Doctrine Idea Poll

Post by kwok »

During this whole doctrine rework phase, we have received many ideas for doctrines as well as come up with many on our own. Sometimes, doctrines do not hold up thematically to the greater vision on BK. For the next phase, we are looking to the community to give some guidance on a direction to take. This poll is just meant to be GUIDANCE and NOT NECESSARILY WHAT WE WILL DO. Our goal is to build a doctrine that is balanced, immersive, and fun with the community’s feedback.

AGAIN, THIS POLL IS NOT MEANT TO BE A FINAL DECISION. We just want to hear what you all think.

Of the three doctrine ideas below, which seem the most interesting that you’d like to see in the game?


Veterans Army
The commander known as the “Desert Fox” earned his nickname by being one of the most notable tank commanders of the time. This doctrine will model after the division he commanded, the 21st Panzer, where you will be immersed in his decision making and given various weapons available throughout the war. A key strategic focus when playing this doctrine will be macro and properly tiering at the right time to handle.

Skill/Reward Ratio: Low

Volkssturm (People's Army)
During the latest stages of the war, the “People’s Militia” was established and integrated with the Wehrmact. Through promotions under the Propaganda Minister, parts of the German army became supported through conscription.
This doctrine will feature light infantry combined with the latest weaponry and tanks available to the Wehrmacht.

Skill/Reward Ratio: Medium



Propaganda

Propaganda played a major impact on the war and was used on many fronts, from the homefront to the trenches.
This doctrine will give you a wider selection of morale impacting and economic abilities to influence the frontline. A more micro-intensive doctrine that will reward proper usage and timing of an assortment of abilities.

Skill/Reward Ratio: High

The idea of Volkssturm already existed. The doc was called propaganda and contained Volkssturm. But it was forbidden to be used or am i wrong?

I heard something like that too but I presume the original creator forbade the usage of the doctrine (or basically files) he made/designed. If we decide to go with the Volkssturm doctrine, we will design it from the scratch and it will be our design, thus no prohibition would apply.

The doctrine will be created from scratch and will not look like or contain any files or ideas from our old team member Rurhpatriott.
This is something new in accordance of the work and improvements we've done so far on bk mod "IF" we decide to do it.

Lol, you know I think there is a very thick border between: making "any" changes and not letting the mod die...
and:
changing literally everything, units, doctrines, values, abilities, adding and removing same things a copule of times, balancing, then reverting cuz it was op, then balancing again because it was too weak, and reverting again, moving stuff to different doctrines every few updates (maybe that will help), removing ammo price from mortars, then adding ammo price for barrage, buffing arty damage, then reducing scatter, then reducing arty range, then adding more shot per barrage.. and so on and so on... I could keep listing this chaos for much longer, but I guess u get my point

Yeah I love that "reworking"...

Isn't this how old games remain popular to this day?

Oh exciting news! Can we expect possible thematic shifts for the rest of the doctrines, too?
