a game where you don't play the universe penultimate killbot Mk.8?

Nothing kills a game for me more than when you're the strongest ubermensch of your faction's forces.

Give me a third person shooter, light cover mechanics, where you have the choice to play as a simple Imperial Guardsmen/PDF, an Adeptus Arbites recruit, or a low level Ganger.

Fighting to save your planet from Mutants Freedom Fighters, Alpha Cultists, and, fuck it, Dark Eldar Raiders.

GW isn't giving its IP out to these companies out of the goodness of their black, shriveled hearts. My best guess is that they're the cheapest option, which strikes me as frankly bizarre, because this is the kind of project that you'd want to sink some serious capital into. You're opening up your IP to thousands if not millions of potential customers. Dawn of War catapulted 40K into mainstream knowledge for gamers who were around then; a successful 40K MMO could very well trigger a second LoTR bubble like the movies did, only this time, it would last more or less indefinitely so long as the games kept being made.

But then again, it's GW. They make seemingly retarded decisions with their money all the time.

I expect commissars to be a high damage 1v1 type character who gives group buffs and allows you to target one party member and kill them for insane bonuses, sort of like paladins can kill themslves to save teammates. Put it on a long cooldown to keep butthurt to a minimum.

The only possible way for GW to not fuck up a 40K MMO is to make it exactly like some of the 40K strategy games, combined with something like Planet Side 1, or Eve Online; but without the spread sheet autist tier grinding.

Definitely not like PlanetSide 2 though, that shit is fucking image related at the moment. It's a grindy MMO like any other; in fact more grindy than anything, because you can get infinite certs, where in PS1 you were limited and forced to specialize.
Also that fucking cash shop, and camo patterns and fucking ground-light lumifiber TF2 hat wearing shit that destroys the graphical themes. I'd rather have ads in my game than that shit.

>> No.25393283

As far as I'm concerned, the best they could do here would be to borrow heavily from Planetside 2.
The 40K nature of the game would mean that combat would flow differently, with more support for melee combat and the RPG elements would be handled differently. Less emphasis on weapon customization (unless you're orks) and more emphasis on skill and weapon type specializations.

And much more emphasis on resources in the game to the point where choosing a weapon with cheaper ammunition over a weapon with good damage would be a viable option.

Space marines, nobs, psykers and other high end characters would be made available for a limited amount of time upon the completion of various feats. Vaguely like MAX units, but not dirt cheap.

No gray knights at all, those guys just plain have no place in a game like this.

Most important of all - make healing incredibly limited. Any serious healing is done back home in a hospital, field medicine can just patch up wound side effects.
The only disposable health buffer you have available is armor, and there is only so many times you can repair a set.

Space Marines, Chaos, Orks and Eldar...

So how are they going to balance it? I'd rather not have the other team be 90% Space Marine scouts.

With any luck, they start as Imperial Guard. Start off as rubbish low level dudes, earn points by achieving objectives and killing stuff, use points to buy one off upgrades to higher class dudes.

Imagine it, a bunch of dudes save up for fucking ages, upgrade to Terminators and teleport into the middle of the enermy base. Hundreds of Orks charge at them and get mowed down, however slowly but surely the Terminators are dragged down with them. By the time they seize the objective and carry it out of the base, theres only one left, and just as he falls a couple of Rhinos zoom around the corner and drive back the oncoming hordes long enough to make off with the prize

I mean hell, I play Orks and I'd be thrilled to see something like that.

Troop tree concept.

Having trouble with their orks, they don't have as much advancement as Space marines, especially without making you start as a boy which doesn't work because units of the same tier need to be roughly the same strength, i think a scout marine would be superior to a flash git though but if it starts at Nob it makes the tree even shorter.

Honestly, I would rather not involve the eldar in this at all.
Aside from the obvious - the eldar don't do frontal warfare unless they are setting themselves up for defeat, they are supposed to have the best mobility and guns around, aside from some seriously high end mechanicus and tau gear.
They also have the best psykers, aside from some seriously high end librarians and sorcerers.

Look at it from the opposide direction.
Instead of making ranks class equivalents, make ranks just a matter of recognition.

If you invest heavily into stealth, you get the commando rank. If you invest into melee, you get the slugga boy rank. Take that further and you get the 'ard boy rank.

In short - skills and stats are not a consequence of your class, your class is a consequence of your skills and stats.

>> No.25393562

>>25393506
It shouldn't start at boy when Space marines start at scout, a scout would shit all over a boy.
>>25393518
But ranks best fit the concept, Space marines, CSMs, Eldar and even orks all have actual ranks and hierarchy. A space marine doesn't slowly become a chaplain, he is chosen and then trained in that way, the same way you'd choose to take that level. The way you say it could work too, but i still think you'd have to choose the direction. Maybe if you do Stealth you unlock the option to take a commando, but you don't automatically become it, you can choose to, unlocking a new set of abilities.

>> No.25393577

>>25393518
Just to add - your rank would in this case also make equipment available to you.
If you're a guardsman, the techpriests won't just hand out plasma guns to anyone. Or even plsma ammunition, in case you happen to acquire a plasma gun on your own by buying or scavenging one.

You have a quest at max level (i'm guessing 30 or so that lets you unlock the space marine character route.
The space marine initiate starts at level 20 or so, then you advance to scout who is level 30 and then move on to space marine ranks, advancing every 5 levels up to 50.

So, you have two endgame stages - one for your lower tier charaters and another for higher tier characters.
chaos gets cultists and mutants at lower levels and chaos space marines and dark mechanicus at higher levels, Imperium gets guard at the lower stages and space marines and mechanicus at the higher stages.

I'd also personally like to see the upper classes needing to be purchased with EXP or points.

The alternative is either an ENORMOUS grind or pay 2 win to get better characters, or alternatively, the whole battlefield will be Warbosses and Farseers and shit. Neither of these seems very good IMO.

>you actually think that

>Grandest of all his schemes was the vengeance that he enacted upon the Eldar survivors of the battle of Lohiac. A band of Dark Eldar, enacting a precise and deadly raid deep within Imperial territory were mortified to find a raid upon the death world of Raith. The pickings were not quite as the Dark Eldar had expected, however, as they arrived to find the Imperial Guard garrison already slaughtered to a man. Sensing a trap they quickly turned to depart but their escape was blocked by the shimmering host of the Murderval. Nimble Dark Eldar Raiders duelled with winged Daemons while agile Wyches fought against the lithe fury of the Daemonettes. Vengeance for the Murderval's thwarted plans on Lohaic was taken in full as scores of Dark Eldar were cut down and dragged screaming into the Realm of Chaos.

>The Archon leading the Dark Eldar force was finally run to ground within the thick jungle of Raith by Loatheheart, who swooped down from the trees to pluck her up like a bird of prey. Disarming her in a short and bloody fight, and having broken both her arms and legs, Loatheheart delivered her quailing form to Slaanesh's Palace of Pleasure, a token and tribute from the new master of the Murderval.

Slaanesh is basically the elven elf god of elf rape created by vast numbers of elves raping things.
So, yeah, it's still elf rape you, it's just that the elf in question is raping a fellow elf.

I think it would be cool if the more orks were in a given zone the more damage they did.
If every Ork on the server massed in one zone they would become challenging enough for it to require All the imperium and Space Elves fighting together to hold them off. That would be an awesome mechanic.

The obvious downside is that a single ork in a zone would be nerfed to like 50% damage of course.

>> No.25395065

I'm fairly confident their company can do it.

They've made a ton of casual games before, successful ones, and have a large team, this isn't any old indie games company. But this is their first major non casual project, so we'll see how they do, their inexperience in major games might be a benefit, they might not go for the moron audience, they might want to stick to the lore, they're probably not money greedy yet.
Also just because their previous games have been childish doesn't mean that's all they're capable of doing, that's pretty silly logic, it's not like the space marines and orks will be in dresses with giant anime eyes.

I didn't, i put them in my original tree but people pointed out it makes more sense for them to be created out of changing your equipment as a tactical marine than a class of their own.
It's kind of silly to make a devastator class when it's just a tactical marine with heavy weapons. Hopefully you'll be able to increase your proficiency in different weapon types though.

Isnt the only game they've made where you DIDNT play as a space marine Fire Warrior, ie fucking Tau why did you think this would be popular?

Give me a Dishonored-style Imperial Assassin game, with different chapters for each Temple/Death Cult.

Give me a Walking Dead/Mass Effect-style Inquisition game, with different story lines for each of the 3(+) Ordos.

Give me a Bioshock Infinite-style game where I play a Nascent Psyker attempting to escape a Black Ship under attack by daemons in the warp.

Give me a Deus Ex:HR-style game where I play an Arbite searching Scintillan Hives for the heretical bastards that killed my partner, while being assisted by a sarcastic member of the Machine Cult.

You don't need to play as a Space Marine for a 40k game to do well, we know this from the fact that the 40k tabletops (most of which have nothing to do with Space Marines) have done pretty damn well - you need to make a GOOD FUCKING GAME for a 40k game to do well.
Any of these, if DONE WELL, would be at least as popular as Space Marine hack-n-slash was - or Space Marine: Online will be.

Interestingly enough, Andy C has stated that Margaret Thatcher is not where the name for Mag Uruk Ghazkhull Thraka came from. Indeed, he's not sure where that rumor even started. The name for Ghaz stems from when he was larping (as Orcs) with friends and him and his buddies threw together an Orc language (which ended up in 40k). Ghaz' name was basically a direct mash of 'iron-skull' and some other words.

Basically to help sum up for people:

They are making it Free To Play. You are, however, limited to play for free only as an Ork Boy. Which requires 5 to take down one Space Marine.

The current races are:

Space Marines (Dark Angels), Chaos Marines (Iron Warriors), The Eldar, and the Orks. With Nids being the 5th AI race. This will obviously rise in number and variation as the game progresses with patches.

The best bit of this seems to be in this paragraph:

Progression will handled via traditional experience points, but the way in which you earn those valuable XP will be a bit foreign. Sure, you can go off into the world and do your own thing, but if you decide to listen to your Order’s leadership (again, elected by the players) you will get bonus XP and rewards. Say your order sends out the call to sack a particular fortress and you help out? Then you’ll be justly rewarded with XP and Requisition tokens. If you decide to go your own way, you’ll get XP from playing the game as you want, but it’s always in your best interest to contribute to the war effort. Not only will you unlock more classes in each faction, but each class has its own deep skill tree to progress through. So you might start as a base Space Marine, but work your way up to a Chaplain and gain its armor and skillset.

Therefore it seems as there is an actual point in doing stuff instead of running around.

"Progression is set up to reward those to help their fellow warriors, while not limiting the ability for the lone wolf to play his part. The payment model is designed from the ground up to let anyone play while still making sure that those who feel invested have something to invest in. Ships, artillery, fortresses, airships... it’s all customizable and usable in the field of battle. Said “field of battle” will consist of a lot of people on any given map"

So, it's basically Planet Side 2 in the 40k Universe. Which isn't a bad thing.

This, of course, ensures that orks will outnumber everyone and be filled with most of the casuals and griefers, meaning the ork faction will act as they do in the canon; unpredictable, variably skilled, and self-defeating half of the time while pulling the occasional massive hijinks for shits and giggles

in short, SHEER BRILLIANCE
