very frustrating: spam! spam! spam!
I am new to this game. I play a lot of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, and I wanted to explore new RTS games.
Sins of Solar Empire: Rebellion came up as a very interesting candidate.
Impressions so far: you have to spam to win. Haven't managed to win a game yet.
I started a small random single player game (where is the difficulty settings for single player?), and after 4 Hours of barely surviving the pirate raids (why they are so spammy?), I got owned by AI. I tried to outbid the AI on pirate raids (wait until last second and increment the bid), and ran out of money. My 3 capital ships against one of AI, somehow they could not kill it. Then backup came, and I got owned hard.
Is there a way for beginner to ease into this game? The upgrades from tech tree seem have no effect to the outcome.
Lack of proper Single Player setup screen (eg: set starting position, selecting faction tweak difficulty etc.) is disappointed. Or did I not see it?
The game seems to target multiplayer, and I have no chance winning that . So far I seem to figure out that you can start a multiplayer game with AI (and rest of the players locked out), which will work as single player.
I like to play defensively, and slowly expand. I guess this game is wrong for me?
