ARE YOU INSANE?
CAT 3 F*CKERS ARE BASE KILLER A**HOLES WHO SOLE PURPOSE IS TO DESTROY OUR SLUMS.
AND CAT 4? F*CKING CAT 4 IS A ZONE LEVEL THREAT. RIGHT BEHIND CAT 5 WHICH IS A GLOBAL LEVEL THREAT.
OH RIGHT, CAT 4 ARE SLIGHTLY TALLER THAN MR. TINY-ASS.
AND YOU WANNA SOLO THAT SH*T?

GIVE THAT SUCKER A COOKIE AND CHANGE THE ACHIEVEMENT TO
BADASS BERSERKER

*somewhere in the future in Em-8er General chat* "OMG! HALP! CAT6!". "What are you talking about there is no such thing as CAT6?.." *After 20 minutes of intense arguing and slanderous slurs the server is shutdown as the CAT5 Kai-ju succesfully destroyed every base just becouse someone mislabeled the Kai-ju's category just becouse they feel like counting up from one instead of zero* (I mean it's like starting a petition to rename Gundam Zero to Gundam One at this point in time. So let's not stir that pot just let it stew and settle in first. Also im pretty sure there was entire conversation on Discord about the categories and how CAT6 would basicly be universal threat like end of the world type of thing.. So yeah stick with the Visual book.)

But that dropship idea, i sorta wish it was like a futuristic version of the Hercules gunship with the signature angelic decoy flare pattern and everything. (Although i wouldn't mind the omniframe being able to shoot out decoy flares like that.)

Also i have had this fledgling idea for a while now.
Like if a miner team or a base is completly surrounded and is about to fall or about to be destroyed, there could be this broadcast in a certain area or the entire map or region. That would call out every available omniframe for assistance and there could be like broken base or broken pickaxe symbol on the map. "The Broken Arrow Protocol" i guess for Em-8er it would require it's own term like:"Broken Wing" *shrugs*

Why can't when you can get more from them?
LIMITATION AND OTHER RULE SET. I GUESS.

DURING INVASION, YOU CAN HAVE MULTIPLE THMPR FIGHTING ALONG IN A ZONE.
OUTSIDE OF INVASION, ONLY 1 THMPR CAN MINE (iirc)
Duration and Frequency
Invasions are always occurring as long as there are sufficient players online with only short breaks between. This split player activity between fighting in invasions, or going to zones not under attack to mine for resources to fuel the war effort. A zone under invasion cannot be mined, as all available THMRPs are pressed into battle.


THE THMPR CAN GET ATTACKED MULTIPLE TIMES DURING MINING.
Players must defend their THMPR MEK/A while increasingly difficult waves of enemies attack. The longer the mining continues, more and rarer resources are recovered. However, should the enemies overrun the players and THMPR, the resources will be lost.

Buffs can be pretty 1 sided in games, but there should be buffs relating to what you are doing or have achieved for example...
Personal buff like Lucas Arts SWBF2, have your own buffs that only affect you.
Relating to ember, once you achieve a state of an achievement you'll retain that buff like a rank. Reference.. Check it out:
http://battlefront.wikia.com/wiki/Awards

I dont like guild exclusive buffs however, a stackable Aura buff 'may' help this topic.
But, I do believe there should be guild achievement based rewards. Refering to this link:
https://wiki.plarium.com/index.php?title=TD_Clan_Achievement
The buffs should not be giant buffs.

Adding to this, personal and guild buffs
Have categories like general, combat, economy etc. Both share some of the same perks, guild achievement perks are a lot harder to obtain though, eg: (keep in mind they are both achievement based)

Economy - Refinery speed:
Personal: Rank 1: +10%
Guild: Rank 1: +12%

From the guild your personal buff will be overided adding an extra 2% as a bonus to guild teamwork from an achievement reward vice verca (whatever is the highest) eg:
guild refine 1,000/+ azurite 10,000 times.


Rewards at max rank:

Economy - Refinery speed:
Personal: Rank 10 (Max): +60%
Guild: Rank 10 (Max): +85%
(stats variable dont freak out lol)

IMO this is a fair way to reward an indervidial solo player and guilds.
Noting that guild achievements are way harder to obtain and adds guild loyalty than 'clan hoppers'.

Hope this can help :)

Gameplay healing animations anyone?
I like the hovering nanobots around fixing things while the aura colour changes around the affected area to indicate how much it has fixed e.g red = critical, orange = heavy damage, yellow = gash, green = good health

Same could be for the healer using its heal beam or something?

This is amazingly thought out. I see Grummz and the team doing the Christmas ones down the road for sure.

I just made a post about this in general then found this section so I thought I'd throw it in here too and see what people think.
In the game Tribes Ascend you have the ability to "ski" on terrain in place of a sprint. They explain it as technology in the suit that allows you to toggle friction allowing you to slide on any surface preserving momentum. Gravity still affects you however, so sliding down hill you can pick up a lot of speed while going up hill reduces speed. This movement mechanic is insanely fun and skill intensive but also intuitive and easy to pick up. It would make battles feel fluid, fast paced and intense allowing for high speed flanking maneuvers or launching yourself off a hill to get high above the enemy to rain fire from above. It also gives a unique opportunity to try abilities and weaponry that gain additional damage and/or functionality with velocity. I think this would really fit the overall feel the game is going for adding to the fast and mobile focus in combat. Also races across large areas would be a blast! What do you guys think, would this "skiing" mechanic work for EM8ER?

IN EM8ER, IT'S CALLED SKIM MODE.
BUT THERE'S A DRAWBACK. AFTER EXITING SKIM MODE, ALL ABILITY ARE ON COOLDOWN.
