Well I hope that is true.
I bought this game with high hopes of it capturing the feel of the TTG, which to a large extent it has.
However I am not a player who goes online or plays multiplayer. Why? Because I am not a player with a MMO/RTS playing background and the aspect that I, and my friends who I have shown the game to, do not like is the pace of this game. For those players like me who loved the TTG what I like was the fact the game was about placement, manoeuvring your ships carefully, which on the TTG you have time to do this. In BFG:A the paces is very fast, too fast for an inexperienced player like me or someone who loves micromanagement and for me it is just not what I consider enjoyment in trying to fight with my ships the way I want to.
I know the remaining players in this community have the MMO/RTS experience and can manage playing this game without the use of the TC, but I think many more players cannot and are too intimidated to fight a PVP match without the use of the TC. I do not understand why the developers chose this pace, I see no need for games to last 3 - 5 minutes and yes I agree leaving the TC on is too slow but there should be a medium between the current pace and the TC.
I will play this game on the occasion, probably restarting the campaign on a higher level but I know I will not be engaging in any PVP.
Anyway this is my view, and a few of my friends who will not part with the cash or time to play this game, but I do feel the BFG:A is a missed opportunity or was targeted a too niche an audience.
