Thread: With some new features in HotS, which ones should come next?

  1. #1

    Default With some new features in HotS, which ones should come next?

    So, with all the new features coming in Swarm, what features should they focus on next, for either Swarm patches or for Void? What would you like to see?

    Here are some of the more popular features I've heard of (and also approve of):
    • Clan Wars
    • Automated Tournaments
    • Map Marketplace
    • Art Tools for 3DS Max/Maya
    • Custom Campaign support (like with WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne)
    • Fansite/E-Sports Support (news from SCLegacy, TeamLiquid, and e-Sports teams and events)
    • Telestrating (Drawing on screen in matches)
    • Mass Observing/Live Casting/In-Game Match Streaming (Twitch.tv integration, C&C's Battlecast feature)

    Art tools are already in beta testing, and Clan Wars are most likely the first feature to be worked on after the release of Swarm, but what would you guys like to see next?

    Kudos to Arkceangel for the Terran avatar and sig!

    Map Marketplace is the next big hurtle I think.

    Full bodied 3D profile avatars. With unlockable "equipment" to mix and match / show off.

    Example:
    10 wins = Zergling model
    50 wins = Cooler looking claws for Ling + Hydra model
    100 wins = Spikes on back for Ling + Cooler claws for Hydra + Roach model
    .
    ..
    ...
    2000 wins = Kerrigan + Zergling cyborg armour

    So on and so forth.

    Same deal with every race.

    Edit:
    League of Legends benefited heavily from having something to do in between matches (those rune thingies). It would be nice if Starcraft had something to do as well. Instead of waiting for your friends or those countdown 'boops'

    I want my Zerglings to have gold teef and hoop urrrangs.

    I wouldn't put it off the table with Blizzard involved. They've always been good at not taking them selves too seriously.

    "High" Templars with bongs?
    Firebats with "Kiss the chef" aprons?

    Didn't the Starcraft guys recently talk about wanting some sort of pay function?
    For $5 you can have as many earrings and gold teeth you want.

    I think we deserve not just unit skins, but also alternate sounds or soundtracks as rewards. Think of having the option to unlock the BW zerg sounds. As their levelling rewards are probably all figured out by now, maybe they should give such rewards for playing Blizzard All Stars?

    My best idea so far, though, is to integrate BW to BNet 2.0 . I don't mean playing BW in the SC2 client - I mean, accessing old Battle net or Iccup just like the usual, but being able to know if your friends are playing SC2 or Diablo3, and vice versa. I think this would objectively help SC2 to grow in Korea, as there are more people playing BW than SC2 there right now.

    Map translation from BC maps that actually carries over triggers, events, and units! :P
    I've fought for the Terran revolution, I've seen the promise of the Protoss, and now I'm ready to join the might of the Swarm...
