Now, I’ve been requesting this for a long time, more and different machines.
Ranging from automated tanks with cannons to SAR (Kill Command, DO go see it, brilliant movie “about GZ in a possible near future”).
We have now 3 machine types (NOT including Ticks (because, silly much underpowered, nigh useless) or Harvesters (Not exactly combat type, are they, thought they CAN pack a punch if you do not look out), and one on the way in the coming DLC.
Seeing from the point of story, and thus the game, only 3(4) machine types probably were not capable of erasing the army as it did.
Surely, Tick did not kill the army tanks.
Well, unless I missed something there, of course.
Little buggers might have well entered them sneakily and went poof inside.
Then again, seeing they hardly harm a person… there were like a thousand to kill a tank…
I can’t see 1000 Tickies sneak themselves into a tank. :s
Gunner doggies (Runners) too probably did not take them down, same reason, damage shortage even towards players.
Missile doggies then… not sure whether they pack the punch to duke out a tank, but these are nasty to players (DARN good thing right there, these about are the only ones I truly respect, nasty buggers for sure).
Hunters: Naughty, relentless once they spot you… but able to tackle a tank?
I have my sincere doubts.
Tanks then… (the bipod versions, not the tracked ones), well…
They seem to be able to get a tank down, one would say, until you notice that, with luck, you can survive 4 missiles.
These tanks were probably original meant for rabbit hunting or so, as you end up with a well done baked rabbit, but as far as killing people, well…
So, tackling a tank is also not their forte, I would assume.
This brings us back to the mystery: what, or how, did they manage to erase the army.
You, a schoolboy teen, wake up near a house, where you find a weapon that should -quality wise- either just not function, or that should blow up trying to.
Dilapidated simply means: horrible shape.
But yet, you manage to even kill tanks with the darned thing, if the need arises.
And some even pulled it off…
That aside: back to the question, what, or how did they (the machines, obviously, not the rabbits) pull this off?
3 possible explanations:
- The Swedish army is just that extremely bad. Now… this seems quite not the thing…
- The machines had support from other type machines. This seems quite very probable.
- The machines became all horribly damaged just after the assault. Hmmm… well, it is not impossible, but how big would these odds be.
(If I missed one, please do tell me… writing as always on the fly here).
2 seems the most likely option.
Now, as said, we get a new machine type, and even a complete new class (the Apocalypse Class) for the machines (Oh please, God, I beg you… not AGAIN the same machine AI with just more armour AGAIN slapped onto it, but an actual FEARSOME class, AI wise (increased response time (notice = react), fire on the move, stuff like that)) which will, I hope, bring more realism to the story, thus the army being erased.
I already had offered a ton of ideas in this regard (both graphical as well as textual ideas, like burrowers and the likes), which received many approval.
So, like my previous post about machines following indoors, I’m going to create a poll here.
If the pro’s outweigh the cons, I will turn this into an actual request.
It will NOT stop here!
I have another task for you:
This was the post I referred too: [SUGGESTION]New enemy types - Remade
Please read it (if you are PRO, no use if you are CON, right?), and tell me which 5 machines you would like to see.
IF one type was not mentioned that you would like to see still?
Then suggest it.
If we get more Pro than Con, I will make this a formal request, with the 5 most liked enemy weapon platforms liked by you, folks.
Those that go CON: please elaborate as to why you do not like this idea.
I’ll go first:
Reason/motivation: sheer (game/Story) logic. (See above for motivation)
Preferred new machines: Abstain.
Reason/motivation: I love them all, I do not have a personal preference, if it was up to me… but it ain’t, it’s up to YOU, my friends.
Enjoy this one…
