I am hoping somebody from the company could answer a few questions. I will be picking up my Collectors Edition Preorder today for Xbox One. First time I have fully paid off a preorder before it came out. I believe I had it paid off back in January.
My first and big main question is are there bots or will you be able to add bots? I believe this is going to be a huge factor on the games popularity and life. I hate to say this but Rocket League would be the way to do bots. You can play them offline and online to fill in missing players in all non ranked matches. It still gives you experience or points but it is only half of what you would earn online.
Are you taking ideas for maps, characters and modes? I have a few ideas.
In this mode you make a map for this where the world slowly sinks into water and there will be one high point that only one person will be able to be on. The last person alive wins the round but besides the world slowly sinking there would be random disasters happening like a tornado, blizzard (which would slow you down a lot), lightning strikes, etc, so you are never safe in one spot.
Team Capture the Flag
Just like all other Capture the flag modes for other games. Two flags and bases. Capture the opponents and bring it back to your base.
Like Form Ball but in a actually hockey rink. The nets would not be in the wall so the puck can go around the net. This could set up awesome passes over the net. It would neat to be able to "check" a Deformer through the glass and into the stands. If a puck goes out of play then it would reset the glass and the puck would drop back down at center ice. You could have the net NHL has behind the goalies so the puck will drop back down into play. You wouldn't be able to pick up the puck but the different Deformers would make a strategy for setting up a team. A shooter wouldn't hit the puck hard but could play from a distance, aka Sniper. A throw based character would be more like a defenseman who can check hard but has a ok shot and a character that charges would be the fast slap shot guy.
I got more ideas I would love to float but I believe the more modes you have the more you can attract people. And for people who have bad internet due to where they live or if they just aren't that good and still want to enjoy the game bots with different difficulty would give this game a very long life! I hope to hear back more on this.
