As I first entered beta. I was thankful I was home and on wifi. I should have expected a massive download of new information. That’s on me.
Next came the tutorial. I believe it was overly wordy far to early in when explaining how most things worked. I don’t remember most of it honestly. I wish I could at least go back and look at the transcript. There was good information but it was condensed into a few texts boxes.
Ok so the game just taught me how to build troops alright cool. Wait you are telling me to speed them up? With whose speed ups? Did I just use my own timers? Normally games throw you some freebies to get you through the tutorial. So I got stingy and used 1 minute timers to get the build to under a minute thinking I could complete for free like most things in the game. Nope. The complete for free button appears after the build is finished.
Next was the enemy prime arch mission. This was the most confusing part. You can not attack this enemy with out zooming in. So for 3 or so minutes I was being told to follow the directions because I just started tapping on everything in hopes something would happen. Finally I zoomed in and could touch a tiny piece of the enemy to start the battle.
Attacks seem super laggy. So much slower than normal game play. I feel like a sitting duck. Maybe it’s a good thing. I am not sue how I feel about it. But it is noticeable.
Lastly now, I have no idea what to do. I mined some gold attacked some poachers. Can’t remember what it takes to level my primearch. Perhaps reminders popping up or missions would be a good addition. A sort of continuing education like thing.
All and all seems like it could be fun. I know it won’t be in Monday though
