    This game is not hard! But it lacks tips!

    Post  Nosuke on Tue Dec 14, 2010 4:53 am

    I have played this game over 50 times since its launch, and really love it.

    But it took me 20-30 defeat try to get the right strategy out and start winning the game, even by myself in 4 player game.

    I just feel that the learning curve in this game is extremely steep.

    Helpful messages should appears more as the player progress through the game. Helpful messages like.

    - Find supply that scatter outside the map to start build turrets.
    - You have found a supply, you can now build turrets.
    - You have found gas, you can build scanner and restoration.
    - Scanner has a scanning ability that allows you to reveal the map!
    - Restore can be useful for healing health and mana!
    - Build mule from factory to mine faster! (1 min after getting factory)
    - Dogs from science facility have an aoe splash attack, they are good against many units. (1 min after getting science facility)
    - Probe mine twice faster than mule, build pylons next to mineral and start mining! (after getting obelisk)
    - Probe can reach high ground by using blinking skill (1 min after getting probe)


    I believe this will lessen the learning curve for newbies, as for now, most of them are really clueless what to do =P

    I added objectives in the last patch hoping they'd help with that - I may go back and add tips as well, but I'm pretty sure nobody would read them.

    I believe if it appear on the area where chat message usually appear they should see it.

    I dont really know most of the things until i learn from others or they teach me. Like the probe ability to blink, if it could pop out and let me know earlier, I think it would help me a lot.
