Greetings Commanders!

I just wanted to take a moment to formally introduce myself to you as the new Design Lead on War Commander.

I’ve been with the War Commander team for almost 6 years.  Half of that time I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside WrongThinker to create fun content for all of you.  At the same time, I’ve also been an avid player of the game. It was great facing off against many of you in this most recent Warpath.  Originally starting out in QA, I’ve also been a champion of fixing bugs that hinder gameplay. Sometimes it can feel like there’s always a new fire to fight and a new storm to chase, but we’re constantly working towards improving the game.

It will be my goal to continue the positive direction WrongThinker has taken the game.  One step in that direction is that this next release we’ll be delivering on a long requested change in reducing the capacity of the PVP only Legendary Units by half.  I’m also going to be looking into options to rebalance some of our units which have not turned out to be as useful as we would have liked. Don’t worry, we are not going to change too much and I will definitely be getting your feedback on some proposed changes before we decide on them.

We have some exciting plans coming up in the future, including a new game mode and new types of content, which we’ll be providing more details about as they come together.  As before, please continue to leave your thoughts and feedback below.

See you on the battlefield!

    Welcome Storm Chaser (aka ichase) for this introduction. One of the biggest wishes I have for the future is more transparency in the future.

    Finally, out of curiosity, what was the main idea behind your original name ichase?

    300 space instead of 600 thats AWESOME!!!
    And if you rebalancing them even more make the legendary Hellfires missiles split like the elite version Unless you guys plan on releasing Elite Legendary Units :D :p :| :p :D and maybe have them fire two missiles instead of one instead for one its techs like the elite version did
    Also make the LMT have high priority targeting.


    OH AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WELCOME TO THE WC COMMUNITY.

    welcome. don't follow in wrongthinkers footsteps....too many broken promises and too long silences. If there is one thing i would ask for is that kix would look into alliances more.... alliance chat and diplomacy settings between alliances...it would go towards reviving pvp and the game.

    I'm glad that legendary units are getting their size reduced. Thank you!
    I don't know why it took you so long to make that decision, but the important thing is that you finally did! and I hope the new changes would encourage us to use them in attacks.
    Would you also consider changing their build requirements to Thorium only? so that if someone accidentally disband a damaged one from a PvP platoon, it would be easier to fix, instead of completely losing the unit and wait daaays for it to finish building.

    Congrats on the new position , it will be great to have a lead designer who plays the game and knows its history.  Really looking forward to the coming months and hopefully less grind :)
    That's exactly what we need! someone who plays the live game with real players. and that's why I have a good feeling about Storm Chaser. :)
    IIRC he used to participate in preview servers that was open to us players. one of the previews I remember was for testing the Enforcer tank back in 2013.

    It's still a little early to say for sure how the new game mode will turn out, but we're experimenting with different ways to use your units.

    Riveting read Storm Chaser. The new changes to Legendary Unit capacity will be well received, I think. Hoping to see some absolutely awesome things from you in the coming future! I'm certainly excited.

    I have one question. You said you plan to rebalance a number of units to make them more useful. Any hints as to which units will be potentially getting tweaked?

    I'd prefer a bug and crash-free game over new content that contains more bugs and more crashs.

    Anyways, welcome Storm Chaser in the evil forums.

    Feels like I've always been chasing something, but the stormy challenges of War Commander have had my focus for the base few years now.

    First of all welcome, glad you are such an avid player.   I'm not into PVP but playing with the devs is always a favourite game past time.   

    Anyways not to echo the above comments, but I also think WrongThinker was great in many respects.   However the games direction has been poor its faction balance has been wrong outright.  Just pointed out the health on the WarRig 6m vs 200m on the newer corpus and sentinel ones.

    AND if you haven't been working on Unit balance for the last year, than WELL what have you been doing, we've heard it for a year now, which would prob mean EVEN if you did that, it would be out of date.

    You've got a LONG hard road ahead, keep the good things, throw out the bad, and don't say can't do it cause WT would object.

    So cutting legacy units space in half.. good move

    1 question.

    Along with that , no changes in damage taken and damage dealt (ie. All kixeye invisible filters and resistances ) by these units to every single unit currently in the game correct??

    The game needs more balancing towards defense, that should be the focus right now. though balancing useless units to be useful is good also

    Welcome. Is there a reason that the open fields tacit for Phalanx went from 78k medals to 125k medals when the gear store update from January 10 of this year said the item cost had been permanently reduced to 39k?

    Now they have reduced space for legendary units by half does that mean that in due course that legendary tokens will be added to TEX

    Friendly Fixer stated it was oversight that they wasnt added when TEX came in but 6 months on still hasnt been rectified

    By saying that you are new design lead does that mean Wrongthinker has moved onto pastures new????
