New Idea for Epic Wheel

Recommended Posts

Not gonna really get elaborate, just the base line ideas for it. 

Tungsten Airless Wheel

Size: same as stallion

Durability: 250

Power drain: -10%

Perk: 50% explosion damage resistance and immunity to fire and heating.

Purpose: The first epic wheel that you can make a banana boat out of and not reduce your power to a crawl like trying to do it with 8 BFs. 

Secondary purpose: Directly for use in resisting Porcs and giving wheeled players more of a chance. Even docking with a 10 wheeled ride with these won't remove the movement parts before they're dead. 

Downside: Literally none. Change my mind.

100% immunity should never be giving to anything in game.

Remove the 50% resistance to explosive damage and make the immunity to fire and heat a 75% heating and fire resistance and that'd be great while also being balanced.

No. The wheel would be hot garbage if it was 1 Porc away from death at all times.

I got fanboys. Their pessimism is aimed at anything I say, as a way of trying to get at me by proxy.

Nah, Bobbill treats everyone that way.  It's not you, he hates everyone.

I wholeheartedly agree, it's why I just called him a clown in my other post and left it at that. But now I got some other coming out of the woodwork. SandpaperOrangutan seems to be hot and bothered pretty heavily right now, but that's fine. You'd be amazed how when I'm not in these forums, these chodes are but a figment of my imagination. It's like an on/off switch for the douchebags.

Getting a little edgy, forum lords?

On | Off   --------->  On [Off]

I'd want it removed so it's not just a better APC wheel. The APC wheel already has 50% resistance to explosions.

The main damage from porcs is in their thermal/fire damage as well and the base health would be enough to survive the initial blast.

This seems more balanced for sure.

Or do they look too much like Porcupine barrels?

Or better perk, If wheel is destroyed by Porcupine barrel it is replaced by Porcupine barrel.

You had me until you said no downside. That’s a no-go for me. 

Quick trivia! A wheel with no downside is...

A. A terrible thing for balance 

B. Ruining the rest of the idea

C.  Poorly thought out

D. All of the above

 

If you guessed D, congrats! You have intermediate logic abilities.

Truth be told, I like the idea. A more tanky wheel will fit well into the game, but the ‘no downsides’ thing is pretty bad. I think that the downsides should be medium-low speed and high weight. It is a solid metal wheel, after all.

Use this type of wheel. It can be a wheel or a track. So works like a bigram.

In wheel mode it has 75% fire resistance

In track mode it caps at 85kph and has 50% explosive resistance and 15% increased durability

Tracks are more tanky and slow, wouldn’t it be better if the perks were exchanged between modes?

You misunderstood my guy. I meant the downside to a wheel like this existing: None. As in this isn't going to make hovers any less dominate, and it isn't going to make BFs obsolete. 

Sorry you took it wrong, your logistical abilities are on an intermediate level.

Well... you can't be accused of misogyny, bigotry, misandy, homophobia, transphobia or whatever if you are actually a misanthrope. Makes sense!

He meant there is no downside to adding a new wheel to the game. Not that being a wheel has no downsides.

Its low to the ground, running over the porcs will still flip you, and everything else will still get recked by the porcs anyways.

All builds will be small using them, other wise you will need many and be slow. Anyways, defeati g the purpose.

Sorry it takes 30 seconds of thought to explain a couple downsides of using wheels in general to you.  I dont see how a new wheel, immune to fire, and explosive resistant could harm the game at all

Ah, my bad. I interpreted it like that because the original post didn’t mention any bad qualities the wheel might have.

but with that cleared up, I agree with the original post fully. +1.
