‘Magical Football’ / rocket league (not played rocket league)
If you had a None fatal game where skills could be used on a ball to do stuff(*1), and maybe Players can get KD, Stunned and such but not take damage (maybe no ccs on player?). Well you have hell of a game with no feeling of self defeat (cus you don’t die, it’s not skill gear checking in that way)
(Psychology; that opens the game up to other players and become a stepping stone to more competitive BDO content -some of you CM see in in BA with the Muscian and such, crossing that gap - well be a lot easyer if the game had the tools and functions)
Lore; well it’s a magical ball, maybe it’s the black spirit and 2 team are taking revenge on it :P
Function; Get this magical ball over a line on the opponent side and score a point.
Concept; you now have a social, not PvP in the traditional sense, team based game.
You could couple this with its own arena like we have with BA, but this one has a stage for a band and other structures that are suitable for player driven event.
You can access this new area as you do BA, so now you have a social hub that is not BA, that can be accessed on demand.
It's not just magical football, that's the focal part, with all this social stuff on the side. Allowing for more music and events to happen without having to pick and advertise a location and sever.
Stun- would stop the ball dead, in the air. Zero velocity and after the stun it drops to the floor
Stiff- Reduced the velocity energy of the ball (goal keeper shai with their bongos :P)
Float – Add upward velocity
Slow – slows the ball (reduce slow duration for game play liveliness)
Freeze – Stop the ball and then the freeze end, ball pings of in RNG direction
Knockback – add velocity in opposite vector to attack
KD – smashes the ball to the ground and set velocity to zero
Grab - you grab the ball – that need some thought: P maybe some effort to make that really good.. zerks become OP football meta :P
Look at the fun that could be had here!!!
