Is anyone else afraid this is going to "Spore" on us? I'm hopeful of being able to play a 40K video game with a single-character focus and chosing a faction but worry about it being a single server mmo.
Also what faction are you choosing? I want to get an idea of the /tg/ interest in the game

SM: Ultrasmurfs, Dark Angles, Blood Angles, and Spacewolves sadly no BT, despite then taking to the game like a duck to water, though rumors of Imp Fists are rolling
Chaos: Black Legion, Night Lords, World Bearers, and Iron Warriors. Kinda hoped there would be the aligned factions but I like IW
Orks: Bad Moons, Deffskulls, EvilSunz, and Goffs. Join the Ghatzskull Waaag
Eldar: Iyanden, Ulthwe, Saim-Hann, and Biel-Tan

I figure the order of most to least popular will go: SM, Orks, CSM, Eldar

>> No.29223028

I'll probably be an eldar. I think there is also talk of a /tg/ ork clan.

>> No.29223134

Just imagine a fluffy Necron faction.

This is your home base, it's nearly unassailable and you can attack any point on the server from any direction

These are your NPC helpers they are as good as the Space marine ones except there are 10 times as many

This is your character he can lift and throw a Eldar like a ragdoll and his weapon will punch a hole in whatever you attack

This is your bases power core if someone throws grenades at it you and every other Necron player is logged off and return to base.

Game is in early alpha stages and set for somewhere around 2015, you can sign up for the beta on the website (bottom toolbar)

It started out very simulationist in the early demos and media and gained a following based on that nut then at some point during development there was a major change in direction and it ended up highly arcadey/cartoony.

not necessarily anything wrong with a cartoony game but the change up did kind of suck and the fans who were expecting something else were buttdevestated and remain so to this day.

How is a race famous for its superhuman grace and experience being as skilled as a marine bullshit? Many guardians are former aspect warriors as eldar adopt and cast aside the warrior persona depending on what path they must walk.

An aspect warrior is still more skilled due to his tonne of special rules and marines aren't supposed to be more skilful than eldar, they're supposed to be tougher and stronger. That's what makes aspects/marines superior.

Are you basing that on anything other than you wanting it to be the case?

Actually, this is not an opinion. The Pre-Damocles Tau stalemated the forces of the greatest Eldar Craftworld with just primitive suits and Fire Warrior formations. The Eldar even deployed potent weapons (Wraith Knights) and it still did not avail them.

I would put stock in the words of the Shas'O, If I were you. If this conflict happened in the 990+41K with the Tau having all their latest technology, they would have utterly crushed the Eldar forces.

i think the idea of a MMOFPS is kinda silly people get excited and think it will be like a MMORPG but there have been like heaps of failed mmo shooters for years and years and years honestly and i think the best MMOFPS was probably battlefield and only recently have things like DayZ taken the MMOFPS in a new direction.

i think people like to think of MMOFPS as a MMORPG with guns but guns just don't work in dungeons bro if you use guns properly it just becomes a singleplayer game vs Ai and if you use them wrongly they just become magic missles.

any one have any ideas like.. i think im up to date on this game.. from what i gathered it would sort of have coop player levels probably like gears kind of plus multiplayer map to "cap flags on"

sounds like it needs some other ideas

Dude...It was not known if it was a Greater Daemon or not. The miniatures accompanying the fluff shows Slaaneshi Marines and corrupred Kroot.

>A horde of fierce-looking warriors in armour emblazoned with shimmering colours and surrounded by a cacophony of discordant noise, bearing icons and sigils of wanton indulgence was approaching. On the flanks came snapping creatures of disturbing appearance, hideously genderless and garbed in fine silks and ermine trimmed armour. Where one would expect to see hands, these creatures were equipped with sensuous claws and darting, barbed tongues whipped from their jaws. Shambling horrors of thrashing pseudopod, claw and fang were driven before the army by grotesque, beast-headed monsters armed with crackling energy prods. At the centre of the horde stood a giant in electric blue armour, edged in gold and pink. I took this to be none other than Slaanesh him or herself and vowed to personally defeat this vile creature.

The reason they are making Tyranids AI/dev controlled is for two reasons. One, it is very difficult to make tyranids work in a MMOTPS. Two, they are going to be used to stop one faction from steam-rolling the others on a planet (controlled by dev part) and so it's the easiest race to explain why they are suddenly attacking the most powerful faction on a planet.

Will do.
The tyranids are a very melee heavy race and if you played space marine you know that it would be boring as all fuck. They are also a very team based race with all the synapse creatures and such which is not very good in public MMOs where if a key swarmlord just disconnects in the middle of an important fight, then you're bloody screwed. Tyranids rely on that synapse a whole lot more than other factions rely on their big guys. And also, lets face it, 'nids are goddamn OP fluff-wise and they would never be able to justify the classes they choose for the players without them being horrendously OP or UP and ruining the fun of others.
They can't just give reinforcement bots because each race/class will be different when it comes to playstyle and coding all those different reactions to stuff will take forever as well as what if they give one faction too many bots and they begin to steam roll? They'll have to give all the other factions bots to compete and start filling up the server with just bots in order to keep balance where they just could had a tyranid invasion take place and balance everything out without just outright giving more power to one faction.
