An idea about how to reimplement the hero bodyguard system
So I have an idea on how to bring hero bodyguards back to Battlefront but also make their presence feel meaningful. Certain heroes like the Emperor, Leia, Padme, Obi Wan, etc. could all use unique bodyguards. What if bodyguards were a resource that required battlepoints to be used once the hero spawns on the battlefield? For example, when Obi Wan spawns in, Commander Cody will be purchasable on the menu for slightly more battlepoints than jump troopers or any other special trooper. Cody, and other bodyguards, would have between 350-450 health so that he is distinguishably better than the purchasable special troopers but not as tanky as a hero. Through the same reasoning, the Emperor would have his royal guards, Leia and Padme could potentially have guards that coorespond to the map location, Anakin could have Rex, Grevious could have magnaguards, etc. They could have a special trait that encourages playing around their hero such as having cooldown reduction or slightly faster health regen. Giving Vader shadowguards seems to be a little too strong and problematic so I wouldn't go as far as giving him bodyguards. Same could be said for Kylo, though giving him flametroopers as bodyguards would be cool! So what do you guys think? Feel free to add to my thoughts or explain a different system that y'all may have in mind. Thanks for reading.
