The shins are fuck huge because they house the magna clamps that hold them to space ship hulls in space while fighting with zero g ship to ship if the gravity fails, and their life support system cables run up thru the shoulders into the mask, so you have to armor the chest and shoulders well. Also having essentially a shileld on each arm allows you to turn when needed to reload or check around while having decent protection.

Not too sure I like the proportions on those orks. They're too square, like WoW orcs, only given more brutish, rounded, features. And to draw further parallels to WoW, that background looks like it was ripped fucking DIRECTLY from Durotar, the home of WoW's Horde faction.

Sniper rifles should not be worse when unscoped, that's the point.

You don't all of a sudden become incredibly inaccurate as fuck from hipfiring a bolt action rifle compared to any other kind of rifle.

Sniper rifles that require scoping are nearly worthless, unless the game is setup so that you have ample opportunity to apply your weapon. And when those exists, sniper rifles in the hands of skilled players break the game and the game becomes snipers only unless they ban the weapon entirely.

Seriously, explain to me why a sniper rifle should be unusable outside of scoping in. There's no good reason.

It's a stalker bolter. It's pretty damn accurate without scope. The scoping on it is small because it's not a full blown sniper. It shoots fast. Hits heavy.
If they make it like you say it would be an all around weapon. None would bother scoping and would still be hitting from maximum range. If anything you would turn the game into a noscope fest because of your hate for scopes. Which justified or not kills the lore on stalker bolters.

exactly

you'd logically try to coordinate your equipment with those around you

BUT I'd want to emphasize you sticking with people of your own class and that the bonuses only apply to members up to a certain amount

so say you're an imperial guard
you and every other pc like you standing within a certain radius of one another all get a group benefit, up to say 100 people

the 101st person in the radius doesn't get any benefits and would most likely try to go find another group

for spess muhreens the number would probably be more like 20 at most and the benefits would be much more dramatic

>>32185402

That, and also how it affects mixed units, like a tactical squad that gets some heavy weapons and in order for the entire squad to gain benefits they have to slow their pace, or they specialize in flamers and since they'll be aiming to get close and personal for them to be used they won't bother with long range.

oh man, I never thought about people's ability to stay within that radius being so important

that's amazing

I think this mechanic would really really help the game capture the right feel and be a unique gameplay experience

it wouldn't so much be an mmo the way they're thought of nowadays

it'd be a lot more like really BEING a single unit in a 40k army

I believe it's whena unit under the ideal range of a heavy weapons unit loses speed and is therefore exposed to the barrage for longer.

They did though, they provided a stronger bond to the subpar material the heresy armour was made of. Then with the next update to the armour the material got better, but the studs were kept on the pauldron to continue to provide better protection. As of now the material armour is made of is at its best to the point where the studs no longer provide any benefit, but are still kept as a sign of seniority, as you said.

From the looks of it they have focused on legions that are undivided to allow individuals to choose how they want to go and allowing each legion to benefit from all the gods.
This helps with the fact that they appear to not want major game changing differences between sub factions and if each legion was dedicated to a specific god it would really change the mechanics between each legion if they wanted to properly represent the differences between say world eaters and 1k sons.

That said there is still the customer chosen faction and the possibilities for expansions if the game does well enough, but on launch they appear to want to make sure every has as many options as they can have.

No, undivided legions will get abilities from the chaos gods, you just won't be limited to only one set. So I guess you could be a "khorne berserker" in that you'd take only khorne powers, but it probably won't be optimal until they figure out how to do semi-friendly factions like with rival chaos gods.

Aren't most single god groups just small warbands that work as mercenaries sometimes?

It shouldn't be a problem for Khorne berserkers, noise marines and sorcerers to be employed by an undivided legion.

How a language works is based entirely on the popular opinion of the majority of people who use it. Kind of like how you can be right about something in a group, but you still end up getting kicked out because nobody likes admitting they're blatantly wrong. It's all subjective at this point, and the general consensus of the majority dictates what is truly right and wrong, regardless of whatever appropriately-structured, logically-sound argumentative points you have thought out. Ain't life a shit?

in most games, a sniper rifle can kill in one hit to the torso, whereas other weapons take a few hits to the chest to kill. A sniper rifle that can kill in one shot via hip firing or not aiming would be, in short, bullshit in a video game in terms of balance.
In terms of realism, yes, it would work. I'm kinda pissed off that in games sniper rifles can't be used as bolt action rifles without scopes, as the slow time between shots is just as good a balance as any but lately video game designers can't into weapons and don't seem to understand things, IE, a shot to the head with a pistol would kill outright, not just "hurt more".

short version, it's balance. the idea of guns in modern games is:
Light machine guns/belt fed guns: High damage and ammo capacity, slow as fuck movement and reload speed leaving you open.
Sub machine guns: Weak, but accurate, fast rate of fire and movement speed, designed to let you get in close to use the weapon as a close assault weapon.
Assault Rifles: accurate at longer ranges, not as good up close as a sub machine gun, not as good at range as a sniper. Supposed to be a "middle of the road" weapon.
Shotguns: massive damage up close, not as good at range (NOT "duh buckshot stops hitting anything at 10 feet)
This is all in terms of balance, by the way, not realism. THIS is how they're meant to work in games for balance reasons.
Sadly, game designers are fucking morons lately, so sub machine guns and assault rifles can kill god, the other types of weapons can go rot in the corner.

EXPECT SHIT.

One problem is that you cannot really make longer guns to be unwieldy in close quarters because the player lacks body awareness so it would feel extremely annoying whrn the barrel gets stuck somewhere.

Yep. That's right.
I can tell you why. Game development is totally soulless now, unless you're a lucky indie.
All the people who are good at design and programming aren't designing and programming games; they're doing business software instead because it's EASIER and it pays a FUCKTON more, and isn't really at the whim of publishers and shareholders who suck the fun out of it.
