Another Time Capsule Thread

It's that time of the DB cycle! After the next merc's reveal, shall we make another bet?

Also, I'm merging 2 polls into 1 thread, to avoid redundancy.

http://www.strawpoll.me/14086967
http://www.strawpoll.me/14086979

My bet:

MERC GROUP: ASSAULT
GENDER: MALE

I know I voted for the same thing last time, but after seeing the pattern of merc release (Thunder, Aimee, Turtle, Javelin, Guardian), there hasn't been any new Assault merc released for nearly 2 years. And male, because recently we got 2 female mercs, 3rd time's a charm!

    My bet is a female assault. Don't know why but that's my guess.

    Definitely has to be an assault merc, for the reason OP suggested, but I hope it is a bit different to your usual nade merc, something a bit more different, similar to Rhino, but hopefully not too similar XD.
    I wouldn't mind a robot/ cyborg, since they are pushing all this fancy tech out recently.

    Bayonetta, you're a mystery
    You come along with a destiny
    This is your life, a battlefield telling you who you are
    Bayonetta, this is your time
    You're gonna sparkle, you're gonna shine
    Girl, when you fight it looks like a dance, you are magic, you're magic

    Come on, come on, come on, there's only one way, your way
    Come on, come on, come on, you know there's only one way, your way
    Dance, fight, spin around, spin around
    Dance, fight, fly higher, fly higher, fly higher

    Bayonetta, you bury your loneliness deep down in your eyes
    Sadness lies in your smile
    But victory shines in your eyes
    You're still alive

    Now let's see the time span.

    If Javelin was 09.22.2017 and Guardian was 10.10.2017. It's been 49 days or 7 weeks (every 6-7 week, like they said).

    Then the next one should be on 28th of November, presumably... Considering the worst case scenario: 7 weeks.

    I think i have a theory regarding future merc...

    You know how there's heaven and hell, yin and yang?
    What if the future merc was the opposite of Guardian, whom she's associated with angels and heaven?

    Like that merc could have sound wave ability, which shakes the ground, and have associations with hell and devil? Or some other ability related to ground manipulation?

    But what about Stoker you say? Well, he's too much of a gentlemen/candyman and Hank Hill rather than devil...

    A merc like that already exists.

    After reading @Eox post about new objectives, an idea came in my mind : there was a "hacking device" in game files that you were able to equip by typing the console command "set SGPawn secondaryWeapons (A_hackingdevice_01)" (showed in a WTSFM video in 2015, doesn't work anymore).
    So what if the next merc is a hybrid engie/recon class with this hacking device ? You place it on the ground and every ennemy deployables in radius are disabled, then after one or two seconds are reactivated but as if they were on your side ?
    Or instead of placing it on the ground, you throw and stick them like fletcher's stickies.
    If the hacking device is destroyed, deployables are deactived and reactivated as if they were placed by their original owner.

    Or maybe create a bubble, like Guardian does?

    That's the buff I suggested for Phantom in other thread. Using his OPSAT, I mean... buttons on his glove ;)

  • Officer Jenny with Grandeur

  • My money is on an assault, but a recon is possible as well. I also want a hermaphrodite merc, preferably a snail or maybe a worm.

    Clownfish are Hermaphrodites... or are they traps?

    Okay, so we have...

    A clone soldier
    with a dog
    and a battle rifle...

  • Recon Android. Calling it.

  • And so it happened...

    I got his gender right, unsure about the group.

    Is he going to have a shotgun?

    I presume SMGs, much like Phantom.

    Hmmmm... the only merc groups left for perfect 25 mercs, are Assault and Engineer...
    Now it's absolutely hard to come up with any merc...

    Unless...

    @stayfreshshoe said:
    I like the idea of a Merc with a jet pack ability. Would be an interesting mechanic. We don't have a set number of Mercs that we plan to release, but definitely don't want to add Mercs just for the hell of it. If there is a gap in gameplay which we can fill with different and interesting mechanics, we will do so.

    I wanna see a little engineer robot which you can deploy to do objectives :3 That or a Merc with throwable armed C4 (but people tell me that's crazy) or throwable C4 which all Mercs can arm faster than normal.

    Rostrum wants to make a Merc called Falcon, but needs some concept from the community to help him design them ;)

    What about a sniper assault with a laser sight?

    "Falcon" sounds like a sniper character.

    Sure, it does.


    Falcon, the UT's Sniper rifle equivalent in Toxikk, a failed arena shooter revival game. I regret every involvement I had with this game... :confounded:

    Why do you regret it? Wasn't the only problem with it the lack of players? (I've personally never played it)

    Brushing off the fact, that I suck at arena shooter genre and tried very hard gettin' into it. Yeah... nobody was playing it, didn't boom in popularity.
    A multiplayer game with no players is a dead game. Unless you add bots with highly advanced AI.
