Huh, so I had an incredible idea ! One you surely already thought about !
I noticed the game is lacking in social functionalities, but you already know that. So I thought about a thing, clans ! Or whatever would fit best in the game’s lore. I really don’t know. I read through the lore and found out that every faction competes with the other ones so, I wonder. Anyway this is not the point. I think that it would be a great idea. Duelyst has a naturally nice and mature community, why not take advantage of this ? Clans would be a great way to socialize with other players.
But, simple clans with nothing other than being a clan is boring coughDestinycough, right ? So I thought of some nicey shiny features.
Group chat. Extremely obvious but I’m trying to make this post longer so it looks professional
Bets. Yeah, betting. Like, bet 50 gold with your opponent you’ll win ! I’d love to get spectating also. I don’t think you can right now.
Friendly Tournaments ! I heard there are some tournamments but it doesn’t seem like they’re extremely common. And it’s always better than organizing random tournaments with spreadsheets you made out of scratch and that you’re the only one to see.
And a brand new game mode ! I don’t think it’s actually needed, and highly doubt it’ll ever become real because of balancing and other issues but if any dev looks at this, please have fun imagining how it’d be !
- Conquest Mode.
- It’s pretty simple on paper. Two Generals, each controlled by a player, per team. Each team has a big Mana Crystal you must destroy to win. You could also just do it 1v1 . I just wanted to add co-op but that’d be hard to balance. The Crystal has ~35 HP. I guess also that if you kill a General, this player stops playing ? Excuse my lack of idea to balance but, as I said, maybe it’s better to keep the game wholy 1v1 . I think Yu-Gi-Oh once did that two player thing but I can’t remember. That’s off-topic anyway.
- I think this game mode should be left for “in clan” play or Clan v Clan. More than likely, the two players should be able to communicate and should go along, as it should be heavily co-op based. You don’t want to go in blind and just, rush to the Crystal.
So, those are my ideas. You can improve on them, you can steal them, you can do whatever you want I won’t sue anyone lol. Anyway, see you in-game or on the boards o/
- Conquest Mode.
