We are all waiting for it
We are all hyped about it
But wat is it?
The Mystery Mayhem
It's either new unit(s) or major balance changes because nothing else would happen.
they said no new units in the AMA's and also no balance changes as they like how it currently is. Minor balance changes sure. But don't expect anything drastic. Personally I hope it's some graphical updates
Bug fixing probably.
Not fun, but it has to be done!
Why would they plan a tournament for graphical updates? That just wouldn't make sense.
I don't even know what they could improve in terms of graphics anyway.
Hovercrafts are very hard to make apparentely, a new transport unit is the definition of a new unit, a new biome is cool but what else could they make(?), something minor is also possible but would sorta be a buzzkill, there's enough game enders, and amphibious units are already in the game (and they're also the definition of a new unit).
Dat run-on sentence.
Tier 3 confirmed
Who initiated the tournament? Did Uber suggest it because they thought there would be something gameplay affecting, or did Exodus hear "mystery update" and discover a theme for their next event?
The new APIs could be used in a proper tutorial (place a factory here (ghost); orders could be used run AI waves) Not much to do with competitive play, but perhaps the tourny could be part of a marketing push with that little detail taken care of.
I would say lets be realistic- this isn't going to be some major world changing thing (it's far too close to the Asteroid update which took months). Hopefully it will be something cool, just lets not expect miracles here- I'd rather keep expectations modest and be pleasantly surprised
Game should be more comfortable, at the moment it is full of defects/bugs. And I still do not see any advertising, much less completed projects have a much larger audience through advertising.
Afaik Uber asked eXodus to organize a tournament.
Wreckages plus a few little balance changes to make them important. Because I have no idea anyway so I just say what I _want_ by far the most.
Ant is totally making a welcome return to the unit roster...
hovercrafts and big transports can be already dismissed
as well as new biome and new gameender since we got asteroids already ..
so realy it will be rather something minor like a couple fixes
well or a really unexpected positive surprise. I would not mind at all
shush!! let me keep people´s expectations low for the big suprise damit!
I have magic powers.
And the Tournament thread is just screaming with hints that Uber planned on having a tourny with eXodus anyway
And the first of many that will be sold on the armoury. And I think it's a good idea before any one complains about DLC.
Uber official integrated mod manager?
I get the feeling I've missed uber teasing something?
Yeah, I don't know where this has come from either.
