Most important feature to you for Battle Cry?
« on: December 04, 2012, 09:09:46 pm »
So, with the game very slowly coming up, I thought I'd make a poll for people to vote what they think is the most important part of the game to them. I think I've added in most factors, if not...suggest and I'll add it.

To me, the number of players is the most important. I really want this game to stretch the limits when it comes to the amount of people that can stabilly play on a server. That feeling of massive warfare is what I want most out of this game.

Ballistics are highly important in my mind, I want the bullets and cannonballs etc. to fly with beautiful authentic patterns

Music, gore and destruction/epic explosions. Ah, just think about it, you marching slowly towards cannons that rips apart your friends, while a calm song plays in the background..

Both the larger battles, and the new historical accuracy. And honestly, they could both be rolled into one option, because larger battles are more historically accurate. :P

(The historical inaccuracies in NW have always bothered me, given that I'm OCD about such things.)

Gameplay (ticked the box closest to it in the form of melee/horseriding mechanics).

If the game does not manage to be interesting in the micro scale the macro scale will undoubtedly be very sketchy as well. It's like trying to build a straight wall, but with bricks of many different sizes and shapes, not exactly impossible but alot harder than just to make sure the bricks are even from the begining.

The epic sense of scale will be the selling point (outside the United States that is), and while I expect it to draw in a lot of people it won't make them stick around unless there's solid gameplay to get them hooked.

I think the most important aspect for me is the ambiance. Actually, immersion is a better word for what I describe.

I guess since the immersion depends so much on all the systems working properly and in harmony with each other, along with their quality and ability to make an impact on the player's feelings, immersion encompasses all the suggested features. The larger battles will play a big role, yes. All the other things like object destructibility, melee quality, etc. are required to be as accurate and impacting as humanly possible.

I'm writing an essay at the moment, so I don't want to spend too much time getting into detail.  :o

500 people in a server is epic and all, but if they actual gameplay isn't up to scratch(but it will be, so this is a ridiculous fear) then I don't see 500 people in any servers in AU.

In a review I recently say warband was acclaimed to have some of the best horseback combat on the market, it will be interesting to see how BCoF replicates this and/or improves it.

Voted melee, albeit I do very much hope massive battles will be somewhat stable clientside so +1 on Harby.

A great melee system is what I voted for.

The ability to create "custom defences". As an engineer making, raised and sunken battery's out of sandbags and planks, tickles my fancy big time! It would be awesome if a similair engineering system could be implemented in Battle Cry :D

This is a similar concept to morth's post but it is obviously something ambitious but maybe realistic digging so you can create your own trenches and the piling of the dirt looks good, like minecraft in a sense so you choose where to dig, but the dirt then acts like a sandbag so it would stop a bullet :P I hope I made sense there
