In the stream Fizzer mentioned that he's intending to potentially include new kinds of Speacieal Unit in addition to the Commanders and I thought it would be fun to make a thread about discussing potential unit ideas.

Archer/Sniper: Can attack one of the territories connected to an adjacent one.

Scientist: Can research how to create more income. (Base income)

Plane: Can reveal one fogged territory per turn.

Those are my ideas, I think the Archer/Sniper would be the coolest though

If he's going to do that, he can't restrict them to members. I mean, he could, but it would make his decision to remove permanent membership even more annoying.

Tank: One tank acts as five armies. You can add special bonuses that give you tanks instead of regular units perhaps?

To Diplomatic Immunity, I don't understand your "plane" idea. Isn't that just a reconaissance card, except, even worse? I do like your sniper unit though.

To Greezantium, I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but a military base of some sort could increase income of the bonus it's in by one, if that's what you mean. That would be cool.

I'm thinking of an undercover agent, that makes the territory it is on appear neutral to opponents.

For the plane can already be kinda done, just give one of these: https://www.warlight.net/wiki/Reconnaissance_Card#Reconnaisance_Card
each turn.

Sniper sounds nice.

However I don't think Scientist or factory would really fit in this game, base income is base income, the only way to increase it should be taking bonuses/lands.

Inflitrator/revolutionary - can take an adjoining enemy territory without attack by turning units against their army or causing citizens to revolt

Blockade/siege unit - deny an enemy territory or bonus any reinforcements for a turn

To be honest I like the sniper idea best

Mortar: On attack, counts as 3 troops. On defense, counts as 9.

General: Kill rate for the unit with it is cut by 33%.

Ambusher: Does not show up on enemy's map even on no fog. When territory in which he's defeated is taken, 2 turns later he retakes the territory with a stack of the size of the one that you had when the territory was taken.

Assassin: Stack has double efficiency when attacking a stack with a Special Unit.

Charger: Has priority over all other moves. Always happens first.

Archer/Sniper remains the best.
DI's ideas sound like he's trying to make Warlight into Civ.
Ambusher needs clarification.
Assassin is obviously a good idea.
Charger could also be called cavalry, which is a good idea.

Gifting the territory back to the other player would not be an good idea.
I think it would be better if this card destroyed 50% of the enemies armies on that territory next turn.

These were a couple rushed suggestions (30 seconds thinking and several more typing).

Yup, true here.

There's a lot of glitching potential in that.

Archer/Sniper is the best idea I think I'd like to see. Sounds awesome from attacking point of view. Defensively I imagine it and would just feel so exposed lol.

The Sniper, Charger (Cavalry sounds better), Assassin, and General all sound like good ideas, without changing the game too much.

i have a great idea that could change the way people plan there tactics.

Nuke card :
1. destroys all armies in the territory selected
2. turns the territory neutral
3. destroys a set amount of troops in all bordering territories around the selected territory
4. reduces all armies in any territory that borders the one selected by 50%
5. reduces all armies in any territory 2 territories away from the one selected by 25%

Sounds a bit overpowered. Maybe it should turn the territory into a wasteland instead, and either heavily damage or turn the territories adjacent into smaller wastelands.

i am trying to simulate the different levels of radiation levels and destruction levels based on distance to the land that was initially nuked

Maybe you could customize how much damage it does at each distance in the settings. I think it would be good to have a very large neutral territory where the blast was to simulate all of the damage and residual radiation making it too difficult to be re-inhabited.

They need to make a fog setting with that kind of thing. No fog 1 territory away, light fog 2 territories away, and then after, normal fog.

Some ideas for special units. Mostly intended to spice up scenarios.


Capital: Can't move, counts as 0 armies. Adds 20% kill rate to defenders, if captured you are eliminated.

Fort: Can't move, counts as 0 armies. Adds 10% to defensive kill rate, can have more than one, if captured it changes ownership to the player who captured it.

Barracks: Can not move, counts as 0 armies. Produces 1 elite per turn. Can have more than one, can be captured.

Developer: Can be captured. Counts as 0 armies. If it stays in a territory for 3 turns without moving it increases that territories bonus by 1. Not allowed in games with overlapping bonuses.

Berserker: Adds 20% to attack kill rate, reduces defensive kill rate by 10% Counts as 3 armies.

Spy: Can not attack or be attacked and is invisible to all units except to spy catchers. Gives sight to all adjacent territories, can enter the enemies territory and reduces income of an enemy territory by 50%.

Spy Catcher: Can not attack or be attacked and is invisible to all units except to spies. Can not enter enemy territory. Autokills a spy if it ends it's turn in the same territory.

Cavalry: Counts as 3 armies. All armies with it can move/attack two territories per turn. Not available with Multi attack.

Artillery: Counts as 3 armies. Adds 10% to attack kill rate. Nullifies Fort and Capital defence bonuses. The turn after attacking all armies in it's stack can not move or attack.

Elites: Count as 2 armies.

Also along with this the option to have card pieces for all special units (except ones that if are killed you become eliminated) where you can trade cards for a new unit of that type. For example you can trade 5 Fort cards to place a fort somewhere in your territory.

Champion: Acts as twenty armies. When killed, ten random armies from your stacks die as well as the champion (like them losing heart and deserting).
