Here's my take on the whole thing so far:
The game was supposed to release in 2018, and was postponed, ''To make it better'' <-- Your words. At that time, we had close to no information whatsoever about the game, all we had were a few wallpapers and background images.
Fast forward to Winter 2018, we find out the game will be published in 2019 THE DAY BEFORE the initial release date (so much for those who had pre-purchased at that time).
Fast forward again to 2019, we finally get more information about the game, mainly from the Open Betas, and what do we find out? That everything you promised was a lie.
Big Battles on a much larger scale than the previous installment of the serie
Where? If anything, the battles are much smaller than the original game. Oh yeah, we can have 1-2 more ships on the map... if we go full escort, forget the big ships, you'll get 1 of those per map and you'll half filled 90% of your fleet cap.
Again, where? So far there are 2 types of maps,
1: Open warfare with 4 ships (WOOOO Big battle)
2: Capture the point....... REALLY? Of all the things you could've done, you choose ''Capture the point'' as your MAIN type of map? Which is literally 98% of your maps?
We haven't seen much, ok yeah, there are 3 factions to play, which is great. However from what I can see on the Beta, those are a literaly copy paste with different dialogues and ships, however, you're still stuck playing ''Capture the Point'' on every SINGLE map. Thanks god for the damn Auto-Battle option.
Capture the Point mode
The idea was fine, if it hadn't been implemented on such a huge scale. A game that is supposed to be about gigantic space battles between factions, is now a ''Who has the fastest ship'', if I wanted to play a racing game, I wouldn't be here. You advertised your game, saying it would be an open warfare type of game, instead we're stuck playing cat and mouse while ignoring the big bulky ships sitting in our hangar because they have no way in hell to either reach an objectif fast enough to be relevant, or to catch a smaller ship.
You messed up big time Focus-Home & Tindalos. Big time. I think this goes without saying, like many other people, I have refunded my pre-purchase and will be waiting to see if you deliver the game THAT YOU promised, and not this garbage.
