what do we know about diplomacy in MWO?
Posted 28 December 2011 - 04:25 AM
Diplomacy between MechCorps could be very important for the meta-game in MWO. I hope developers take this very seriously aswell since it affects to the global balance of power into the persistant map.
It would be really nice to have some kind of system in place to "exchange" planets with others with no combat, or maybe for money, mechs and spare parts. Also they should include some options to create alliances between MechCorps to share missions, chat channels, loot, etc. I would also like to see that a player becomes some kind of representative when he/she gets the highest ranks in a House, so he can decide what to do with certain planets.
Did the they give any tip about how diplomacy between players is working to work?.

Wait... In q/a 2 devs said:
Can members of a Mercenary Corp also work directly for a faction, and in addition to this if no, is there any way for Mercenary Corps to assist in the fight for faction worlds, not to take for themselves, but to assist the faction. –Haeso
[MATT C] Yes Merc Corps work for factions, though the planets taken working for a Merc Corp are different from the planets taken when working within the faction

Mercs aren't faction players, mercs fight on border worlds for factions. Faction players fight on faction worlds, lone wolves fill in when there aren't enough faction players for the faction world fights. Maybe it's just me who is confused about how mercs fight anyone but other mercs and anywhere but on border worlds...

Fun to speculate on.
I originally thought this was a post about diplomacy in the fictional world of the BT universe and I was going to say its really simple and I think this is a quote from one of the novels though I can't remember which.
"Promise them most of what they want. Give them some of what they need. Use them for all they are worth."
Anybody remember where that quote actually comes from?

And..what do you mean Ludo..trade planets without any combat? PvP game, why would they include decidedly non-PvP ways for planets to be exchanged? Merc unit wants a planet, they get permission to take it from the House sponser, I'm pretty sure the House wouldn't be please to see them TRADE that planet by giving their ENEMY resources to use against them somewhere else, think that falls somewhere between 'treason' and 'giving aid to the enemy'..which is just another way of saying 'treason'.
