    A very accurate review.

    It's a shame really, maybe if they add mod support or balance the game and add more content this could become a decent game. As it is right now, playing it is an exercise in futility and with many frustrations along the way.

    And thanks god for pirate-demo-bay.

    It's pretty much all there in the BB thread. Perhaps some of it will show if there are ever any meaningful dlc/expansions. Mind you, that are a lot of ifs.

    Procedurally generated game is repetitive? Who'd have thought.

    About lack of legs, they have also a big head, so I guess it is intended rather than rushed. They are like chess pawn.

    Did they remove that? I remember "failing" an ambition because I took too long / ignored it.

    Altough I agree with the maps beign very repetetive. I can't agree with the point about BB content.

    It is to be just the combat. The devs have been saying that since the begining. If you can't get past that, then obiously the game will get boring rather fast and this type of game isn't for you, so don't bother.

    And for such a small team with very limited resources they have made a combat system that IMHO is better than any Jagged Alliance or XCOM. And they will be and are adding new shit with each update.

    But then again I sometimes do forget that most people on the Codex prefer C&C, story faggotary and a chose your own adventure type of game over good fun gameplay. That why The Witcher 3 was last year's GOTY and Planescape Torment is the 'Dex all time favourite """""RPG""""".

    Seeing all this infighting in this thread, I'm starting to wonder if the game's name carries an imperative subliminal message...

    A few does , but most of the users are more into political wankfest and white supremacy. Many just joined for the freedom they have in general and political forum oh and the gamergate and women are evil threads.

    it's definitely a bad game if you have to focus on the mechanics instead of waifus

    Oh i am sorry if i triggered you guys, its true i was inaccurate. They are here to discuss Bethesda and bioware games too. Sadly that will be incredibly difficult to discuss anything bioware related in the next future , as i am pretty sure after mass effect andromeda they wont produce anything anymore.

    "Muh, cult!!!"
    "Nah, YOU'RE butthurt!" - Your arguments in a nutshell.

    Your argument is a non argument. First you tried to "prove" that the game is poorly designed and perks don't change much (aka the "perks don't matter" argument that applies to a lot of games, but no BB). When cornered by myself and others you changed to "but but, it only adds numbers!". Yeah, no shit Sherlock. And those numbers are the difference between actually winning and giving the game a fair review and getting your ass handed to you and then writing a butthurt piece in order to exact revenge on those evil indie devs that had the audacity to release and actually challenging game that actually DEMANDS that you fucking L2P. It's quite telling that the people cheering you up in this thread are ALL just fangirls with pompons and around ZERO hours clocked in Battle Brothers. They are here to ride your dick, not discuss the game. And that is the very essence of Decline.

    The funny thing is that you could've easily avoided all that HAD you sticked to your VALID points against the game. Such as this one:

    True. I recommend saving before hiring someone. Also this:

    More or less true. The "not being able to see stats before paying" is a huge flaw and hiring a Hedge Knight with mediocre stats is a huge "fuck you!" on the player's face. The "high mortality" factor, however is very mitigated once heavier armor start rolling in. And you're not a retard and take Battle Forged*. :roll:

    Yes. The crisis lack some sort of closure. "War" is the biggest offender since there is absolutely NO progress indicator. And the war itself seems very dissociated from your efforts.




    But NO. Instead of sticking to valid points you just HAD to make up bullshit about the core gameplay mechanics you don't understand because...butthurt? E-creds? Being a cunt for the sake of being a cunt? Whatever, I guess. You deserve another NuXcom/Civilization 5/Tiberium Twilight etc.

    *: Just to further prove how incredibly stupid Roxor's et al arguments against the perks is: if you have 600 combined armor (Coat of Scales + Full Helm) that adds up to a 30 damage reduction per attack, before anything else is calculated. That essentially translates into immunity (or quasi-immunity) against goblin arrows (25-40 damage). GEE, I WONDER IF THAT SOMEHOW IMPACTS YOUR ENCOUNTERS AGAINST GOBLINS IN ANY WAY. :lol:
