Friendly Fire

Would you want FF in this game? I would, it would stop a player from rushing and make sure people act smart around capital ships, because once they blow they take out any fighters near them, and any other ships get damaged by concussive hits close, and stray lasers can hit friendly ships.

depends. if it's on the ground, grenades and rockets, and turbolasers, explosions should cause causualties and fratracide. XD

Probably its going to be an on/off button to this since inexperienced players (like everyone right now ) will just blast himself out of the sky.

Actually I think it'd be pretty cool if you could pull something off like tricking 2 star destroyers to shoot at each other. I think I read something like that in one of the Rouge squadron books.


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

Current Game: First Strike
In Ground Control you could shut it off. What was annoying with said game, however, was that units didn't watch it. If you had a heavy terradyne squad and it spotted an enemy unit, it'd open fire - even if your Command APC was in the way and got blasted to shreds!

So yes to friendly fire - if the units watch it a little and only fire if the line of fire is clear. Or something like that.
