IDK but i think the weak point of a base now - is artillery! Devs need nerf the range of artillery when player controll it. Because any base can be killed by 1 artillery turret with out any big res investments. TCH see it on GG. Red kill 10 towers by base with the core on the ground and one artillery. I want have BA on PVP but i know it game as well so i floating in the deep space. Because for now i dont see any point to build base. This game need deep rebalance. But we see only new textures.
Just ask youself WHAT new we have in 7.0!? Beatufull textures (yeah i liked it) more realictic mountains. SV warp and realy CRAZY new craft system. Barred magnesium (WTF! i have 1,5kk of it in the OCD lol). Make ships cheaper in half! (in iron) with little cost buff in sat. No weapon balance changes no bug fixes (reloading - they broke it in 6.5).
But answer is close - devs hit a deadlock in programming. ANd only they can do it make new textures. Now i burred my LAST hope in this game. It never not become what it promised to do. And it is sad. 3000 hours only on main account. And over 2000 hours on my creative “brother”. Maybe some PVEper flying on my “flowers ship”.
P.S. SwissSteel nice to meet you to! And i do have time to say you thankyou for you tank shape.
