Hello everyone, First I want thank Neocoregames For this game, I love it really i always wanted a game like that in the warmer 40k universe. And I could easily go fan boy on it and write a wall of text of everything I love in the game because it's a lot. But because i really want this game to become something big and successful I will not.
First and most important if you want this game to be successful DO NOT release it Q1, take more time. Because unless you give us a really old version of the game, it's not ready at all for a full release and will need more than just a month for fix all what it need. Don't forget many good game fail because they were release too soon.
Now let's see in more detail what need to be fix/rework.
- the movement and the targeting system : I'm not a developer but is really not smooth at all, the movement are often sloppy and get stuck or take really long way for go where you want. The target system is really horrible, first is really hard to keep your target when it's a pack of npc.
When I target a npc the weapon behaviour is really weird. Often it will shoot the ground (with sometimes even in a different direction) if the npc are on lower or upper position compare to me most of the time it can not shoot or if it shoot I can't touch them. So I guess the guns can shoot only in straight line with no verticality (expect in really rare time it works).
Now that would take a long post just for that so I will be short. First problem is pistol are always more powerful than the rifle or heavy guns. Second the way the game manage the spread on some guns (all the bolter line and some others) is weird because it damage only the npc you target. And again the way the targeting system work don't make the gun play smooth.
- Gears in genera :
So I don't want you think I don't like the guns and armor in the game, because they are really great and some sound for the guns are amazing (expect for all the plasma line the sound is horrible). But all the visual for the gear are too shiny to new, lack of details. That content is acceptable for a beta but for a game fully release it's really not that much. So for the gears just want point out 2 little detail I find in the game :
- first the problem with the comparison when hoover a new gun or signum. If I have 2 pistols and andwith the signum hoovering them compare the new item only with one of them
- Second about the fusion, first please let us fuse any kind of quality item, with a lower rate when fuse a higher quality with lower quality. Also, the fusion with pistol don't work. I had a relic pistol at 127pr when I fuse it with other relic it becomes a 120pr.
-class and skill tree : Really nothing amazing here, just 3 class, I know that the start of the game but that warhammer you can't run out of idea and inspiration. The skill tree are okishnothing to be exited
.- Other things : Stun and knockback ... : some factions like the rebel can stun-lock you so easily and too much often, also give the npc an immune timer to slow stun ... because I can stunlock npc and it gets too easy
-Npc : just about the rebel make it more diversify because the amount of grenade launcher and ogryn is not fun and make you stun lock all the time. Last time with a sentinel I get about 8 rebel with grenade launcher and 2 of each ogryn that wasn't fun at all.
Also, some daemons have too much high life regent, specially the one that come with the hellhoundboss.
Now in more general way, even if I love the game and want it to become something durable and big, It feels sloppy and going to an okish game style. About the gears look it makes me feel something missing, because when I play an arpg I love to get new gears in particular the ones with special look, this game have none of that for now. It totally miss the shiny effect that make people keep playing.
OK that was really longer that what I plan to write t the start. But I know the game is still in alpha version (more like beta honestly) and I know it will get improved over the time. I love it and I will keep supporting it. But please consider taking a bit more time for give the game a good release and make it something successful.
Also, a personal wish please in the future consider adding the mechanicum as playable class pleaseeee ;)
Good luck for all the devs of the game.
