Given the upcoming multiplayer info at PCG Weekender, I wanted to send a message to Relic.
Please avoid the following:
- Creating an unfair situation where, in a mirror match, one player has access to a wider variety of units/elites than the other, or...
- Creating a situation where, due to the current meta, you must purchase a certain DLC unit to be competitive, or...
- Splitting the player base up between expansion packs because new units have been added to old races.
All of these are bad outcomes. They will make players angry, and stifle any sort of competitive scene by raising the bar to entry.
To avoid this, please don't sell new units or elites in DLC/expacs. And if you must, please make them also obtainable by grinding in-game currency.
Of course, we all want to see more races added to the game, and we understand that costs money. Expacs/DLC containing new full races and campaigns is fine.
Lastly, cosmetic DLC is also fine.
