Scale Question and the future of ground combat

Recommended Posts

I'm relatively new to Dystopian Wars, but I've been following the game for years.  Last year, I bought the "Hunt for the Prometheus" starter set and I've been steadily buying more fleets ever since.  I'm a huge fan of the game now and was hoping that they would eventually reintroduce the ground/air combat version of the game.  I had read that they might get to that eventually, but it would be a different scale.  I certainly hope that's not the case.

One of the biggest draws to the original game (at least for me) was seeing old pictures and battle reports of the combined arms (sea, air and land).  Adding the ground units in a different scale makes zero sense, because you can't combine squat at that point.  The benefits of making a compatible scale should be obvious -- especially with the fans of the original game.  They've played it and seen it work effectively.  If the developers at Warcradle do shift the scale, I think they're hurting themselves and the future of DW.

So, if anyone in charge of the game reads this, PLEASE consider making the ground combat compatible with the naval combat.  The two games should be in scale with each other (at least within reason).  I used to be an Epic 40K player back in the day and one of the best aspects of that game was the use of combined arms.  Infantry, ground vehicles, air support, artillery and the titans.  I'd love to see that idea carried forward with Dystopian Wars and I would be willing TO THROW MONEY AT YOU for doing this.  If the scale ends up being different, I'll probably just play the naval game and that'll be it.

I believe the scale change was between the old dystopian wars and the new version being released currently.  Nothing has really been officially released about Armoured Clash yet.

That's fine if that's the case.  I really want to buy into the whole combat system and have massive battles on sea, air and land.  I've seen so many cool pics from the original game and they look fantastic.
