Hey, I’m Cole! I’ll start off by saying I’m glad to be in the community and I wanted to pitch an idea to see how you guys react to it. I’ve never seen anything like this on COG before. There was a similar game on steam called SC2VN though.
Give me some feedback in the comments and feel free to pitch more ideas. I have multiple people helping me on this, and we want to create something that hasn’t been done before, so we’re up for some in depth challenges. Thanks guys!
You play as a college kid, trying to make it in the pro scene in one of the hottest MOBA’s of its time. Nothing comes without work though, and unfortunately there are thousands of other people trying to make it out there just as you are. Can you soar to the top of solo que and maybe, even find your way onto a team?
For those who didn’t know, MOBA stands for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, and falls under the real time strategy type of gaming. This story will provide enough knowledge for someone who’s never heard of a MOBA to be able to understand it clearly, and learn more about MOBAs. This story isn’t just for video game players (though it does appeal to them), but it’s a story about the struggle of the real world. It’s about ambitions, emotions, and video games.
The story will take place inside of the game, with you making decisions which can lead to a win or a loss, and outside of the game, making you manage your life, and has you pressed to pay the rent. I’ve had contact with a couple professional Esport players, and I’ve learned their experiences, which helps me write this story even better.
How is this even innovative?
As I said, I’d like this to be something new, and fresh. I plan to make mostly every choice count, and let the reader feel very in control. Of course the story has to be somewhat linear, as there is an extent to what I can do, but I want this to feel like you have the power. Something like this will take a while, but Rome wasn’t built in a night.
I’d like to have choices for what role you’d like to main, and a small champion pool if possible. I’m up to add any ideas anyone has, COG scripting is very flexible.
