Two questions:
1. Renaming abilities?
2. If an ability gets sufficient votes, will it be in the next poll?

Sure. If it wins I'll have a poll for what it can be named. I'll take any suggestions because I dislike naming things.

The self-destruct was almost called "Shell Destruct" by the way. :P

Mm, perhaps I went a bit overboard on that. I'll try to balance the futurism of the abilities on the following polls.

I have a request with the art style of the tower, please don't make it too mech like but instead put either a red/bloodshell theme or dark knight armor style

I'm voting for Nanites because they sound very useful and original, and can partially make up for the fact that our dude can only block one enemy at a time. An AoE attack plus the ability to make damaged enemies into walking damage dispensers sounds like it could result in untold damage. Maybe even strategically let an infected enemy past to act as a sort of bomb?
For the kingdom!

I’m going with Nanites Raid. These other abilities aren’t very appealing to me at all. Can we have a 48 hr. break for suggestions before the next ability poll is put up?

Claw hammers sounds like good stun CC, kind of like the blast furnace, I'm assuming?

Bioshell be like big, scary Bloodshell (bigger than KRF counterpart), but infused with vile magic and tainted technology that make its shell a charred black color. Lines of red run across the shell hinting at previous dissection and internal improvement, also pulsing when using abilities.

Thank god we'll be voting on it instead of having tantrums about a fictional tower.

Sorry for the delay everyone. The polls can now resume as normal. This one will be for the second ability. I’ve taken all of the posts made into consideration, so hopefully these are more interesting to Ninja and also not too futuristic for RaZor’s tastes.

This one will last two days as well. I’m not sure exactly what I’ll vote on yet, myself, so I’ll wait and see other people’s reasoning for their own choices to see if that helps sway me.

I'm choosing the boiling water AoE. It looks like a really cool way to incorporate the area damage aspect of the Bloodshell tower, and I like the touch of the crab getting cooked if you wait too long. :lol: One suggestion I have for the animation is the Bioshell using a water cannon like Karkinos rather than just summoning the water.

I would love that! I could try to whip up designs as well, though my work will stick out like a sore thumb next to your designs. :lol:

We won’t have a poll for appearance until at least a week from now, so that should be enough time for at least 5 designs, right?

No. Bloodshells are deep devils, that summon water from the ocean

I pick boiling water because the self boil sounds like a minor disadvantage that makes bioshells a "pro player" tower like the battlemech since it requires micromanagement. I agree with BLOODSHELLS because i think the fact the bioshells summon water fits my bloodtech/dark knight styled design

So since it looks like the boiling ability is going to win, our current abilities are Nanite Raid, making enemies deal extra AoE damage when attacked, and "Boiling Blast", which melts resistances.
Making Nanite Raid deal physical damage to better complement "Boiling Blast" would be interesting.

As for ability #3, I feel it should be defensive, considering Bloodshells are primarily defensive and we lack any defensive abilities.
