My friend and I put together this small list of feedback from the Beta. First off, great job. 343i and Creative Assembly have done an excellent job of capturing and evolving what made HW1 great while making it for a new generation of players. I’ve put more hours than I care to admit into HW1 and have noticed a few things I think could be changed to improve HW2. By no means do I mean for this to sound nit picky or that the game is bad, just looking to provide constructive feedback as requested for this great beta. All of this is from an Xbox One perspective.
A progress bar/or percentage (like HW1) of construction progress to be displayed when a building is under construction. - Visual feedback when a leader point earned a bit more prominent. It’s very easy to not notice and forget they are even there. - Visual feedback when you multiple upgrades in cue. IE darken the slice of the upgrade selected after the in progress upgrade. - The ability to see your partner’s field of view on the minimap in multiplayer matches would make communication much easier just like in HW1.Controls
The ability to hold X and set waypoints for a unit needs to return. - Classic HW1 style control scheme.
for example switching quick scroll to left trigger, etcGameplay
Unit movement when grouped is not uniform. In HW1 when you had units of varying types moving together they would hold the same speed as the slowest unit. Bringing this back would help greatly and prevent the lonely banshee assaulting without infantry support.Just a few things we thought of. But HW2 is great and thanks 343i and Creative Assembly for giving us the sequel we never thought would happen.
