My fix would be similar to what Black Ops 2 did with their micro-transaction loadout pages. And it would sort of go like this.
- Character select (lock in)
- Gear box tab (lock in)
- Gear box select
The “Gear box tab” would would be about 5 tabs that would have ~12 gear boxes each. Personally I’d name them after the 5 factions, but you could name them support, tank, assassin, ect… or maybe mains, needs practice, ect…
So to start off in the command menu instead of selecting a gear box to edit, you’d need to select a gear tab and it would load the 12 gear boxes in that tab. One more step and you’d still get basically the same ease of use, and infinitely better control and depth in the loadouts you could create.
So for an example if I select my “Rogue” page I’d have 2 loadouts to use for each character. I could have a PvE loadout and an Incursion loadout for Orendi, and a Meltdown loadout and Face off loadout for Pendles, ect… But say I don’t like Reyna and never intend to use her, that now opens up 2 more loadouts I can split between the other 5.
So one night I was in a queue for “Incursion - Monuments” and I lock in Galilea and my UPR gear tab, but my team hops on the bandwagon and plays all UPR characters to help with Benny’s lore. Except in their excitement they forget Incursion w/out a healer is a horrible idea IMO. So I file back through my taunts and skins and get to my UPR gear tab.
- Assassin Galilea
- Brawler Galilea
- Capture Galilea
- I wish Benny could still crit
- Capture Benedict
- Support Ernest
- DPS Ernest
- Nomad Ghalt
- PvE Ghalt
- Oscar Mike
- PvE OM
- Capture OM
(I get an extra one for OM and Galilea because I don’t intend to play Montana)
And I pick my “Brawler Galilea” instead of my “Assassin Galilea” because I have no Ambra or Miko to top me off, so I go with the loadout that sacrifices DPS for survivability.
@Jythri It would be awesome to hear your opinion on my proposal, and if it is even viable/how long it would take to implement.
But really what I need right now is bank space, as 279 isn’t cutting it any more. Also one “gear box” I could edit in the character select would be cool… for reasons.
