  • New Hero: Paratroopers

    What do you guys think about adding a Paratrooper as new hero? This paratrooper will have a different Specials icon than the original paratroopers. He'll look different than the other paratroopers...he'll have a more badass Hero look to him...and maybe have him use a different gun. Also, there can only be one on the battlefield at all times. You won't be able to deploy him until the cooldown process has completed. You won't be able to start a new spawn until the other one has died. And he'll count towards your unit cap.

        Creative idea, but I think would be very unbalanced in the design of keeping PvP and Defense competitive.

        The way you describe them, I assume we could start adding Perks and upgrading the Paratroopers which is something I have wanted for a while. But the way you describe, on top of being able to upgrade (as Hero unit), think of all the Anti-Air locks you could get rid of by spawning enough Paratroopers that aren't even using up your Unit Cap.

          So uses up unit slot on the loadout screen, but can only use 1 at a time and has a double cool down while counting towards unit cap. I am certainly less concerned about PvP vs Defense competitive balance with those tweaks.

          Personally I would want just the following
          * Let Paratroopers show up in Barracks so people can apply Perks or even Hero Perk slot and maybe even have some Medals to earn
          * Add Paratroopers to the drop-clock and battlefield special drop pool of items

          I suggested that when I had first started playing the game over 1 year ago and people on the forum here responded very negatively to the idea at that time.

          I thought about adding them to the drop-clock too. It's not a double cooldown, it's more like a charge-up meter. You click, the meter charges, when it's finished charging you can deploy. You can't start another charge until the other unit dies. Idk, my mind is just always wandering. I thought it could be a cool new addition to the game.

        No, bad idea. Paratroopers only need a few tweaks. They just need to engage obstacles better. Paratroopers with hero perks and lvl 6 perks would go thru structures like a hot knife on butter. Just imagine your base being attacked by a couple sets of paratroopers a decoy being deployed and your tents are gone. I used to drop paratroopers very close to someone’s HQ and let the paratroopers take care of their Tents then just let the clock give me some extra specials and it was a sure win.

          It won't be a group of paratroopers, just one single guy. And there can only be one on the battlefield at all times.
