Dragon Slayer Gamemode

Postby alias on Sat Oct 04, 2008 8:31 am

Note, this gamemode (and its maps) is still a work in progress by Paranojek at FPSB

This new "gamemode" is called the dragon slayer. Once the map starts both teams receives dragons which flies around the spawn. It has an independent sentrygun inside his sasha-body. The first team to slay the opposing team dragon wins. To kill the dragon you need to hurt his head. It's the only vulnerable part of his body. You can jump on your dragon to fly with him and protect him. The dragon has a lot of health points so it won't be so easy to kill him(1 uber won't be probably enough). You can't hurt your dragon, only the opposing team can.

Myself i wonder how the gamemode will be. I guess snipers could be a bit overpowered if the dragon flies too high.
Now on the workshop!

I dont know, it sounds odd. Everybody is just going to look up in the air until an enemy pyro surprises them all. Is there a way to control where the dragon flies to? Like one driver? Then it would be cool. It reminds me a bit of the kite-destroying game from the kite runner book and movie.

Only the mapper can control the dragon. This means it moves in a fixed route, so its not possible to hide it. And also... it has a sentry on it, i think that also makes his position known

Or here's a good idea that people keep forgetting: Snipers can be killed by other snipers OR spys, so if a sniper keeps killing you or damaging the dragon then take him out!
