Proposal for campaign changes

#91

AI faction mastermind= Strategic AI= good.
Combat awards = maybe good ( except mercenaries and teleportation, and "the encouragement if difficult fights and small fleets" will not be liked by all) 
Removing garrisons= bad ( a lot of moving fleets will make the map messy)
Boarding is fine as it is. Hard but rewarding.
Before considering other ideas expressed in this thread: 
The AoE campaign is currently unplayable and not because of the designs or features. Constant crashes, phasing frag missiles , perma-in play ghost vehicles cause immense frustration.
Maybe take time with the changes and try freeing  FtD from accumulated bugs. 


Unfinished but polished game will be played and loved
Finished but buggy will not.

Getting rid of static garrisons would make the overworld a lot more dynamic in feel. But to some extend I do feel that garrisons could still have a place in the game, defending strategic hotspots or fortifications (the outlet of the Eriwick river, or fishing hole to give examples). I don't think garrisons should be the main source of enemy presence however. Do keep in mind that numbers of roving faction fleets will be kept in check because they will fight each other. And I really think there needs to be a system to allow the player to participate meaningfully in battles between factions - especially if they are allied to one given side.

As for the form that system takes, I think what is on the table is functional - but could be better. (not require teleportation for one).

I don't do boarding. The avatar is a way for me to get my camera on site. The river rat to me is back in his villain lair orchestrating the takeover, not the frontlines risking his hide. (disclaimer)

Boarding is completely imbalanced however. Capturing a couple of kalmars or marauders can jumpstart your early eco. I feel there needs to be some sort of tradeof. Either the return of NPC's and some short of shooter element to boarding fights again (would require extensive reworks) or only getting a percentage of resource when scrapping any given vessel in a scrapyard (with something akin to the old spawner/scrapper).
From what I see, boarding is not hard. Just time-consuming and tedious - with no downsides.

I most definately agree with your final lines. There have been a few updates in the past that didn't have features, just fixes. We need at least a few batches of those before the game is released, after the final additions are made. Undoubtedly the crew are eager to release their final product, but taking that little longer for the best impression pays massive dividents. Smile
