I have started to do a bit of roleplaying to add some spice (out of the gutter, please) to my gameplay. Mine is probably pretty weird though. My 5 heroes are each system modules that together make up a spaceship. E.g. my flagship:
C Rig: Removes foreign viruses affecting computer systems, repairs other modules in the ship, and boosts weapon damage
Grazul: Repairs other modules and jams attempts to inflitrate with a foreign virus
Noor: Creates a potent overshield that also sends out a signal that has a chance of bringing down an enemy ship’s overshields over time
Gefjon: Primary weapon that fires a powerful ion blast that passes through overshields and redirects the overshield to its own systems
Lady Loki: Secondary weapon that re-directs foreign viruses back to their origin. Can be alternated with G Falcon which sends out a pulse that weakens the shield to further energy attacks on the same frequency
There are also standard blasters that continually fire that are modulated to inflict the most damage on enemy ships with green frequency shields (red 4-stack vs green tank).
Each ship in my fleet has a different mission, the flagship specifically hunts out enemy flagships with overshield generators. I have other ships that are faster and with a larger arsenal but they also don’t have as many defensive systems.
Perhaps lockdown has finally gotten to me…
