Re: "Essential" features

UI rework and general speed up and optimisation of game switching & loading.

Seriously the only reason I don't scream at the UI is the fact I know it's beta

Re: Proposed changes to the sniper class

The deployed is a BRILLIANT idea. Will you have a graphic cue to go with that mechanic?

The rest I suppose is just down to playing and see how balance plays out

Re: Blog post that may be of interest - symetrical levels

Out of curiosity do you think you could make a level of the day or week. Just wondering if you could collect enough duplicate data on maps to find maps with near 50% balance. That might provide a more interesting alternative to symmetrical levels. Still awesome feature to have there for Tourneys and...

Re: Reseting Global Stats

We had this problem with Match-Making score before. The solution for "Skill Rating" we used was to degrade the influence of points over time. The problem with this was smurfing (people gaming the rating down so they could get a long winning streak) Some systems use seasonal placement. So once every ...

Re: Ideas Management

I strongly believe that using bug reporting style software is too involved an means your feedback will be from less than 2%of your user base (taking into account the more engaged nature of indie game & beta community) You want it simple and low investment for general feedback, preferably with a link...

Re: Ideas Management

As has already been pointed out Mantis or Bugzilla require a big investment from users and isn't really public friendly. Moderator is simple fast, low entry. Also if you want to include more details you could just link to a forum post in the quick description. The key value of moderator is the abili...

Ideas Management

Hi Guys, As you know things are a bit chaotic and sometimes ideas can get buried. I strongly suggest you look at setting up a Google Moderator page. http://www.google.com/moderator/ Ideas can be submitted voted up / down. The admins of the series can also respond to an idea. It would be a MUCH clean...

Re: [BUG] Asked for dark game, get light one

This has happened to me several times.
Only when I select the generic dark option.
Not happened recently, but defiantly had this occur to me.

UI: Unplayable at 640x480

I often like playing games in the corner of my screen and while doing other things. The UI elements are just not usable at a small resolution. The Menu UI has too many issues to list, a short term solution possibly would be to scale down the UI. Maybe in the options introduce a UI Scaling slider. Th...

Background Loading & Caching

Hi Guys, Its really hard to make this sort of commentary without knowing the code-base, but a question / idea. When a new turn is ready or game started could the download of the base file / turn file be done in the background and cached. It also might be an idea to cache all recent games up to say X...
