Do you want fleets in this game?

@patsplats:

I read everything ... and yeas, i have read the hole 'only attack after being attacked' thing... witch i personally think sucks, and THAT is an perfect example of an protective rule that damages and limits the game play.




Wait, whats the "attack only after being attacked" thing? Can our ship ONLY attack people  that shoot at us first?

no the game is made with a AI so no unfair advantage against you will happen so if they get mad they will attack but this won't ruin any other guy's experience because the game is massively singleplayer and they won't have to deal with this when they play but they will be gone from your PCs game

You should be able to hit multiple places at once, therefore, I think armadas are more effective and I would like them to be in this game.

bahh... funny how you put it "game is made with a AI so no unfair advantage against you will happen".
it feels more like that rule goes against everything an AI stands for.

The limitation of other races not attacking you first, is just stupid... and sure, it is done to securing an balanced gameplay, but i still think thy could have solved it differently. the fact that you can live on your own secure little corner in your galaxy and no one will ever bother you unless you pick a fight with some one else first, is just absurd.

If alien AI's instead could attack you IF thy found your race to be a threat with their current level of technology, then things who'd be completely different, and this makes allot more sense if we try to make the AI do logical and strategical moves.
yeas, we could have a problem, where the aliens starts attacking you over time you do some progress, but that is more an issue of balance.

the hole "don't attack unless we attack first" seems more like a simple solution to a complex problem, seems to me... thy didn't put much thought in it, but that is just my humble opinion.

anyway... back to the topic, lets just hope the dev people add armada suport to the game, it is simply to important not to :)

In my not so proffesional opinion... Armadas are key. Imagine if you will massive space battles spanning across an entire galaxy... thousands of ships engaging eachother at all times and planets exploding left and right. Now... this may be a gross exageration of anything that is possible but something along this line would add far more depth to the endgame experience

mmm a fleet of pink Star Destroyers...if only..

Going on the poll I think quite a few people want armada's, they could put an option (like others ahve said) that allows you to turn them on/off

those that only want a single UFO, I pose you this question:  in last years GDC vid, why did will run away from a civ that didn't even have space travel yet?  Possibly it was because he wanted to show us the blow-up-a-planet-gun but more possibly it's because they would have killed him.

The UFO is a swiss-army-knife of the interstellar age.  I love the comparison.

And would you fight a tribe of spearmen with a single swiss army knife?  How about a single jaguar?

Will Wirght calls the UFO a swiss-armyknife in the GDC 2005 talk.  Its basically a vital tool for completing the later stages (that's if you can complete them)

a swiss army knife (which is kind of silly cuz switzerland is always neutral) is a small pocket knife that has loads (LOADS) of little features.  knife, scissors, nail clippers, magnifying glass, file, wrench, screwdrivers, rifle scope, you name it, it's there.

So the UFO is like a super-multi-tool vehicle, therefore the 'swiss army knife' of intergalactic travel.  But as per my comment, a swiss army knife is a 'jack of all trades, master of none' tool.
