View Full Version : Companions

06-02-2012, 08:11 AM
so we got some Elite Units now :)

Unfortunately we are still missing the Two Handed Sword Fighter I for my part want to see *gg*
but well thats another Issue

Now I would like to bring up the Older Proposal I once made

Give us some Immortal Companions for our Heros :)

Dragons once were Immortal so the Game already has a System in Place for Additional Immortal Units :)

Right now I think we have 4 Quest Points where it is Possible to Award a Companion without even putting anything new into the Game

After the Tutorial you can get your First Companion
Simply being your Vice Captain and using the Graphics of the Gatekeeper of your respective Race
(when you gain the Possiblity to Fight Random Target within your own Territory)

After your First War against another Race you get the Second Companion
This can simply use one of the Generals Graphics

Then the Third after you War the Second Race
Again using a General of your Race

The last would be upon Completing the Main Quest Line
and could be a Wizard/Shaman of your Race

that would make 4 Companions for your Cause

I usually like Partys of 6 :P
so I would propose to also Offer 2 Quest Lines at the Shop
which upon Completion give you Companions

1. Being a Quest that brings you to the Dwarfen Lands and Gaining you a Dwarfen Hero Unit

2. Being a Quest bringing you into Desolate Hills and Gaining you a Nordic Two Handed Swordsman :P

Just wantet to bring this up again
after all you already showed you know what I am talking about :P

you played wow or swtor too much

Anything useful to add or is that your attempt of humor?

I personally like the idea of having a Captian unit that could perhaps be added to your hero or lead a squad for some buffs, perhaps it could give a special tactic eg. get a archer Captain, attach it to group of ranged units and it gives ability to do a accurate volley fire or something

Sorry to tell ya but I played neither of it at all
I neither Like Science Fiction nor Comic Graphics

You on the other part seem to be quite young and quite influenced by those Games if theyre the first you associate with Companions

Just so you know
The Idea that 1 Main Character has 5 Companions making a Party of 6 Characters would be more logically associatet with Baldurs Gate

As for Captains
ye that was another Older Suggestion :)

its called Models,not graphic.
graphic is the result that you see on your screen.

Qote from Wikipedia
Graphics (from Greek γραφικός graphikos) are visual presentations on some surface, such as a wall, canvas, screen, paper, or stone to brand, inform, illustrate, or entertain. Graphics word is derived from the word graph. A graph has x and y axis. Same way something which is created in digital word is seen on a digital screen, this screen also has x and y axis. So the output on any digital device is termed as graphics. In other words an image that is generated by a computer called graphics. The pictorial representation and manipulation of data, as used in computer-aided design and manufacture, in typesetting and the graphic arts, and in educational and recreational programs.

Examples are photographs, drawings, Line Art, graphs, diagrams, typography, numbers, symbols, geometric designs, maps, engineering drawings, or other images. Graphics often combine text, illustration, and color. Graphic design may consist of the deliberate selection, creation, or arrangement of typography alone, as in a brochure, flier, poster, web site, or book without any other element. Clarity or effective communication may be the objective, association with other cultural elements may be sought, or merely, the creation of a distinctive style.

Graphics can be functional or artistic. The latter can be a recorded version, such as a photograph, or an interpretation by a scientist to highlight essential features, or an artist, in which case the distinction with imaginary graphics may become blurred.

A Model would be the Human Paladin for example
I dont like Models which look like some Gorilla which has Fists as Big as both of his Legs together
and which has Shoulders on which two people of his own stature could dance on

I am however talking about the whole Graphic
this includes Surroundings and Effects as well as lighting

Thus Comic Graphics

For Explanation
Comic Graphics Identify themself by rounded edges and wobbled lines
textures are a little winded and physics are ignored to drastify the effect :)

maybe I can offer a truce and call it
Comic like Graphics
that might make it easyr to accept :)

Well then
anyone got something to say on Topic ?

You've made a couple threads on this already. /close

This message is hidden because buddhist23 is on your ignore list.

I would ask who you are and why I ignored ya
But as it is very very rare for me to be annoyed enough by someone to actually ignore him

I.ll just assume that it was another off topic remark

Thus forgive me that I wont bother reading your post.

ps guys
its fine if you hate me *gg*
Justice and Charity just dont mix after all so I am used to being hated :P

but it would be nice if you could keep on Topic :)
If you cant leave personal Feelings out of Discussions I.ll recommend keeping yourself out of them completly ....

You've made a couple threads on this already. I suggest the mods close this thread due to Sunleader's repeated bombardment of his pointless ideas.

oh..and..just to let you know sun.

This message is hidden because Sunleader is on your ignore list.

Not a lot of people like you on the forums here Sun....private messages ;3

I suggest the mods close this thread due to Sunleader's repeated bombardment of his pointless ideas.

repeated bombardment: talking about something over 4 months ago is such aggressive peddaling of an idea. Or are you talking about the thread one from last year?

maybe if people would actually keep on topic
instead of talking aboit star wars and wow

06-04-2012, 05:43 AM
if the idea isn't that well received the first time around. It's most likely not good at all. If the same idea isn't that well received again for the second time around....someones just trying reallllly hard to get it. Really, if it was a good idea- those threads would still be alive. But they're not. Case Closed.

06-04-2012, 08:22 AM
I cant read his Post but I can read Quotes of his Post
guess the Ignore System has holes ^^

Also dont bother with him

I can Discuss things over Months with Someone and not take it bad on that Person
The Fact that I ignored him can mean 1 out of 3 things

1. He never Posts anything useful for the Topic

2. He Insultet me senselessly

3. He kept following me through threads trying to troll me

In all three cases he is just not worth the effort to write something

Still waiting for a mod to close this thread. There's a reason sun left the forums for quite a while- because people got tired of his ego.

As it stands you can buy some pretty handy heroes to work as companions for your hero if you like that sort of thing. That being said I suspect the devs are leaning away from powerful immortal units and immortality in general. If they were going to give immortal units out with any regularity you would probably see prized commemorative units like the haunter or ice dragon get it first.

I could see additional mortal heroes being added to our retinue one day though, and I would certainly be happy to see it. :)

06-04-2012, 09:55 PM
Well the Idea is not to give out much Immortal Units
but a definite amount over the Game
means you will never have more then 6 (for example)

Also I already got several Dragons including an Ice Dragon
I have been around for some time ;)
even If I am very Inactive due to work :P

I could see use for immortal workers to prevent players from getting crushed too bad, though even if they gave out a dragon slayer and a high knight on normal quests I don't see them needing immortality.

When you have strong units that cannot die forever it changes the strategy, you can be bold when you shouldn't be; you don't have to consider what you can afford to risk because there is no risk at all.

haha, then go buy some heroes! :p

This forum section is for free discussion of all ideas to help improve the game experience, just because you dont agree with them doesnt mean you get to demand that the devs silence any discussion surrounding the idea proposed.

To Summarise: If you dont bloody like it, dont read it

Maybe try going after the idea and not the person and we can see some more on topic posts

06-06-2012, 07:52 AM
Well Reason for me leaving Forum is actually that I am in the Wokring part of the People
I am working Shifts in a Coal Mine in Northern Germany
and thanks to Japanese Nuclear Accident and our Politicians getting scared our Output of Coal to Supply the Coal Power Plants has doubled
Of course some guy like him who apparently has the time to stalk me just to try and spam my threads might not know what working means ^^

In any case
I think I am pretty much free to Suggest anything I like ;)

As for Heros I bought some on First Day they were out :)

Also dont mistake this :)
I am talking about Hero Units with Special Feets and Abilitys
not with Combat Power
so Wasting em because they cant Die will be Meaningsless in a Fight :)
