Fire/Ice what's your thoughts on what it should be as a faction.


Recommended Posts

I'm curious since we have all the factions designed but FIRE/ICE, what do you think there faction design would be. With Amii being buff/debuff choice I wanted to throw Ideas of what would be fire/ice big thing. This is mostly for fun and wanted to pick at peoples mind.

This would be my design idea for Fire/Ice

I feel with Ice and fire having more technology based units and soldiers. I feel they could be a technical unit/smaller unit focus. More focus on outputting damage with smaller aggressive units as we really lack a infantry focused faction (bandit's is about as close we get.) with a few Large units being tanks and planes something closer to a modern military with battle forge technology. Big units for support, small units are your major attack power vs the alternative that orb 3/orb 4 becomes.

Main Mechanic

- Garrison

Essentially puts a buff on a building and said buildings (the Fire/Frost specific buildings) that gives said building it's attack with a range bonus. Allowing for bait and pull tactics with buildings, and allowing to have more supportive focus buildings which use units to give them an attack presence. They also get this range bonus on walls.

Shields that are used offensively.
A line of units that either die shortly after being cast or are self destruct.
A heat up/cooldown mechanics, a mode switch. Like rage stacks; only when the damage maxes out the squad starts taking damage and at any time you can change it's mode and those stacks of rage turn in to a shield that scales based on how many rage stacks it had. You can use squads or spells to give those units a shield that would be stronger than the one they could normally give themselves and in turn, boost their damage (both to enemies and the self immolation) beyond what they could normally achieve.

This would give them synergy with nature, as you can heal the self immolation and shadow as you can self immolate for... shadowy reasons.

I think their weapons and theme would be steam, as in steam powered rifles, steam spraying weapons, large mechanical squads; lots of iron and metal.

Stuff like that.
