Assessing interest: multiplayer campaign with custom battles feature.

Postby Purplefluffybunny » 15 May 2016, 19:48

How many of you would be interested in taking part in a multiplayer campaign?

Looking over the development roadmap and noting the functionality of the 'custom' battles feature, there seems enough scope to make viable a short multiplayer campaign. Through using 'missions' intelligently and having a system map to fight over (webpage updated with results), it should also be possible to link strategic gains on the system map to available ships and fleets whilst having defined campaign victory conditions.

I am going to leave the 'rules' details out for now and just assess people's interest in taking part.

agreed. This would make a better use of the fleet- and repairmechanic, as well as increasing the long time motivation. :mrgreen:

Well, not that much interest then! Concerning given dropping player numbers more generally.

Sounds like a cool idea, unfortunately some of the missions are really one-sided such as convoy. A handicap system based on the missions could work though.

I could be interested. Much rather have something like this implemented in game as a part of the game than jumping from a website to the game in between every match.

Sounds good to me,
gather up with likeminded people, play a few matches, sounds well enough!

I agree, it should be a game feature but I doubt we will see it added. I don't think the jump between a website and the game will be too harsh though as often the campaign part will be turn based and with battles resolved on set days. The issue is in the game design for the multiplayer campaign but that is not as hard as you might think. As so much here is dependent on the particulars of the 'custom' battle mode I'll hold off on posting a rule set until we see it.
