Okay folks, here's an idea that I've been kicking around and I Would like some feedback from the forum for consideration/refinement.
So, we all know that whenever an alien player builds a new structure they get points added to their score. I think that is great, it’s a bit of motivation to strengthen the team. Still, I feel that a little more motivation is in order.
Here's a list of benefits to go with various structures:
Res Tower: Res towers, as far as I know, dispense one res per second to one member of the team. This cycles through the entire living team. What if the builder of a particular res tower receives 2 res from his tower when his/her turn arises? There could be certain limits placed on this, like it could max out or something.
Upgrade Chambers: A builder of a particular type of upgrade chamber will gain a discount on the cost of upgrades attached to that chamber. This benefit could be cumulative so that if a player builds enough of a certain chamber, the upgrades could become free.
Hives: As hives speed up an entire team's respawn rate, perhaps the builder of a hive, who, lets face it, sacrificed a lot of res to build it, is automatically put further up in the respawn que.
Offense Towers: Already give the builder all the res from the kills so, what more do you want?
These are my suggestions and I feel that as the current NS climate seems to favour marines, this will level the field once more. Please, give me suggestions and feedback, in other words, FLaMe AwAy!
