As much as I’d love to see some different factions with completely overhauled units, I just can’t see them doing it. They’d have to make everything new, which they’ve only done 2 or 3 new units per DLC leader.

With Johnson they had the ability to redo all of the units for the UNSC and make them look like the newer UNSC stuff, instead of the pseudo-new stuff that was constructed using the SoF’s old manufacturing systems with Isabel’s data. This would have opened the avenue for any leader in the modern UNSC post-Johnson (Lord Hood, Lasky, Blue Team, etc.).

My concern is if they do make a newer UNSC leader, it’s going to feel out of place. If Lord Hood or Lasky don’t have access to the Mantis because it’s Johnson’s unique unit, then it’d hardly make sense.

I’d like to see a new faction too. I also enjoy creating ideas on games. An overall I don’t expect my ideas to be used, but I like to look forward to maybe seeing that I maybe inspired someone to do a similar concept.

Not gonna happen there won’t be another faction

As I said, I don’t expect my ideas to actually be of use.

Anyhow, could people actually stay on topic, an critique the idea at hand, not talk about what’s will or won’t happen…

These forums seem.much worse than LOL’s an I didn’t think that possible lmao

Don’t mind most of these suggestions, but having a scout unit with high damage against buildings is a terrible idea. People would abuse the heck out of that.

I started reading this I thought, this will be some chumps dream. After looking at your stuff, it’s actually pretty thoughtful and honestly sounds really cool.
That being said the reason I think people are saying “it will never happen”, is ,cause it won’t. Not cause it’s a bad idea, just cause 343 won’t put that money into the game, which does suck. We’re pragmatic on these forums. Like stuff that is plausible and possible. Want a game that works and has a variety of strategies.
Cool idea and like some of the unit speciallties though. Maybe like jackels could be faster infantry for banished? Speedy infantry and telport ideas way solid👌

Hmmm I see your point in that. Thanks for the insight. I’ll go back when I have the time an revise that. Thanks for the unput

Thank you for the critique. An I know it won’t happen, but I hope at least for future heros an maybe games some of my ideas could help influence things.

An I’m glad ya enjoyed some of my traits for infiltry an took the time to notice the effort. I know some may seem imbalanced with low supply cost. I tried to counter that with higher energy cost, till late game. I also think making elites hackles or snipers faster would help balance them a bit more in terms of changes.

I think the Prometheans should stay NPC and prevent the game from getting cluttered and confusing. The ONLY faction that should be added and playable is the flood. Simply because it would be epic.

Prometheans I think make just as much sense because they were made to combat the flood.I’ve actually been working on a flood leader though based around the plant from halo 2. Once I’m done figuring out how to implement their charectoristics into something worth while I’ll be posting the idea. I also have a prophet an arbitor, as well as master chief idea I’m working on. As I said I enjoy creating things for games, for fun an to inspire new ideas.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I always champion creativity. I just think that if too many elements are added to either a game or film it gets muddled. If they were going to do a longer campaign DLC then yeah I think the Prometheans should be added but two missions isn’t enough to add a whole new faction. It’s why as much as I hope they do I doubt the flood will be added either.
