Long time RTS player, like many here.
These are features that I consider ESSENTIAL.
-Customization of hotkeys and extra mouse buttons (this is the TRUE GAME BREAKER, and non negotiable. Not having the ability to add/remove/adjust the hotkeys/mouse buttons is a serious problem for the game’s longevity and competitive play)
-Further zoom out (sorry Devs, for my resolution —2560x1440—the way the game is now, it’s not even close to what it needs to be so that I can see my units and base). Yes, I read that you made it zoom further out, but I honestly see no difference from the closed beta zoom.
-Ability to disable the TC bell (seriously! this is such an annoyance)
-Flags/waypoint markers when I shift click for my scout or units to travel.
-Scores (yes, I read WHY you didnt include them, but I totally disagree, and would like to have the option at least)
-Ability to select villagers when click “boxing”, instead of military, and military instead of villagers. As it is now is ridiculous
-Ballistics tech in castle, making it possible to dodge mangonels/onagers and arrows…or at the very least make them a bit less accurate. As it is now, the arrows are just deadly every time.
The hotkeys and the zoom are MUST HAVES, and game breakers in my opinion.
Played the closed beta A LOT, didnt play the stress test much as the hotkeys kills it for me.
Yes, I’ll still buy the game, but only because YOU MUST see the logic of adding hotkey customizing, and will include it at some point. If not? Well…you got my $60, and I appreciate your work on this potentially enjoyable game, but it’s not worth playing, at least competitively, without the hotkey adjustments (my hands just dont work like the grid system you have installed).
that’s my 2 cents.
