You have 3 free wishes to improve the game, what would that be ?


1 Well my first would be to have reliable escort ships.
I mean by chaos they are pretty bad. They must have much better weapons.

2 Make Eldar just a close range faction. This Goose chase is too boring.

3 Add all the remaining factions as DlCs.
Necrons , Tyranids and so on.

1. Maintain Formation command that forces ships to keep positioning and speed when you change facing

2. Ranked Matches with Leaderboards

3. Rework of the upgrade system so the upgrades cost points and are calculated in battle totals, the current levelling up only creates issue for new players

1/ Add a global interest in MP mode (ladder, MP campaign,swiss tournaments...) to give more purpose in the games

2/ Modify the levelling system/compensation system to still have a progression/compensation but much less issues for new players

3/ Let players be able to choose what scale and what scenarios they can play in MP (with a veto system for example)

1. More ships. Victory class, Repulsive, Desecrator, Crafworld ships.
Ships that will fill holes in the playable fleets.
2. No more defender-attacker bullshit in cruiser clash instead a victory point system, when you destroy a ship you gain victory points and who has more victory point at the end of the match wins.
I guess everyone met with a tryhard who just never give up and you had to chase 1 escort ship for till the end of the match and he won because he was the defender.
3. No more zzap madness for the orks, revert them back to a brawling faction again.
Its frustrating when orks are a better lance faction than Chaos.

1. Rebalance favours, aka:
buff assault favours, via fixing lightnings for example
rework weak skills like Blood Axe nova, Tzeentch warp signature echo, Imperial Navy loyalty
2. Make assault boats viable again (not OP like some time ago, just as good as bombers, 3 boats instead of 2 for example?).
3. Give chaos space marines more presence in the game (1 upgrade that merely lowers enemy troops by 5? Joke)

This is actually a great idea for a post.
Thanks op.

1- Reduced lethality.
Shit just dies / gets crippled too fast. Longer lifespans would help give a more central role on positioning and tactics. Balancing gets easier for added granularity and outliers are either less relevant or super obvious.
But don't nerf the guns, add hull/shields like VI mod did.

2- Stay on to the balance.
Its been what? 20 days since the last balance pass that broke the game. Fast, small fixes. It's already too late, but something can be salvaged. Maybe.
Gotta. Stay. On. To. It!

3- Regional/Global ladder.
And ffs have statistics gatherer in place too. Helps a lot to put point two in effect.

1. More work on campaigns, including ones that are random for replaybility, and ones that are multiplayer conquests of the gothic sector.
2. All Factions (Tyranids, dark eldar, etc), then All subfactions (different sector battlefleets, different craftworld factions, etc.)
3. A Rogue Trader mode with that focuses on role playing and heavily customizing a single ship, and is heavily Co-Op.

well after that:
4. Make mines and other structures deployable in more scenarios.
5. Balancing the current mission types (like ork attackers against eldar defenders in data recovery and assassination, or like having attackers and defenders in cruiser clash).
6. Making new mission types to add to the mix.
Do you hear the voices too?!?

1. Longer queue times in exchange for better matchmaking. I'd much rather wait 3 minutes to get into a match instead of 15 seconds if it means a fun, back-and-forth 15 minute game instead of me ruining some beginner's day with a fleet of level 10 ships. Make the ELO number public and boom, you have "ranked" and a sense of progression too.

2. Make upgrades (and maybe skills and favors) add a small point value to ships. My dream would be a system where all upgrades start at say 5 points, and then the ones that see the most combat across the playerbase increase in cost while those that see the least combat decrease. That would organically balance the game while rewarding players for playing out-of-meta builds. It would also lead to more interesting build decisions instead of just slapping the same set of the 5 best upgrades for a given faction on every ship you own.

3. Formations. Ships should maintain the same position relative to each other when ordered somewhere as a group.

1. Turn based gameplay

2. All favors are one per fleet

3. Bring ship weapons/movement/turning/hull/points closer to TT values and tweak points from there.

I just gotta say to point#1, in tabletop ships were crippled when they reach 50% hull, so them getting crippled too fast isnt really true, at least compared to what i'm used to, but yeah, perhaps for the point values of the games we have some ships might evaporate too soon. It does still need looking at.
