Grunts, Jackals, and Hunters should be infectable. In fact, there shouldn't be a single unit that is uninfectable.
I take it you never played a halo FPS game or read a halo book then?
Shields should reflect Infection forms, making Wraiths very effective against flood, as well as Ghosts and Wraiths. Flamethrowers, on the other hand, should be the be-all-end-all against Infection forms, which they already do magnifigantly. They would quickly destroy Infection Forms with flame, which would have residual and devastating effects on nearby infection forms.
To be technical, they don't really infect the vehicles, they infect the driver and use the knowledge they gained to control the vehicle. Ghosts shouldn't have shields anyway. It would be difficult to infect a wraith, as the flood form would have to take out the door on top to get to the driver.
Thrasher would serve as a great anti-veichle unit, and should be the only flood Veichle.
flood don't have vehicles, only infantry. They may infect vehicles though. Which is also a controversity as to why they can't be a part of the already established game mechanics.
Stalker forms (pure form type) would serve as great anti-infantry. They could be equipped with a secondary attack that eats an enemy and restores health, which could be upgraded to have a large lunge attack, which would also allow it to attack air unit. This could, interstingly enough, bring a triangle to the Anti-Infantry units: Jackals beats Flamers beats Stalkers beats Jackals.
The flood don't "eat", they infect. So, that really can't work.
Bombers and Thrashers should be tier 2.
bombers shouldn't be in, nor any flying type creature as a matter of fact.
Dominant Will? Didn't see this.
BTW I skimmed. Assuming this is related to the first two (i was the last person to read the entire thing w00t!). This weekend i might due a Rot style post to this thread, for old times sake x)
Unless you can find some witty comic strips to relate to the posts, and witty comebacks, you can't do a Rot style post.
I'll do my full post later, but Felix, it's me TNine.
Felix, why you always gotta be negative.
I think it's a bad idea that all infantry get infected, the way I have it is that only the marines, flamethrowers, grunts (the elite), honor guards and brutes can get infected. That may seem unbalanced in how more mainstream UNSC units can get infected than Covie, but the UNSC got worthogs at the begining along with non-infectable unique units at the begining of the game, so it's balanced. I like the idea of Infection Forms being weaker vs. sheilds, it'll make PoR players want to get the personal sheild upgrade for the houor guards, but I never intended on letting Infection Forms infect vehicles, although there is a power that can do that in the Central Intelligence. Yes, flamethrowers are very good vs infection forms, I'd say a flamethrower can only get infected if like 4 or 5 infection forms attack one flamethrower squad at the same time.
Felix is right, technically the Flood don't have vehicles, so I split it into Light units, Heavy units and Flying units. The Heavy units are like the vehicles, there are 3 of them and the Thrasher is one of them and yes it was anti-vehicle, it also had a nifty power.
Thanks for reminding me that they were called Stalker Forms, I was just calling them spider things, lol. Yeah, even though the Stalker forms are good agenst infantry, they're still easy to beat, that's because their true role is anti air as a Ranged Form, their Y ability is to lockdown like a Cobra and become a Ranged form who super effective against air craft, like a Wolverine. I don't like the idea of eating an enemy to get health, the Juggernaut already has a similar power and their kinda small to do that. Plus, infection forms, which will be numerous, take care of most infantry.
I wanted the bomber and thrashers in tier 1 becasue before hand the Flood really have nothing good against vehicles, unless you get tricky with the carrier forms, but mabey your right.
Feel free to make your own version of a Flood faction, don't let Felix discourage you, mabey you can make a better one than mine and the Robot employees might consider it.
