Woudn't it be awsome for war elephants to be train(as single units). They could be both melle and ranged. With their powerful tusks they can bash through anything in its way. And with towers on the backs, archers can shoot down enemys from it. This is just and idea and i think it would be cool. It doesnt have to be trained it could also be bought from a mercenary or something. This will probaly be cool :)

Uhhh not really :/


Wouldn't fit the current humans environment.

like i already posted on your previous thread, giving elephants to humans would be overkill, considering they have the better cavalry, stronghold and siege equipment.

Yeah, humans DO NOT need a large monster-like unit. Besides, it wouldn't fit in with their European mediaeval theme.

War elephants not only don't fit the style of the humans in this game, there is also no logical environment for them, and humans aren't really the race to have big units.

Mercenary units perhaps? The only real way I could think of adding.

Alexander the Great would be opposed to War Elephants.:D

Yeah, plus the climate the humans live in isn't really suited for elephants.

Everyone knows that the only things that fit humans are cow riding and burning pigs. Or actually a few breeds of dogs can carry humans, they can use DOG RIDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But wargs are canines, so they can't be used.
But battle cows sound nice :o

Yeah just remember when the minotaurs come it will also work as a great distraction, especially during mating seasons:o

the only race i would think that would have war elephants are the orcs because it reminds me of Mumakils:p

WTB Tribal Race with War Elephants!

If you want more races, the DoF universe has to expand first. Couple more continents or islands.

Want to buy, I think War Elephants would be great mounts but each race has a "set" mount so a new mount would need to be unique to a new race. Tribal goblins FTW!

OR.... a norse/viking race with, instead of war elephants, war mammoths. Mammoths are way bigger than elephants.

That would be sick. But if there were to be another race i think it should be a creature type i dnt kno what kind of creature but something cool

Well, there were plans for minotaurs as playable race, to to be honest think that minotaurs alone is just bit bland. Might as well make it a multi-beast race, The Beastkin/Folk.

Hope they dont put them in....but a multi-beast race seems interesting though

I'd like a race that, well, isn't really a race. It's more centered on mercenaries than traditional armies.

Aren't war elephants sort of back tracking over a couple hundred years before humans had knights

Alex Walz
12-04-2010, 03:25 PM
Nope, war elephants were used right up until the 20th century since they are more effective on harsh terrain than horses. The problem is the geographical separation. Our men are more based off of the Western Medieval Ages while elephants are more Eastern.

Daft
12-04-2010, 03:32 PM
I'd be all for adding different cultures of men some day, particularly an eastern-style kingdom. You could have different elven factions, too, as well as orcs. To me, it's better to diversify what you've already got, rather than to just keep adding in completely new races. Besides, it also gives you the chance to do something completely original with the existing races and branch them off from traditional "fantasy".

Alex Walz
12-04-2010, 03:40 PM
We have different factions of the races, they just aren't based off of our cultures.

For the men, we have:

the men loyal to Dagbor and King Erian that you can play as
the Menthorns, rivals to the throne
and the men of Salicia Mas, mostly-peaceful fishermen, merchants, and shipbuilders who have declared their independence from Teria, the realm of men

For the elves, we have:

the High Elves, the Elves who specialize in architecture and alchemy
the Wood Elves, the Elves who are devoted to nature and lore

For the orcs, we have:

the common orcs under the kingship of Makkada
rogue ogres, who can be recruited by orcs
rogue goblins who have claimed independence


And then there's some political conflicts that further divide the orc realm that you'll discover in the MMORTS campaign.

We also have other sects like the wizards that have roots in all three races.

Whoa, that's pretty dang awesome. How much does your faction affect your playstyle?

For sure, but we have a fantasy game... how bouta some beasts...

so -
human - some kinda elefants, gryphons, etc
elves - ents, unihorns etc
orcs - many species of trolls n giants

Alex Walz
12-05-2010, 12:13 PM
We already have ents/treants and unicorns. And have some plans for the other beasts you mentioned for DLC content - although the giant would be given to the humans if implemented.

12-05-2010, 01:54 PM
would being a different faction in your race matter in relation to other factions who are opposed to you ,like the human rebels and loyalists?

Marcos182
12-05-2010, 02:32 PM
I'm ok with fantasy beasts and stuff.. but i'm a huge cavalry fan, I dont want my knights riding anything other then a warhorse. Gryphons would be cool for a leader type unit, or elves or something like that.

12-05-2010, 04:20 PM
ya i see kind of like lotr i see you might be thinking of but even then it seems like it would be more of like a bandit or like foreign kind of like indian lol thing but i think cause like in lotr they were like these bandint kind of people with war paint and were more like mercenaries but i still think it would be kind of cool :)

Radman
12-06-2010, 12:15 AM
They should keep the units they have already got but i personally just want a completely new design of fantasy creature for any of the new races they bring out instead of just adding more to the 3 races they already have.

12-06-2010, 12:05 PM
Awww, it would be nice to have them in the game. ;P

goblins on elephants.. thatll be the day.

Also in regards to different factions within each race will that have some bonuses? would be cool...

Talfryn
12-12-2010, 12:34 PM
Yeah, Orcs on Elephants lotr style would be pretty cool.

12-17-2010, 01:44 PM
Well elephans fit some barbaric humans and I dont see how a "european" humans like these could have them. Now a mighty plate charger....

What about mounts? I may have missed it but are there plans for mounted combat and different types of mounts?

LiTos456
01-20-2011, 05:31 PM
Yes, mounts are in the game.

tomche
01-20-2011, 05:34 PM
might ruin the fantasy side of things

You got something against elephants? Are they not fantasy enough? HUH?!

Elephants rule, bro.

Actually triceratops riders would be sweet. It would keep the fantasy side of things going and give some race a non elelphant heavy heavy cav. Ride on Tric Riders. Ride on.
