This looks so fantastic so far! I'm loving it!

Quick question... how would you completely avoid a fight? Of course you could very easily avoid the territory altogether, however what if you accidentally run into a pack and don't want to get in a fight? Would submitting to the pack work? It appears that running away just makes them automatically attack you. If there's no way to avoid a fight thats fine (and justified for the other pack because i would be on their territory)

I love how much more interactive the NPC wolves are going to be! Gotta love the bloopers, lol. And I'm loving that fluffy wolf face at 2:07.

Also personality!

Bold means more aggressive, and they would circle closer?
Cautious means they'd be less aggressive and would circle farther back?

Energetic means they'd be more ready for a fight?
Lazy means less excitement for a fight?

Social means more talkative or persuasive to get you out?
Loner means he probably would stray from the fight?

Tell me if this is right please!
I'm gonna do this for every post from now on too. Because I can lel.
Keep it up my Wolf lovers! :wolf:

Sure, you'll meet stranger patrols with various numbers of wolves in them.

AmberZeWolf wrote:This makes me kind of wish that strangers wolves could be enabled for Pack Life multiplayer games, like a toggle feature. Make the game more interesting and have fights between the pack wolves with your own pack
Agreed -- we haven't given the Pack Life mode much thought yet, but we will.

They will definitely want to come kill your pups.

TimberRaven wrote:Will a single whine change a fight? Could you attack someone in MP?
Whining wouldn't change a fight, but it might have some affect on the situation.

MP will have NPC packs that you can fight; player vs. player fighting is something we hope to add in Tower Fall.

Wolf strength will be one of many factors, yes.


watergoat wrote:when you come up on a group like that will each stranger wolf treat you the same or will they all have different opinions of you?
Well, they won't have thoughts like "That wolf is so beautiful, I won't attack her" -- their mindset is determined by your location in their territory, their personality, and the power dynamics.

Run!

(And keep running until you're out of their territory.)

I love how realistic this is getting? At times, will there be less or more than three wolves that try and attack you, or is it always three? Same question for getting a mate, since I saw that now you have to try and get their attention better now too.

If you re-watch the video on mates (http://wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=97&t=84477), you'll notice that Dave specifies that you can run into one, two, or even three dispersal wolves at the same time. I would assume there is a similar numerical mechanic/algorithm in place for hostile wolves and/or both fall under the same mechanic/algorithm. I have not heard this number yet go beyond three. I would assume that it is more likely that, if your wolf is facing a pack, for this "maximum" number to go up more than if your wolf is facing dispersal wolves. Dave would have more information.
