Thing is, 300 points most of the time is kinda boring. You can't use many ships combinations you would want to. Now I know, that there are some tech limitations for now, but an increase by at least 60 points to everyone should not break everything, right?

When you play a multiplayer game, you expect to be able to play as you would a single player, just with more players.
To that end, I think every multiplayer match should be 600 pts PER PLAYER.

When you play a 2v2 multiplayer game of Starcraft (or any other game), you don't suddenly have your available supply cap halved do you?

More ships, more fun!
I don't want to control less than half the number of units just to be able to play with other people.

I dunno. I like playing with only a few units in 2v2, as it gets rather messy even then, and it makes for battles which don't just end up as BB and 2 BCs duking it out. 2 BB and 4 BCs isn't much of a change.

2v2 Strategy games means splitting the amount of available gold/crystals/minerals what-have-you in half. Here, while it could stand to be larger, like 400 or so for a max until they get the network strong enough to handle more, 600v600 for the current way the game is scaled is a bit much.

Now, if we could bring effectively all our line ships in on some mode or another, that'd be nice. Maybe only 1v1. Hard to micro, yeah, but more like the battles we envision, I'm guessing. I just don't know if a few Battleships and Battlecruisers duking it out really fits that for the battles we like to think of as epic.

No.

1. Maps not big enough
2. Easy to cheeze with.
Just imagine 4 acherons with 4 hellbringers. Plenty of people be playin with friends. It would get rediculous.

I would go with 400 MAX on a 2 v 2. That would prevent some fuckery and allow people still to field some decent combos without being overpowering.

If you create bigger maps and allow people to choose what point limit they want to play at, it's win win.

Edit: and fleet composition restrictions will prevent 'cheese'.

Yeah give restrictions to BCs, Novas etc and giving them fleet caps etc could work.

I hope that in the future, we will be able to set up matches, like in DoW1 for example. Give 100 points or 1000 if we wish, number of clouds and asteroid fields.

I would like to see an increase in points regardless of mission to 600per player for 2vs2 at least and some scenarios should be able to go up too 900-1200. 1vs1 should be increase to 1200 max on some scenarios. TT was able to be scaled up to higher point values.

Personally I found 700/350 limit as it is now to be a bit underwhelming. No, maps aren't exactly huge, but they're not that small either, you could take one more line ship in 1v1, or two more line ships per player in 2v2 and you still wouldn't choke. Something like 1000 points for one player would mean approx 2 line ships more, and that would mean more micro to do, but hey, if someone wants to play a bigger game and be challenged with more micro then why not? I assure you map would not be too small.

Of course, 2000 points or something like that would be ridiculous for reasons I need not present, but it's an extreme situation.

Needs point increase for multiplayer, at least to 400 each.
