  2. This is just a rough draft of ideas for human skills and specific zombie classes designed to counter said skills.  It's probably super unbalanced and has not been put into practice
  3.  
  4.  
  5.  
  6. What I'm suggesting is a skill tree system that's a hybrid of PAYDAY 2 and Killing Floor.  Similar to PAYDAY 2, the base gameplay at lvl0 would be the "default" state of human skills with no added buffs. The player can then opt into certain skills after they progress further into the game.  
  7.  
  8.  
  9. The problem with PAYDAY 2 though, is that it can be very confusing for new players to try and align every skill with eachother properly through a slow and steady progression without proper understanding of the games mechanics.  The class-based approach of Killing Floor, however, simplifies the players choice in certain skills and playstyles to avoid balance issues, and avoids players becoming confused on what skills would go best with others.
  10.  
  11.  
  12. What I would propose is a system where players can fine-tune their skills to whatever playstyle they want, but ultimately the buffs and debuffs will weight out to create a proper class or "sub-class".  Ultimately, it would be best for the player to follow the "meta" for each class.  
  13.  
  14.  
  15. This makes it easier for new players to understand how the skills work together, and gives veteran players a challenge by allowing them to create unique sub-classes.
  16.  
  17. Buffs: +
  18. Debuffs: -
  19.  
  20. Human Classes:
  21.  
  22. - Beserker: Massively increased self-sustainability at the cost of minimal long-range abilities and lack of team support.
  23.  
  24.     + Increased damage with melee weapons
  25.     + high focus on skill-based movement and increased agility
  26.     + Can buy weapons without arsenal crate
  27.     + Zombies have a chance of dropping health on death
  28.     - reduced healing from medics
  29.     - less ammo from ammo resupply
  30.     - cannot buy weapons from arsenal crate
  31.     - cannot buy ammo
  32.  
  33. - Support: Making support somewhat vulnerable, more valuable to medics, and slow, would hopefully motivate players to work together to keep the cader alive.
  34.  
  35.     + Spawn with more nails
  36.     + Cheaper nails
  37.     + Increased barricade healing capacity
  38.     + slightly more healing from medics (medics will get more points for healing support)
