Disappointed ...

#8

As with a lot of people here I have played my fair share of Harbringer and now spend my time directing my fleets across sectors sieging them. For a game that was just released I am very impressed by what you have wrought here. Is it perfect, no. Does that mean it isn't good, no either! I understand the blood, sweat, tears, time, money and lack of sleep that went into this endeavor. I'm happy with what I have and hope for better in the future. Here is my thought change:

Tech Tree: I don't mind this so much. I don't really think it gives that much variability to the game at current. The in game upgrades work well for what they are at first, but once you get the hang of the game the high tier is just a time sink. By the time I unlock the Death Ray I'm finishing the map. The solution that I see lies in the unlocks on the map screen.

First, and it must be said, I hope this screen will get more options as time goes on. Love it as is but have high hopes. Now, my suggestion. The tech tree unlocks are fair, allowing for a different twist to the game and different strategies. Once you unlock all tech trees, and I say all for a pseudo balance, you could have the option of researching the individual techs. first level tech cost 300 xp, second level tech 400 xp, third level tech 500 xp, and fourth level tech 600 xp. For example, I have finished purchasing the extra tech trees and decide I really like the Photon Bombers but do not have the time during a match to get it and have it make a lasting impact. Now, for 300 experience points I can permanently research and unlock the Missile Turret, thus starting each map with that already opened. That cuts down research time for the Bombers. I can play more, refining my play style and strategy, and eventually pay 400 experience points for the X1 Missile Bomber.

This rewards the player for playing, gives a feeling of growth in game and serves to build on immersion. When you feel like you are actually building and training your fleet it can only serve to help the game.

More to follow!
