Alternative weapon selections for ships

Published on Friday, November 18, 2016 By cwrightc84 In Founders Starbase

Right now we know that we have about 15 ships for super melee.  If stardock is constrained on resources to create more, I propose alternative weapon selections for each ship.

As an example the alternate weapon set for the human cruiser would say replace the primary nuke missile with a forward laser and add a temporary shield like the sc2 yehat terminator instead of the point defense for the secondary.

By doing this you can milk 2 different playstyles out of every ship and alien model.  Without creating wholly new alien races an ships the number of playstyles jumps to 30 instead of the limited 15.

I think this is lower cost solution to adding more play diversity with lesser resources.
