I calculate since Tanya uses an anime-esqe  camo it will be an sexy anime adult to balance out the little anime girl hero camos.

 

Possible names could be Kuvira or Octopussy

I hope there will be a hero like Yuri Prime except for lacking psychic blast.

Cause instant building capture from long range is awesome.

I stand by Australia still. We never have any infighting in the allied faction.. it's always Russia (EX: Yuri, China, etc). It'd be nice to see Australia just branch away from the pacific front for what ever reason.

Also who ever suggested Megalodon I really like that as the sides name, or maybe a group within it like scorpion cell

I remember that when it was announced that chaos tech will be removed from Epsilon, it was also said that it would re-appear eventually in the arsenal of a new fraction. Here is my proposal:

 

Name: Siren

Weapon: chaos warhead sniper rifle (similar to Virus' gun but with chaos effect, should also do damage instead of chaos effect on chaos-immune infantry and vehicles)

Secondary weapon: chaos gas deploy thingy (like Chaos drone, but preferably with a greater range).

Abilities: stealth detection, swimming (obviously, duh)

Personality: well... we have a shy Yunru, a psychotic Libra, and the sherambo Tanya. I think this heroine, with the name and abilities I suggest should probably make references to seduction/ be seducive in general.

It should be a man trying to do a seductive woman's voice  :trickydick:  :crazed:

A bit late, but I just noticed the new faction trailer.  Well, that's going to make Act 2 a bit more complicated!

 

Musing on the new faction's nature:

 

I don't know why, but my thoughts are that it may be connected to Twisted Insurrection.  I mean, GDI 08 has Yuri escaping through a chronosphere... who's to say the Yuri of Mental Omega isn't one and the same?  It would explain where Epsilon's Driller APCs came from (conceptwise at least).  Not to mention the stealth technology used in Epsilon's harvesters and the Shadow Tanks.

...And who's to say that someone... or something can't follow him?  The new faction has laser fencing that looks suspiciously like the deployed Nod Web Spider, and in terms of general colour scheme, I can't help but think Globotech.  Those powersuited infantry in particular give me a Globotech vibe.  Although admittedly Globotech never used mechs or whatever those monster ground assault vehicles are.

  There's supposedly no time travel involved... but that doesn't automatically rule out crossing from one alternate C&C timestream to another.  Sideways, not backwards or forwards.  And if something has followed Yuri from Twisted Insurrection, that would (partially) explain why they seem to be particularly intent on battling Epsilon.

  ...I suspect I might be barking up an utterly insignificant tree in the wrong forest completely though!  (Although Twisted Insurrection and Mental Omega do seem to collaberate at times...)

 

(I was going to park that little lot under a spoiler tab, but it seems Revora doesn't support 'em.  Bother.)

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

Anyway, what would I like to see from the new faction?  That's... a tough one.  We've already got our subversives, our powerhouses, at least one exotic, our zerg rushers, and our jacks-of-all-trades... what could be added.  Well, here's a couple of subfaction ideas:

 

Subfaction idea 1 - See your "impenetrable" defenses?  Wouldn't it be a shame if it were... disabled?:

Perhaps one of the subfactions of the "Visitors" could be more based around countering?  Maybe an EMP specialist that likes to disarm the opposition's structures and vehicles, or temporarily halt the charging of a superweapon?  Weak when you fight them straight up, but skilled at removing the enemy's capabilities before moving in?  But obviously, the disabling abilities don't last long, and any units with the capabilities have rather thin armour.

 

Subfaction idea 2 - MyStrength is my Weakness:

Another subfaction idea I can think of is to make use of an option from the Twisted Insurrection skirmish/multiplayer - berserk cyborgs.  The top tier of this subfaction is entirely mechanical, and when they are heavily damaged, the AI in charge of the unit has a chance of going berserk and attacking anything in its vicinity.  After a while in this state they self destruct, but until then no one should go near 'em.  This subfaction therefore has a choice; use their top tier, extra powerful units but run the risk of friendly fire and potentially their entire strike force turning on itself, or go for the middle/low tier units that are substantially inferior to the top tier stuff, but much safer to use.

Okay, I'll drop the "Twisted Insurrection" invaders (who knew you were using the "alien = anyone foreign to the immediate world" definition as opposed to "alien = non-human creatures of extra-terrestrial origin... even if they have been hiding on Earth for eons a la The Abyss"!) and simply adjust my hypothesis.  It's the RA2 contemporary version of Globotech!  (After all, Nod didn't notice the corporation building up a pretty sizeable military until they started coming under fire (despite, you know, being the lead power on Earth at the time), so theoretically, why would the Soviets?  Where were they hiding their army?  Underground perhaps?)

 

...Globotech obsession aside, I'll also support the "Australia" hypothesis.  I haven't played Co-op so I don't know the full extent of the story, but weren't some parts of the Pacific Front supposed to be upset with joining up with China?  If that includes Australia, then perhaps the new faction is them breaking loose from the Front and seeking to link back up with the remnants of the Allies currently cowering in the UK.  It could be just the reprieve the Allies need... until it all goes horribly pear shaped at least.

 

Really though, as long as it isn't anything too similar to the Empire of the Rising Sun, I'll be happy.  As long as it has a reason to be there and didn't just "show up" as the Empire did (in series terms at least), I'll be happy.

(I don't hate RA3, but I do feel it was the weakest of the C&C's... not counting Tiberium Twilight, which I've never played.)

A China-PF alliance turned new faction was another idea I had for the new faction. With PF having Kanagawa who looks like is involved, and that portal-ish thingy in a Chinese base in the video, there might actually be some connection.

A series of units that use the Robot Control Center system from YR would be nice. Judging from the trailer, I'm guessing the gameplay of this faction is more of a Glass Cannon-type, so really strong or very specialized units that needs to be operated from a dedicated building would be a fitting feature.


Actually Yngwie of Haus Malmsteen, feefty eenches of pure Svwedish beef.
