A Veterancy Teching system?
So I was thinking, wouldn't it be interesting to have a faction in which the primary way of getting from tier to tier is you would have to get veterans or just kill more units?
So you would need to get specific units and unit types to veteran, upon which the 1st level onlocks T2, 2nd level tier 3, and 4th heroic level unlocks T4.
There are many ways we could develop such a system, so I'll leave it open for discussion.
I'm even unsure onh ow this could specifically work. And all its ramifications....
vote to the general Idea......
Here are several very basic ways it could work:
1. veteran unit unlocks all units of type upgrades
ie. Riffle men get vet, unlocks T2 upgrade like AP ammo for research for all riflemen
2. vet unit unlock only near by units upgrades
ie, the riffle vet only unlocks AP ammo for near by rifflemen
3. we have a limited # of units, like 3 or so, which does this for everyone
ie. A vet pred unlocks all T2 upgrades for research for all vehicles.
Please vot to the General idea, not the specific one above.
-Diversifies a faction from the others
-Allows for mild customization
-Encorages micro management
-may get frustrating of out gunned since teching up would be hard.
-makes teching up for such a faction contingent on combat effectiveness, which may be a steep learning curve.
