Ronimo just doesn't get it.
I get that new characters keep the game fresh and everything, but come on, the sillhouette looks like some goofy detective riding a space.. puffer fish. What Ronimo needs to do in my opinion is make some new MAPS. Maps, not characters. I feel that they're rushing the characters, just like Gearbox is rushing everything about Borderlands 2 (which I've already grown bored of). I think we can all agree that AI Station 404 is crap and having that large 33% percent chance of landing on it (which with my luck is about 66%) is extremely frusturating.

On a side note, I understand the nerfs to Froggy, I saw them coming. Doesn't change my play style any, I can still dominate entire teams given the right circumstances. However, did Leon really deserve that health nerf? I've never had any problems against Leon, aside from when the player relies on luck and gets twelve crits in a row. All the nerf does is seal the fact that Leon can't do anything against tanks. He's right back to what I first deemed him as, "the useless kill-stealer". I can play Yuri far more effectively than I can play Leon, lol.

As for the bots themselves, I now fear the AI Lone Star more than I've ever feared the AI Clunk. We've had; aimbot Clunk and his ability to know -exactly- when to self-destruct for maximum BS. AI Leon with his aimbot tongue snatch, I shouldn't have to explain how frusturating this is. And AI Froggy with his oddly low cooldown and ability to glue himself to your character when he spins. Now we have AI Lone Star with an ability that to can do 60 damage and has a cooldown of almost nothing. I get trying to help the AI, but they're making them extremely difficult to deal with in most circumstances. Albeit in the late game they're still complete wusses if you're a higher level than them, and they get stuck quite easily when trying to kill Creeps for health, making them vulnerable.

All of my ♥♥♥♥♥ing aside, I still feel that the recent patches have been a little iffy, and I'm seriously worried that my adorable little space game is going to go the way of Halo 3. Please Ronimo, don't let that happen. You're not Bungie. And, jeez, I simply wanted to talk about new maps, and I ended up venting all my complaints into this. Oh well, I feel better at least.

Heh. This is probably the one time I'll ever make a forum post. I hate forums. I thought this needed to be said however.

Well that's something. Still, they need to cool it with the characters and skins and put ALL their effort into the maps. Take their time and make some steller zones for us to duke it out in. Just.. anything but AI Station. I hate that place.

Also, unrelated but I forgot to mention it in my ranting. They need to add it so you can A: Choose what AI to bring into private and practice matches, and B: program the AI for other characters. It can't be that hard. I'm just sick of always having Clunks.

all right things, let's see in the next patch what they are doing
Dabu Nov 27, 2012 @ 5:52pm 
actually they dev new map since 1 month ago, you can try that in beta awesomenouts :)
just wait till they lauch it

How could you complain about new characters? They're easier (not easy) to make than maps and quicker, and require less art. The more characters we have, the more a map will add to the experience, so don't worry.

I think they also need to add a Lobby.

Yes, this has been requested a lot, and it would be benificial to the experience.

Hey guys keep calm and just wait remember ronimo is not a big company like all the other ones that make MOBA games its no Riot or S2 or Valve but in my opinion its better to wait because so they can test everything and can fix all/most of the bugs the new map could have again ceep calm and wait its just a matter of time when the new map will come out i mean its in beta phase thats at least something also remember that most MOBAs only have 1 or 2 maps so we can say that we are lucky to have 3 right from the start and get a new one soon (when i remember how long riot needed for cristal scar then this one will hopefully not take that long)
Mr Hipster Nov 28, 2012 @ 7:47am 
dude what u got against borderlands and halo?
Gamerpon Wippo Nov 28, 2012 @ 8:45am 
New Stuff is always fine. Although I agree that maps are way more important right now.
Blazing Glaceon Nov 28, 2012 @ 10:46am 
That's the one thing about making a thread, is Steam keeps spamming me with the new comments, lol. Another reason I hate forums.

As far as the AI's go. I personally dont mind them being better than they use to be. It balences the game's when you got 3 human players against 1 and two decent bots. Me, I rather have two crappy humans than two crappy bots.

about the maps, be patient. Ronimo is well aware of the map situation and like Fishmanderp said

we get characters for FREE and slowly but surley awesomenaut is inching to becoming a more expensive game or price increase because of all the hard work, balences, patches, additional characters, maps, skins, AI, and more.

Yeah, I agree with Mr.1 Hunnit. This game is like terraria and its updates. What game that you pay for does this like Awesomenauts? None. Also, I thought that space station 404 was ok. It had its own thing with gravity. Also, you still have to remember that this game started out on console. They didn't have to, but they ported it. Thats what I call a devoloper being fair. Not only that but they have doubled how many characters they originally had. The only problem is Leon being OP.
