The Invasion mechanic.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This new multiplayer mechanic will annoy the fuck out of people for those who didn't turned off the invasion mode. And what i like about this new multiplayer mechanic, this could be the best mechanic to annoy and troll a lot of players for the shits and giggles! So, just turned off the invasion mode so no one will disturbed your single player campaign experience. Tho, I rather prefer multiplayer story campaign, fighting against the forces of hell with your friends ala Contra! :D

Given people's reaction to the mechanic that would be a silly thing to do. They're not dumb, and the game is not done, so no, I don't think it will be on by default.

I think it should be on by default. What's the point of creating such a mechanic if only a small percentage of the playerbase can even be reached with it?

 

Please elaborate what you mean by trolling. At the end of the day it's more akin to "an unexpected miniboss", and I'm sure there will be a reason to kill players who invade, such as a points system etc. If your perception of trolling is "having a perfectly reasonable encounter beat you because you're bad at the game" then you need to relearn the term.

 

Again, to reinforce what I'm saying here - the invaders will be much worse off than you, since they'll be a demon of some kind, such as a Revenant or Mancubus - think about it for a second, you, a fully equipped Doom Slayer with advanced movement techniques, powerful weaponry which can cover just about every situation, vs a couple of demons with the equivalent of "better AI". Yeah, no brainer.

 

Also you could just chainsaw them, heh.

I don't see too grievous problems of griefing, it's just a sort of PvP experience, but diluted. I think the doomslayer will still have a big edge. 

I'm absolutely sure players will find ways to grief in the beginning, but few patches should solve the problem.

I have my shitty experienced with this kind of mechanic before, Players would just screwing around with you instead of playing it serious. Don't know probably i suck it~ p

Also, i wonder if the demon selection will be randomized. it would be suck if you play as a slow moving zombie! XD

Would be cool if you could stalk the player across the level.

Guess Invasion is only for private servers. So you could just pick a couple friends for that, so getting stalked by a stranger won't be possible.

 

Speaking of stalking, was there any instance where some player got stalked by another in Doom???

I would think it's turned off by default to avoid this tho

I would think it's turned on by default or they wouldn't add it to the game at all.

I take it you've not played Dark Souls, which has this exact mechanic?  It works well in that game, and doesn't limit you to friends only (though I think there might be the option to do something of that sort, I think?)

I don't think the invaders will have the power over the Doomslayer like the Demons do in MP (what would suck).  There will be of course players that are skilled enough to slaughter absolute noobs;   I just hope in those instances they can't grief the same player over and over again.  My bet is that you get one try (kill or be killed) then have to move on to the next player.

 

As for demon selection, something tells me you get to pick your demon and maybe even a sub skin/class.  That way we can play as one of the D4 mancubi if we choose too.  They might even add in the prowler and harvester as well.  We will know more soon.

The game will probably give the player a prompt to enable/disable invasion when they start their campaign for the first time. After that, they can turn it on or off at any time.

I didn't mean it in a creepy way. Imagine playing as a fragile Imp and you use hit and run tactics to kill the player. You hide, follow the player around and when you see an opportunity you throw a fireball and then run away to any part of the level.
