What do we do, If we don’t find a match for 45 minutes, because nobody plays it, or if the losing team just wants to play against the bots and not a human opponents anymore? Leagues are basically dead now.
There should be an option for the bot-mode , but with a twist!
Bots should be based on very tough and customized builds. Why? Players need to learn from real builds, examples based on real setups and statistics and not some just some added bot bonuses.
If you need multiple builds for Secret Project, I can even provide some builds for you as well. Players will experience the full power of Secret Project side!
Only players , who have all 3 factions leveled up to rank 15 should be allowed to participate in the Leagues!
Leagues should be open 24/7 , which means no cool-down periods.
Also, provide at least 2 other game modes in Leagues randomly chosen by the Matchmaker as well!
Additional game modes:
This isn’t exactly AI-Coop in Tier 5! It’s much harder and it’s based on realism and not on fictional bot bonuses.
How to implement this?
There should be a check-box for the League’s Leader or a member of the League Team forming the squad , if you select it, you are matched against the bots.
When this happens, Leaderboards won’t be affected. Wins or losses will not count towards the rating , with the bot-mode checked. It’s like it never happened.
Before I begin, this isn’t exactly AI Co-op mode. Why?
It’s the ultimate challenge in Leagues in a bit different way. It’s meant to be end-tier content and it is, however with a twist that isn’t present in AI Co-op battles.
Realism based on real builds with full utilization of available bonuses!
I prefer realism over AI Co-op bot bonuses, like 100% damage increased and durability, etc.
People would actually learn how to play better against real time enemies in such way, because of real-time setups or builds, that can be used.
It would also promote Secret Projects ships and their roles as well. Combined with my Token suggestion, they would become more known and desired as well, which brings more $$$!
Remember, not every bot needs to be quipped with the same slot builds, weapons and modules, etc.
There should be no same builds all over again, which means different slot configurations.
Bot rules :
all bots are customized Secret Project ships
all bots are using a total of 4 ships for each (4 x 5 = 20 ships in ships’ slots)
bots are using full advantage of the implant system (15 implants selected)
all bots are using an advantage of ranked level bonuses (rank 2, 4 and 8) - Elite synergy level
all bots are using Mark 4 and/or Mark 5 weapons and modules
bots also have specific passive Boosters applied via additional devices (credit boosters only)
bots can also use exclusive Workshop modules (A1MA, Reverse Thruster, special ammunition and missiles, etc.)
Same penalties are applied for bots, when using free aim, or when firing from behind, reduced speed and damage, etc.
Bots will only have Destroyers, if the opposing team has them and the bots will always match the number of Destroyers with the opposing team.
If there are no Destroyers in the opposing team, then none of the bots will use them.
( Warning :I do not know, what will happen, if you include this as well)
Optional: (bot bonuses)
I DO NOT RECOMMEND adding ranked bonuses for bots, this should stay in the AI Co-op mode only.
all bots have an additional +100% damage boost
all bots have an additional +100% hull and shield hit-points
