Its a great mod. The textures are excellent, the models are very well done compared to other mods I've played and I just like that the 2 fractions are very different to each other, how they're so balanced out, that u need different strategies to pull ur opponent under the waves and the new menu screen. This is a tremendous improvement to the original game of EAW.
The Covenant contain overpowered ships that, while they lack variety, put ur opponent on its toes, firing powerful plasma torpedoes and lasers. However, they are VERY expensive, and I found it hard to win battles over the numerous fleets of the UNSC (I recommend you control lots of asteroid mining facilities). The UNSC, on the other hand, specialise in large-fleet tactics, with the most useful ship being the hardy frigate, being cheap for its weapon systems.
However, as even the space version is incomplete, as the ships need custom speeches and there are no heroes (not including the SoF, as thats Home One)
Overall, I recommend this to stratagists that always have a trick up their sleeves, that are quick-thinkers and experts to this mod. Can't wait for the next release!
the covenant are too overpowered !!! i realize that you guys said they are suppose to win the space battles but then whats the point of playing as the UNSC ?? i love the ships and weapons but the with the shields, torpedoes and cleansing beam, it is just unfair ... for example, i lost over 8, get that, 8!! battlecruisers to 4 CCS's -_- i mean are you ******* serious !?!?!? i would like to see some balancing or at least the infinity or something that can acctually stand a chance ?? so PLEEEAAASSSEEE give the unsc a buff or nerf the Covi's !! im sure alot of people agree.
P.S. i love the mod but it just sucks not being able to win anything, i mean where is the fun in having to spend rediculous amounts of credits to just have them wasted ...
