Online: general feedback

Postby Kawila » Mon May 22, 2017 10:03 am

general feedback:
I love the game. It is fun und is great to excercise strategic and tactical thinking. (Yes: I used to play chess...)
And it has a lot of valuable additional features compared to GBWG.
The current version is already quite stable. Not easy anymore to find bugs. Confirmed by they relation of feature idea/requests to bug reports in the forum.

For me the main pain points now are:
(1) The Swap Teams Bug
(2) The lack of notification when it's your turn
(3) The very high battery consumption (IOS)

I could imagine that these are showstoppers for some potential users.

Concerning Balance. I might have player more 1:1 online matches than anybody else. And I usually win. But I feel very much as a beginner and cannot really judge balance finesses. Just some feelings:
- player 2 bonus 250 is ok in general. I think a few maps favor player 1 others might slightly favor player 2.
- Dont change too much too fast.
- I hope we'll have an ongoing long term process to discuss and adjust balance settings.
- Mobility and cheap units are even more important in larger maps than in small maps. I doubt that Tech Centers and factions with fancy expensive units really get useful against good human players in larger maps.

ELWG consumes a lot of battery on Android too, so I can only play it at home with charger nearby. They are probably going to optimize it (fancy effects on/off is coming)

There's no special battery drain mode. We use all the facilities of the hardware. If your phone cannot support that then you need a new phone or perhaps one that doesn't put an 8 core cpu, a and playstation 3 video card on a machine powered by an AA battery.

Seriously, I get bored of hearing this one. Its just not the game's fault and they only software fix is to just play wordsearch games in text mode.

Back when I was actively playing beta, I think through version 2 or 3, battery was always acceptable. I use an iPhone SE. I'm pretty sure Combat Monsters (understandably) used a lot more.
