Overwrite custom camoflague for House colors and camo during faction matches?
Posted 12 July 2012 - 01:22 PM
If you've sworn allegiance to a House and are fighting in it's military in the faction wars matches, should players have their camouflage temporarily replaced with faction camo for the duration of the match?
I was also thinking players could pick from a pre-set list of canon faction camo to use during those matches, so they'd still have some choices.
At the same time, I'm wary about forcing players to use certain color schemes, even if it would add a lot of cohesion to the faction battles, and make sense lore-wise.
Mercenaries would obviously use whatever they wanted.

God I really wanna play lol
edit: Don't faction unit camo schemes have enough variation that they might as well be, for the most part, any random or independent faction? I'm not a paint scheme expert by any means but not all Liao units incorporate that bright lima bean green do they?

Now that would be really cool. It adds another perk to rising in rank.

Furthermore, in canon terms, it doesn't really make sense. Even among the regular brigades of a faction military, there's really no such thing as a single "House" colour scheme for a mech. Each division has their own distinctive paint jobs and insignias.

I know that this requires faction/merc fighting, but i still hope we can have larger battles where houses and allied merc-companies can fight side by side.

They can do this through a design contest so that a reasonable amount of clan colors can be implemented per "month"

As for my 1%... units should be able to make and submit a skin for review if approved the unit leader should have to pay for it and it unlocks for all members. In this case you will find most people who are proud of their unit will wear the skin for that reason alone. even if it looks terrible

-Shutdown mech in the woods with woodland camouflage will like it
-IFF jamming gear might make targeting harder or at least require you to be within range.
For the those (me included) in their hot pink atlases with flames on the sides it wont matter - we will be like a heavily armed pride parade regardless of IFF, shutdown mech or even if we had a pink planet to hide in.
Depending on how seriously one takes the game (up to a point) It would be up for the groups themselves if they want some specific camoflage.

Also, even within a single company, camo schemes vary widely because they are painted on in the field by the crews themselves. Just look at some pictures from WW2 to see how a single paint job can be interpreted very differently by different people using whatever paint they could scrounge up. So I vote no overriding paint jobs. But I expect to see everyone flagging for their faction.
