    It looks pretty good - and then the cards come in.

    The combination of TBS and cards just doesn't really work for me for a game that wants me to get immersed in its world, build up something, etc. and not just play a PvP or PvE card match.
    Why not just have units and their abilities?

    Cards worked very well in Armageddon Empires actually (your deck represented the resources of your faction, and once you were out, you could not build anything else): They represented scarcity convincingly.

    But it is hard to pull off indeed.

    True, but Armageddon Empires has a strong boardgame vibe to begin with, cards are just fitting there. And as you said, cards there were your resources, which is a better approach to this than somehow making skills of units and units themselves cards. It's just weird to me that you have units on the battlefield but can only use "their" abilities if you happen to draw a certain card.
    As I said, fine in a game that is very abstract to begin with, but this tries to pull you into its world and setting.

    I saw this video yesterday and it seems this game might turn out to be a good one.

    From what I saw, its probably safe to say it will be MUCH better than "Thea 2: The Shattering", that for me ended up to being a regretful waste of d1p money.

    And since its close to release date, might be a good idea to pay attention to it.

    I lost my interest in this game after I discovered it's windows 10 only.

    Yeah, I saw something like that too... but I think is better to wait for someone to actually play the game with all clans to the end, because it might not work 100%.

    Didn't MS offered free upgrade to W10? It includes spying what music you are listening too. But, imagine some people even pay for that.

    Ahh most games work on win7 without problem,they write it win10 because win7 went out of support. The AoE remakes are for win10 but work fine on win7,wasteland3 is also win 10 and works fine....even if it is shit.

    Not necessarily. Six Ages requires Win10 and it will not run on Win7. So no guarantees.
