    I think the title basically says it all. Much like the Galactic War update we knew we would get it eventually, but we had almost no forewarning that it was going to be released when it was. So what do my fellow commanders think will be the next big addition that comes out of no where, or what do you want to come out of no where? For the latter question I can see a lot of people responding with "unit cannon" :p

    Myself personally though, I think gas giants might just be that nice out of no where update we could see. It not only gives us a new planet type to test out and help find the balance for, but it would have to bring along with it an expanded orbital set to flush out the actual use of the gas giant and give us some new toys for everyone who wants to see that layer expanded :)

    Proportional smashing and/or astroid belts is my guess.

    Or maybe a ladder?

    Proportional smashing is already kinda sorta a thing.
    Well, not proportional damage, but... well, take a look:

    Last four deleted posts: What happens when someone trolls and people respond. That results in actual, well deserved disciplinary action. Don't be that person. Stay on topic, or don't post.

    Something with the system generator maybe, to improve level design maybe. Maybe submarine's and submerged bases (last time uber spoke of this is a loooong time back afaik). Improved teleporters perhaps air/naval ones aswell. Or something big in space like the unitcannon or gas giants that would make sence.

    I love it how the explosions were humongous yet the craters were teeny.

    I really would like for there to be more to do in space. Asteroids, planet rings (that can be mined) and Gas Giants woudl be my preferences. Plus some units to take advantage of those things.

    Cliffs. Eliptical Oribits. Orbits on different planes? Multi system battles? I love seeing the sun and planets move by as I play and I'm all for more diversity in the systems to make it look as epic as it plays. That said some atmospheric effects on the planets for things like sunrise and sunset coloration changes. Rings on planets. random events like meteor showers, comets... some star going supernova in the backround...

    Speaking of super nova... might be an interesting game mechanic for timed battles to be decided before star explodes?

    They already have similar mechanic in PTE - you can set planet orbits so they will collide eventually, and incidental collisions in PTE = smash (everybody dies).

    I hope the next feature is a proper Automatching/Ladder system

    This can also be done in the main build, but it doesn't look anywhere near as awesome.
