Idea for a new game feature - team tags

Postby Exotic Cricketer » Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:24 pm

One of the few annoying parts of the game is where you slowly build up a team from scratch, only for one or more of its members to need to spend a week in the Tavern, Chapel or Sanitarium. Another problem is if a character levels up before the others, meaning they can't go on raids that the others still can, or the rest of the team levels up, and that character can't, again leaving them behind until they catch up.

While you can eventually get them back together, the game as is makes this a pain, especially if you have a lot of characters on your roster. This means reuniting them manually, either through memory or trawling through the weekly bulletin to see when they all last went on a raid together.

The solution I propose is 'team tags', a feature where you can mark a character with a symbol that links them to three other characters. This stays until the character dies, or the player removes the symbol. This would allow players to immediately see who's who when it comes to selecting characters to go on an adventure. But it would also allow you to immediately bring up all your teams in the roster via a 'arrange characters by team' option.

Thoughts?

Not a bad idea. Simple little feature, but it could do some good. Just put a little icon on the character screen somewhere, and when you tap it, you bring up the team menu. Could be done as simply as having a list of basic icons to tag a soldier with, though more complex systems for names and details wouldn't go awry either.

No reason to limit it to four players though. You could group together all your characters who are good at a specific dungeon (So Crusaders, Plague Doctors and anyone with Unholy Hater for the 'Ruins' group, for example).
