Guns of Icarus Online
GoIO is a team based ship to ship, multiplayer combat game. Also 50% off until may 22
Pretty straight forward, a team of four works together on a ship (with up to 8 ships or 32 players total) and duke it out, with the players piloting, shooting, and maintaining the ship at all times. And even with the smallest ship there are more parts than players to keep track of, meaning that the players must decide whether or not to swap out firepower to keep the ship from blowing up, or in the air and vice-versa. The several components to a ship:
-Hull, the heart of your ship, This goes and everything else with it.
-Engines, what propels your ship. Number depends on class, these go, and you cannot move or turn in only one direction if it's a side engine for example.
-Balloon, vertical movement. Keeps your ship in the air, lose this and you crash into the ground and take DoT until it is fixed or ship is destroyed
-Guns, what else would they be used for. Number and strength (light or heavy) depend on ship class.
The trait pentagon:
Speed - How physically fast your ship can go,
Maneuverability - Turning, more important than what you think, due to the fact that the guns have a limited FoV
Durability - Hp value, some weapons are better at damaging hp than armor and vise-versa
Armor - The armor value
Firepower - The number of gun and what type they are
Classes, note that you can do anyone's job, just that what you specialize in can be done better. What you can do is determined by your classes' equipment.
Gunner: Has the ability to change ammo type, such as the heavy clip which is greater accuracy for less range. Or the incendiary round, which does less normal damage, but gains it back with the DoT. Exactly like the lerk bite dealing less upfront damage vs the skulk bite, but actually does more counting the poison.
Engineer: Tf2 style, just that you can pick an assortment of wrenches that can repair certain items faster, such as the mallet that can fix a damaged item quickly, while a wrench fixes completely broken items faster. But does not repair damaged items as well in turn.
Pilot: The ship buffer, has a spyglass that can IFF at long range, can dump kerosene on the engines to OC them as in more speed for DoT, etc...
