I do have a lot of Fun playing this game, Thank you Dev's for making this awesome game.
It does need a lot of work but so far i like it.
So after i got in a few Custom games with the bet Players, I learned a lot of thing from them, game-play wise
- All the players started with PHC, and they just build Brutes all the way to the end, then they added some Zeus and other T2 units.
- after they did send some air to the back of my base and took down my extractors and some of my Structures
- Damn this game does need a lot of APM, some times I feel even more than Starcraft
- Substrate does really bad Against PHC, right now there is no way to win against somebody who rush with brutes, and lates add some Zeus to those brutes.
Ok now my thoughts about all that.. Playing like that it make a lot of players loose interest in the game right now so it does need a lot of optimizations,
If i do the same as the other players and build Brutes non stop, the player with more APM will win easy! because you need to send troops in every way possible to take regions plus some OP air, there shoul be a way to make some cheap Anti air structures or Units that can stop some Air Rush's, I mean let me explain Something. the player who make air First and send it out there will win the game, it take a lot of time and is expensive to build Anti Air Structures, well its my way of thinking, I will need to keep playing against those players to get a better hang of the game, and see if there is a way to Counter Brutes.
Its just not fun to play like that, i know its all about winning so who cares how somebody play, so My recommendation to the Dev's is to look into that and try to find a way to counter all that rush by creating a new Unit or Structures or change the Brutes.
Why Only Brutes have 6 units? and the rest have 1. or 3. Right now Quantity is winning against quality.
Lets say i want to build a Group of Martyr or a group of Reaper and i bring 1 group of Brutes, the Brutes destroy the Reapers, or Martyr, so just fix any Substrate unit that can go against a group of Brute to destroy each other at least.
That's all that i have to say abut the game so far, Still it does not make me stop playing, i just want to get better and better, but those Brutes need to be addressed early in the game.
