Outfit Warships


It's basically an idea for outfit housing. A warship orbiting Auraxis or drifting through the Auraxian system (w.e). Outfit members (and guests and/or members of outfit's platoons at an officer's discretion) can enter the warship and in this warship they can grab their gear, armor, form up and drop into the battlefield.

Vehicles would probably need a limitation on where they can drop down or warp in.

This idea is 100x better than uncappable bases.

Right, in a way it would be like an outfit's sanctuary.

It's funny we were talking about something similar the other night.

I love the idea of outfits being based out of:

Frigates->Destroyers->Cruisers->Battleships->Carriers->Orbital Platforms depending on outfit size/points.

Perhaps once a day or so an outfit could receive a "Tactical Insertion" which would be like an outfit-specific power where the outfit could be drop-podded in items of their choosing onto any location on the hex-grid from their ship. Or, the ship could appear in flight over the battlefield inserting the group, justifying the Titan-like ship we saw in the art for Planetside 2, and a way of showing off your outfits prestige. It also makes this "private area" a game element, not just a static piece of e-peen.

Just bloody imagine 80 guys from an outfit in an assorted variety of gear jumping into a critical par of the fray fully equipped, guns blazing. Like a HART on steroids. It's certainly more dramatic than an OS, and requires the outfit to team up and launch such a RAID.

I LOVE this IDEA!

A nice inclusion would be a strategic map where the Squad leader/Platoon leader could sketch out the assault.

"We land here, I want AMSs parked here and here, router should be launched at the same time. Once we get boots on the ground assault the base at this location. Bravo squad provide supressing fire while Alpha hacks the door open. Charlie provides support and cover during the hack."

Voted 5 stars

I love this DUST 514 image:



Would be very cool having this as part of the space element.

Re: Outfit Warships


Excellent idea but maybe with a few additional ideas from my side.

As long as they are not attack-able. Imho I don't want anything in the game to promote war between outfits as it should be about the war between the factions imo. War between outfits can be kept to special events.

Also there should be a limit to where you are able to drop into the battlefield and also the uncappable part of the continent should still be around.

You realize this is the plot from Starhawk right? Ironically it's a Sony game.

Re: Outfit Warships


what happens to a new player / new character, meaning you're not in an outfit so where is your "sanctuary?" (need to work this out if this idea is to replace the uncapable base mechanic).

Lmfao, that would be awesome and hilarious. I can imagine an outfit officer sending coordinates to another officer's/the OL's phone for them to fire an OS down.

Considering that my SMS ringtone is the INCOMING MAX UNIT voice macro, I can say I'm really open for the idea!
