Are you going to use audio from 300 for unit sounds and special powers etc etc? or is that even allowed?

We are probably going to use a couple of voice clips from that film, yes.

A new ability for Leonidas: 300; call 300 Spartans.

The concept of what made up the 300 Spartans may be implemented. But it will not be so cliche as that, I promise you.

Leonidas could have: Spear-throw, a leadership ability named "King of Sparta" or something like that ;), then maybe something like Blade Master, King's Favor, and at lvl 10 the one that Inator487 suggested, but not that overpowered, maybe something like 6 hordes of elite hoplites.

6 hordes of elite hoplites would be very overpowered still.

Leonidas, same as the Athens hero(es) won't be very powerful individually. He'll be there mostly for support, and won't give more than a small edge in combat.

As it should be! Sending a lone hero out (i.e. Legolas or Aragorn) should be a suicide mission. Great that you implement this.

After all, heroes are only mortal. Sometimes I forget this when playing games when heroes aren't as resilient, and end up out five leaders or so when I send them out... :p

Leonidas should certainly have a spear throw and leadership, but is there a way to make spear throw leave the hero vulnerable for a certain amount of time? After all, unless he carries a quiver of spears, there's no way he could hurl one and immediately have another in his hand...

I say let him throw his spear right before he dies? Auto-aim and stuff like that? After all, losing your spear as a hoplite means you're desperate, I think.

Well, Leo did throw his spear at Xerxes right before he died... but auto-aim is lame. Probably means he's going to lock on to some schmuck with 1 HP and waste the whole thing...

In which case he may end up not throwing it at all. Or becoming invincible and running halfway across the battlefield to throw it. Or needing to run a few feet, but then being killed as he sets up for the throw.

He did... in an exaggerated movie that focussed upon portraying the Persians as retards and the Spartans as bodybuilders with killing-meatbag-skills.

Couldn't it be possible for him to equip his sword or whatever upon throwing the spear? I'm sure that the spear wouldn't have to reappear. And then it would be a one shot ability. Literally. Until he dies at least.

After all, he doesn't absolutely need to have a spear to fight. You wouldn't go into battle with one weapon, normally, and especially not if you were someone important.

I support Ganon's idea there.

Perhaps he could have a "Last Stand" ability at lvl 10, that makes him and nearby spartans killing machines for a short period of time, with a huge timer ofc.

Having Leonidas switch to a sword after spear throw would be quite interesting, but i wouldn't make it a one-off attack. It really defeats the purpose in having a special ability, and you'd be stuck with a useless button for most of the game. I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of realism for the sake of gameplay :good:

Perhaps Leonidas should have a spear by default, which he can throw as a special power. This forces him to use a sword until the power has recharged, after which time he switches to using the spear as normal, or he can choose to throw it again..? Though i don't know whether it would be possible to code, and it could be strange if it finished recharging during combat..

I'm pretty sure that we're just going to do any spear throw ability he'll get as BFME Eomer had his. Ie, just a simple rechargeable ability :good:

Mike has the right idea.

He'll use his sword as well, though. How exactly will be revealed in time.
