CONTEST: Unit Design

MARINES! Our victories at Sagan-1 and Ascendaar have once again cemented our reputation for being one of, if not the best military operation in the galaxy. We win the fights that nobody else dares to face. In order to maintain that reputation, we need to learn from mistakes we've made in the past and extend our pool of resources. That's why we've been granted a bigger budget for our Research and Development department. Those egg heads down in R&D know there's nothing better than experience to make the mind work. They've asked that you, our frontline soldiers, tell them what is needed. In addition, we have the Empyrean Ambassador on board, and she is going to take any recommendations you have for her people as they continue to be our great allies.

Image

If the General's briefing was unclear, R&D along with the Empyrean Ambassador is asking for a new field unit that will be added to the current ranks of our troopers.

A Soldier Unit; to fight alongside the Ranger, Sniper and Engineer

A Mecha Unit; to fight alongside the Flamewalker, Shellstorm and Brawler

An Empyrean Unit; to fight alongside the Guardian, Diplomat and Channeller

A Refinery Tower; to be built alongside the Minigun Tower, Rocket Battery and Laser Tower.

You are required to name and describe the unit, explain its purpose, state strengths and any weaknesses it may have, and, since you can't go into a battle silent, whatever catchphrase you think would sound best being yelled at our enemies. Specific statistics are not required.

Image

You have until Friday, November 24th to submit your entries. The longer period is to allow new members time to get used to taking part, and as a result of the forum being quiet to give time for people to see the thread.

All entries must be sent to me via a Private Message or they will not be valid to enter.

I will accept edits and updates on your entries up until the closing date. Please resend the entire entry and I will use your most recent submission.

I need your entire entry in one PM. Sections sent separately will not be counted.

Depending on the number of entries, units may be judged individually rather than as a full submission.

As in an ability like Grenade or Tulsa Sentry? Yes.

Can we add a little bit of lore to the units? I feel like my ideas would be misunderstood as to what they are if I don't.

Yes, but not loads. A couple of lines should suffice, not an entire backstory.

This is my first time taking part in a contest, so I'm super exited!

Also can we make a whole new unit tab? Like you have Mechs, Army, and Empyreans, can I make a whole new one, or just single units?

Also, how many entries are we allowed to make?

Just stick the wxisting tabs for the moment, so everyone has the same subject material. And ideally just the one entry.

As this mistake has been made twice, I want to reiterate that your entry should include one of each unit types. A soldier, a Mecha, an Empyrean and a tower. Not just pick one of the four.

Sorry if this was unclear.

Hey ho

I'm extending the entry date for this due to a low number of entries. So one extra week, but that's it!

Rule one of writing entries. Write it in Word/Notepad/Text edit, whatever. Don't write it in a reply box, or you might lose it.
