Just like you... only better!

 

 

A new donor perk has been added to all FirePowered servers called Alter-Ego!

 

Alter-Ego allows you to be represented by a bot when the server is at less than 12 players. Simply select the new Alter-Ego option in the !benefits menu to customize your alter-ego's class. The rest is automatic. When the server has less than 12 players, a few alter-egos will join the server along with the regular bots. Since your alter-ego is supposed to be a representation of you, you will not see your own alter-ego join when you are online. Your alter-ego will only appear on one server at a time. If your alter-ego is already active on a server, you can join the server to watch it. It won't disconnect until 12 humans join.

 

Your alter-ego will rock the last loadout that you used on any FirePowered server while you were playing as the same class as your alter-ego.

 

Normal bots are set to Easy difficulty. Alter-Egos, on the other hand, are set to Expert in order to give you a bit of a challenge. When you kill an alter-ego you will be rewarded with 1 loyalty point.

 

This donor perk will activate on all FirePowered servers within 3 hours.

 

If you have any feedback, please feel free to share!

Thank you Dr. McKay! Can't wait to see this in action.

 

Edit: Will the loadouts retain our renamed/desc'd weapons and colored hats/miscs?

This feature is really fun. It will also give seeders a little extra to do (dat loyalty). While McKay and I were testing I was hunting down myself :P

This sounds like a great idea!  

 

When you say you won't see your alter-ego join when you are online, does that mean connected to steam, or connected to a particular server?

Alter-egos won't join servers that their owner is on.

I've been lobbying for some Alter-Ego stats in the not so distant future so you can check on how well your Alter-Ego is doing. How many times he's been killed and how many people he has killed.

If I see my alter-ego is on a server and I decide to join to watch it in action, will joining RED or BLU force it to disconnect, or could I potentially be playing alongside/against myself?

You can join a server that your alter-ego is on and that won't make it leave. You can play alongside yourself if you wish. Your alter-ego will only leave if 12 humans join the server.

One last question. What will the naming convention of these alter-egos be?

Your alter-ego will rock the last loadout that you used on any FirePowered server while you were playing as the same class as your alter-ego.

 

 

So if one were to use something like the rocket jumper, and the bots were to follow out with that, would they be smart enough to switch to an alternate weapon?

Doubtful. This is actually an interesting point but due to the number of useless weapons in TF2 I'm not sure it's something McKay is going to be willing to try and blacklist. Just don't choose a dumb loadout before having your Alter-Egos play :)

Alter-egos don't wear hats/miscs.
