Yesterday,i tryed for the second time,to play EAW online.
First time(a few months ago) i couldnt connect because of the nat issues.
I was already bored with EAW single player missions and didnt touch
this game for over 2 months.
I started with custom games 3v3 and 4v4,and what a SURPRISE
THE GAMES WERE ALOT OF FUN
I never thought that this game would have such a joy and pleasure to play online.
I played all the C&C series,Warcraft III,AoE,BFME,Starcraft,Warhammer40k
games and didnt thought that EAW would catch those games in Strategic depth and atmosphere.
Man i was wrong.
I waited so many years, for a good STAR WARS RTS and i knew Petro made a real good job but i didnt expect it that good (at least for my personal view).
Well i dont want to say that EAW is the best RTS of all time(of course not)
but i see here in the forums and at other sides alot(some form) of bashing and dissapointment against EAW.
Just give it a try (most connectivity problems have been solved)
and let the fun begin.
Of course there are some(minor or major) balance issues like:
Artillery is still too strong
Hypervelocity Gun and Ion cannon should NOT
fire against enemy SpaceStations (you should win a game by fighting an army not by clicking
a button) or decrease the firing range by half of the map
T4bīs are a bit op (effective against almost everything)
Vader in Space is too weak
M.Falconīs ability was uber but now its too weak
Speeders should make lesser damage vs buildings (im a rebel player and i love those things but they are TOO effective)
Most needed things are:Replay function,Mods playable in the games options
menu without deleting or changing some XML files.
Thats all what i can think of now.
And again Good job Petro.
So just go online and have some fun people.
