Someone find that penny-arcade comic that basically says what it boils down to.

I think they could make it work, but they would have to jump up the fluff timeline, maybe actually bringing the main Tyranid hive fleet in, and or having something go really wrong in Cadia to make Chaos a bigger threat.


They would need something to be a big enough threat to make the races work together, because as it is right now, they won't.

they could do some interesting things with an MMO in the WH40k universe. Instead of solo grindan, questan and raidan like in WoW and its clones, maybe a WH40k MMO could be some kind of big PvP thing. Like you have a planet where the Imperium (SM, IG etc.) is fighting Chaos, a planet for something else, hell, a planet for everything.

I have no thought about this a lot, but do you get what I mean?

>> No.8866754

Simple, only make SPESS MEHRENS, Elfdar, Orks and Chaos Space Marines playable. Maybe Tau or Dark Eldar could work too, but mostly the 4 core races. I can't see Imperial Guard being playable due to them being fucking weak when compared to everybody else, and Necrons and Tyranids just don't fit as playable races.

>> No.8866761

Oh yeah, I forgot necrons. They could start wakin up faster. That could also be part of the threat.

>> No.8866873

Unfortunately for most of us, the 40K MMO is going with the traditional beaten to death MMORPG format that we are all too familiar with. It's going to be along the lines of Warhammer Online or World of Warcraft.

I really hoped they would try to go with the less obvious but much more interesting choices, i.e. Dark Heresy or Necromunda. It's hard to make an MMORPG based on the tabletop game without fucking up the "vibe" of Warhammer. If they wanted to use the tabletop game, they should've made an MMOFPS instead.

If I was making it, you would play exclusively as either Space Marines or Chaos Marines. You would pick your chapter as the equivalent of your race and your role in that chapter as your class.

Everything else would be NPC's. Marines vs Chaos Marines, I think, is the only conflict which you can delve the deepest into in an MMO, considering the possible betrayals/misconceptions/temptations available.

This would displease a lot of people who have fan-favorite races, but from a writing and a gameplay standpoint, it really seems to be the best and most capable option.

Playable "light side" positions.
Imperium: Guardsman. Specialisation trees range from HWTs to vehicle pilot. Immensely wealthy players may become assassins or inquisitors, though these classes are nominally quest-giving NPCs or battlefield objectives.

Eldar: Guardian. Specialisation trees; 2 close combat trees ( scorpions or banshees ), two ranged specs ( avengers or dark reapers ), two fast trees ( warpspiders or jetbike/vypers ). players who remain guardians to a certain level may specialise in heavy platforms ie falcons, warwalkers or fireprisms. Harlequins, firedragons and other "gimmick" classes remain as NPCs or temporary classes purchasable for significant funds.

"WHY NOT MAKE IT AN ALTERNATE 40k SETTING?"

and what alternate setting? ROGUE TRADER

>> No.8868000

Personally I think it'd work best as a squad-based game somewhat similar to Guild Wars. Players would be an IG Commissar, an Inquisitor with a smaller personal retinue, a Nob, a Shas'ui or an Imperial Assassin of some kind. Maybe a semi-successful Rogue Trader crew could be an option too, as well as a Mechanicum detachment. Eldar would be a possibility in VERY small squads I suppose, but they might be pretty overpowered. Dark Eldar, CSM, Spess Mehreens, Nids, SoB etc would be unplayable but present in the story (perhaps as "elite" or bosslike creatures, present in PvP, etc). Of course since this leans heavily on Imperial PCs since there's just so much more diversity and balance, you'd have to balance it out by promoting a feeling of distrust between the branches of the Imperial players. An Inquisitor might hire or conscript a Commissar player, but they wouldn't help each other normally, and likewise those players may find themselves pitted in battle against tech-priests. With each "class" would come benefits and drawbacks, such as Inquisitorial retinues having access to better equipment or tougher troops, but not having as many as a Commissar's squad. That said, it'd be insanely hard to balance a game with this structure, so people would bitch like crazy. This game would never work as an MMO since they have to have such mainstream appeal, but fuck I'd like to play it.

>> No.8868107

I always imagined it being the most fun as a single squad controlled game, where the wholesale tactics of many people with squads/platoons/units work together to achieve warzones.

well, don't get me wrong i love guild wars, but i don't think gw style play would work for 40k. in 40k there's so many different factions with so many plans and motives. in gw everyone plays as a human so it makes sense that everyone would be on the same side, not so much for 40k

>> No.8868162

>>8868124

You're missing what I'm saying. The squad-based aspect would be reminiscent of Guild Wars, but there would be nearly no player-to-player cooperation unless compensation was involved. Unless you're playing a low-ranking footslogging IG Commissar you'll never really HAVE to work with anyone but your own, and a lot of the time interadeptus tension will put you in a position where you have the option to fight other Imperials.

>> No.8868176

I just had this thought but it's very much a matter of 'same shit, different smell'.

Make ranks a matter of internal promotion within the player guilds, where guild taxes are used to buy weapons for stockpile within the guild bank. Therefore, someone playing a Cadian who specialises heavily in shortranged combat would be -considered- a kasrkin, even though there is not official class for it, and would be given access to gear appropriate for his specialty.

This will help to keep people from over-generalising, as well as keeping canonical rank/class systems in check, ie that not everyone can be a firedragon because a) the gear is expensive, and b) they have limitations that must be accounted for elsewhere.

Game is totally freeform, no blizzard-WAR factions, just guilds fighting for glory. 40k-EVE for thought.

Eh, people would be disappointed that they couldn't play Spess Mreens and it wouldn't sell.

You can however have an MMO with more than two opposed factions. I can't see a major problem, in theory, with dividing everyone a bit more than that. It would hamper traditional MMO gameplay forms like dungeon grouping, but I think the future of the genre is going to moving away from that or at least interpreting it differently such that you don't need the whole tank/dps/healer setup.

It would certainly make pvp a lot more interesting.

>> No.8869433

>>8869111
could work. when you activeate your account you tell when you'll be most active, how competitive/active you'll be, language and race. You then get thrown into a guild (have mods/admins running them to try and keep things fair, at least in the begining) Your guild decides where/who it will fight, grants you gear and ammo access, and can boot you (to another guild with the same criteria) if you just dont fit. Marines are limited by guild caps: a guild is a Strike Force, which is part of a Company, which is part of a chapter. better gear means that your smaller guild is on par with larger ones, but without skill you wont be able to overcome odds much better than 2 or three to one. guild auto-assigning will ensure this is common, and whoever pulls the strings for your guilds deployment area will ensure it is likely.

Why do you need space marines? It would be like allowing players to be daemons when playing the Chaos faction. If anything, just allow players to do like >>8869111
said and allow players to purchase 'high level' gear like this, but only for very significant funds.

Balancing the chaos faction is probably harder than balancing the Imperial side though, as nominally you're either one flavour of cultist/petty sorceror, or you're a beastman or some mutated bastard in chaos armour.

The answer is simply to make SM and CSM as NPC factions that you can buy armour/weapons from.

One thing this will do is keep high-value players in high-value gear, fighting high-risk battles on high-priority targets. Thusly the game becomes somewhat self-balancing as the greatest concentration of good-geared people flock to the same place, *particularly* if you make death when wearing this kind of gear meaning you lose the armour, which the opposing faction can take and melt-down/sell.

The whole 2 or 3 united factions thing is fucking retarded.

Developers, especially the WH40K MMO developers need to avoid that mindset.

Divide the game universe into territories. Have many factions where who you can be allied with is based entirely where you are in the game Universe.

Eldar are never going to let IG people walk around their craftworld, but they sure as shit are going to team up when their Farseer sees it as a necessary action.

IG is going to hate the Xenos, until the Commisar gets orders that, "Hey. Shit just got real, we're going to team up with the Tau, common goal and all, during this Ork invasion."

The WH40K universe is very fucking flexible, and cases where factions are absolutely opposed is limited to a few distinctions; e.g. Imperium v. Chaos, Dark Eldar v Everyone, Eldar v Chaos and Dark Eldar.

Being stuck in the insipid idea of just 2-3 factions is fuck dumb with most game universes, much less WH40K.

>> No.8869687

>>8869526
Mass appeal only works when the game conforms to expectation of the greatest number of people.

The same people who prove again and again that if they want WoW they will play WoW. So what should developers be doing? They should be starting small, and working up.

If it were an MMO i'd like to see Squad development opposed to commander only development (aka each player roams around with 2-3 other units which are either Vanilla NPCs or Whos stats scale with yours based on their weapon/class choices)

>> No.8869734

Game should toss out leveling and opt for a more DoW2 Last Stand approach to powering up your character. Instead of upgrading from a +1 lasgun to a +2 lasgun, make it something like you're a guardsman with a Lasgun as your default weapon. Upon clearing some of the quests in an area, you're allowed to now wield your choice of a sniper rifle, flamer, or grenade launcher. More quests will allow you to unlock stuff you don't have yet. The new weapons don't provide linear stat bonus, but instead change up your playstyle. Later, more difficult quest lines can get you things like sentinel/leman russ licences to pilot in PvP.

Also, make PvP similar to tabletop. Compare a guardsman to a space marine and no matter how you slice it, the guardsman just isn't as strong as an SM. So, assign all classes/wargear a points cost like the tabletop. Sides are balanced based on those numbers, so IG armies will field many more troops compared to a Chaos Space Marine army. Make the "raids" have the same kind of point limits, which encourages guilds to work with what players they have and spread out gear how they think it will help the most.

>>8869841
The problem with having each race be a separate faction is that it would be damn near impossible to set things up so that you can play with your friends. With a smaller number of sides, there's a greater chance of finding races you enjoy playing instead of being forced to play freakin' SPESS MAHRINES (or Tau, or Orks, or whatever) because you got out-voted.

That's why I like the "Everybody works for the Inquisition" idea. Inquisitors get to work outside the normal rules, and it provides some glorious excuses for PvP due to doctrinal differences and different types of radicalism. Fellow inquisitor using Daemonhosts!?

Or just have it established like in >>8869111

Everyone has their own guild, you're basically part of some rogue-trader/outlaw 'faction'. Rogue traders being on good terms with the Imperium, thus allowing oversights like having Tau and Eldar crew members to be ignored..

and the outlaw/pirate 'faction', who are not friendly to imperials, and by extension are going to be at war with them.

Think about it. Immediately you establish the concepts of player-run guilds, an overall pvp theatre as well as justifying people having their own motivations seperate to the major racial divides. Guardsmen can return to Cadia for specific training as allowed by their funds, Eldars can return to craftworld X (presumably Alaitoc) to specialise as aspect warriors..

and for the pirates/renegades, they get to return to chaos worlds/rokz/cammoragh/whatever for their equivalent.

Out in the open world though, these players are still mortal enemies to everyone not in their guild, and for pirate forces at least, their towns will have little in the way of guards to prevent in-city PKing, which will suit people of the whole "chaos" mentality quite well.

Yea, but there are some choice ones in this thread. The success or failure of the game will predominantly come down to the gameplay. If there's a runofthemill leveling scheme in place I might just skip it. I have better things to *waste* my money on.

My main concern is that they're gonna screw up the cannon... Like, the flexibility of the 40k universe is that it's in a galaxy where there are a crap-ton of planets, so there's essentially areas of space that they can do whatever they want with and nobody will mind.

But you know they'd never stick with that. Who wants to play on "Generic Unknown World V" when there's Terra and the Craftworlds?

Basically, unless they keep the overall campaign localized, like they did with the DoW games, they're going to run into problems when it comes down to even basic things like geography.

Well no they probably couldn't. Provided you used the roguetrader/guild system that has been proposed in this thread already, they will never amount enough power to take on the Imperium in a meaningful capacity, or ascend to daemonhood.

Nigger are you mad? There's no way that could happen.
>Craftworld

A burnt out craftworld maybe. There's at least one or two of them.

The brilliance about 40k over WFB is that ANYTHING conceivable is possible. High tech imperial forces, barbarians, magical monster bs, fighting on a lava planet. It's all justifiable within the context of the universe and its setting.

Two thoughts: one why does there only get to be 2 sides? Can pvpx4 exist? I'd love to see a 4 sided koth.

Also imp guard could be a pile of 5 soilders each one going down at 20% markers. I'd love to move 5 super effecint guys who move as one finely tuned machine
