Colonizing planets. We all know it can't work like it does now. Uber knows it can't work like it does now. But I think that, with the arrival of the anchor, the "base defense" of the sky, Orbital should be its own little section. Don't get me wrong, it really is, but think about it. We have doxes. These machines are intended for fast attack and rushing, mass production and cheapness in exchange for a light weapon. We have Ants (I CALL THEM ANTS) Slower machines intended for a more brutal attack in exchange for quickness and economy. These options don't exist with orbital. Whoever has more Avengers, wins the orbital fight. So, let's see what we can do here.... First similarity to a base: Unit base defenses (check) just like in game with a group of doxes which you can rush to defenses aid, we have avengers and anchors capable of protecting your territory. Second, orbital combat is one sided. The only crossovers are Umbrellas and Laser platforms. This means that, as you know, orbital feels really secluded. My whole point is, if you have enough of something, you can invade any planet or base. Think: Avengers are your fighters. They deal with other satellites. But what we seriously need is a fast attacking orbital unit capable of shooting down aircraft and non defended ground defenses so that you can invade a planet with ease. To counter this, enemies must send in an attack force to remove your teleporter. BUT WAIT! This part really encourages players producing orbital. That little orbital ground attacker can rip those units to shreds- so whats the point? Get satellites to remove those! Even a mobile anti-orbital unit could be in your arsenal. There is no way for planets to truly belong to players- I think Uber's intention with this game is that there were tons of planets- With a variety of Player bases on them. White, Blue, and Green are on the main planet! Black, white and Blue are fighting on another, while on the last, Green, White and Black are duking it out! This will make it very hard to fully secure a planet. Very hard. And thats what you want. Its nearly impossible to secure a base completely. With enough units, even your anti nuke behind flak behind t2 lasers behind walls can be taken out. And THATS how orbital should be.
