This game is so F'ing hard
Going into the game completely blind, didnt watch twitch streams i discover everything by myself, but gawd damn this is hard... Sometimes you just look away for a sec, and a camp gets infected and its too late to stop the swarm. I allways play without pause, just because.

Well i'd say the more time passes, the easier it gets because you get an army, you get balistas and stuff. (btw this is on the fist map only)

im still really loving it, there wasnt any good RTS in a really long time, really happy for the devs and their succes.

I've found the game really easy so far, but then on the other hand, I spend almost all my time paused until day 60 or more so that a game for me takes 6-9 hours to complete.

I know it can be done, but I don't see yet how its possible to win the game without using pause all the time.

Well
A: The game is Trial and Error so you are supposed to learn from your failures
B: They give you pause for a good reason, use it
C: Don't feel pressured to play on the default difficulty if you are having trouble.

You seem pretty salty, probably because you use the pause button all the time, like a puccy :D

I see your intelligence isn't the best our species has to offer, but I'm going to roll the dice and hope you can understand me.
I pointed the root of your problem was the lack of micromangement, which the pause button is the ultimate key to such management.
You calling me a "PUCCY XDDDD" not only highlights whatever mental issues you may suffer from ... but you are also insulting me for using a tool that the game more or less revolves around while calling me salty for pointing out how disabled you sounded. Are you going to call me a "puccy" for when I used a hammer to nail a picture frame on the wall? Instead of bashing my bloody head into the wall for results? Because tools are for puccys amrite?

I never claimed he did, he complained about failing to micro his colony.

I have yet to win a single game, even on the easiest settings.

I would buy it again!

It is you sir that are a poor example of what our species has to offer, 'pointing out how disabled you sounded' shows that YOU lack intelligence choosing to insult someone by calling them 'disabled' is ignorant & downright distasteful.

Please lecture me on someone saying the word "PUCCY" doesn't scream pre teen with a behavioral disorder? Not to mention its also evident from the ironic fact that he states his problem in one sentence, then in the next says he ignores the solution ... "just because". Either hes an edgelord who doesn't have time for the system or has some issues. Although, I'll admit its likely the former.

With every loss you learn something new , and since you prefer to go blind and without pause there are going to be a lot more "learning experiences" before you come close to a win .
