Design-A-Troop Competition! (WEEK 4: Name and Traits!)
#2

My proposition (Fish Eater, Water Link, Armored, so the 2nd one) is:

  • to make this troop tanky enough to stay in 1st slot (ie Armored). The spell (ie Choose a colour. Destroy 8 gems of the chosen colour. Deal [magic+something] true damage to each enemy of that colour.) could misfired and so, some tankness is appreciate in case of possible skull given to the AI :wink: Stoneskin is another choice, but the 3-traits combinaison would have been too great for an Epic troop.
  • to add some synergy with other aquatic troops and because this troop could be in 1st slot, so it’s cool to have a attack booster against Submerged troop (ie Fish Eater)
  • Water Link, for more synergy with Blackhawk troops (main color is Blue) and Links are always nice :slight_smile:

Glad I was given credit for Shocktops, even though once we were at the naming suggestion stage I was not first to post. I did post shocktopus first but it was not yet at that stage of voting so I wasn’t sure I’d get credit.


#4

I think we should get some more submerge-using troops into the game before we start adding anti-submerge effects :stuck_out_tongue: I also think “[effect] when matching [color]” is an underused trait structure with a lot of potential.

@Saltypatra it may be good to put the winning spell text in your first post here, so people can easily see what the traits will be attached to.


#5

The only traits which have this trigger are unique ones. So on, not compatible with an Epic troop :slight_smile: .
It’s still possible to make him a Legendary troop.


#6

Thanks everyone that voted on S.Q.U.I.D so far.
Took a while to come up with that name, certainly not as easy as Jack Lumber or Mufferfish.

As for traits, they just made a lot of sense to me and the troop’s ability seems powerful enough for an epic.


#7

Thanks for the votes people! I am honored to be on both these votes. However I think the Shocktopus name and bjb1990s trait ideas gonna win, and I am fine with that. :slight_smile:


#8

Zelarith’s trait suggestion is pretty powerful, it gains 2 armor and 1 life every 4-5times. And immunity to freeze which synergizes with getting multiple 4-5times going. It’s the best option IMO


#9

Sorry, brudda, but Stoneskin is a lot stronger than these two traits combined together. Immunity to freeze seems okay tho.


#10

I think thare are enough stoneskins in the game already, though not many that use green mana.

I always thought stoneskin to be one of the cheapest traits around. Once you give it to a troop, it makes the troop usable, but it also becomes the core reason to ever use said troop. That’s just how I feel.


#11

Bjb’s traits scare me. Immune to stun + entangle on skulls + 50% armor. That sounds really annoying. It’s like a more obnoxious Forest Troll at that point.


#12

Thanks to everyone that has voted on G.L.O.:joy:

You Guys/Girls/Other are the best.


#13

I am honored to be a finalist!
