Ground Combat Question
08-11-2009, 01:45 AM
Will the personal force field that ground combatants have be in any way customizible or augmentable?
Will players be able to use those factors to create a situation where they are able to shrug off dozens of rounds of enemy fire?
I ask because with the existence of personal force fields seems to create a ground combat situation more like standard MMOs and less like anything that I've ever seen on screen. You'll have guys with augmented shields "Tanks", guys with high skills and heavy weapons "DPS", and Medics with these new ranged tri-corders "Healers".
Cryptic broke the MMO trinity in City of Heroes. Is it looking to reestablish the holy MMO trinity with STO?
