    Not sure how I feel about this. I'm having trouble as it is, without having big holes in my defenses.

    Agree, I find this entirely retarded.
    Age Of Empires 3 had the same bullshit that you couldn't build gated walls on top of railway tracks. And for no reason, really.
    Just make a gate, ffs, it's not that hard to come up with that idea. And make it have less health than typical walls so it will still be the most vulnerable spot. But having guaranteed open gaps in your defenses is just a big no-no in a game all about turtling.
    Don't think I'll play this campaign if that is not changed.

    I'd imagine the amount of infected and other stuff would be different from pure survival.

    Still, it's just bullshit. There is no logical reason there couldn't be a gated wall on top of a railway track.
    I'm also extra salty about this because AoE3 fucked up walls so badly with this (and with the fact that everyone could shoot straight through walls lol)... I love walls in my RTS games and I hate when they aren't done properly.

    Hehe, but think about it. They live in this zombie infested world, and still haven't figured out how to build a gate for trains. No wonder there is only one city left standing.

    Interesting. But what could it actually be, except putting a meat wall of soldiers in the way?

    If it is like that, I don't like it. I don't want to sacrifice my men just to block the zombies out, just feels unrealistic, and besides that is for last ditch defenses!

    Will this go down in history as "Gategate"?

    REALLY?

    Ok this game is a total scam and you are pigshit stupid if you defend it in any way. You are supporting something that is half of a good RTS yet super hyped because it presents it in a gimmicky (and shitty) roguelike way that disguises its own lack of depth. I can explain why this is, but HAVE YOU EVEN PLAYED IT? My god there is barely any game. Go play Forged Alliance, repent.

    I really liked it. Like the artstyle, love tower defense games. The game just ticks a lot of boxes for me

    It isn't TD though because you just block the entrance, double the wall thickness, build a few towers to shoot shit, and you are set. Do that in each entrance of your base, grow until you get strong and then end the game. Really basic shit. It is like a good RTS but with 80% of the game missing. Get Dungeon Warfare or the sequel, best Tower Defense games out there. For a real RTS get Forged Alliance or Supreme Commander 2 and mod it. Or the early C&C games.
