Let's pick up where we ended: what kind of stuff would you want to decorate your spaceship with? Not saying we should go tell the devs to put those things in, I just think it's fun to speculate.

It's an entirely different project. Different devs, totally different gameplay.

For those speculating about the FtP/P2P/Microtransaction stuff, from the website FAQ:

>What business model will the game use?
>Although it’s still under consideration, the current plan is that Eternal Crusade will be “premium with a free-to-play option.” By purchasing a copy of the game, you will have access to it forever with no need for a subscription. There will be post-launch expansions, as well as a cash shop for customization & convenience items. If you don’t want to buy the box, you can still try the game as a free-to-play version of an Ork character. As opposed to the premium Orks, your progression will be slower and some options will be locked off, but you’ll be able to go anywhere and fight for the Waaagh! If you like it but still don’t want to pay the full price, you can unlock some of the missing options with microtransactions.

Faction leadership break down

>Council: An unknown number of elected players who will run the entire factions actions, deciding where forces and resources go, and electing hero characters

>Squad Leader: Elected by squad mates, the leader in the fray who fights along side the squad

Player-pilotable Titans is reaching into impossible-tier, but something like dev-spawnable NPC Titans that serve as spawn points for players and vehicles would be doable.

I'm sure there will be, as there have been mentions of unique abilities your armies can employ, also apparently at some point your personal space ship can do things, like orbital strikes, so I'm guessing deep strikes will happen, just like in Planetside where drop pods can come down to locations that are smoked.

>> No.26992739

True, but you could find ways of taking them down as an infantry team. A Terminator strike team could brute force it into submission. Alternately, fast attack forces could kite the Titan into a mountain pass or chokepoint, making it ripe for jump troops to assault from above.

Personally I think stuff like replaced limbs etc will be cosmetic and decided on character creation (maybe restricted to certain classes, like mekboys and techmarines in other to make the difference between classes more visual), while some things like cybernetic eyes and cables that go into your brain have actual in-game effects. Just speculation, of course.

Now, the problem that's inherent in this is that as such the F2P Orkz will be rife with griefers and the like.

Hm...a potential solution is a "Krump" skill for Nobz, which targets the biggest friendly-fire offender in range and smacks him for a lot of damage (perhaps even fatal damage), in addition to temporarily disabling FF in a small radius around the Nob. It lets the powerful players deal with the troublemakers AND lets them redirect their Boyz at the objective/enemy that they need to be foightin'.

Well, they'll fight amongst themselves with little-to-no prodding. The problem is putting some kind of check on it so any potential griefing doesn't drive off new players.

Wait, I've got it! If you die to FF, you get a very hasty respawn timer and a special random respawn point near where you got killed. Any equipment you're carrying is not dropped (and will still be on you at respawn), and if you were in a purchasable vehicle, its cost is refunded to you. That way, even if you encounter a griefer, being killed by him would be nothing more than a minor annoyance. And to top it off, he wouldn't be able to spawn-camp you either, since you get a random special spawn a distance away from him.

I've figured it out, if their is a town area where the players can buy items or chat then that is where the Orks can fight to be the leader.
