Hi all HW user,
my download is now at 75% at steam and it will take some time to finish. I have to laugh loud all the time, i reading all the postings about, what HWR is not. I´m really amused about the number of posts in this short time. … this and this dont work.
You guys belived really you will get a HW1 with a HW2 engine?
Hords of modders tryed to implement HW and HWC gamemechanics in HW2 since HW2 was relaised. I read lots of posts at relicnews forum for over 10years and most thing cant work with a HW2 basic. Greate mods were done, but nothing have to do with HW1 HWC gamestyle.
But back to HWR.
It was so clear since the updated HW2 engine to use was disclosed. And at every single videostyle from gearbox say it loud, that there wont be a HW1-gamemechanic. I watched every stuff they published. But they published not really mutch, and hide the HW-gameplay long (all) time massive.
Really simple every good HW1 player will miss the liberty of shipcommand, the direct and fast command execution, the simple and powerful menues (ec. with the old HW-bildmanager you can set the bildorders crossclass 10times faster and simpler with SCHIFT using than in HWR - g there you can watch the battle, but you have no time for your fleet), the supersimple powerful fleet-text-selection-menue right corner and at the end, the result of the combinations of this points. That is what makes HW.
I wont give a lecture, what is so greate in HW and Cata and not in HW2 or HWR. There were other discussions for years in all fanforums in the past.
In my optinion HW2 is a büroratic monster and why should HWR mutch different from it.
One thing is funny, i read to mutch things Cata it not a real HW because this and this. But HW1 and HW2 mixing from gearbox is a marketing desaster. Complete nebs can belive it for weeks month now, but experienced HW´ler sniff the truth what HWR will be. No HW1, but a greate grafik HW2 remake.
So everyone know what he bought with HWR. So there will be a conclusion:
Please people, stopp be nasty about HWR. You guys know it before if you are a real fan of the HW-Serie.
Hope that gearbox will fix so mutch it is possible and make a good Multiplayer game.
In the past HW havent a chance to earn a large Multiplayerfanbase with a serious multiplayer ladder for years, it was to buggy, won and a small fanbase. I think HWR will never geht the glory of HW muliplayer - that mean HWR-Multiplayer will have only a very small alcove in the gameworld. Enjoy it. And if you dont like HWR use the orginal with Gameranger or the orginal in the remasterd version is useful. Remind HW Multiplayer dies complete with the end of won, the communiy were splitted - can this fixed by remasterd classic – who know.
So Download is at 89% and i go sleep.
Tomorrow it will check out HWR little bit, but HW and HWC Multiplayer was and will be the true love, because they are greate games with a real soul of fighting.
PS: Of course, we hope the support will be greate - reaction time with bugfixing, multiplayerlobby or other stuff. Without this HWR lose his shine.
PPS: 100% / Sure, no HW classic multiplayer- or lanfunktion … that would be a greate detail - HW1 Multiplayer without gameranger, tungle or hamchi - hope dies at last.
