How about an overseer as part of 4v4? instead of 5v5

How do you think the game would be affected if one player was able to see a top-down version of the map and could make suggestions to the players via the map. He can see his players on the map, and would be given access to 180 degrees in front of the players on his team; he can see dots of the opposing players if a player on his team can see that player. Using this information, he can make suggestions to other players via mouse to arrange flanks, etc?

It would add a very interesting element to the game, much like an RTS. He would be very busy with 4 players to control and coordinate.

I have no idea what you’re talking about, I suspect you’re in the wrong place.

This is a forum for people talking about the Unreal Engine 4 SDK and toolset, not for a game…

He is talking about a possible gameplay mechanic and I think general discussion is the right place for this.

As for the gameplay mechanic. It’s already implemented in one of the leading fps’s. I think in battlefield 4. Or will soon be here. The player can do it even on a tablet. It’s actually an interesting mechanic, but I don’t think it’s really fun in the end.
