# 1 BO's in Raid-a-sodes?
04-15-2010, 10:41 AM
Are there plans to allow you to bring 1 or all BO's in addition to your 5 man group to something like Infected, cure or KIt? It seems odd that you spend time working on them and in the "endgame" they are quite meaningless, beyond space abilities, which is a small part of those so far. Maybe this can be included in the difficulty scaling but just wondering where cryptic stands on this.

oh to be clear i am not talking replacing real players with your BO's.

That's actually a pretty cool idea that I haven't heard before. A 5 man STF but each player can bring down one BO and make it a 10 man party overall. I like that idea. Biggest issue is that the BO AI is stilll pretty dumb and it would be an epic fail if you have to do something like platform jumping or not rush forward and agrro many mobs. Need to work on the AI I think first but I do like the idea!

Thats supposed to be a joke, isn't it?
Even security escorts are better at jumping than some players...

I'd prefer single STF style mission myself There could easy mode and hard mode for challanges.

it would be nice if each player was allowed to bring their own "first officer" along for the mission or something..

I'd like to see this as a feature where if the 5 man team loses a member the leader could request support from a BO to fill the missing spot. Of course, nothing can replace a live player, but something is better than nothing.

No it's not a joke. My BOs can't even follow me through underground tunnels or on bases. The BO AI is DUMB!

This would be great as we lost a player to DC in Infected and they never came back. Would have been great to pick up one BO to help throw down some fire and take some shots. But the problem is they attack when you don't want to....of course other players may do that also....
