Personally i think it'd be really good being able to respec before a strat battle based on the equipment available for the battle. Would promote more team synergy based on equipment (e.g. if you have a clan of ~~15 people playing, you could all respec pike, shielder etc. to counter what you think the enemy might have)


^


I've never understood how it is not a good thing if people could respec their strategus character to whatever they want whenever they want. It would create an environment where "class strategy" can be used on the go on a clan scale, and on an individual basis you could play out anything you want after considering what kind of battle you are going to participate in, and briefing/TeamSpeak instructions could encourage some kind of synergy around a prepared theme.

what is so bad about weekly respecs? Choose ur build wisely and if u dont wait 7 days and play stf. Having one weekly is already pretty much imo.

shitlord, you play the same 2h kuyak build for the last 4 years.

A decrease makes sense. Completely removing it definitely does not.

It really is not, I would prefer not seeing 50 crossbows in siege or 50 cavs in battle.
It only takes 3 days to change strat hero, so I don't see why they can't be able to respec every 7 days. If you have more than 2 characters you are only 3 days away from another class anyway.

I dunno. Its convenient with easy access respeccs, but feels like the game loses charm from it. Recognizing someone from his build and style means nothing now cause the next day he could be completely different.

It matters little to me, but ive come to know Quality of Life can often result in less immersion.

no, that would let people switch to builds specifically for the gear you have in your next battle. A horde load of ranged weapons would then lead to a massive archer spam.

I've always wondered, what would be the actual harm in having this for Strat heroes?

You decide in Strat "I'm buying all ranged weapons", you somehow communicate this to your entire roster and they all by some miracle are up for it and all respec to archers? Imo if you've managed to achieve that miracle then you fully deserve your 100% archer or 100% cav or 100% whatever battle.

Anyone who's ever led a Strat battle will know you'll never get most people on-board with that with the correct builds in time. And if we lived in a world where you could? Unless you've somehow communicated this in silence, the enemy knows what you're doing and can respond in kind. Honestly I'd be kinda interested to see how a rare all-cav vs all-archer battle would look. I suspect it'd be over very quick but then again majority may be playing classes they suck at.

Imo Strat should be freedom with fewer technical restrictions. There are already so many organisational restrictions in place to a point where frankly anyone able to pull off mass-scale respec abuse is a god and deserves his 20minutes of fun at the front of a 50-man cavalry charge before everyone goes back to their preferred builds and more versatile army comps.

I think the respec system should coincide with the retirement system. It used to be that if you wanted a new build then you would retire your character which also had added benefits for the server. You would have more people caring about their XP and trying to level up which added more population to the servers and at the end of that process you got a sought after item that could help boost the economy a bit

I like the convenience of the free respec since i'm never going to retire again, but it does kind of undermine the whole retirement process for those who do. I'd move away from frequent free respecs and make it something you can purchase instead. I'm thinking of one free respec a month, then it costs in the region of the value of a loompoint if you want to respec again that month then it costs 2.5x a loompoint, then 5 etc. It would also help take some of the gold out of the economy that people are hoarding

Didnt get to vote on time. Remove it, or at least reduce it. Any change in that direction is good.

Strat hero should be able to use the 1 free 7 day cooldown shared by all chars respec. How does allowing strat hero to use a free 7 day respec hurt strat? I want to switch out the 3 points I have in shield to something else and just carry that 0 skill cav shield but I have to wait 3 days to transfer to an alt and then wait 3 more days just to get it back. :cry:
