Space or Ground?
I thought I would set up a poll to see how many of you liked space more than ground or the other way around.
I, like Space battles much more than ground battles. :vsd:

Snafu7 07-24-2006 10:28 AM

Definately space battles, I never really enjoyed the ground battles, they never really seemed to have much of an RTS feel to them I guess.

Darth Anarch 07-24-2006 10:41 AM

I prefer the space battles. The ground battles aren't horrible or anything, they're just less fun. Although from the looks of things, the expansion pack with its many new features will change that.

ImpElite 07-24-2006 10:44 AM

Yeah, it looks like ground and space will finally be just as fun as the other...... We hope

Feagildin 10-18-2006 12:07 PM

Space is so much more fun than ground, there isn't even a comparison. Maybe that will change in the expansion.

YertyL 10-18-2006 12:29 PM

The thing about space battles is that you can't do much more than attack-move to the space station and try to get your ships around those asteroids floating everywhere.
I perceive land battles to be a bit more tactical; However space battles look pretty cool and are fast-paced.... overall I like them both.

Darth_Extas 10-18-2006 04:53 PM

Personally I do like the space... They are more "flashier" and get into the action quickly.

wedge2211 10-18-2006 07:52 PM

YertyL has a good point. While I absolutely love playing around with Star Wars spaceships, there are more tactical options in ground combat. I'm betting that will change with the addition of the Zann Consortium and its unique units (plus the appropriate Rebel and Imperial counters) and the larger space maps...

Rust_Lord 10-18-2006 11:45 PM

I agree with Wedge; space is way cool but there are more options with land combat even though you get a lower pop cap you still get numerous units with one purchase with most companies. I find ground combat on medium or hard, way more fast paced and intense than in space you need to player a human player or fight multiple computer opponents for a real challenge.

Talonfire 10-24-2006 02:39 PM

Space battles are prettier and faster paced so they have that appeal, but I also like ground battles just as much since they require more strategy. Basically I like them both evenly.

darthfergie 10-24-2006 03:47 PM

Let's put it this way...I played SW:Rebellion for years after it came out for one major reason, the space battles. I played ST:Armada for one reason, the SW mod space battles. My passion for star wars has always resided in the space battles. I always wanted a large scale control over space battles and I wasn't getting my fix until EAW came along. It's not really all that I wanted, but it's a very good substitute. :)

The ground game...well...that wore thin within the first hour or so of playtime. It's still enjoyable every once in a while, but it is definitely the weaker of the two.

Darth Khasei 11-02-2006 03:44 PM

It was space by far before. However, with FOC and all the new units I've been playing ground almost exclusively during the testing of some new ground units I modded into FOC.

I can say with the new optimized engine and unit variety ground has become my favorite way to play. Space is still coolness, but ground rocks!

thedoctor44 11-11-2006 07:06 PM

Space certainly, however, I think ground battles have been incredibly improved in FoC - especialy given the fact most of the maps seem larger or at the least, much more interesting in terms of environment. Still, space is my favourite. Afterall, this is STAR Wars.

Thor the Bassis 02-25-2007 01:49 PM

Space but needs to be modded up a bit.
Then again everything improves with mods (even if you just laugh at comic mods it still improves the game).

Lt_Justin 03-06-2007 11:53 AM

I hate ground battles the reinforcement points pise me off

Thor the Bassis 03-07-2007 12:40 PM

I don't hate ground battles - its more a case of having to do them to win the planets and they B O R I N G.

If there are any good mods out there that liven up ground battles please post.

xhh2a 03-07-2007 07:47 PM

Or rather just REMOVED them..but then income would be hard....

Jmaster3265 03-12-2007 08:18 PM

I like both but i do enjoy land battles better, that is my opinion. I like to use the heroes and enjoy using their special abilites.

ImpElite 03-12-2007 09:05 PM

Wow, this thread has lasted quite a while! :twogun:

Jeff 03-12-2007 10:23 PM

I have with more fun with space battles because they're something that before EaW I'd never done before.

STAR.WARS.92 03-22-2007 04:02 PM

love space cos you can get star destoyers (ahhhh)

Titanius Anglesmith 03-22-2007 09:29 PM

I like both, but I like space battles a little bit better. I just wish the unit cap was a little higher.

Ctrl Alt Del 03-23-2007 10:26 PM

I like Space much more than land. Land could have been so better if it wasn't so slow moving.

teodesetkata 10-27-2007 03:41 PM

Space or Ground?

I like space battles more than ground battles. I mean, if it weren't for the space battles, this game would be incomplete.

I even sometimes auto-resoulve land combats... I'm not very good at 'em.

LordOfTheFish 10-30-2007 02:20 PM

I prefer ground battles.I guess cause I like having more units.

Kadika 11-20-2007 01:35 PM

Space, its just awesome. and thats what Star Wars is mosty about

Crimson Emperor 01-01-2008 08:04 AM

I prefer space as it's more SW related imo. However if they would have done better, bigger land maps it would have been great.

Lordjedi 01-01-2008 10:41 PM

I prefer ground battles becuase it has so many units

RaptorTank4 06-23-2008 05:30 AM

I hated the ground battles. Absolutely loved the space battles :D

Joker II 09-04-2008 05:12 AM

I'd like to see both, where you first have to fight it out in space and then you can send in your land units.

The only BUT is, it has to be HUGE, I mean, I don't want to fight the land battles with a small amount of men, I want the feeling that I'm fighting the epic battles that where portrayed in the movies !

I'd rather have them wait a few years more untill such a thing is possible then to see "another" game presenting so called "battles" when in fact, they look more like small "skirmishes" !

mattig89ch 09-08-2008 09:38 AM

I enjoy a good space battle more so then the ground battles. Its just good old fashoned fun to kill the oposing ships. not too mention that the mon calmari ships rock!!!

GwannaSauna 10-16-2008 02:11 AM

I like Space battles better because you don't have to worry about someone taking over a landing zone or defending a certain part of your base. Plus, space battles have awesome units, and I dunno, there just fun.

Not to get off-topic, but if they made ground battles more Command and Conquer 3-ish, I would probably be playing ground battles more often

Chevron 7 locke 12-03-2008 09:51 PM

I like ground battles better. it's much easier to set up a defense perimeter on the ground then in space

Darth Leap 04-07-2009 11:26 AM

Space, always. Space is a lot more fast paced. Ground battles are not as realistic. They are usually too small.

Lord of the Sith 09-01-2009 02:24 PM

I like both. With a good mod they are surely more fun than the original one. Land battles are really what a SW RTS game never had of this quality. Maps should bigger with more variety of things however.
Space are fun even if some time the space maps are too small and last too fast.

I feel exactly the same way.
