Hello Guadians, hello Bungie!
Let me introduce myself, my name is Petr Švancara, I am a long term fan of the Halo Universe.
Like others here I am also one who love the Bungie studios. Bungie's previous work(s) and especially the Bungie's art creators and musical composers. I think that whole team is very talented and experienced as well. Design(s) from Bungie provides us a many unique ideas and even more original concepts.
In the terms of the Destiny itself, there are a huge amount of different design(s) and art(s) in the game. Sci-Fi genre is one of the most potencional world/place where can be made almost everything, and I think that, this is the main reason why we all like the Destiny.
Reason why i created this topic is mainly based on the eventual adding of the new design elements in the final version of the game. Here is a couple of my ideas that should not be hard to add in the game. One last thing. Before I present here some of my thoughts and ideas, I want to say, that I clearly know how difficult is to implement those additions in the game. Especially in this current stage.
- Helmets and Faces
Customization(s) is one of the best thing(s) almost in every good and advanced game. It gives
the player(s) a freedom in the terms of let anyone choose what anyone want.
Destiny is totally a one of the best games that I ever see. And believe me, I play many games
across many platforms. But, lets get back to the helmets and faces right?
Destiny gives the player(s) option to create own character(s) and especially the faces as well.
Those faces are very unique and very different among each other. It's beacuse every player
choose something different between those choices. But lets be more accurate about this.
In the game itself there is no option for choosing to wear or dont wear a helmet. Helmet is just
a permanent choice. And i think that it is a little bit annoying.
Players in Destiny have a numerous kind of variations between armors and weapons, but when it
comes to the helmets, there is no option for choose if you really want your helemt show or hide.
But why I writing about it?
Just because only place when you can see your precisely created face is simply
the tower or animation story sequences.
It's still good to see faces in every possible way, but in other way it's not enough. When the players
reach some kind of higher level, it's highly probable that there can be more
players wearing the same or at least very similar armor. I can imagine a more than 20 helmets for
all sides, for titan, hunter or warlock each. So probability to meet other players with the same or
similiar helmets it's relatively high. Even if there would be more type of this helmets, its still
the same case.
But there is a way how Bungie can simply solve this problem.
If the programmers can add a choice for player(s) to wear or dont wear their helmets.
I think that solving this problem would be for many players very cool variant. Players can be very
different across each other.
If there would be some players that would still want to wear their helmets, then o.k! No problem,
those helmets could be just invisible or visible, just for the effect to see our precisely created
faces in the gamaplay, in the story and even in the crucible.
- Dear Bungie
It should be just something like a turn helmets on/off (visible / invisible). Like a optional choice
somewhere in the guardian's stuff menu, where you can simply tune it for your wish.
Don't you like your helmet, or do you just want to see your face because you are proud for it? Do
you want to create a friendly clan composed only from exo's, humans or awokens? o.k. why not,
imagine a clan filled with those players, and all their faces. Iťs a huge opportunity to give players a
perfect experinece with their unique face designs.
Some guardians should be playing together, because they would be creating a teams or clans,
maybe clans organized from one of those existing races. And this idea is just more than awesome!
Yes, there could be some questions, like is there a oxygen it this atmosfere or not? o.k. so do
this possibility only on Earth places, because if there could be flying birds, (and tower open areas
proving that there is oxygen) than this option can be apply only on Earth, it's very logical.
I mean if there is places like a Moon, Mars or Venus then sure, do this option to take off your
helmets only on Earth.
Even if this option would be added only for Earth territory, it would be still more than perfect
addition to the game.
- Truly, there are many more players that would be happy with this improvement. I am not only one.
- I believe that even some of your employees in Bungie will be happy with this game enrichment.
- Even some players that never think about this can be glad for this possibility.
- I believe that this option should not be hard to add in the game, at least at this time.
- Imagine this options that can this addition give to all the guardians, all this unique faces.
As like i write above, I really like Bungie studios. I have a piece of your stuff in my heart!
So I hope that this topic would be valuable for you guys! In every other way, Destiny is excellent game, I played BETA, and I just know it, not only I know it, so please Bungie, please use your remaining time for adding this option (take off your helmet on/off) to the game, it would be overwhelming!
We all love you Bungie!
