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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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...

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...in space you need to player a human player or fight multiple computer opponents for a real challenge.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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).

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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" !

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

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

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.
