As many of you may recall, in World at War we added unlocks to the Prestige ranking. That is to say, as you reach certain levels of Prestige, we unlocked more Create a Class "slots" for you.
This was in addition to the Prestige Icons that had been in the previous game.
We are currently working through a list of Prestige ideas and we ask you to pile on.
First, some ground rules:
Unlocking items that can give you a slight game play advantange like Create a Class slots is fair game, but don't bother with content suggestions:
-upgraded items (my gun is better than your non Prestiged gun)
-new content not available in the non Prestige levels (new types of grenades, attachments, or other equipment)
We know exactly what percentage of you opt to Prestige. It just doesn't make sense to develop new game content used by a relatively small percentage of you some of the time, or (as would actually be the case) hold back content from the game for such a small percentage of overall players to use a small percentage of the time.
As you can imagine, that makes tuning and testing a lot more difficult and the cost vs reward of that type of feature development doesn't come out too favorably. It's "expensive" (using that term generically, not to mean money) to develop and tune content that not many people will ever access. Follow me?
The very definition is Prestige does not include the use of the word "exclusive".
Someone who has prestige is widely recognized, has distinction or importance.
What do we give people who Prestige to further that cause? What do you want to identify you, the Prestige gamer, as having this distinction?
I think prestige camos would be a good idea. Having camos at intervals such as 200, 500, and 1000 would be a good idea. These would be prestige camos that don't reset when you prestige. I think these would be a good idea in addition to having normals camos that unlock as you rank up. So having the traditional woodland/desert, digital, blue tiger, red tiger and then including these prestige camos would really give the people that prestige something that is special to them, while not affecting gameplay for all non prestigers.
