Very happy to hear that we will get 2 player co-op vs AI with persistent fleets. It's what my friends are waiting for. Do we have any date on this feature?

It would also be great if you made a road-map of races you wish/hope to make eventually (if you get enough funding and all that) and in what order you are hoping to give them out. I know one friend of mine is going to drop a brick in her pants once she finds out next after Space Marines are Tau. For my part I am very much looking forward to Necron, but to be honest - I play all factions =D

Thanks for being upfront and laying it out - it puts a lot of unease to rest on my end <3

Excellent news! Only thing that could make this game better is some story/singleplayer expansion.

Most importantly they need to get a handle on why the game is so unstable - way way too many games end in one player crashing out or lossing control of his ships / view point.
Imperial - Lady Lukara (8), Chaos - Abraxus (8), Eldar - Flower of Carnage (2) , Orks - Big Bazza (6), Wolve - Floki (6) :mrgreen:

GW also published a 3rd war for armageddon campaign and a 13th black crusade campaign, both of those would be pretty fun as campaign expansions

I'm sure this can EASILY be tested to see if it will cause issues.

Commanding 2-3 ships is frankly just boring as bat-shit.


I think 500 would be best people can field their toys better and still go with a decent combo on their own without relying too much on their comrades.

Anything more would start going into the exploit stage. LOL. You know how gamers are.

So 500 per player (1000 total per team?)
I'm fine with that too ofcourse.

Although restricting the overall pool of points should not be done on the basis of 'player behaviour'.
There's so many other options to ensure a balanced fleet composition.... the Tabletop games have been doing it for years.

500 points = 1 Battleship
1000 points = 2 Battleships
etc.

It's so easy to balance some of this stuff. I see no reason at all we need to be pigeon-holed into such tiny games.

This is good news, but while I like the Tau and would certainly appreciate them being added to the game, I think the Necrons would be a better, more lore-friendly choice. The Blackstone Fortresses were built to fight them and the C'tan, it's only natural they'd take an interest in them being reactivated.

Hello,

Don't get me wrong there is a lot of excitement and joy in relation to "let's go deeper into the gothic sector!" but i would like to express me current feeling towards this game in its current state.

There was a lot of excitement leading up to the release of the game, for those of us that have a long history with GW (and TT gaming in general) the announcement of this game was fantastic. I love the game that GW created and there exists a great opportunity for BFG Armada to be also a truly amazing game. But right now unfortunately there exists way too many serious code issues that need immediate attention. We experience way too many game crashes and flow on effects that are generating far too many negative play experiences for the players. I have suffer multiple instances where the screen rotates to a flat plane and the camera is stuck and i lose complete control of my fleet. What is even worse is when the game has a fatal error and i am thrown out into my desktop. When i reload the game i discover that my entire fleet has been destroyed. Another example is when the player is using he Elder fleet and they can't use any of their abilities.

As we all known the potential of the BFG universe, there is a huge amount of amazing content that this game can tap into. The story line has already been written and the content for additional ships for the different fleets already exist, not to mention new fleets. I know that it will take some time and as players we need to be patient in order for the developers to address these current game issues. But soon there will be the release of another PC game based on the old GW fantasy universe and in the near future another based on the 40K game Space Hulk. I just would hate to see BFG Armada reflected badly if there bugs are not resolved soon, some people may decide to focus on other games.

The communication and feedback is great to the community i really appreciate that and i hope it continues. Also i really hope that the current game issues are resolved asap.

Thanks,

Joo64

A lot of people have said it already, but the single most important feature I want is the ability to setup custom games with fleets at any point value and with whatever ships and upgrades we want. If you do that, I will buy so many gift copies of this game! :D
