    The finals of 5000€ tourney the devs organized are currently on. First play-offs were yesterday, second ones are today and the final finals will be tomorrow. The pro Starcraft, Warcraft, etc. players that devs invited (for some cash apparently) to compete against the dudes that beaten the qualifiers have quickly gotten rekt after two 10-minute games, because they apparently didn't bother to play the game for more than a few hours before the tourney. :hahano:

    According to negative steam reviews:
    -pathfinding issues are abundant(common in RTS tho, would have to look it up to see how bad it is)
    -promised coop campaign(apparently?) cut or not implemented
    -ladder system and matchmaking "coming soon"
    -very few skirmish/multiplayer maps(3 for 1v1, 2 for 2v2, 1 for 3v3...)
    -apparently there isn't much change from the open beta in content etc.
    -some unit selections issues(???), units that are already selected stay selected even if you select others with control group, don't understand how on earth does it work(would have to play it)
    -controls in general are clunky

    Who on earth gave it such high scores?

    Is there any other campaigns or do i have to play with the irish cumdumpster? The game looks interesting but i do enjoy a good campaign in my RTS games. That shit head looks mighty annoying,thus if it is the only campaign,then not worth downloading.

    Their Steam page is just a bunch of promises about what they'll include in the game eventually, in direct violation of how Steam requires you to list features actually in the game (for anything not in Early Access).

    Fucking lol.

    No multiplayer co-op, and I saw a Japanese dude complaining that there is no support for Japanese/translation implemented in the game. This will most likely get ugly if they don't do something about it.

    Lol they'll just remove the text from the store description and ignore everything. Also there's no description for their "deluxe" edition and looking at GoG, it's

    God, crappy publishers/devs give this industry a bad name.

    Game is actually less interesting to me now than it was previously -- been watching a guy who plays CoH2 (pretty well, for that matter) play this and while he enjoys it, it's easy to see that it is definitely unfinished.

    Fuck,i played like 3-4 missions and deleted this garbage. The game is really shit,the AI is retarded,most units are useless,the enemy just spawns wave after wave of enemies,the "great hero",the dev's read head fetish girl is useless later on. The broken cover system is the main problem of the game,it is made with the idea of you commanding 1-4 squads and being able to manually position them,but you end up controlling groups of few squads each,thus they just end up sitting exposed while only one squad gets in position. Also infantry is useless once the enemy begins spamming flamethrower mechs,and anti-armour cannons are garbage because they don't have a rotation that allows them to face the direction the enemy is coming while having extremely small vision window. When you click on enemy for cannons to attack,well they decide that they should just unpack the cannon and move next to that enemy so they could shoot it. The game also lacks a healer unit that could patch up your units after a battle thus you end up running back to base to "heal" the unit,while the enemy is just spamming enemy without care for resources lol.
