[Suggestion] Regicide Mode

Postby stylesrj » Sun Sep 02, 2018 10:21 pm

You know how certain games (Ok mostly Age of Empires 2) have a King unit or super unit that upon death ends the game? Well why not one for Into The Breach?

The idea is that you have a Pilot/King who if they are killed and not brought back at the end of a level, your Grid is set to 0 and you instantly lose.
Of course, people might be like "Well I won't equip them in a squad and sell them ASAP" but well, that wouldn't be a challenge now would it?
Maybe the pilot provides bonuses for everyone in the team like extra damage or movement or provides a Reactor Core for every island they survive (maybe 1 core on the first, 2 on the second, etc.)

The biggest problem I can see though is that you might get the King from a Time Pod or as a Perfect Island reward and thus ruin the run as a whole. So it could be a King Mech which works like the Secret Squad?
Might be an interesting challenge if you're prone to killing pilots.

I like the idea. Maybe an option in the Mod Loader to adjust what can and can't spawn it (Time Pod, Perfect Island Reward, Shop, etc.).
