  • Update! 3.40 - Focus Fire

    Hello my friends, developers
    I'm gonna talk about focus fire changes! after the update 3.40!

    1/ Before
    we used to use focus fire even the flag is active (before ending flag's time)

    2/ After
    why should i wait untill the flag desappears to use focus fire? (ending flag's time)

    PS;
    * against some nightmare bases, we need to be fast and use attack cards correctly!
    * if my troops are behind the rock, focus fire will be useless because they can't shoot over it.
    this change make me really disappointed & unsatisfied at all.

    Thanks for the video Rabah! The team is aware that there has been some change to the behavior between these Specials in some instances and we are looking into why this occurs.

    It's frustrating, the troops ignore focus fire, the most valuable special for flank attack,
    in the real nightmare bases you have no chance through choke point.

            Maybe I’m also not at your level and that’s why I don’t fully understand your frustration. But it seems that the rally flag is acting the same way as the earlier update they did back in 2.6/2.7 can’t really remember when the developers had fixed the flag. In the videos shown above you are shown enjoying the new update. I kinda liked the units ignoring all other commands to obey the flag, makes it easier to regroup your army. I also always waited for the flag to almost time out before I used Focus fire and I didn’t really use the flag to get thru barbed wire. But then again we have different styles of play and we are not all gifted players like others so we might not fully understand the change.

              listen to me bro, i'll explain:
              after this change ( update 3.0), when we use rally flag the units will ignore everything and go directly to the rally flag area.
              well, if we use rally flag and focus fire at the same time, obviously they will ignore the focus fire but when they reach the rally flag area they will start firing without waiting the disappearance of flag.
              but after update 3.40 , troops ignore focus fire even if they're in the rally flag area. and will start firing after the disappearance of flag.

              *example; before this update 3.40, when we use rally flag and units start regrouping. using focus fire in this situation means;
              -units which are in the rally flag area start firing directly.
              -other units will ignore focus fire untill they reach that area to start firing.

              i hope it's very clear to you now

                Been playing again and my impression is that game is overall better (especially after patch 3.42)
                • The new UI for managing Hats is the best improvement
                • Opponent variety has gone way up (not just facing the same bases any more)
                • Focus Fire working consistently (yes I also noticed it gets ignored if Rally still active so I adjusted to way until Rally ends)
                • The A.I. path finding is not doing completely unintuitive things (there are still cases where they can be confused and taking less desirable paths, but it is much improved)
                • The game is running stably

                  The problem is: Bombardiers can shoot without sight of Line, if you lead your troops to a spot but there is a little gap between walls and rocks,
                  you have no time to wait until the flag is down, you must use focus fire immediately or your troops will be all dead in just 2 seconds,
                  you know how overpowered Bombardiers vets rank 3 are, only 2-3 Bombardiers can kill 45 High Health units, it's insane how strong blast damage they do.

                        why should i watch my troops are being killing!
                        using the flag makes the troops walk around the rally flag area when they reach it, beacuse i can't use focus fire untill the flag is over
                        before, i used to use focus fire when my troops reach the flag directly, just to avoid like this situations.
