Recent developments?

My FB feed popped up with news about an update for Cursed, so thought I would drop by here and ask the ubiquitous: "have there been any recent developments?" :) Godde still king of S44? XTA get any play these days? SWIW playerbase still basically just me? What's Smoth cooking up these days? Anyone e...

Re: Proposed balance changes - discuss

you should be asking yourself what would happen if: - slightly improved t1 artillery and rocket kbots - slightly faster commanders with a longer range laser but a higher cooldown dgun (not as effective against groups of short ranged units but less vulnerable to being kited by med range ones) - slig...

Re: Proposed balance changes - discuss

whatever an overpowered "swiss knife" will still underperform if you use it as a "hammer". buffing t1 artillery and rocket kbots won't take away the role of either peewee/flash (better/faster raiders) or t1 missile units (longer range harassment and anti aircraft) and will lead to more satisfying X...

Re: Proposed balance changes - discuss

What situation? Who are you replying to? gimmicky and somewhat broken xta balance maintainers are afraid to touch (yes, you too) requiring replays that clearly show problems is unreasonable as most games start (and some end) with t1 missile unit spam with some peewee/ak or the vehicle equivalents m...

I know I haven't played in many months, but just stopped by to check the forums and... nerfing t1 amphibs? Has anyone won a game using them? They were very underpowered for cost last time I used them. The flexibility of the unit was "costed" such that they lost hands down to equal cost of either sea...

Re: Bitches dunno bout mah zerg

I have always thought APM is a poor measure of skill. I have consistently beaten players 1v1 with far higher APM than myself.

Good decisions, planning, anticipation, and execution matter orders of magnitude more than the speed of your input.

Re: *A games econ help?

Having played a fair bit of Forged Alliance recently, I would suggest that a fundamental difference is the lead/return on metal/mass extractors. In comparison to supcom, *A mexes are very cheap, and don't require any downtime or build power investment to achieve efficiency (a la storage surround/upg...

Re: Imperial Winter - where things stand, and how you can he

As one of the people who tested this game intensively throughout the period Zsinj was active, I am very excited about being able to finally play this game with the wider community. Sure it is gonna be very dated, and nowhere near the PC Gamer headline-grabbing smash it could have been, but it will s...

Re: New Console Generation

Halo, Forza, Fable, Final Fantasy, Gears of War, Catherine, Dark Souls. Plus months in advance Mass Effect, GTA4, etc. Of that list, Forza and Dark Souls are the only 2 that I would be excited about. I'm not trying to diss Xbox etc, just I've always been curious as to what drew the self-proclaimed ...

Re: New Console Generation

I bought my Xbox 360 because of exclusive games I wanted to play. You missed out on a lot, but you don't know it. Could you elaborate on which games those were please? I was discussing console exclusives with a few friends recently. Beyond Halo, we struggled to think of a single other example of Xb...

Re: Atari sells TA's intellectual property

I agree with Paulada. Spring 1v1 scene completely crumbled away. Yes you can sometimes get 1v1 of either ZK or BA, quite often with the same ~5 people, and in my experience those people will be very very egotistical and competitive, but only play that 1 game on the engine, and only on 1 of a choice ...

Re: Armour groups - Test

Armour groups can have a place in RTS, but I don't think they would enhance XTA's gameplay. They can add a layer of very unintuitive unit interaction, and I think XTA has enough of that through the combination of economy and the micro factor/nuance of some units. If the game was conceived of as usin...

Re: Air repair pad can move and patrol

I used to use them extensively, but i had a heavy preference for air in larger games. Has air autorepair been substantially buffed recently? (why?)

Carriers are also idle builder selectable.
