I haven't played many rounds of the game so far, while i do enjoy a nice game i must say i do not enjoy people who will not take the time to learn and not even care about other human players who are coming in the game and bothering to actually play.
The game itself is colorful, simple with an rts touch yet challenging, it is all about patience and decision making. The game runs well and option are various and the engine i can say runs pretty smooth. Overall the game is quite appealing to a veteran player like me who enjoys the change of theme. While the commanders will need balance later ofc they quite well designed and controls and very smooth which makes the game a delight to play.
However, i will say this right now as a fair warning and as someone who wants to have a game that is worth the time. Since the game is still in beta testing there is still time to work on this. The story is simple, then there was "Dota" a map created upon warcraft 3 the first long developed moba map. And then came "league of legends" a cancer in itself that slowly became terminal over the years infecting each and every game of the genre and its variants completely ruining all the pleasure of pvp and challenge. All the games from dota, dota 2, hon, smite etc have been dying one after another simply because "LoL" community of players which is the worst in the universe managed to just completely destroy every game they see free. The most recent example is Hots from blizz, the alpha and beta we almost clean i dare say, not without bad players but the day it got released to the public in barely a day thousands just stopped playing simply because it was invading and ruined on the very first day.
now this bad mentality comes from the terrible lead given by riot in such a trash form as freedom of doing whatever you want at the expense of the other player's leisure. What they did is make skins, ditch community control and player awareness. They implanted this cancer model into the gaming world which today destroys any new game that doesn't heed the cries for help.
There are 3 important aspects to gaming that are the most important to me specially in mmos.
first off is learn the game and keep learning until you really cannot learn anything, do not think you are so much better than everyone that you just go in q with normal players and ruin their games without giving a shit. if you cannot play right ai is there to help you fix your problems and still give you rewards.
secondly when you come in a game respect other players if you want to be respected. The first form of respect is play like a human would with their teammates in mind. A game being free does not mean you can do what you want at the expense of their leisure time. If you want to do whatever you feel like go in ai no1 with be pissed at you there.
thirdly if you know you cannot play a game do not stay in it, simply go away and do not stay to ruin games just because it is free and you are sexually frustrated. You just make this harder for other players to progress, to learn more and most importantly to enjoy.
Toxic? hah ofc!! why wouldn't someone be toxic when there are people who do not care, will not learn, will not cooperate, will not even listen. respect is not defined by words you use but the mentality you adopt when coming a human based community. And that is where riot totally won the trophy of worst ever.
So i urge you right now, start with community management as a top priority otherwise your game will die stillborn as i have already seen many. This is based on my first normal game with humans here, i must say it was terribly unenjoyable for the better half because of a certain player who clearly thinks he is better than everyone and doesn't need to give a shit. he has been playing 10 days he said, yet the first thing i saw is intentionally dying all the game, trolling, not following simple instructions and ruining the game for the other 4 people. And this gentlemen! is how a game is killed.
Signing off right after with a huge feeling of disgust for the time wasted actually trying is not the best feeling you get. I will come by again to see, but honestly if nothing is done well good luck i will not be part of another massacre.
