Hi Stardock/ everyone,
I'm a long time fan of Galactic Civilizations. Ever since the original came out in 2003, I've been conquering the galaxy.
I am so excited to see that there will be a Galactic Civilizations IV and that you are looking to add new features to the game to make it better.
I have a suggestion in one word: Battles.
Battles in all the Gal Civ games are a straight numbers party where the highest scores in the categories win. There is no luck and no skill involved. So there is no excitement.
Please, please, please introduce some luck and skill in battles. So that smaller ships can defeat larger ones and strategy and positioning matters alongside what weaponry, defenses and speed the ships travel at.
Make a game where we can play battles.
