    The problem with a "D-day" style map, is that once you get past the "Normandy beach" of the map, you get to a network of bunkers and trenches that are going to force everything into ultra-tight quarters of fighting.. and since EC is a third-person-over-the-right-shoulder-shooter, that limits how tight quarters can be even.. which ALSO leads to the case of where there can be cover in the trenches when defenders are also in those trenches. Bunkers however are easy to make (but would only have a purpose up to getting past the initial push, and the rest would be just clearing trenches).

    D-day is a notoriously bad example for anything past that one initial push.. as the whole notion of the battle at normandy was essentially "once they get past, it's lost".. which would be rather boring to play and just a kill-farm for defenders and instantly a loss after someone got past.

    A battle like it isn't even representative of how Marines or Eldar fight, almost not even Ork grade. Iwo Jima style would be more applicable, but would require a massively big map to function properly (or if somehow multi-map battles for a campaign or something, where you had to beat a battle to go on to the next stage of the battle on the next map tied directly to it, where there was almost a "campaign day 1&2: map 1, day 3&4: map 2, day 5-7: final map" etc)

    You can't really compare many modern day battles to 40k sadly, even if those battles were historically groundbreaking for warfare

    Really. It's already 2019, and the game is still beta.

    They've really done it by seperating themselves from us completly(nothing on the support site, no Twitch no nothing).
    Even if they still so their best, it feels like they have forsaken us.

    ps: This doesn't need a "because they have" reply.

    To be honest, I'd gladly take weekly streams where we watched @jbregg & @Pierrick making new maps, working on the game etc.. sure beats having nothing
  8. I'd actually enjoy that...

    But I'd at least like a monthly stream where they show us anything they've been working on, maybe ask for our input, and keep us informed on anything else that is happening.
    They wouldn't have to be long or anything, half an hour to an hour would do.

    Jbregg plays sudoku on stream =P I too miss the streams. When they stopped it felt like things had gound to a halt even if that wasn't the reality. Didn't care if they had anything new to show, just knew that streams meant I could see the team talk about a topic I cared about, that being EC.

    It seems that the next patch we will wait until the summer.
