Hey, I was wondering if in DoF there will be any lone buildings AKA battle towers, keeps, maybe like a watch-tower or something like that. Because then you could take over it and have another vantage point. It was like in BFME2 the outposts and signal fires you could capture. I think it is a good idea because it adds to the game.

Thanks

how about you can send your worker over so he can destroy it and get like 60% of the building resources... couse its a bit unrealistic having a baracks in an enemy base.. or am i wrong?

the other way around.. instead of geting the enemy baracks - you destroy it for resources.. not ur building - enemy building.. (couse it doesnt make much sence having a baracks inside an enemy base..

when you play multi in like 3v3 - one of your enemys is defeated.. you can bring a worker to his base and destroy his buildings for resources...

thats my suggestion

If he is defeated wouldn't his buildings be gone already? And why use a worker when you can use an army to destroy it faster?

it wont neceserily be defeated because:

1 he can just surrender
2 you dont have to destroy all the walls and houses for example

you use a worker because with a worker you get resources per building you destroy - with an army you get nothing..

Ok I get you now. But if he surrnedered would he just be out of the game?

PS Instead of destroying the buildings he should loot them or get resources from them.

i dont know about surrender.. ur probably right.. well thats the looting/geting resources..
like if a house is made out of wood - we would take it apart and take all the useable wood..
so basicly it is looting..

It is looting but it would make the player/team that's winning have even more of an advantage.

Yeah the other team mate should be able to loot thier partners buildings instead.

Seems to be a good idea.

but the team with the missing player is already battered, how shall they fight?

not once did i see a good player win 3-4 in a row.. but now that i think about it the players in the mmo are matched by rank (meaning they are about the same level). But i see no problem in using it in skirmishes. Maybe have it as an option for the host to deside.

Looting would be a good idea, maybe have workers or armies looting buildings. Armies would be quick and get less resources, whereas workers know what to look out for so get more resources.

I really like that idea. You can only harvest so much from the environment, so getting resources from conquered buildings would be a nice bonus.

So u are just capping the building/s with worker and then selling them is that really called looting?

no, you are not capping anything.. you "loot" the buildings for goods and resources.. and yes, that is what i think looting is all about.

(nothing official here, just my personal opinion on how it should work)

Why not add rubble to the game to were every time a building gets blown up rubble is left of the building.
