Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / 2.2 Balance discussion thread
« on: April 14, 2018, 04:53:43 PM »
I thought we could use a thread to discuss unit and faction balance in 2.2. Pardon me if there's already a thread for this somewhere.

Some of the things I've noticed:
1.) ISDs feel kinda weak now, especially against Mon Calamari cruisers like the MC80b and MC90. I mean, that makes sense to a point because I imagine the New Republic designed their ships to counter ISDs, but still.
2.) I was expecting Procursators to be a bit tougher. I mean, maybe they are, this is a bit of a first impression of them and I could be wrong, but the one time I've used a couple of them in a large battle, they died quickly to hit-and-run attacks from a few Vindicators. Their shields went down really fast (like, within the first few volleys) but their hulls held out for longer. I wonder if they need a buff to their shields.
3.) Empress platforms are total bullshit; I've made a bug report on them.
4.) Golan Is, formerly of little effectiveness, are now snipers with a couple kilometers more range than ISDs. And to an unshielded ISD, their fire is actually dangerous. I'm not sure if that's because ISDs seem weak or because the Golans' firepower is stronger now, but what the hell?

Is there any chance of you guys adding more music to the mod in 2.2 or 2.3? There seems to be a very limited selection of pieces for the game to choose from to play in 2.15, so the music is very repetitive. I mean, I love Star Wars music, but even I get tired of hearing the same song played over and over again. I don't know how moddable the game's music is, but if you could expand upon it, John Williams and others have made so much amazing music for Star Wars, I'm sure there's plenty of pieces that would be good additions to the mod.

Welcome to the Boards / Yet another "hello, I'm new here" thread

Hi, everyone. I've had ICW installed for a few months now, and have been playing it on-and-off (as I do with everything, lol). I just finished my third GC, the Black Fleet Crisis one. I played a long GC as the Empire of the Hand, though, and so far they're definitely my favorite faction. I love how different they are compared to anything else in the game, both visually and gameplay-wise. I love how creative their designs are, like the Nuruodo with all its guns on one side and its hangars on the other; or the amazing Chaf with its low, sleek superstructure and distinctive fan tail; or the Au'riette with its long hangar, like an miniature Venator... Anyway, I'm definitely stoked for 2.2; I started lurking around here a week or two ago to find out more about the update, and I finally decided to create an account today.

PS: It's so cool to be on a forum that uses the Simple Machines Forum. I'm a long-time member of another forum that uses SMF, but I don't see many other places do that. A lot of forums seem to use this design instead, which I find a lot more irritating to use.
