As we all know this month relic is going to release a big new patch where we could see new elites and new maps and I think is awesome, but there are some add-ons that I also waiting since the game came out, So I want to discuss with you some of them and maybe inform relic to integrate with the game:
Currently there is no such thing as a spectator mode, and I think this is one of the most important changes that game need, as in DOW II be a new player could be really frustrating for the actual skill gap between new and old players. A nice way to counter that was getting into custom matches and be a spectator and learn how to play the game. Also, to create community tournaments and help the casters. But we need a new HUD where we can know the resources and elite status with out having changed player of view.
There are some players who likes to play the game against the computer but this is to limit when from all the possibilities the game offer you can only choose between defensive or aggressive in early, midd and late game, so allow player to change the elites and doctrines of enemy AI will help a lot, also because currently is almost no player base in the game.
Eldar Base color
I didn’t want to get in too much in gameplay but I think the eldar needs to change the base color of their soldier unit such as dire avengers, Banshees, dark reapers and shadow specters, this is because in team games is really hard to know from spectator view which ones are from each player also is kind uncomfortable see you army paint in golden, red and you see your army blue, black, white and go on.
The army doctrines probably the worst enemy to have a good balance game, This act exactly as Injustice 2, some gear gives nice abilities and new functions but is impossible to balance, so I propose only use army doctrines in custom matches and delete it from ranked games.
