Comrade Temuzu Posted March 17, 2012 Report Share Posted March 17, 2012 Heya. I finally registered with the latest patch, mainly because I was hoping that one day I might be able to start making a campaign for the game, but maybe in the future. But in the meanwhile, I might aswell share my views with you people.Alright, so Ill start with the negative ones. I dont think the game has been "optimized" so to speak? Ive yet to finish a single match that had more than two players, because after a certain point in the match the amount of people on the field, soldiers and workers alike, will start to make my game actually stutter, and thus unplayable. Is it just me?Secondly, wall building. My strategy (Ive been playing mainly as the Romans, Im tired of the others already ) is to slowly build my army, while focusing the building effort on economy and defenses. The problem with this is that building walls, well, is hard. Im pretty sure though that this is actually one of the features still in the making? If so, nevermind my whining, a line of towers and velites at chokepoints works just as well.Thirdly, the combat. I like the way it works, but Ive got one major problem: Skirmishers. Thanks to skirmishers, the battles tend to spread out everywhere, making it extremely annoying to watch as half my army is chasing some random javelineer into the distance while the rest are getting slaughtered. Is there something that could be done about this? Maybe Im doing something wrong?Now, speaking of the skirmisher problem, I figured I could give my personal idea on how to fix it: Give skirmishers less HP. They are all lightly armored, and still require quite a lot of hits to kill. In order to make them not underpowered, maybe it could be possible to make them extremely weak against melee damage but not against projectile damage? This would make it even more important to keep your skirmishers away from the fight, but when they do get caught they would spread the whole battle all around.I cant think of anything else at this instant, but Ill be sure to share if anything comes to mind. Cheers, I hope I posted this at the right place. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
