My thoughts so far.

#8

Ok I have finished my first campaign and have the following observations.

1. The scale of the game doesn't match the research system. The current research system is in broad terms the size of a full size big battle RTS. The game is currently a faster paced sskirmish rts and the raw number of options to research means the bulk of the tree is waisted and left unused. I discussed a few solutions for this in another thread an so won't repeat them here except to say that increasing the scale of the combat would go a long way to fixing this.

2. The available weapons are too generic. By this I mean that the lack of diversity in range means that players will simply grab the biggest gun they can easily get and max it out and the bulldoze the enemy starbase. Granted the small maps and limited number of units available don't lend lend themselves to a wide variety of more specialized weapons but it feels like a waisted opportunity both to add more character and encourage more use of the research tree more completely. A wider variety of ranges open up a wider range of tactics and can be balanced with things like less effectiveness on shields or hull.

3. Fighter squadrons are too small. Add back the squad size upgrade from harbinger.

4. Marine reinforcement is too slow. I suggest increasing the speed on the marine clone and adding the same field to the starbase.


5. Repair is too expensive in the form of rps. Simple and obvious fix.

6. Player stations need put on par with enemy stations. Staions should have a limited self repair and other bonuses if they aren't going to be as powerful as the others races.
