And I did the due diligence of already owning and having played Wargame: Red Dragon before news of Eugen’s unsuitable labor practices, and whatever happened in that private chat channel, came to light.
Meh. It still interests me and I wish it had clicked with me. There are great ideas in it like it being highly highly logistics driven with your resources being actual military divisions and brigades and whatnot that you move around the world map overworld before they’re what you use in the very World in Conflict style RTS, where the weapons are late Cold-War and everything feels a bit flimsy and you actually have to think about cover and concealment even for just moving units. “Is there some way we can take these tanks around behind a treeline or are they going straight through that empty space, hoping no one’s setup to spot them. How do you hide a moving helicopter?” Then attrition plays into every part of that as, through skirmish after skirmish, you need to worry about those combat groups depleting into nothing (and it costs so much to resupply concrete unit losses) and then in the RTS part, you have to worry about fuel for the vehicles and more vague supplies for the infantry, hoping you there isn’t a sneak attack on your supply FOB. All that, and you have to try and keep the air corridor open for the jets.
You can either be aware of everything or “Oh, I misjudged the attack plans of the KPA and now there are tanks running through the gap in my precisely meticulously thought out killzones and getting right up on my staging area. Well, guess that’s a straight corridor to Seoul now.”
I imagine though, there are people who read that and think the game sounds dope, and I won’t disagree with you. I’ll just remind you of the post above mine and let you weigh things out per your morals.
Edit: Oh hey, the next free epic game is Surviving Mars. I never got around to playing that the last time it was the free Epic game but owning it gives you 10% off the spin-off game, Surviving the Aftermath that they have in early access and, combine that with the seasonal $10 coupons and I paid $5 for that… I also haven’t played that game.
