Post Big Surprise in Multiplayer!!!

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


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.

from the games you thought are fun used simular formular as EaW (it's rather the other way round) such as: CnC, Dawn of War, BFME and may be Warcraft III
i think that's why you liked multiplayer EaW.
