I don't mind any of your ideas.
But mark my words - Sins will sooner see chuck norris roundhouse kicking fleets as a superweapon than any of the cool ideas that pop up around the forums - Starships, your weapons of mass destro, etc.
Devs have to fix their game first, then do what they planned on.
I seriously doubt there is any positive chance of these ideas making it into the game. Sorry ;s
i agree... IC definitly has a very strong position on makin the game THEY want, not what the community wants...
which is totally fine... unfortunate, but fine.
i have to say though... semi-spammable superweapon ships... not a great idea... the cap ships will go down to focus fire.
lets look at it:
1) you make it part of a fleet. you use the cover of the rest of your fleet to increase the WMDs survivability. The thing about the argonev Big Red Button is that it damages friendly ships as well as enemy ships. so, if it has the power and range to affect the enemy on a fleet level, it should, in all fairness, damage your ships as well. so you wouldnt use them as part of a fleet. there is just no explaining it in lore, fairness or otherwise.
2) you use it like a suicide bomber... and with enough health it survives the focus fire and gets throguh to decimate the enemy fleet (which so many people would hate) or else it doesnt have enough health and goes down to Focus Fire before getting in range...
so its either useful and uncounterable unless you have a shitload of bombers and LRFs. or it goes down to any decent amount of FF before being of any real use...
so, in my (humble) opinion, its an unnecessary and unbalanced concept, no offence. i just dont think it is needed at all, and i think it will be a bitch to balance, either its too effective, or not effective enough to the point of being worthless.
interesting ideas though, i think superweapons could be used somehow, but not like this
as for the black hole generator cruisers... focus fire as well... but all they would do is make battles end quicker... which IMO is useless... combat is a major part of Sins, and making them quicker just seems pointless to me...
