And some of us beta testers have it worse as we are unlearning and then learning again. For example, in Beta, you could build a farm from the city menu. Now we do it by clicking on the fertile land tile. This actually took me some time, and a post, to figure out and I was not alone.
There are a few posts on here about how bad things are and how could Stardock have blown this…That’s all BS. I think everyone is frustrated because everything has to be figured out instead of second nature. Sure I can’t name the techs required to field squads of 6 arches, yet, and it’s frustrating when I research a number of technologies and can’t get it right, but that’s because the game is new and I have no tech tree. I also don’t manage my main resources well (mats, gold, food) and my economy stalls, not allowing me to build facilities which produce the resources I need. This is all because it was my second game. Same thing happened during GalCiv2, WOW, even starcraft2 (Why don’t the terrans have medics in multiplayer, why can’t my terran tanks transform right out of the engineering bay).
I see incredible potential for this game. There are a few things that need to be fixed or polished, but I freakin’ love the game. And I can’t wait for the monstrous amount of depth and creativity that comes from all the fan created mods.
Be patient, everyone is just learning a new system. In a few weeks, it’s memorized and people will rave how good it is. And for the love of god show some appreciation.
