Hey I heard in the video that if you win or something online your army gets carried over into the next online match or something. What is this all about? Just wondering.

Thanks

From what i know online play is persistent. Everything that you build and the armies you create will be there still the next time that you log in. Of course, thats what i know thus far :P

It`s quite simple really:
-Whatever units you have after the end of the game, will be there (all healed up) at the end of the game.
-Your town will also be transfered as is, and damage to the walls e.t.c from the last siege will be fixed.
-On the peace of land which you own, any changes to it`s terrain will also be persistent - if you cut down that big forest it`s not coming back.

So your army, castle as well as your plot of land is all carried
over to your next game then?

It is. All the wall breaches will have repairs started on them (takes couple of minutes into the next game to finish), all units will be healed and repositioned in formations inside your town too.

Woah thats pretty cool.

PS So if no one attacked you the whole game and then you quit the game you will get your fully upgraded base and all in the next game?

Thanks

A forest could only grow back if there were seeds to grow from, since there aren't any trees to produce such i wouldn't imagine a forest could grow back on it's own unless trees could somehow be planted.

Maybe peasents or farmers have the ability to plant things like trees.

Hows about something like the Settlers 4?? you could make a foresters Hut who go out and plant trees while your woodcutters cut them down and produce what they do best.

I loved that idea for The Settler! ;)

Hah, yes we certainly do.

Not only it makes for quite a spectacle:
...rain, thunder in the distance, sad flute melody playing, field with hundreds of corpses, blood, mud, and fires burning here and there...
And here you come in and use this as a hay farm field:)

But this also has a huge impact on gameplay.

Just think about it - every two of your units which enemy kills gets them a unit of their own. As a result - we expect to see:
-fewer, but much more epic battles players will be careful to only start a battle if they think they can win, or have no other choice.
-from time to time even 1 battle which will decided fate of the game. 3 players on 1 side and 3 on the other, 6,0000 units total after 10 minute build-up, come to face each other. Hell yeah:)
-and this renders any "unit spawning", or other mass production strategies useless.

Anyhow back to the topic of carrying your army and land. Yeah - what is the best way to grow the trees back? Would you rather see this done automatically, or have some tree-planting feature? Like a forester building?

The villagers or whatever the main builder/gathering unit is called should be able to reforest, tress don't just reappear by themselves. It would also be able to have some tactical purposes as well.

Yeah I like that idea better especially if your elves you could plant trees by your enemies base then hide your troopss in them to ambush people.

Yeah but by then with the amount of archers I would have you would be dead before you got 200 feet within reach of me.

Burning trees will be great. It will probably give you such a tremendous feeling of POWER. =P

Unfortunately it's not all that stealthy.
I wonder how long it will be before people will start accusing other players of arson.

And then i'll own while you guys are fighting i'll plant a forest around the area and lay thousands of archers around the outside, then when you come burn it down you all get owned :cool:

But i would like to see people being able to plant trees for practical and strategic purposes, and of course burning forests down. Also invading armies should be able to set fire to buildings outside the enemy town i think like pillaging.

Quite a few spells from the Fire school of magic will have this effect. Additionally archers with fire arrows would be able to set a forest ablaze as-well, very similar to what they done in BftME 2. We hope to make this tactic more common though.

Theres a system to balance that out so not to worry. It has to do with levels. IE: 2 level 4 guys could take on 8 level one guys, 4 level 2, or whatever combination of things that add up to the same level.

Yes Witch King, in the MMO version will keep the army you have created in the previous game. However the system will prevent you from fighting someone who is below your level without them having a teammate(s) to back them up.

That could go, I hope they implent VOIP in the game or maybe teamspeak support so that you could join a teamspeak server ingame and maybe invite the "newbie" because it can be quite harsh to prepare your tactics etc if you have to type it.
