Blazer, Blaster, Assassin, and Shocker are the new classes set to be coming in the next update……

I’ve made this thread as a masterthread for everything to do with the upcoming updates regarding these classes. No set release date so far.

I personally think that the assasin will be similar to the one’s posted in the furoms, the blaster will be a heavy hitter with lower health then the tank, the shocker will be similar to the tech and stun quite a bit (though the last thing we need is a troll class) and the blazer will be…. a pyro.

What we know…..

Four classes, Assassin, Shocker, Blaster and Blazer.

What we want to know…..

Their roles/what they do
Price if they have one
Their Weapons
Release Date

Rumours

Blazer is a explosives class with C4 as a possible weapon The first sign of this rumour did not mention the flame-thrower as a primary weapon

Referring to the Oct 18th image….

Shocker

Blaster

Hmmmmm, perhaps the shocker is a debuff class. I’m fairly sure I’ll have fun with that one :D Blazer will probably be an explosives specialist. As for the other 2, you’re probably in the ballpark there.

Yeah, I agree with gex that shocker is probably a debuff class. probably going to have a little more movement ability than tech.
Blaster could be what basic said, but also maybe it has some weapons that knock your opponent back. Strong guns, slow shots.
Assassin will be interesting to see what they put into it.

Blazer will be a dude that plays with fire A.K.A: pyro

Assassin ≅ Scout

Blaster ≥ Gunner

Blazer is explosive A.K.A guy that puts down mines and shoots rockets.
Assassin is a spy or invisible or stealth class even though it is weak it can sneak up and attack enemy’s.
Blaster huge guns super strong but slow shots and normal hp.
Shocker debuff and buff’s class buffs allies and debuff’s enemy’s A.K.A shoots a beam that stuns enemy’s but makes allies who get hit get 2x stronger.
(these are all guesses so do not think that i am serious this is just a guess)

P.s the shockers beam can not damage enemy’s it only stuns, and buff’s allies.

Josh why don’t you just edit your post if you have something to add? Instead of double posting.

Congruent means exactly the same, which you should know if you made the effort to put in its symbol. I think that they will be similar, but odds are it will have one of those assasin-like ability’s we saw in the furom (Invisibility, Able to look like its on the other team, Mines/bombs etc.)

Blazer: BOOM. Nuff said. Flamin’ explosives.
Probably area clearing, due to burn.

Blaster: BOOM. Again. Probably explosive shotgun-type stuff or something. Homing explosives. Cat cannons.
Also probably area clearing, due to shockwaves from explosive things.

Assassin: Sneak, sneak, sneak, Hey, I’m here, not there. Pop. Dead enemy. Walk, walk, walk, POOF! I’m missing.
Assassin. Nuff said. Sneaky stabby kinda thingy.

Shocker: Walks forwards. Shocks enemies with handheld game console. Pours water over enemies. Revives allies with defibrillators. Tasers. Stun batons. EMPs. Electromagnetic Wave Force Cannons. Looks like a battery or a nuclear reactor.
Probably support/stunner/team debuffer/helper/maybebackuptanker.

Finally got a new mouse for my PC.

I think blazer will be a explosive guy T.N.T and stuff. Blaster big guns, huge guns, strong guns, medium hp, slow. Good for u shadow congrats on the new mouse, and that’s what i thought Shocker and Assassin would be. :)

Blazer: Pyromaniac guy
Blaster: Explosives guy
Assassin: Cloak and stabbing? Cloak is more likely, stabbing is a personal preferance :3
Shocker: Shocks ppl, Zap zap zap.

Im lookin most forward to Asssassin and Blazer.

Does anyone else think that it’s going to be a bit of a shit-show when they’re released? I mean releasing four classes at once just doesn’t seem wise to me, I can already guess at massive balancing issues (as seen with the weapons update, but this will be on a larger scale). Why not release them one at a time over a few weeks, balancing each as it comes?

Although even with that said, I am excited to see new classes and certainly think it will be an interesting development and a huge step forward for the game

I feel like (no one quote me on this) the classes will be rent to play (like the guns) so most people won’t use them and the people who do will only be using like 1 at a time. It’ll be like the new weapon release. Who would’ve guessed releasing 12 new weapons all at once would’ve gone so (relatively) smoothly?

I can agree with Djinn on this subject as 4 new classes come out at the same time and everyone will play them. One concern is that there will most likely to be a few/multiple bugs in the classes and their weapons, and we all remember the glitch for the scout, so think that but over 4 classes with varying weapons.

I think that there may be a certain level you have to be before you can play the new classes as it will promote more people playing to get the new classes. I also think that they will not immediately come out with buyable weapons as they will need to get the current weapons stabilized first.

As for fitting in with the story timeline, the new classes will most likely be to a degree new warriors to do battle with the four original classes as an opposing side.

As for the weapons on the wikia it says what the Blazer might have for weapons, and i say it might be true.
Missile Launcher “(Until Release Blazer Class Update)” (default weapon?)
Homing Missile “(Until Release Blazer Class Update)” (default weapon?)

 
Flag Post

Some kongregate person posted that (bit about Blazer weapons), then it got put on wikia

I would rather that the classes come once per week, so they kinda die down and more updates :P
By having these classes come once per week, allows downtime for bugtesting and adjusting for new content.
This reminds me of my family’s fishies in the backyard pond. We dump a whole bunch in there and some of them survive without us feeding them. Cruel, isn’t it.

Shadow your back!!~!~! Looks like its time for the old basic-shadow team to fight again!

Also, don’t believe what a random said in the furoms about the blazers weapons. I thought I had removed them but maybe I hadn’t….. Anyway, their just rumours.

Bwahahaha, yeah, broken mouse. At least I had my PSP.

And those rumours were kinda shot down by FRG saying that it was a rumour, and FRG refused to give any hints as to Blazer’s weapons, around 1-2 months ago. That bit on wikia is wrong, so I’d suggest whoever is messing with wikia to fix it. :D

Once Assassin, Blazer, Blaster, and Shocker is out, I’m gonna learn to play them all! ^^

I notice the -er is being used alot. Gunner, Blazer, Blaster, Shocker. What’s next, Hunter? Fisher? Poker? >;3

We know FRG has a plan and until that plan takes place we should all be hyped for new classes, and trust that he will do a good job with them.
