Starpoint Gemini is a surprisingly fun game, especially a pirate campaign where you can't buy most of your ships so you have to plan out which ships to hijack so you can get bigger ships with more marines to capture increasingly large ships.

How come Disney or EA can't make a decent plot for any movie or game? It's always that same fucking plot, as if Lucas never released the first two trilogies. It'd be cool to see some pirates once in a while, or some infiltration on Coruscant of all places. Some fucked up shit happened there that the Empire and the ancient Sith kept hidden away that was pretty fuckin' important.

Rouge one was a pretty big leap from the usual formula and I'm hoping, seeing that success they'll do some different things for 8

EA admitted that Battlefront 2 was rushed to get some of that Star Wars hype for episode 8. The last half of the single player isn't in even in the game yet. I've seen some argument that with all these movies there is no room for a Star Wars game plot that could do anything interesting without making their own characters and then instantly killing them off like Rouge One cause it would have to be part of the universe now Star Wars is a cinematic universe. My guess is the whole plot was a rushed mess and they did not spend the time to talk to any of the official writers and work something interesting out.

The interesting stuff Rogue One did wasn't just killing its entire cast, but setting a movie in the star wars universe that wasn't all about space wizards and their high tech butter knives.

Its likely the closest we'll ever get to a movie version of Republic Commando or a movie about a group of stormtroopers hunting down a cell of terrorists or a movie about Bobba Fett hunting down bounties.

It gave us a side of star wars that was completely different from the usual formula. So what if CGI Tarkin and Leah looked like shit? Personally I'd much rather have more of Rogue One if thats what it takes to not have to sit through more movies about some douchey teenager with daddy issues acting out.

My point wasn't about comparing the movie to a specific game so much as to point out that the Star Wars universe can be used for more than just stories about Jedi's, and that I would nice to get more movies focused on those other parts of the universe, rather than more jedidoggerel.

And that would be an insult to the Empire because the rebels in cannon and in EU start off so corrupted that they collapse in less time due to their own machinations than the time it took for the Empire to fall to the rebels and then rise again, not counting all of the worlds that liked the Empire for bringing law and order.

You sort of do for a while after Battle of Endor. But that's where the plot starts to unravel. Apparently the emperor was a selfish autist and had a secret contingency plan called "Operation Cinder" which was essentially a scorched earth policy based on his belief that if the empire isn't strong enough to defend its emperor, then it wasn't strong enough to exist period, nevermind the fact in an autocracy the state is only as strong as its leader is capable. The protag is a drooling retard who spends 3 missions retrieving doomsday weapon parts only to realize it's going to be used on her homeworld. She has the sudden epiphany that the empire can and will do bad shit arbitrarily to anyone at any place while her homeworld burns down around her and that the rebellion was right all along. And then she joins the rebellion and runs a bunch of missions that don't really matter. Oh ya, her hook nose jew husband gets shot in the end. There's also some speculation that the daughter she has with her jew husband is mary sue Rey from ep 7.

Chuck Wendig, "The Tie fighter wibble wobbles herkily and Jerkily careening through the air" the rebels also captured 3 SSDs and destroyed 6 in 6 months after the battle of Endor and then the battle of Jakku happened if I remember correctly. The best thing so far to come from new cannon is the Tarkin origin story book that gave him a great reason for his actions and outlook on life and even then I heard that book was originally a legends book that was forced to become a new cannon one.

They were giant factory ships that ripped planets to shreds with tractor beams in order to turn them into things like >>13882593 said, and there were tons of them. So all the TIE Droids you fight in the Rogue Squadron mission are pretty much made out of the planet you are trying to protect.

Also, Battle of Jakku (second to last mission) was suppose to be the Empire's "last stand" where they tested their mettle against the rebel alliance. They did such a piss poor job of depicting the battle that it calls into question the actual size of the galactic empire.

The original origin of the Rebellion was that it was meant to be Imperial Officers, a lot with Old Republic Military backgrounds being disgusted with what the Empire has turned into, i.e. a Moff circlejerk rather than a force for stability and order. They brought experience, weapons and even warships to the Rebellion. Hell a good chunk of the Rebellion's initial pilots were former TIE Fighter pilots. How the Rebels supposedly got ahold of the original Death Star plans. A lot of them gave their lives so that the Rebellion could have a fighting chance.

Now how it is written is that the Rebellion was formed by a bunch of spoiled brats angsty that their daddy never got them that space pony they wanted and upset cause the Empire gave them a spanking and told them to stop being childish brats.

If I recall correctly in Empire at War you can use the Death Star to reduce a planet to an asteroid field. Same in Galactic Civilizations 2, though you do need a lot of tech.

Speaking of which, I wish Stellaris had some way of destroying planets. As far as I know some of the late game events can reduce planets to barren (but terraformable) wastes and there's only a couple of ways to permascrew a world, none of which are really accessible to the player.

Prepare yourself for:

ONE Propulsion type: Hyper-lanes!

Did you like wormhole generation? Did you like the freedom of moving your ship from any star to any other relatively nearby star? Did you like not getting blocked by nigger ancient aliens and other faggots? TOO BAD, SUCK A COCK! and if you think that's bad, wait till you see what they've got in store for fleets!

HARD FLEET CAPS! Did you like having one or two fleets which were large enough not to get entirely decimated by enemies? Suck another cock you fucking retard! Now you can't have fleets above X size (to be announced). So that means you'll probably end up with TEN or TWENTY shitty fleets, instead of one or two good ones! This will totally solve the non-problem of "doom stacks" and not at all be a whole lot of micromanagement and in-the-end-it-doesn't-even-matter because you can just tell fleets to follow each other!

Speaking of fleets, were you annoyed that Stellaris isn't CK2 and that ships always stay the entire fight or until you tell them to retreat? Well then this is the update for you! Because now, unless you specifically change a policy (which can only be done if you're in the "bad guys" section of ethics) your ships will all run the fuck away if they think they might die! Because a broken fleet is more useful repairing at your space port instead of preventing the enemy fleet from crippling and killing you!

Now let's talk missiles, do you like them? Well, now all missiles use the torpedo slot. Also all missiles act like torpedoes. Hope you like lasers or guns you piece of shit - you'll be using them even if you don't!

I'm omitting a lot of things, there were a few big posts regarding these updates. I just felt the need to make this post because of the some good ideas comment. I just can't fathom how you think of it this way. I'm still going to play, mind you, but I'm sure I won't like what happens.

TL;DR: This update is going to be horrific.

Except they ARE going to tip the balance between larger stacks being hardly dented after decimating your slightly smaller stack, there will be measures so that you will at least slow down or cripple them enough so long as you're not tossing your ships against someone with over double your fleet power. They are also indirectly adding formations by enabling you to choose which kind of behavior your ship will have based on their battle computers, although I don't think this will change much in the game, honestly.

>>13896396

>Did you like wormhole generation? Did you like the freedom of moving your ship from any star to any other relatively nearby star?

Warp has always been shit. At least wormhole took some thought and was actually fun to use, so it sucks having to say farewell to it. I hope there will be mods that re-enables the old FTL system, I quite liked it, but you should suck a cock anyway. Stellaris has fuck-all options for strategy when it comes to war BECAUSE of other FTL types, having it Hyper-lane only is actually fun and encourages smart decisions when it comes to choke points and colonization choices.

>HARD FLEET CAPS!

Except this is (sort of) good, you disgusting piece of shit.

This really isn't the ideal solution for how mind-numblingly BORING war is in Stellaris, but it sure as fuck helps. Even if you still try the good old Doomstack strategy, only a few of your fleets will have admirals because you only have so many leader slots, so your ships will be performing sub optimally.

>muh micro is bad

Boy, it sure is fun clicking once with my doomstack into my opponent's capital and not giving a shit for the rest of the war!

>ships always stay the entire fight or until you tell them to retreat?

Did you even read the entire post? There are SEVERAL of those policies, and the one your post illustrates gleams straight over the "Defense in Depth", that specifically SERVES the purpose of defending your shit with a low chance of retreat if you're a pacifist cuck or a passive piece of shit, like a last stand. Of course your people are going to be fucking PUSSIES if your empire is also a PUSSY, you can't expect them to fight like actual, fighting machines. There are even several other different doctrines that hopefully make a difference in the way you wage war. Sucks that they're empire wide and not fleet-specific, though. I'd love to specialize further from that.

>missiles

Yup, sucks. I liked missiles too, sort of a risk-reward situation that was easily punishable.

>I'm omitting a lot of things

Fuck yes, you are. There are going to be several changes to how borders are settled, the entire fucking WARSCORE system is getting revamped so it hopefully acts in a much better way, ships layouts are slightly redesigned now. Fuck, there's even free content that USED to be exclusively from Utopia that is going to go for free now, that being Ascension Perks.

>TL;DR: This update is going to be horrific.

No, that's not right.

>TL;DR: This update MIGHT be horrific

Hopefully it's not, war in Stellaris has always been fucking shit, I just wish they'd add other victory conditions than basically peace through force.


df44ff No.13896559

Doomstacks have been a part of every paradox game, in fact a part of every RTS ever made, and complaining about them is fucking retarded. They exist for the simple reason that the more firepower you bring to the table, the faster the enemy's firepower is depleted due to casualties, and accordingly, the less damage you'll take overall. Overwhelming numbers will always bet the optimal choice.

Look, I'm not saying overwhelming forces SHOULDN'T steamroll the other side, that's how 90% of conflicts in history were ever won, but you shouldn't be completely helpless against an enemy just SLIGHTLY stronger than you. There should be a space for responses that are actually helpful and can offer you an edge, otherwise you should just give up as soon as someone a little bit stronger than you attacks you, which is exactly how Stellaris has been for as long as it has existed.

> you shouldn't be completely helpless against an enemy just SLIGHTLY stronger than you

You aren't, micro will still help you - moving your units to evade projectiles, instructing them to target the enemies they hard counter first, that kind of thing. The enemy will have a leg up and if his micro's just as good he'll probably win, but if your micro is better chances are you'll still win despite slightly different odds.

Oh, what's that, Paradox isn't actually adding micro? Well then I guess you're still just as fucked against superior numbers as you were before, and the idiotic fleet cap won't help with that.

You faggots are forgetting the part where smaller fleets will have big bonus to evasion, firerate and greater chance to disengage with less/no damage.

IF they don't completely fuck it up, one of the hopes is to use smaller harasser fleets to wear down a large stack.

But this is Pardaox we're talking about so I'm not optimistic.

You aren't. The AI is very exploitable. If the enemy is in your system and you bring in your own doomstack they will move to fight it. So, divide your doomstack and use one half to bait the enemy fleet while you use the other to bomb and conquer the enemy worlds.

It's still retarded, but it's sort of like using tactics against a somewhat superior force. Also, if you can catch the enemy ground troops when they're separated from their main fleet the enemy can't do anything to you.

Where vietnam went fubar wasn't in the american politics, it was in the politics in South Vietnam.

All Guerilla wars are primarily convincing the locals to support your and fight the enemy, regardless of whether you are superior force or not.

Without the support of the locals, no resistance movement can succeed. They have a hard time trying to recruit, few places to hide and will lack local knowledge of the terrain and locals, if few or none of the locals will support them. If the supperior force cannot convince the locals to support them against the guerrillas in turn, the enemy will have all these things, and the harder you fight the enemy, the more locals get killed, either fighting for the enemy or caught in the crossfire and you will be blamed for all of it by the locals, sending them further into the guerilla's camp.

Its largely the same reason the Taliban have been winning in Afghanistan. They have far better PR with the locals than the corrupt politicians being kept in power by invading foreigners.

The only way to "win" a war like that with militarily is to commit a major genocide against the locals, which will just raise more trouble than its worth. The more people you kill until then, the more their relatives will want to fight back.

This is another reason why I hate auto-updates. Endless Legend has massive changes each expansion, but even if you turn off the dlc the underlying game has been rebalanced to work with it. You thought you could get resource screwed as the cult before? Wait until there's even less resources on land and there's fuck all cash from goody huts so you can't even explore without going bankrupt.

If you mean more arcadey "sims" similar to TIE Fighter, look at X Rebirth or Strike Suit Zero, although I haven't personally played either so I can't really vouch for them.

The story revolve around a girl who firnds out she's a perfect genetic match for a long dead interstellar aristocrat apparently randomly reborn due to a limited number of possible genetic differences in people, or some such, no the movie doesn't really explain it being run through the intergalactic bureaucracy while the kids from her past life try to steal her inheritance the one her past self left herself, bee's instinctively recognise intersttellar aristocrats for no explained reason, they just do and the earth is being used by interstellar aristocrats as a breeding farm and when the population reaches a critical limit they will dissolve ever human on it to make some kind of eternal youth elixir.

Yes I played Home world 1, Emergence , and 2 I even talked about my first experience in the thread. Though to be fair I never finished any of them because some reason or another. 1 had a glitch that prevented me from moving past the second mission, Emergence had that bs stealth escort mission with the never ending fighters and I know for a fact because I saw it with my own two eyes it had friendly fire and collision because I witnessed fighters killing themselves whenever they tried to launch missiles and formations never worked right because they kept bumping into each other like bumper cars and then the game refused to even launch for me again. And with 2 I stopped playing after I couldn't take ove more ships when you reached the limit cap.

>did you even fucking watched the LoGH cartoon?

Yes I did, its a really good show in spite of Yang and his team's plot armor and Ishelhorn fortress was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Legend of the Galactic Heroes My Conquest is the Sea of Stars movie was really painful to watch with all that Yang wank

Remaking Homeworld 1 in the Homeworld 2 engine was the most retarded thing they could have ever done considering Homeworld 1 actually relies on proper movement and projectile physics while Homeworld 2 runs on RNG mechanics.

Cataclysm was not remastered; the source code has been lost. It has been rebranded as "Emergence" due to Blizzard's trademark on the name "Cataclysm". As far as I am aware, the version on GOG is the original release.

Pirate the originals and try it again. I'm also fairly certain there's at least one mod that raises the unit limit or removes it for HW2.

It was the knee-jerk response to HW1 being easy to cheese by stealing everything that wasn't nailed down (and some things that were).

Unfortunately this means that HW2 is equally easy to cheese by retiring your fleet at the end of each mission and rebuilding it at the start of the next one.

Also let's not beat around the bush, HW1>HWC>HW2>>>>>>>>>>Remastered.

its not THAT bad if you know what you are doing, it mostly goes down to engaging the enemy fleet slowly, and the only mission that really got "Difficult" was the one were you needed to kill a bunch of battlecruisers, but the hw community was bitching about the difficulty so they tone it down bunch of pussies

The strange part about Homeworld was it seemed like the AI learned from what I was doing. I think it was on mission 4 when you encounter the Taiidan carrier. The first time I played it I stole it with the salvage corvettes without any issues. On a subsequent play through the carrier started attacking my salvage corvettes as soon as he saw them approach. Did you experience anything like that?

They're trying to 'fix' doomstacks.

And the way they're doing it is terrible.

>Smaller fleets will get a buff to balance out disproportionate casualties caused by having a smaller fleet

>Ships will try to auto-flee when hurt

>Arbitrary hard cap on fleet size

>Every ship now has a single reactor that just dumps a lump of energy based off ship size + tech, but you can get boosters that give you more power

>Armour is now a second health bar that must be repaired if damaged

>Missiles now bypass shields entirely and always go in the torpedo slot because…

>Ships now are weaker when they take more damage

>You can pick one of 4 tactics per ship design (hit and run, engage close, engage medium, engage far) and a combat doctrine which basically just chooses how fast you can run from fights

They have barely changed the level of tactics involved. It's still going to be doomstacks, just now you're going to have to segment them and click slightly different tactics on ships, assuming it doesn't boil down to 'Always run near/far, one ship size' like it has the last few times. Expect mandatory missiles on pretty much every ship since now you get a free slot for them and enemies do less damage when damaged, and forcing your opponent to build PD's to counter missiles means they aren't using moredakka.

This is good

>>13940033

This is bad. Really bad. It's only going to make fleet management and ship design tedious. I don't understand why they think "doomstacking" is a problem, it's just a natural way to engage an enemy. And it's not like you can't deal with it at all now unless you're badly outmatched. If anything they should make tech more important, as it is a force with better equipment gets BTFO by a larger force with worse equipment. But really they've sort of designed themselves into a corner, every choice they make is going to be shit unless they redesign the military side of the game from the ground up.


446f16 No.13940596

>>13940033

I understand your concerns about the changes they're making but frankly I'd rather they do this than leave the game the way it is. At the moment just pushing singular doomstacks around the map gets tiresome, and in the late game when your empire is huge it makes securing all your borders annoying as fuck.

I think these new systems will allow for a wider range of playstyles. Depending on the size of the bonus they decide to give to the underdog fleet, I could see people using a shitton of smaller, fast fleets to constantly harass larger fleets. Economically speaking it will become more effective to send in multiple third- or half-strength fleets to take advantage of the fire rate buff.

I also don't mind the changes they're making to some of the ship subsystems. Having to click over and over again to place just the right number of reactors was tiresome. Armor was this weird odd-man-out system that only worked well on certain ship classes. This dev diary also didn't mention the different types of planetary systems now - some of them have negative modifiers, e.g. making shields completely ineffective while ships are in the system.

>>13940378

This is going to make ship design less tedious. They're reducing the number of times you have to click to design your ship, and reintroducing different types of combat computers for different behaviors. Now you can adopt a particular strategy and design your ships accordingly,

>If anything they should make tech more important

They are: https://archive.is/WoFgk

>every choice they make is going to be shit unless they redesign the military side of the game from the ground up.

I sort-of agree with this but I'm not sure how they would even approach a redesign

>>13940596

Civ's 4 taught me that a doomstack is not inherently bad so long as there is a well planned balance of counterplay between units, depth created through variety. Additionally in Civ's 4, because of the collateral damage effect of artillery units, attacker had preference, encouraging a game of positional combat, trying to get a good defensive point that the enemy wasn't bold enough to try and hit you while trying to edge in towards them to take their shit down. Running just a few of units away from your doomstack meant you could take a city, meaning they had to constantly be ready to defend.

No game has really captured doomstacks as well.


817b66 No.13941525

>>13940596

Just add logistics. There, problem solved.

Now a big doomfleet will have big issues if a smaller fleet cripples it's supply chain.

In addition, a small fleet of fast ship can disengage more easily and thus do quick hit-and-run attacks on the doomstack.

Because Stellaris has a stupidly simple combat model that allows no variety in tactics and barely any options strategically. Armies around the world have to worry about logistics and terrain and generally need to cover a much wider area. Not to mention you can properly flank the enemy if you divide your forces. In Stellaris there is no such thing as supply lines, terrain is non-existant (although they are using hyperlanes only in 2.0 so that's sort of like having terrain), you only need to defend the space above planets (and moving from one system to the next is very easy) and flanking has no practical purpose. You can't even attempt a proper flank because fleets get locked into combat as soon as they enter within weapons range of one another, so you either slug it out or hit the retreat button.

I always get hung up on games with sequels, because i can't tell if they're different enough from each other to be worth playing or if the sequel is simply "X but better." I am trying to download a copy of the GOG version now. I'll give it a shot first; my experience with 4X games is minimal but I'm in a strong sci-fi mood and only own a toaster, so older space games are my ticket.

Do it. GalCiv 3 is finally in a good place, at least sorta, with the recent expansions, but it's still in flux, with more expansions possibly releasing further down the road, and also it's a bit underoptimized, so it might be too much for a toaster. GalCiv 2, on the other hand, is cheap, complete, and is honestly one of the best 4X games ever released. Wait until GC 3 is "complete" as a game, it'll be cheaper then, anyway.
