Something that periodically gets around the office and forums is the problem where infantry get into each other’s spawns. It is one of those divisive issues where people have a full spectrum of distinct and often insular opinions. Some write it off under the “AFILAW” rule (All’s Fair in Love and War). Others see it as cheating and get quite agitated about it…
Some of you who read this and work on games yourself will probably find this a bit … eerie or weird or nerdy or something. But, I like to enjoy the game I work on. So yes, for my birthday, I stocked up on beers and chips and candy, and I sat myself infront of our game for most of the day – a good 16 hours played yesterday/this morning.
And it has really been quite phenomenal. Fundamentally, it’s still the same game it was before our last patch set of patches, but this differentiated brigades has definitely been a major milestone in the development track.
