yep defense turret buffs are broken... all these things they deny are already limited i dont see why a stance mechanic is even necessary... who care if you get carrier bombed there is are ways to counter it it should be a valid fleet not take a random one to use it for scouting.
no because from what i understand at least the take and hold style will be ingrained in the campaign random battles as well. also this version of scrim is a shadow of the old one which will always be a problem unless we are given a different mode to progress races that are currently irrelevant to SP progression i.e. any race that does not have a campaign. Its either we have everything and play the same limited scrim battles or we have nothing and still have the same limited scrim battles. All the magic the last one had is gone.
@jamodon while those were obstacles what really drove MP away was that theyre was not enough players in the first place... this isnt going to draw an esports crowd and it doesnt have moddablity that draws more casual players. Its only attractive to a smaller group in the first place. I wish you the best with getting the MP experience you want but i fear your going to be let down in the long run.
