You can already do that?

Only in retribution mode. For some reason.

Randomization, only you get to plant it instead of it happening around the crate.

It still exists ! :wink:

However here is another proposal :

- cool weather : the cloud hoovers the souls on ground. It gets bigger and gains density each time it grabs a soul. At its beginning it is a nice looking cloud then finally it ends as a storm cloud. Once it is full of souls (300 souls ?) it discharges a huge electrical storm on earth and then vanishes. Zone effect.

Flash flooding: Water from the little ponds 'n' stuff rise and sweep Mutliwinians away.

Egowinian: Directly (and temporarily, max 30 seconds) control a choosen MWG on the battlefield in FPS perspective, maybe with invulnerability, improved speed and laser range to make it worth the time wasted.
right click --> laser
left click --> grenade
c --> return to normal game control before 30 seconds are over, ending all of the powerup's effects

A bad variant could force you into a random MWG for a shorter time, maybe 15 seconds, making you lose control of the game for that time.

Haha, somehow I lol'd on this one. This one would be hilarious. One DOM game I got wasted in the first five minutes and toward the end I had three evil forests in a row. A whole island covered with trees... then I got airstrike... it took out every MW... even the spawn operators.

Kamikaze/Courage/Hero - When applied to a group of Multiwinians, the affected MWGs no longer have fear. Rather than avoid danger, they will run guns (lasers?) blazing.

Great if combined with:
Hot Feat
Shields
Subversion
Rage


EMP - Can disable solar panals/turrets/armours/squads/spawn points/laser fence/trunk port(?) for 10-20 seconds. After time period seconds, devices return back to normal function (unless device was destroyed, obviously). Would effect any team in the radius of the EMP, not just enemies.

Would be very useful in Blitzkrieg, or in any other game mode, when trying to take out a turret or capture a spawn point. Might be a tad overpowered.

Strafing Run - instead of an Airstrike with bombs, the player drags a line out on the ground, along which a squadron of Fighters (Bombers with lasers, essentially) flys, rapid-firing away. Useful in ASLT if the enemy hordes are too numerous and spread out to be really hurt by an airstrike on a single point.

Walk through walls - should be self explanatory, pick a group of DGs and they can pass through fences for a short time. Should perhaps be called "David Copperfield", but IV would probably get sued for using a trademarked name...

Other possible names - "Firewall down", "Drillbit", "Penetration test"...?

Nice and short, but (call me childish) I still prefer penetration test... :roll:

Having a power up so an eliminated player is able to get back into the fight !

Randomizer is not enough ;)

Eliminated player took back 2 spawn points after he got some troops with randomizer :shock:
