New Weapon Idea - Retaliator and True Damage


#1

For the TL:DR people version :

  • The Retaliator works both as a shield and a drone , if you received no damage , the drone will use 45% of your current HP as a fuel

The Retaliator : [ E-M Evolution ]

  • Cant be deactivate once activated

  • Consume YOUR OWN HP if you didnt receive any damage from the previous turn.

  • No Heat Generation/Energy Consumption

  • Damage is based on percentage of damage absorbed and return fire , heat/energy damage , cooldown/regen damage will also apply :

  • 15% of damage of any kind absorbed from last turn will be the drone’s damage [Epic]

  • 30% of damage of any kind absorbed from last turn will be the drone’s damage [Legendary]

  • 45% of damage of anykind absorbed from last turn will be the drone’s damage [Mythical]

Example : ( these calculations didnt include arena buffs )

You get hit from 1 bunker shell , one magma blast and one void :

  • Damage total : 463 + 463 + 187 = 1113

  • Energy Drained : 123

  • Regen Destroyed : 17

  • Enercy Capacity Destroyed : 30

  • Heat Damage Received : 93

  • Cooldown Destroyed : 17

  • Heat Capacity Destroyed : 30

  • Resistance Destroyed [ Heat:13/Energy:13/Physical:5]

The Retaliator will return 45% of all of the above stats back at the enemy :

  • Damage total : 45% of 1113 = 500

  • Energy Drained : 45% of 123 = 55

  • Regen Destroyed : 45% of 17 = 7

  • Enercy Capacity Destroyed : 45% of 30 = 13

  • Heat Damage Received : 45% of 93 = 42

  • Cooldown Destroyed : 45% of 17 = 7

  • Heat Capacity Destroyed : 45% of 30 = 13

  • Resistance Destroyed [ Heat:5/Energy:5.8/Physical:2]

The Drone’s Special Traits :

  • Once activated , cant be deactivated

  • If no damage is done to you , the drone will consume 45% of your own HP as fuel to open fire

  • True Damage : This new kind of damage is NOT energy/phys/heat damage , meaning it will not be affected by any resistance numbers and the resistance will be completely ignored

Example :

  • No damage is done to you , 45% of your current HP will be it’s fuel
    45% of 1000 = 450 Damage

Individual Mech Type Example :

Dual Spartan and one back stabber combo’s retaliation

  • Total Physical damage : 387 + 387 + 222 = 996 damage

  • Total Resistance Drained : 15 + 15 = 30

Retaliator’s Damage :

  • True Damage : 45% of 996 = 448

  • Retaliator’s Resistance Drain : 45% of 30 = 13

Whys should you use this drone :

  • Preventing people from slapping the OPest possible weapons on their mechs as their own damage will result in their own death.

  • Punish People that abuse resist modules

Hmm, interesting concept!


#3

um what

last time i checked this was supermechs not superdrones


#4

This is an interesting concept.

But this is a drone that has super-like powers, which means the question is :

What is the Weight?

I know this drone will be useless with enemies that has sh*t weapons, but will be amazingly useful with Magma Maniacs, Physical Spartans, and even Counter-Energies.

So, I think it’s going to be 48 and above.

  • 48kg
  • 49kg
  • 50kg
  • 51kg
  • 52kg
  • 53kg
  • 54kg
  • 55kg
  • 56kg
  • 57kg
  • 58kg
  • 59kg
  • 60kg
  • Above 60kg (Post in comments)

Concept very interesting and unique, I like the idea. :grinning:

Holy!
A genius idea,at last!
This might be one of the best ideas I’ve ever read.
The mechanic of it is simply amazing.

It would also make a great strategy,as for when to activate it.If you activate it first turn,you might gamble,as your opponent might not want to fire anything at you.Take a phys for examply,in 2 turns it will attack once and have his drone open.He would do ~600 damage with that,while he can do 45% of your hp (much more,a lot when your mech has 2000+ hp) and all.Would require a lot of strategy to counter as well.It could be your most powerful weapon or a suicide item,depending on how you play/are played by your opponent.

I really like this.+1 from me.
