I bought the game on Steam and finished (I guess) my first game, but it wasn’t a great experience.
The asynchronous play isn’t fun for me.
It ruins the rhythm of the game and having to relaunch the game and see a replay everytime to remember what has happened is annoying.
I can wait 5 or even 10 minuts per turn, but the “unknown amount under 3 days” is just too much.
Also, you can run multiple matches at the same time (I don’t want to do that) and if my opponent is doing that, he or she can easily quit our match prematurely when they get bored or start losing just a bit (and it takes at most 3 days before I know that).
Another issue (related to the asynchronous play) is that the match ended when I wasn’t online and it disappeared.
When I launched the game to check the match I started yesterday, I couldn’t find it.
I know it’s over because I gained EXP, but I can’t know if I won or lost and how it ended.
This one blew my mind and I’m sure it’s not a feature of the game, but I’m surpised that it hasn’t been fixed before the early access (has no one ever complained about that?).
Dispite all that, the gameplay itself was intriguing and I’m sure it’s going to be more fun with repeated plays (so much things to explore), but its asynchronous nature and the ending problem are discouraging to do that.
Also, at this rate it will take too long to unlock other captains.
I might be in a minority, but please don’t ignore potential players like me.
