Idea:Avatar Battle

Post by FireMaster »

Basically,the idea for this is having everyone who wants to participate create a unit for their avatar and having it battle other units in one massive Avatar Era.Eg.I would be a Swamp Champion,Dave would be some kind of god type unit,EP would be an Elvish Pillager,Qes would be a Daiso Monk etc...
Just because I'm a master of fire doesn't mean I'll light your "uber candle"

This imho doesn't work as you may think, and mostly because there is people that have different lvls units on their avatars, or have non game avatars, etc... etc.. the result its nothing balanced (stats between eras vary a lot)

redeth even has 2 horses and two knights on foot, he should have four units?

the only feasible way would be to have something like the "core RPG" in which all players have access to the same "tools" and rules to create their own "avatar" to enter the fray.

Also, each unit has its own defense on different terrain, there is no "actual arena" in which each unit could compete on its favored terrain, to boot units themselves aren't balanced (but factions are) so you will only do a mess.

Have a happy weekend.

.. and some avatars ( mine ) only exist as a graphic.
there is no era/faction ( at least i don't know any ) that makes use of this graphic

My Avatar actually has a hidden weapon special that instantly slays any unit with forum member names on it.

So, despite Clonk's impressive stats. I'd insta-slay him.

Doesnt seem fair, it'd be a cheap victory for me :P.

actually, i HAVE thought about a forum era - with, like, devs&spammers&siths&customcontentcreators.

sprites would be based on both avatar&behaviour&job&username - eg thrawn would be a saurian in sith cloak, while Higher Game would be a troll with BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA special (dunno, maybe enhances the damage based on some opponent stat?).

no advancements, of course.

So, this would be an unbalanced era? Or would you try to maintain balance?

Like the Dev's have awesome abilities, but the spammers have sheer numbers. Etc.

I think that the idea is stupid, as it ends up just being a munkin fest. Aside from that would you use the name or the avatar.

As I said in a diffrent thread awhile back, "Velensk" was the name of an NPC in a D&D campain I created but never got to use. He was lvl 16 which would probably equivilate to lvl 4 in Wesnoth though some of his abilities would not transfer well and he would not be a good 1vs1 character being a rouge. On the other hand if you use my avatar I'd be a slightly modified stalwart which is unlikely to get me anywhere.

Oh, wait, in this case, I forgot to mention my hidden ability: Super-Anti-Inta-Slay! This prevents your ability from working on me :P

Anyway... As I said, I don't really like the idea - but heck, if you still create such an era, put me in! :D
(Content Creator, Lvl 2? Rough idea on stats: Bad HP, 100 XP (AMLA), Nice MP, Excellent Melee Attacks with blade and impact damage, rather okish ranged attack with impact damage ("throw rock"). Terrible resistances, godlike elusiveness)
I'd consider it a just-4-fun-era then... 8)

@Tom of wesnoth: Heh, compared to mine your stats look really weak... :P

the worst part of the idea would be that only forum oldies who know most of the ppl and their generic behavior would really appreciate it.

so i guess the target group would be too small to be worth all the sprites.
