For the guide I had/have to look really deep into their game and the more I see, the more I can accept the game as it is, which, other than EA, has some solid people behind their desks with some serious efforts to really bring the people something to present, with the best possibilities they had (which even the poor Generals 2 developers might have had, but with far less possibilities to succeed; with the big holy cashcow above their hea
In my point of view, the game has done a glad job in filling a suddenly opening gap in the genre-sector of their aim market (i.e. the sudden refusal of the developement of C&C Generals 2). They did quite good task in only a little bit more than one
year which is competitive with the worlds best game-production-speed humans can give to a game. Remind youself that C&C Generals 2 was refused only around April 2014 and its still not 2 years passed by since then. For a full Realtime-3D-game of this size: dont you think this earns something?
How many other good RTS-Developers are there? Everything-is-Starcraft-or-what? (dont get me wrong: SC has its right place, but is this the end of our wishes and all dreams?) The poor Fireflys eitherwell have to carry the cross that the EA-Studios broke from: Only buggy/unfinished games since the point they handled their first serious success! (same story like Westwood < EA)
And now Eugen trys publish something that is free from all that and gets hailed... not good!
Would this developer be 'financially orientated, above the self-evident of survival will and the need for the well-earned dignity (which the germans beyond their law neither get), I would have
- not have given a price reduction to pre-orderers and owners of they recent games (+ beta-access)
- took additional money for the various DLCs they boosted Wargame with (for free for us)
- and I would have made a cash-cow á la Battelforge with auction house, Boosterpacks and Eugen-Points that you can buy to unlock all the units against additional money
|_> which would have resulted in a F-2-P-2-W C&C-Generals 2 as we recently succeeded to enforce our 'No' to.
So to finally come to an end:
Yes, more features would be nice, but I understand the situation they were and are and 'beyond all shits', the Eugens do a honorful task and if they did not surrender now, I think that they will manage that stuff!
And if Eugens dont succeed, we will have a long time without good RTS games if 1. EA and 2. Eugen systems failed to do the job that Westwood was disabled to do.
If you are bad in this game, use my guide it helps much, to a satisfiable degree if you plan / can accept to invest some time into this game as in any other and you will have some certain fun.
If I was Eugen now and had collected some unpleasant critics (beyond having made a satisfiable 80%-game
), I would not show myself 2 weeks later with a 'plaster' (which ^= the word 'patch') on my face but I would give tit for tat and set something more on the title. And thanks god that we can hope that this developer HAS the potencial to commit this step!
If we dont play AoA - what is the choice for that? All we can do then is to just go back to your old Generals 1(or any other of the older games... ... ... or Wargame
) - - but is that the final truth?
And thats why [why] not let us pro pro pro the game?
