First impressions and a few suggestions

S&S is a very fun and quite addictive game. I played a lot of RTS games and this one is original and refreshing. Also, the graphics are nicely detailed and I like the art direction (I'm a 2D lover ). The music is great too and the voices are pretty funny.

Now, here come the suggestions:

- Add a 2vs2 gamemode (every RTS should have one) ;
- Add the ability to choose the map before the match starts via a vote system ;
- Add a text chat ;
- Add more content (more maps, missions, gamemodes, etc).
- Add a "random faction" option.

Finally, I often have to spam the LMB to skip the dialogues in the campaign and that's rather annoying. Am I the only one with that problem?

Thanks for reading.

I agree with all what you said, but the thing that I really want is being to play random.

For me it works by double-clicking the LMB. I thought it was made not to skip the dialogue randomly.

Just bought SnS and was immediately attracted to it. Very, very nice and fun game. Played several matches online and well... lost almost all of'em, but still enjoyed a lot.

Oops, sorry. I'm used to say "race" whatever RTS game I play. Main post edited.

We discovered that the bad clicking in dialogues problem is caused by VSynch. We will release a patch to fix that as soon as possible, hopefully tonight. In the meanwhile, you can play normally if you turn VSynch on in your video drivers.

I'm sorry, but how? He didn't say anything racist at all. There are different races of human beings, that's just what it is.

My only suggestion is make skeletons immune to chinese oldmen spell. It says, that they control minds with zen and pop souls, but skeletons don't have brains or souls. So they should be immune to it as well as to poison.

Also viking campaign looks pretty strange at the beginning, since their storyline is conclusive, in my opinion.

We think we fixed the dialogue skipping issue on PC with the patch that was just released. For those who were having that problem, could you let us know whether it is gone now? Mac patch will hopefully follow tomorrow.

There are ethnicities, not races. To wit:

Among humans, race has no cladistic significance—all people belong to the same hominid subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.[8][9] Regardless of the extent to which race exists, the word "race" is problematic and may carry negative connotations.[10] Social conceptions and groupings of races vary over time, involving folk taxonomies[11][12][13] that define essential types of individuals based on perceived sets of traits. Scientists consider biological essentialism obsolete,[14] and generally discourage racial explanations for collective differentiation in both physical and behavioral traits.(Wikipedia, Race entry)
