This might be a horrible idea but here goes:
Ok, so my idea would be a special item called a reflector, that would weigh 30kg.
It would be placable in the same section of items as drone, hook, etc. It would take a turn to activate just like a drone.
There would be 3 versions of it, one for each damage type. The type of reflector only functions with its corresponding damage type. For example, energy reflector would only function with energy damage.
It would take a certain percentage of the damage you take and put that on to the other mech.
This would not reduce any damage done to you.
Anway, here are the stats:
Common-rare version stats
Common lvl1: 5%
Common lvl10: 7%
Rare lvl1: 8%
Rare lvl 20: 10%
Epic-mythical version stats:
Epic lvl1: 11%
Legendary lvl1: 15%
Legendary lvl40: 19%
Mythical lvl1 20%
Mythical lvl 50: 26%
Any decimals would be rounded up to the nearest 1 damage
This is how the damage would be dealt:
The reflector will take the percentage of each individual hit of the oppenents turn, add those together, and at the very end of the oppenent mechs turn, fire and do that damage.
For example, You have a max mythical reflector, you go first, you activate the reflector on your first turn.
Then the opponent goes, he hits you with 2 weapons, each one doing 120 damage. The total damage output would be 26% of 120+ 26% of 120, or 31.2+31.2
This would equal 62.4, which would round up to 63 damage.
He fires his weapons, does his damage, and then before you make your first move, the reflector fires, doing 63 damage. Note that the reflector firing is the first thing that happens on your turn. If you die, then you do not go into your turn, so the reflector does not fire. This prevents both players dying at same time.
Side note: If both mechs have reflectors, the reflector will not consider and deal damage from the opponents reflector.
So, the stats would all have the same percentages for the energy, heat and physical versions.
I created this as like a way to help counter 1 type of mech.
- Great Idea
- Good, I have some weight/stat change ideas (comment them)
