Re: The 5th God is Apollo - The Truth

Imagine aligning to Apollo and playing on the Spartan side during the fall of Troy level. You would be tasked with destroying a statue of your god :smileyvery-happy:

I keep repeating this, sigh.

BOWS WOULD BE OP. SERIOUSLY. Think running away is annoying? What about someone running away WHILE SHOOTING AT YOU AT THE SAME TIME.

4th weapon class are gauntlets. They confirmed it in one of the dev videos.

Great points on Apollo being the 5th allegiance though.

Pretty idea :smileyhappy: but that leaves one more question: In one of the videos, when it's been maded the Rotunda of Olympus, the 5ft God wear a Shield... so what about that shield?

Helios is the original sun god but the greeks merged his role with apollo over time (probably couldnt afford all the double sacrifices haha!)

 

>But apollo is generally not considered the god of the sun at this point

Very convincing point, although I feel as though gauntlets would be a perfect addition as the next weapon.

 

Sure bows would add a new dynamic to the game, but I feel like they would either be incredibly overpowered or underpowered. Balancing them effectively would be a difficult thing to do considering every weapon currently is based on melee attacks and combat.

**bleep** bows too, honestly ow terrible would that be to have some **bleep**got kiting you across the map with a bow. Ranged weapons don't belong in this game.
