Digging into the Character

By Miles, Designer on Sam Wilson (Captain America)

 

After a long run as Captain America, Steve Rogers has decided to pass the mantle/shield onto his long time partner, Sam Wilson. Falcon quickly updated the suit with wing holes and started practicing his shield throws in time to headline his very own comic series.  Now that Sam Wilson (Captain America) is here to stay, what does that mean for the game?

This character combines elements of Falcon and Captain America, so when we went to design Sam Wilson (Captain America) we started by taking a hard look at those two characters’ powers.  Both Captain America and Falcon are essentially defensive characters, using shields and creating protect tiles.  Falcon, however is more about agility and speed, where Captain America packs a bigger punch.

Wings of Liberty is a good example of Captain America and Falcon mechanics coming together.  This power is meant to feel like a mix between Sentinel of Liberty and Bird Flock, creating a large number of protect tiles on Yellow.  Divebomb is another good mix of ideas from both characters.  It shows off the hard hitting, Captain America, side of the character in a way that keys off of the Falcony protect tiles made by Wings of Liberty.  Using defense as offense is something both characters do in the comics and really comes out in this ability.

The Marvel universe is full of characters whose superpowers gives them a new way of moving around. These movement-based powers are some of the hardest to model in our game where the fighting is abstract and enemies are almost always “within reach” of your fists. All of Falcon’s powers have to do with flying around, but Inspiration seemed like it captured the most it.  So we drew heavily on that power when designing Aerial Avenger.

Awesome,  though we really didn’t need another CA, I hadn’t known of this change to the character.  Very proud and makes a lot of sense based on the cartoon.  Wondering how it works though from a chemical makeup. Anyway yay for Sam.

I would have liked a Northstar,  still haven’t celebrated any of the “out” LGBT *characters during this momentous year (hmmm to the raven and possible phoenix and iceman)

Oh great another character to water down the pool.  What I’d this 4 or 5 characters in the past 30 days now?  Why don’t you out that dame effort into matching logic and you might actually improve the game for once.  I guess more watering down is the best way to go.  Thanks d3!

Agreed what’s the point of having new characters if you can’t collect enough of the old ones to consistently compete.  Unless you have all three event characters pve is useless and pvp wipes out your points every time you close the ap for more than 5 minutrs.  Even when you do fight they make you fight teams that are too difficult to make any progress.  You’re stuck in a feedback loop d3 fix your game…

Jack, if you have a reasonable, maxed 2* team there is no reason you can’t rank.  If the top players are out of your league, choose a different match next event.  It’s just a matter of timing (wink, wink).  This goes for both PvE & PvP. 
There are ways to get around &/or avoid these challenges.  I’m sure there’s a guide online but they are just tactics you’ll pick up as you progress.

Yes! I have spaces for 50 characters and can’t keep up enough to max out the ones I already have. It’s getting really frustrating, get the same 20 covers constantly…..
