  1. A solution for the autoresovle issue

    It should have worked this way from the beginning. *edit: In fact this would not even require the use of AI/bots, it could be handled by a few lines of well written code.
  2. ATs retreat into skirmish

    I have also been complaining about this one for a long time. Just assume Reto employees are your officers and that kinda helps explain why the ATs retreat in the wrong direction.
  3. Vehicle Gameplay Update - Deploy

    logged into prototype server, selected every available battle. Sat looking for a battle for 1 hour (had to tell the system not to auto log me during that time). Never got into a battle to see the new system. Tried to get into a battle yesterday as well with no luck either.
  4. My thoughts on the topic. glad to see people are still banging their head on the keyboard trying to make a difference.
  5. New Map & Building Concepts

    Modding is one of the best ways to get your foot in the door. At the very least you have a portfolio you can show whoever you are applying to. I am not sure you are going to love this piece of advice but one of the more successful ways i have seen people get into the industry is by starting in QA. That way you can create a relationship with the development team and work on perfecting the tools on your down time. When they start looking for a designer you will know the team and the tools and be first in line for an interview. Not saying QA is the right path with reto necessarily but if you are really trying to get your foot in the door anywhere this may help. Regardless, reto should still consider you because you are so passionate about this game and they could, at the very least, leverage that passion to get you to agree to work for less money than a journeyman LDer who could care less what project they are working on. Keep your chin up Edward, it is not an easy field to get into and its not an easy field to stay in but if you keep working at it you will eventually get your break.
  6. New Map & Building Concepts

    @RadicalEdward2 Have you worked as a level designer for any other company or game? I know you have put in lots of hours on the topic for this game I just dont remember if you have any previous experience. I could see you working remotely if you were a seasoned ld veteran but if this would be one of your first real ld jobs in the industry i would recommend working on site. That and their proprietary engine as well as the US/EU time difference would make it super hard to do the job efficiently remotely. That said, You seem more than willing, extremely hungry, and still very passionate about this game. Reto should definitely consider bringing you in to try and help out with designing levels. The only negative i can see is that the language barrier might be a bit tricky but lets face it, the entire world speaks English at this moment in time so tricky but not impossible.
  7. US Army AT Boycott?

    When did he leave? New maps pushed to 2019 then?
  8. The Heros and Generals Dance

  9. Do we have a realistic timeline on when the the "tech upgrade: war servers" task will move out of early development let alone be complete? https://trello.com/c/NBvXhPr1/23-tech-upgrade-war-server Do we know what changes are top priority to the devs once that happens? The RTS designer is the lead programmer of the game and we have never even seen him on the forums discussing RTS issues with players. Maybe he was in one dev stream but did he even talk about the RTS then? Sfscriv I appreciate the effort and time you put in to taking ideas from the forums and combining them with your own to present real goals that would mostly make the game better. Unfortunately I truly believe they are so far away from making any meaningful changes to the RTS that right now we are just blowing smoke up each others rear ends. I want this game to succeed and like most of you i think in order for it to do that it needs this unique game mode to shine. However the truth of the matter is that It is currently doing the opposite and there is no real "light at the end of the tunnel" approaching anytime "soon". If this is just an exercise of what we 'hope and pray' the game will look like in 2021 then by all means continue blowing smoke. p.s. Sorry for being so negative, my current ebb and flow of HnG passion is deep in a valley.
  10. This is Why Germany Loses the War

    Fixed this for you. I doubt any of those US players would be using alts. Even if they changed the way they play since i have been away I know they are smart enough to know that they wouldnt need to use Alts to pop an over stacked AF against GE. This is one of the reasons why i have stopped deploying almost everything in this game and rarely find any motivation to play anymore.
  11. Help us shape the future of the Dev Streams

    The streams have improved over the years so thank you for that. A simple suggestion on how to improve the streams further would be to spend a little time reviewing the questions/content that will be covered prior to the live stream. Weed out the questions that have been asked to death or the ones that do not make any sense. Figure out the meaning of any slang prior to going on air and looking like you are not familiar with your own game, even if it is just lost in translation phrasing. Polishing out those awkward moments that make your company look out of touch would greatly improve the quality of the stream in my opinion. Not that it is a huge issue but every dev stream there is at least one, maybe two, moments that make players cringe super hard. I know time is money and you cant spend too much extra time of the streams but i think with a little extra preparation you guys could improve a lot in this area.
  12. Help test Assault Team optimization on prototype

    Years of suggestions and pointing out issues with the RTS. Why the hell am i going to spend any time testing changes that are going against basic issues pointed out by numerous community members over the last few years. About Fing time new ATs were allowed to be named whatever... what about the rest of the playerbase who is done buying new ATs? YAWN... more half assed fixes that are not truly understood by the devs. Lost in translation or some sh*t i guess. More of the same. See you guys in 2019 when we have a single new map...
