Some minor suggestions for Multiplayer

[ Edited ]
20 replies 233 views Edited Sep 5, 2013
Just a few minor ideas to make multiplayer even better, most of which are gameplay suggestions.

• The ability to mark a downed enemy. The player who marks the downed enemy could say something like,"Hey look over there, he's down". This could help a lot with the Interrogation mode.

• The ability to pick up your own placed bombs.

• Do not display names above enemies. This is really annoying, many times I'd be hinding from the enemy and as soon as they look in my general direction, if just a centimetre of my head/ hat is poking out it shows my names above my head and then the enemy just chucks a molotov at me and walks away.

• (Forget this one) Unable to be heard by the enemies' listen mode while you crouch walk very slowly. Or at least make it extremely hard to see.

Awesome suggestions, especially the no nametags for enemies... I find it really weird that the enemy is able to spot me by my nametag in instances where I am behind cover....

 

If I may add a few to your list.. (these have been stated before but a reminder is always nice)

 

Ability to mark bombs (15pts)

Points for destroying enemy bombs (10pts)

Points for assisting a revive (50pts)

Awesome... would love to see these in a patch or something :smileyvery-happy:.

 

The last suggestion is the same as Covert Training 2 though.

If he can see your name, you can be shot. Use deeper cover.



The Biggest Lies

5.) The hats aren't the surprise.
4.) Mods knows what they're doing.
3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.
1.) The player pool will be consolidated.

Still doesn't change the fact that the enemy knows where you are at.

Those are not "minor" changes. At least from a programming or design standpoint.

Right, jawa, but it means you can be seen, and when you look at someone who can be seen, you see their name.

I admit, I sit inn deep cover and pan my camera around locations, taking for name tags.

Take deeper covert our be seen.

I thought they were great ideas.
Marking downed enemies, picking up your own bombs, no name tags (or harder to pick up), and points for marking bombs, shooting bombs, and assisting revives.
I'm not sure why this stuff wasn't included at launch. Seems basic.
I still love the game though. Loading up TLoU right now.
