Re: AoA's tone and approach is too cartoonish

My hope is that while AoA is its own game and will have a different gameplay mechanic from the Wargame series, it would use the ranges, proportions, details and animations, sounds, and explosions, etc found in Wargame. You'd have tanks firing halfway across the map if this happened. Perhaps even th...

Re: Upgrades and General powers

If you've played the game, you would've noticed units climbing the veterancy ladder.

Rookie -> Trained -> Hardened -> Veteran -> Elite.

This text floats above a unit when it ranks up in veterancy.

Re: New vip beta is coming! Featuring Chimera faction

I'd love it if Eugen would open up a new registration for people who missed out on the first one ):

Re: REQ: Infantry Squad system

Besides, if you want it to be simple, why not just create groups of 6 marines, or something like that? No, because that's not the same thing. With set squad numbers you can do some neat balance tricks - make a stronger higher tier infantry unit have lower squad member counts whereas weaker lower ti...

Re: Zoom - Minimap a step backwards

I don't get it as well, why anyone would vote for a fixed level of zoom... When you have the engine for it, give everyone the freedom to choose the level of zoom they are comfortable to play with. If you want to be "close to the action" zoom in, if you want the "board game feeling&qu...

Re: REQ: Infantry Squad system

Any form of squad system is better than none at all, so yeah support the idea!!! @trineroks Think you are confusing between the mechanics, the custom squad system here works NOTHING like in COH and MOW. There's no retreating option for inf, and not much point in reinforcing existing squad to the po...

Re: Zoom - Minimap a step backwards

Why do you think no one plays Wargame zoomed in? Because you cannot possibly compete with other players when you restrict your viewport like that when others can see the entire map. So it forces you to zoom out as well, hence giving Wargame that "icon board game" feel that traditional RTS...

Re: Favorite Specialization

I mean, the '87 works solely because it's the heaviest tank you can get in Soviet mech. In all other regards it's pretty terrible.

Re: Zoom - Minimap a step backwards

Is this really an advantage if everyone can do it ? - Honestly, this sounds like something some people don't want to adjust to ? Which is a fair way to be, but hardly a good reason to keep the current view IMHO. Nope, not really if everyone can do it. But it might force people who prefer playing zo...

Re: Do we have to wait 2-4 yers for a new Wargame?

Growing up with a rather extensive history with RTS (starting with Starcraft Brood War/Dune II/Tiberium series/Red Alert series, to more obscure titles like Real War Rogue States, to Company of Heroes and now the Wargame series), I'd be lying if I said I'm not interested in another base building RTS...
