"Familiar Faces, New Souls!" -Innovation about the new versions of heroes

In this post, we will discuss about some possible versions of the old heroes who have already taken part. We have 23 different characters: Glenn, Carol, Gabriel, Negan, Morgan, Eugene, Jesus, Michonne, Ezekiel, Jerry, Rick, Tara, Carl, Merle, Aaron, Daryl, Maggie, Sasha, Dwight, Abraham, Rosita, Rufus and Governor. We all noticed that NG recently didn't release any new character as hero but made new versions of old heroes: Rick, Glenn, Morgan and Daryl. I heard that there were something happened on the agreement between NG and actors so that it is not likely to see any deceased character soon, such as the well-expected Beth, Andrea, Shane and missing Heath. There is still some hope for the alive characters like Enid, Siddiq, Magna and Yumiko. But according to the current trend, new versions of old heroes should be the most focused point.
Besides, I have to apologize for my bad bahavior in my previous post about new heroes. I should not show extreme attitudes and vicious words in the debate on the issue- "should we have new heroes?" Now I try to persuade the sceptics in warm ways. But I still stick to my idea that we should have new heroes. With the coming v3.0, we have a new mode: guild war. A new mode means the demand of new strategies and new traits. A hero is the best way to bring a good trait. So we should be enthusiastic to the appearance of heroes. We will together find out a way to unlock a hero without dilution of tokens caused by radio calls, like Aaron and the two Daryls. We can discuss to solve all conflicts of opinions.
So we start a new start. Let's be active to make our game better!

    Let's make an analysis first. From the sheet we can see the possible classes of each heroes. The class possibility is according to the TV episodes. + means already exist, ? means maybe appear.

    In my estimation, these are the the heroes who may be released as a new version in the near future: Carol, Gabriel, Negan, Eugene, Michonne, Tara, Aaron, Maggie and Rosita.
    Carol-shooter (pistol and bow)
    Gabriel-warrior (machete)
    Negan-assault (submachine gun and assault rifle)
    Eugene-scout (knife)
    Michonne-shooter (pistol)
    Tara-assault (assault rifle)
    Aaron-scout (lance and knife)
    Maggie-bruiser (crowbar)
    Rosita-scout (lance and knife)

    I think new heroes with good leadership skills can be used in guild wars. but if it is possible to add new characters such as Magna, Enid, Shane, Beth, that would be cool.

    Bro, I even desire these heroes more than you do. Unluckily, if the informaton is true, NG didn't get the permission from AMC and the actors. What we can do is only waiting and desiring. But I am really glad to meet a enthusiast for new heroes like you.

    I think a shooter Carol is highly likely given the new bow for shooter class and recent episodes.

    Ruthless, Retaliate, Revenge, Vigilant would be appropriate IMO from the episodes.

    Leader trait.... I think it would be cool if she had increasing chance for attacks to become incendiary even if the weapons aren’t incendiary. Just think of Lucille on fire! (Loved that scene) All guns are now flare guns! Viking funerals for all freeman! (Minus the water) This could somehow pair with hazard suit like damage resistance from fire.
  • TimyunTimyun Member Posts: 177
    @Michonor23 Incendiary is indeed a good trait. I created heroes about it: Lizzie and Cyndie. But fire sometimes hurt ourselves too.What I am doing is creating heroes and their traits. Maybe they don't fit in pair. So I hope you and NG can match them more properly. :wink:

    @General_Pain @Kaz @Shteevie @Teeceezy @Bonaqua @Alibaba @zbot
    Hello, bosses! Welcome to take a look at my ideas and consider to adapt them. I wrote a post about new characters as heroes but unfortunately nothing came true. https://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/30569/my-own-new-heros-unoffical/ Now I know the problem with the copyright of actors between NG and AMC. So I suggest to create new versions of old heroes as you did. You already got their portrait permission, right? Guild war is coming, so it is the time to try something new. I am willing to make any affort to improve our game. And I need your notice. Thanks! :*

    This is an amazing thread, and I like some of these ideas very much! We will definitely be making more second Hero versions, and this is a great start to any brainstorming we will be doing with those characters in the future.

    Super big kudos for this thread and all of your hard work!

    Hey, I love brainstorming about new leaders and traits as much as the next person, but I would like to point out that 2 of the new heroes (Rick and Daryl) are scouts and then you suggest 3 new scouts.

    Also, I just want to say I always thought Carol should've been an assault, like when she stormed Terminus. However, I can totally get behind a long haired shooter Carol with a bow.

    @Shteevie Thank you for your attention! Due to the coming Season 9B, could you please soon consider to develop the Archer Carol? She is always a significant and powerful character but has never been the seasonal token reward. And I discussed about my idea of her trait with Chinese players. Many of them are look forward to it. Besides, we want a proper hero to operate the Super Legendary Winter Bow. Our previous shooter heroes all cannot use a bow. According to the TV episodes, Carol, Dwight and Yumiko are the best selections. But Dwight now is out, and Yumiko is not impressive as Magna. So the conclusion is that, Carol will be the most popular archer. I hope you can agree with me. :D

    Alpha is a scout. I know you know how passionate I am about her as a character and the One With The Herd hero trait (which was about halfway introduced by this update).

    @Artminius I saw the trait you designed by her. It will be activated by chance or degree? With the promotion, how will it be stronger?
  • TimyunTimyun Member Posts: 177
    @Shteevie Sorry, now I know my mistake. It won't happen again.
  • LieutenantMarshLieutenantMarsh Member Posts: 10
    I think a lot of these ideas are pretty rad, heck i have some of my own, just lacking detail. Some although are already listed:

    - Savior Eugene (Assault) w/ Lead Skill "Side Switcher", idk what itd be, maybe like a chance to not get attacked by Humans for 1-2 turns?
    - Prison Maggie (Warrior); Just so that she can wield her machete :)
    - Prison Carl (Assault) w/ Lead Skill "Quick Learner", which again, idk what itd be, maybe a Luck based trait like Father Gabriel? Oh speaking of...
    - Soldier Gabriel (Hunter); Maybe utilizes walker guts for something? Kinda like a Huntsman Daryl but for ranged characters?
    - Withered Aaron (Scout); Utilizes prostetic hand for: Anti-struggle? Chance to not take damage when first struggling? Both? You decide

    And then the rest are just the usual new faces but after learning about the actor ordeal: Shane, Andrea, Beth, etc.

    JUST GOT 2 NEW IDEAS

    So I like the idea of an Assault Negan, but what if he held his machine gun in one hand (raised up in the air), and his bat at his side, which could be utilized in some way. After all, other characters have used guns slanted over their weapons (Morgan).

    Second idea, a version of Meryl that lets him use his knife hand, i mean cmon, who doesnt wanna see that thing in action??
