I have an idea that I think won't happen, but here it goes any way:

What if there was a type of game like regicide, called Heroic Epic, or something to that extent. Instead of having a really weak king, you have a super hero, with a name. They woud be like the exact opposite of a king. Since Greek is my strong point, I will use them as an example.

At the beginning of the game, you choose your god as normal, but you also get to select your hero unit. For the Greeks you get a choice of Perseus, Heracles, and Theseus.

Perseus would be a fast unit that could fly, but has super low HP and below average armor. Perseus has the power to fly because he had possession of Hermes' winged sandals. The low HP and armor would help balance his high evasive talents. Also, for a certain amount of favor he can turn invisible for a certain amount of time, because he wore Hades' helmet of invisibilty. He bore the shield of Athena also.

Heracles would have a high melee attack and super high pierce armor. He was born with immense strength and wore the Nemean lion's fur as armor, because nothing made by man could pierce it, hence the high pierce armor. He would have to be the slowest unit of the 3 though, this would help balance.

Theseus would be an all-around strong unit. He never had a weakness, but never had a defining strength either, except for his courage. He would be quicker than Heracles, but slower than Perseus.

The point of the game is to slay your opponents hero before they can kill yours. Normal MUs and god-powers would still be in the game.

Any constructive crticism or other ideas welcome.

Solid.

Another idea for this is not being able to make more Heros, you can only have the one you start with (Perseus, Heracles, and Theseus).
It will make MUs strong in this type of game so you would have to counter with your own MUs and with your special Hero.
I dunno though... my idea might make it one of the less played ways of playing, but yet again nobody really played regicide in AoK so this alittle bit of changing might help get people intrested in it and then eventually get more people playing it.

What do you think?

Yeah, I forgot the part about it being the only hero you get the whole game. Good point. If it is implemented, I would hope it would be popular, I'd at least play it.

I don't have any ideas for who could be the three heroes for Egypt though. The Norse could have Beowulf and Sigurd (I think that is is name), but a third hero escapes me. Anywho, post your ideas. Please?

Yay! The master(ess?) of sigs has made a new one! Behold! Smileyshelper's new sig!
*wishes that smileyshelper would post the code he/she used for the first three lines of the sig*

Oh, and for the topic...Put that idea along with the other ideas for games like Capture the Flag! Another great game idea!

Maybe there could be a cheat version of this type of game where instead of real mythological units as your hero, you get cheat units, like nile penguins or FPHs.

A problem with that would be just say you had weak flying
guy perusus(was that his name again) your civ would have a terrible weakness vs MU'S but otherwise it sounds great

!

This is a good idea, and you guys turned it into another sig thread! HEADS WILL ROLL! BTW, like my new sig?

jduderocks:

Yeah, that would be a problem, but maybe MUs will have other weaknesses besides just heroes.

Just imagine all those sig replies were 'tops'. Would you be angry then? It's basically the same thing.

As for your idea, I like it quite a bit, it'd make Shimo a lot more fun... instead of capturing a weak stupid unit like the King and just walling it in you'd have to actually have guards watch the hero/king guy. It makes life hard on the capturer, but as I find myself losing more often than not I think it's a great improvement.

hey, good ideas, insane cow! Nice new sig by the way But it wouldeeb really unbalanced, because you could just run Heracles into the town and waste them if he was that strong... maybe have high defensive buidlings to start, too

Well, IV1066, if you look at the tiny text, you can see I was joking, because I had changed my own sig also.

As for the Heracles rush, you can just freeze or turn him to stone too, which is what makes Perseus valuable because he can evade those attacks, instead of fighting them off like Heracles. Heracles will be the slowest unit, even if he wasn't that slow in myths. That is the only way I can think of balancing it because he MUST fight off attackers because he can't evade them. Sure, you can stick him in the heart of battle and have him takeout units left-n-right, but when his HP gets low, you can't get him out of the battle. Get it?
