Re: My Time Here

I think folks are upset because yes, we're nerds with nostalgia for 40k and BFG, and we see the amazing potential in this game. But I also see a game released with loads of bugs and a crap interface, with no team chat, client-side multiplayer, and no ranking or MMR system. Balance and abilities are ...

Inquisition crew bonuses not working?

Just noticed this in the campaign. I have a couple of ships with the inquisition bonus, which bumps up all crew levels by one. However, even after maxing out my Ratings, my ships often only have a crew value of 66, even in battle. This suggests that they've only taken 2 rating upgrades instead of 3....

More Interesting Terrain, and More of it!

Playing more Armada, I really think the game needs larger blobs of terrain, spaced out more evenly. Very often battles in this game are fought on completely empty grids, which feels pretty dull. More larger blobs of terrain adds strategic depth to battles. Secondly, both terrain types should have bo...

Re: The Desolater post release; is it underwhelming?

On tabletop the Desolator never put out that much damage. It had about the same firepower as a heavy cruiser. Its strength came from the fact that it was a battleship (so good turrets, 4 shields, etc) as fast as a chaos cruiser!

Take away the Desolator's speed, and it's a pretty sub par ship!

Re: My perspective on skills and abilities

The only argument that could reasonably made for keeping MWJ in the game is how cluttered battles can get. In tabletop, ships are supposedly thousands of miles away from each other. Ships simply don't crash into each other, as it's assumed that even if they would "collide" on the table, th...

Re: Eldar riding the solar winds? Not so much!

Same reason naval battles haven't taken place in the middle of the ocean until very recently. Space is huge, ships are tiny. Why would they ever run into each other not near some system of interest?

Re: My perspective on skills and abilities

Solid post. I'll definitely second the desire to see the game focused on fleet maneuvering and positioning. I think that's really the core of what makes a naval strategy game so interesting. I think you make a lot of very good points. Anyway this is going to be a somewhat scattered rant as I'm prett...

Re: Eldar riding the solar winds? Not so much!

Hmmm, well I'd love to see Eldar sun-based movement, but if the devs say it can't be done, then I say let 'em focus on the rest of the Eldar issues.

Sun positioning affected the gun batteries of every fleet though, which would add another cool planning mechanic to games.

Re: reset admirals?

Hmm, mine are still intact for now.

Though let's hope this means a big patch and changes are coming!

Re: The three biggest balance issues with the game right now

It was a well-written OP post, but I'm not really all that optimistic about the prospects of MP for this game. To put this in a state where it would be an interesting naval-type RTS, there's just way too many things that need complete overhauls IMO. 1) The abilities need to be SERIOUSLY adjusted. T...
