nettie - you don't have any particular issue with the size of the maps, the resourcing or the networking?

The level of zoom is killing me. Effective control of your units around the map is a nightmare. Huge step back from Wargame.

The game needs more zoom out, not wider FoV.

With wider FoV you will get ugly fisheye effect and straight lines will become distorted. It will the make game look inevitably ugly, and too wide FoV can make people as much motion sick as insufficient FoV. What the game simply needs is to extend zoom level, not increase FoV. Simply cap maximum zoom level somewhere similar to the tactical overview (or whatever it's called, the ` key thing) so we can zoom out more.

I totally agree when I heard this was from the makers of Wargames I was thrilled, finally wargames action with base building! Seriously you did not need to copy the Act of War zoom mechanics, this is what made the original game poor in the first place, We want command level tactics not zoomed in garbage like this, thanks...

Just picked up the beta and wow, yeah, the level of zoom is terrible. Push both levels of max zoom significantly out.

The satellite/grid display being forced on you when you zoom out also isn't great. Having to spend my play time with most of the map being an ugly gray grid just to be able to see anything isn't particularly enjoyable. Just make satellite camera mode a button toggle instead of something forced on you by zoom level.

The guys here have explained enough, I'll just drop that "ZOOM OUT PLEASE" here and leave till it happens..


Didn't know I was paying 38$ for a headache.

Just use this mod: viewtopic.php?f=192&t=53660

I urge any zoom level apologist to just install the mod and try how it feels. It feels sooo much better for me and the people on Gamereplays TS who tried it as well.

Even guys who aren't Wargame veterans find it way better with the increased zoom.

I have to support this.

I spend literally the whole game in satellite view. Using satellite view doesn't bother me... but I probably shouldn't have to do it.

Satellite View just looks like shit compared to the regular game and that annoys me.

Ditch and give us a better zoom by default. If you want to tie a higher zoom to power FINE but remove that crappy satellite mode.
