New Game Idea: Quest Subterfuge

For tournament announcements and updates.
Mon Aug 01, 2016 3:14 pm

  • In a world... where there are no nuclear wars anymore, but each country has been given holy quests by the God (Me xd) himself, you can't argue and just do what you are told. I welcome you to... Quest Subterfuge.

    Basically, no mines are allowed, and the only way to win the game is by completing the 4 holy quests which are distributed to you. Even though I haven't made the exact quest list yet, no 2 players will get the exact same quest, and they will have varying difficulties. For example, ''Have the most number of specialists at any time'' might have a difficulty of 2, maybe 3, whereas ''Hypnotize at least 3 specialists'' would be difficulty 4.

    Rules:
    -No mines are allowed.
    -Each player will have 1 quest from each difficulty category, from 1-4, and thus 4 quests in total.
    -Whenever you complete a quest, you should provide proof by sending a screenshot to me. Then I will announce that ''Player X has completed Y number of quests.'' But I won't tell which difficulty the completed quests were.
    -When a player completes 3 quests, he must announce his final quest in the public chat.
    -When a player finishes all quests, he wins, with all the rest of players resigning (2nd and 3rd place are open to discussion and will most likely be given to players who have the most quest points.)

    Revealing your quests are forbidden.

    Quest List:

    Easy:
    - Have 60 shields charged at an outpost.
    - Control 12 outposts.
    - Get 150 drillers at one sub.
    - Kill / Drain 70 shields in total. (Tinkerer doesn’t count.)
    - Promote 2 specialists.
    - Have 2 specialists from each specialist type. (Offense, defense, utility)
    - Put 1 offensive specialist, 1 defensive specialist and 1 utility specialist at the same sub.
    - Have 6 specialists at one outpost.
    - Let your Queen travel for at least 18 hours.
    Medium:
    - (Only achievable after day 3) Make sure nobody can see your Queen.
    - (Only achievable after day 4) At least 75% of your subs are en route to somewhere, this means only 25% of your subs can be stationed.
    - Control Outpost X (will be decided according to player and map layout) for at least 2 days, without ever losing control.
    - (Only achievable after day 3) Get 5th place in the rankings.
    - Have at least 50, 100 and 200 drillers stationed at 3 outposts.
    - (Only achievable after day 2) Have control of the most number of outposts.
    - (Only achievable after day 2) Have control of the least number of outposts.
    - Have 4 promotable specialists.
    - Have a factory produce 8 drillers at each production cycle.
    Hard:
    - Have at least 5 available hires at any point.
    - Control 2 outposts which are at least 45 hours away from each other. (Without the Admiral speed boost.)
    - Kill at least 150 drillers in one battle (yours and enemies’ combined.)
    - Promote 2 of the same specialists.
    - Control 4 outposts starting with letters A, S or T.
    - Blow 50 drillers up using a Martyr.
    - Convert at least 2 specialists with a Double Agent.
    - Repair at least 75 drillers using the Engineer’s effect. Doesn’t have tobe at the same battle.
    - Destroy 60 drillers with a War Hero.
    Expert:
    - Have at least 6 available hires at any point.
    - Hypnotize at least 5 specialists.
    - Control 12 generators.
    - Control 10 factories.
    - Control 15 specialists. (Assassins and saboteurs, each one of them count as 1, so if you hire them, you get 2 for the purpose of this quest. Promoted specialists also count as 1 for this purpose.)
    - Kill at least 5 specialists via Assassins.
    - Put 3 of the same specialist at one sub. (Assassins and Saboteurs do NOT count.)
    - Have vision to at least 75 outposts on the map.
    - Eliminate a player. (YOU should be the one doing the elimination, if someone else kills, you should eliminate someone else.)

    PLAYER LIST:
    -Niverio (Moderator)
    -Nojo34
    -Aclonicy
    -Zyxe
    -mm1menace
    -Janitorialduties

  • I'd like to play.
    Here are some ideas, with no specific difficulty.
    All numbers can change

    • Use a Queen hunter (Nav/Pirate/Assassin) to eliminate a player
    • Have on of each specialist. Doesn't matter if it is promoted or not.
    • Three of the same specialist
    • 15 factories (Can change the number)
    • 15 gens (Can change the number)
    • 300 drills a day
    • 1000 driller cap
    • Eliminate X amount of players
    • 70 shields at one base
    • Blow up one outpost with a martyr
    • assassinate 5 specs
    • Use a diplomat to release 5 specs
    Simply put, my job here is to keep the forums afloat through any means necessary

  • I'm in! Almost like hide and seek game we played a while ago. Weren't you mod for that too Niv?

    Ideas?
    Own all "S" specialists (saboteur, sentry, smuggler, security chief)
    Be in first place
    Be in last place
    Own an outpost that started with the same letter as your username (could be impossible for some people, and way too easy for others. Would have to be a good match to make this one work)
    Go for 18 hours without checking the game (would have to be set up with Niv for confirmation)

    That would be really difficult, almost too hard for a 4. I think Own one of all the offensive specialists is better, but could still be difficult.

    Yeah it is hard. To make it easier have Hypno and King count as 1. Meaning you only 1 hypno OR one king. so promotions dont matter

    Still. 20 specialists in total, your hypno would have to be working overtime for that.

    Another idea, have all your drillers in subs at one time, and must be more than 350 drillers. Meaning, no driller can be stationed at an outpost, and you can't do it right at the start cause you don't have 350 drillers

    I know. I was just throwing it out into the ocean (pun pun pun pun) Depending on how hard the other level 4 quests are id like to see a "Specialist" collection quest. Maybe have 5(?) promoted specs or something along those lines.

  • I'll play. I like all the Niv run games. ;)

    I'll come back with some quest ideas later.

  • Some ideas I already have in mind:
    -Have 60 shields charged at one outpost
    -Kill/Drain 50 shields in total. (Tinkerer doesn't count)
    -Have vision to X number of outposts. (Number subject to change depending on the difficulty)
    -Have the least number of outposts on the map
    -Have the most number of outposts on the map
    -Control X number of generators
    -Control Y number of factories
    -Control X (outpost name, depends on to whom this quest will be given, will most likely be a hot contested spot between two players) for 2 consecutive days, without ever losing control in this period.
    -Have 300 drillers on a sub (number may change again)
    -This one I find the most genius and challenging: "Have 3(hard) / 4(expert) available hires at any time"
    -Have at least 50, 100 and 200 drillers stationed at three outposts (otherwise said, you should have the ability to drill 3 mines instantly)
    -Grab 5th place in the standings at any time given.
    -Capture an outpost which is at least X hours away from your closest outpost.
    -Control two outposts which are at least X hours away (admiral boost won't be calculated, based on 1.0 speed.) from each other.


    Oh and another thing I forgot to mention: Revealing your quests are forbidden. AND EVEN THOUGH DIPLOMACY IS ALLOWED, SPECIALIST + OUTPOST TRADES ARE FORBIDDEN TO NOT MAKE HARD QUESTS EASY.
