The Forgotten Battle Dragon was indeed April Fools´ joke.

I have taken this concept of montsrous dragon spitting blue flames and turn it into salvaged armored moster truck that is also a flame tank.

Hello my friends!

Im sorry but as you may (or may not) suspected the Forgotten Battle Dragon was indeed April Fools´ joke. During development of mutant faction I must take to test many ideas, and some things that sound like cool idea at begining turn not so great later. Such is fate of this mutated dragon. I get this idea from far Cry 3 - Blood Dragon (if you missed it I strongly suggest you give it try, this game is 12 on 10 scale of awesome) Im huge fan of this game and idea to have Battle Armored Dragon Assault Strike System (B.A.D.A.S.S.) was too cool to resist, but later on I realised its just too much. A dragon with gatling guns on its back? Too crazy for serious game like this (or its serious game right?).

Tiberium Essence 2.0 Forgotten

There might be more large mutated creatures, but rather things like floater or advanced form of viceroids not anything like overgrowth lizards. In general things that follow tiberian sun pattern for mutated creatures which I personaly preffer.

Tiberium Essence 2.0 Forgotten

Anyway dragon is joke, but I have also something real for you today to remedy situation. I have taken this concept of montsrous dragon spitting blue flames and turn it into salvaged armored moster truck that is also a flame tank. Isn´t that better, I believe yes. Once again this units is WIP like other forgotten units, but I really like this idea of heavy flame tank that can crush everything in its way and burn it (or melt it if you like). Hope you like it better than dragon.

See you next time

Carnius.

Hi baby. :p

The crusher is funny and nice unit (especially to see it in action), but I guess it would be excellent as Tier 2 unit, after all, it's the anti garrison unit. And it should be sensible to AT weapons as well like, Tier 1 "tanks".

I guess the BADASS Godzilla should be a special "monster" for certain maps. Kill it and you will gain something special, what about it?

The crazy thing is, a tiberian dinosaur probably would have been a real thing if EA made another C&C game.

Hey carnius, why not semi-balance the derp lizard, and throw it in WB only? ;D I'm sure some mappers could do some cool stuff with that thing xD

The battle dragon was the only thing that got me all day.

While the Crusher is nicely designed, doesn't its flamethrower kinda intrude on Nod's territory a bit? It feels kinda redundant to have two different factions both have flamethrowers.

Yes but this one is blue, its totally different flamethrower ...

Oh well, you got point in there, its quite possible that i change that to some sort of fireball laucher or grenade launcher, but the effect remains the same. We will see ...

Alright, if you assimilate the avatars' beam cannons on the conqueror; If you attack enemy units with the conqueror, you'll notice the avatar beam cannons don't fire. please fix!! in previous versions of tiberium essence the beam cannons worked but in 1.6 they don't

I like the Tiberium Dragon concept more than just another flame tank. Goes along with the idea that Tiberium is intelligent to some degree and has started mutating wildlife into forms it finds suitable- for whatever purpose that is. Also fits more with the forgotten, as they use anything they can get their hands on. Would be likely a case of "after tiberium feinds approach the end of their natural lifespans, the tiberium crystals on their back gradually soften and deteriorate- falling to the ground one by one until the crystals are all gone; The animal dies; but the red, fleshy crystals turn into eggs of the next stage of the life-cycle; the "Tiberium Dragon"- They can also be a case of "tiberium-mutate tiberium dawn dinosaurs"

Maybe you could make an entire faction out of Tiberium-Based Lifeforms?

The battle dragon also remind me of what EA done with RA3 April Fools when they made that mammoth tank (see the pic in google it also idea of taking animal and add two cannons on it back xD)

I discovered that way after the fact and was so sad that it wasn't a real unit.

There was Generals GLA concept art with animals

That being said, if it was scaled down and the turret remplaced by a inf unit (similar to the dewback troopers from StarWars) it could be viable still (but i am probably alone in this opinion)

Who needs a dragon when you can have a cool ride? :P

Yes, grenades are much better. Leave the blue flame as upgrade for the Brotherhood (the drilling mechanism should be standard).
