Before i start i just wanted to say i really enjoy this game, i think they did a great job on alot of aspects of it. The voice commands, the balance between units and just how it plays over all, but since I'm a Live player there is some complaints which actually ruin the game for me because i primarily play this game online.
I just wanted to see everyone opinion on this and i wanted to state mine.
Well first off id say it was a very smart idea with the Upgrades, it brings people coming back into the game. Many times i'd loose a battle or just get tired of playing and then id have enough CP to get a new upgrade or just the thought of oohh im this close to getting a new upgrade. Well this idea made me come back to the game many times, but the downside of this which is pretty dramatic. In The Theater of War if you play against people way higher rank then you, it is almost impossible to beat them. Even when id set up a almost superb defense a opponent would just use his upgrades to his advantage, for example i had my artillery all set up with transports and my opponent would just send a UAV and then use his artillery upgrade and send a huge missile that destroyed my artillery. I'd try to re-strategize but he would end up using special attacks and things that would ultimately ruin anything plan i had. Without a balance matchmaking The Theater of War is very frustrating at times because of these unbalanced matches. Now i understand you could not make a balance matchmaking because there is simply not enough people that play EndWar online. So instead you guys could have made the upgrades more simple and fair, instead of a new ability or better armor that makes the game unbalanced give us new skins or cooler armor, different flags something that makes us want to play more without making the environment unbalanced.
With that said i know there is the Open Match, were you can just play with all the upgrades on but as i said before there simply isin't enough people playing EndWar online, to play any of those matches if anyone is playing Endwar online its In The Theater of War, so you guys should have just taken out that other feature and add the local feature in Theater of War and make the online more balance.
What do you guys think of this?
