    awesome idea

    Post by Bunnyrabbit:) on Sat Dec 01, 2012 7:29 am

    hey vicboy with rescue ship coming to the next patch (hopefully) the thing will need a boost..how about making player slot going up to 17 and adding a second thing.....this would been making both things always know who the other thing is and where they are...you would have to make the things a lot weaker
    foe: thing 1 could lock door trapping red in with both things
    thing 2 could stim and lock the other door
    both things morph and eat him
    this would add more skill to the thing

    1 point, player slots can only go up to 16 if you remove hostile and neutral slots, 15 would be the max for this game if vic worked thing from hostile into the player slot for the player who is the thing.

    it would have to be a option if he did have 2 things and a announcement to the map like "One Thing is dead, but one still remains."
    but idk if it would be fun but it would be interesting having 2 because you try to find each other and if your not in thing form if u can shoot each other

    it would be cool to have two because then the things can either
    a: work together and be good
    b: completley ignore eachother and watch as the whole group of marines took off in the rescue ship

    it would be FUN then 1 of the things locks the other in a room and then they find out they are both the thing and they would rampage the reast of the marines

    that would be FUN

    it could be fun but if both things had normal hp it would be opd so just have 2 things with half hp but i would want them to be allies so they can work together to win

    the problem with thing is that marines get really close to killing it......it just runs away like a sissy..once it has killed at least 1 person.. move speed could be tampered with

    he never really posted much related to the topic and im trying to keep it as fair as possible move speed is a factor which makes the thing good if it was slow the game would end too easily if you mess with move speed it means the thing cant run away and the marines can easily out run them with stim so think about that, as is the thing can run away the marines can catch up with stim but if the marines are losing they can just get away with stim, but if you slow the thing he cant catch them easily at all they would just keep running like they always do but make it easier all your thinking about it benefiting marines where the game is already balanced with the thing vs marine ratio

    yea noobs make it easy but if you played with pros theres no way it would be that easy ive seen 4 people in a row try soloing the thing in 1 game and they all died except one person who listened to me and didnt just rush ahead, but my point is its not meant to be easy for marines that would be boring

    1. i agree with toss move speed for the thing should be left alone(except for if vic were to take my suggestion on modifiable bodies for the thing)
    2. 2 things would be nice to implement, but only be able to be haved if the lobby is 12 or more people and the majority vote for it.
    3. quit saying that it's me and you on one side bunny it's more of you vs toss with me being neutral and having my own stance on these ideas.
    4. the things should be able to tell each other apart in rine form, i don't know how they would do this but it should be able to happen.
    5. they should be able to change into colors the other one has acquired, this would require more teamwork from them and allow them to have fun at the same time.

    I like how my poll is 4-0 Razz
    two things would add more of the pleasure that gamethrowers desire (a teammate you can tk with and completley trust and always able to communicate with)----you should always be able to communicate with your thing brother..so that it would require awesome teamwork to win...and you can formulate a strategy with the thing brother

    it know that it helps tkers, but it also results in tkers having to help out people who aren't tkers, i think that if one of the 2 things dies the other one should suffer penalties of some kind.

    maybe but it shouldn't be obvious because he might be mingling with the rest of the group while they are going after the thing.

    that would be annoying yet again, i think when it happens a timer should appear for him that shows how long he has till he dies, unless he manages avenge his brother by killing the rest of the humans, while he suffers an attack penalty, because he allowed his brother to die.
