I'm not buying the whole

community manager = something is happening thing

As I've seen shady devs do It in the past as smoke and mirrors stalling type act before

Until I see something REAL like a dev post or a trailer then nothing else means anything

I read focus's plan for 2017, not even a mention of BFG:A so either nothing is going on or there is nothing worth mentioning

At this point I don't know if their plan is to shovel out one or more ship faction dlc and if it is I don't care

Another dlc won't do anything for this game if it's not free, the intrest in this has waned quite a bit and so people really arnt going to be all that intrested in buying dlc and you have you have to factor in that for all we ooh and say over them not every one likes or wants to play as nids or crons

Even if it's free the cycle from the previous dlc will repeat; people come in, everyone plays the same faction for a while lose intrest and then the player count plummets again

Well beside introduction of a new faction, would be nice to see something about the gameplay.

In my opinion problem is sooner or later you reach the max level and then it ends up to use same fleet.

As Orc you end up as long range 15.000 Zzap fleet, Space Marine use the 2 barges, eldar run and pulsar, tau you end up cloaked and as chaos as 15000 lances. In my opinion problem is sooner or later you reach the max level and then it ends up to use same fleet,
for same size.

If we look at the Meta, ramming and close combat suffer extreme, if you have to fight a long range fleets,
even there a lot of people try not to hit and run, but run and run.So fight vs fleets that do have higher level or 100 deployment points doesn't really help either. The point limit by ranked, does not really make it better.



-Why not instead unlimited points for ranked , so you can unlock all stuff on your ships ?
And it must be just cruiser clash. You just can't play this mode if your enemy set a mode where he does have an advantage.


- As next step, I would suggest to revisit the balance.
Just add side armies for the current fleets, that do have let me say " more fun to play stats"

Like chaos and eldar, that is designed for close combat.
Empire that does shoot and ram better. And is faster.
Orcs without zzap and gravity hooks, but faster.

So you keep the old faction and have a new with fun to play stats.

what game have you been playing?
none of those things are actually meta, none of those things are the only choise
ramming and close combat are the strongest way of playing
and the run and run, lets not balance the game around ranked cheezers, especially since ranked is the least played mode
and the 100 extra renown for lower lvl matter a lot at the lvls you get them, +100 in a 300pts game, the speedbump is at 600pts and having to field more doesnt help much then , the lvling is just too quick

and what is the point of tau cloaks? so many people play it and they all die, its good on station defense but thats it, as soon as you start the attack you lose

Don't have much to add besides: I happily gave you my money at launch, and even if you hadn't given me them for free, would've happily given you money for the Space Marines and Tau.

Let me keep giving you money, people. I'm more than happy to.

We keep getting the odd hint from a dev, but nothing with substance.

I do hope we can see some more balance updates, and some improvements to the AI though. For instance, AI can see your stealth fleets, making these perks useless in sp.


WTF are you talking about!! Asshole well if you say so...

I have hundreds of hours into this Game. I bought it Early Acces so i have a right to ask if the Game is Dead or not, easy as that. That doesnt make me an Asshole ;-)) Think before you INSULT PEOPLE!

If you know how many Bugs ive encounterd how frustrating it was you wouldnt have said that. I started the Campaign hundred times over, and still...

Who has the stupid idea of letting Ships Able to Warp out, when their Generator is Destroyed???

Have you thought he was replying to the post above his that talks about the devs doing a runner with the money, and not your OP?
