Eternal Crusade outlines the balance of army compositions

IMPASSIONED SHOUTING

The forces of Eternal Crusade should be evenly matched but not identical, but that poses a bit of a mechanical problem. In the game fiction, Ork units should be mostly charging into battle with melee units, but in reality charging into automatic weapons fire swinging a sword is not generally accepted as a top-tier strategy for military operations. The latest set of community answers clarifies that Orks will have mechanical benefits that should help them charge and survive into melee range, which allows their forces to retain a lore-appropriate composition.

The questions also clarify that anti-vehicle weaponry will still have uses against certain heavily armored infantry targets. Melee options are also highlighted, with the design intent for melee combat being that it’s sometimes difficult to reach melee combat and is more about crunching weapons against one another rather than darting in and out of range. The team is also planning on transitioning into beta sometime early in 2016, although the exact date is still not locked in.

Vithorai Blackomen Samizdat Hollow promises like “plans” mean nothing until they come to fruition, right now it’s just disappointingly smaller scale then a warhammer game should be, and promises of “scaling it up in the future” amount to them asking for more money and telling us to trust them…. nope.

Koshelkin LordSolarMacharius Karl_Hungus chriskovo Exactly. I get why people are quick to judge these days with so many “Early Access” games are being botched etc. but that is the risk you take to help support a game that you want to be a reality.

Blackomen Samizdat There are 0 Arena/MOBA mechanics. It pretty much plays like Space Marine in it’s current state. Although, They plan to scale it up to Planetside like map size in the future.

Samizdat  Ditto, I pretty much have zero interest in it at this point. They keep dropping everything that would make it a good game, and replacing it with cookie-cutter arena/moba crap mechanics.

Karl_Hungus chriskovo I have to agree with chriskovo on this one. It’s looking more and more like an arena shooter and I ultimately think that’s where the game is going to wind up. There’s nothing MMO-ish about the game fleshed out from what I’ve seen and they have backpedaled a lot from their initial hype. Sigh.

Samizdat Somewhat of a similar situation with me, with the difference being that the main reason I’m still interested is the fact that it’s a Warhammer 40k game. Still, shrinking the scale of the game made my interest shrink from “Hyped!” to simply “Interested”.

I’ve watched a few of the streams and it looks like its been polished up a  lot in the past 6 months, just hope they can get it close to the original vision.
