Re: Ask for some other good strategy games

I had a long post written up for this, but unfortunately it was lost since I got auto-logged out. I'll just list my recommendations quickly instead.

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

"However, you are just pivoting and recycling that one scenario from the gif you made with Punsho - where a mammoth wins by running away. In most other cases, soldiers with equal cost will win." Once again, no. That gif shows perfectly spread infantry, AND the mammoth kills the two rifles first. Tha...

Your link doesn't work Luftwaffe. Here, let's use your logic for a moment. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/228905084212346880/563768976807559185/Artillery_Melee.mp4 As you can see, the advanced unit artillery died to infantry, what it's supposed to counter! Without firing a single shot. Follo...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Well, to make sure we're on the same page and stop people from just saying whatever, I recorded some videos of mammoths. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/339126076204908544/563747486582177793/Mammoth_without_Kiting.mp4 This is a mammoth with no micro, opponent attack moves in with the "counter...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

My few forays into team games this release involved many, many mammoths. Combined with multiple players IC'ing them, well, there was nothing I could do. Many players are picking soviets these days in RAGL. I haven't been paying too close attention but I've seen mammoth rush strategies that are stron...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Glad there's a lot of support for the temporary GPS idea. I had a discussion with Pchote and we think it would work best like this: Tech Center is built, hidden countdown on satellite. Satellite is launched (global sound). Then, an ability is granted on the radar dome that lets you activate the GPS ...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Shroud Generation : I still think this implementation would be bad game design. What does it encourage from the user? 1. Constant movement to cover your base. This is mundane, tedious, and distracts from the main game. (Mass Fabricators in Supcom 2 are also tedious for this same reason) 2. There is...

Re: Two vs Two Team Tournament!

Oh. That's an odd thing to have off by default. Thanks, I turned it on. Also, there's been a change in the map pool. I know, last minute, but it was pointed out to me that Vihaan Lunta has a serious ore placement imbalance, an imbalance in oil derrick placement, and an imbalance in expansion slots. ...

I can't see any settings on the forum that prevent PM's? I guess you could msg my Discord.

Re: Two vs Two Team Tournament!

...and we're full!

You can still sign up as a reserve in case one of the main teams (or a member of a main team) doesn't show up on tournament day, which does happen pretty often.

Is there any change in how ranks work? Specifically are speed modifiers removed?
Uh, I don't think so. If anything changed it'd be on the playtest, and I don't think anyone got around to implementing the changes that were discussed months back.
