An expansion/overhaul mod of epic proportions, with entirely rebalanced gameplay, expanded factions, new gametypes, graphical overhauls, and five new factions; stealth-based Confederate Revolutionaries, tower defense-inspired Atomic Kingdom of China, economy-focused Mediterranean Syndicate, DotA-esque Order of the Talon and spammy Electrical Protectorate.

GRAND ARMY OF THE EMPIRE OF THE RISING SUN

Having failed to achieve their goals, Japan has consolidated rule of the Pacific, and mourns the loss of the Emperor and his sole heir. Negotiations are already underway to form a closer bond with the Allied Nations, and they have turned their goals towards economic pursuits, with their nearly-instant cornering of the technology market almost bankrupting Futuretech. As a new threat rises on the mainland, the Imperial Army once again stands to arms, their technologically advanced machines of war once again brought to life in defense of their homeland.

At a Glance
Faction Colour : Orange
Gameplay Style : Speed and Flexibility
Preferred Theater of Operations : Sea Warfare
Strengths : Wicked fast and capable of traversing any terrain, with the ability to deal with most any threat.
Weaknesses : Expensive units combined with lack of specialty can leave them overwhelmed.

LIST IS UP FOR UPDATING. Stay alert, fans!

Nice, for now its my most favourite faction, but there are 2 things which a little confuse me.

1) When you write there "machine gun", you means these pulse weapons (blue bursts of energy)?
2) And Starspirit dont sounds Japan. I had a idea for its name, i will post it into forum.

Yeah, when machine guns are mentioned it generally just means anti-infantry, or high rate of fire. Not necessarily solid-shot weaponry.

As for the Starspirit, the name partly arose from an anime, from what I understand. It's not an anime I follow but I wasn't involved in the naming either... so I can't really give any input on the matter.

The name is a combination of the meaning of "Yamato" (as in Space Battleship Yamato) and the American name for the series, Starblazer. Considering that the name "Wave-Force" comes pretty much directly from SBY's Wave Motion weapons, I figured a more direct tribute in the form of a flying battleship was in order.

Pretty nice unit list for Empire of the Rising Sun.
A lot of nice changes, and it seems a lot more unique of a faction than it used to be. =P

why has Yuriko Omega lost here AA ability while the other faction hero's lose nothing?

DO you mean the japs will now get the yamoto as a battleship or will it be a space faring/floating one?

Because Yuriko is a little overpowered. She can kill a Kirov a second.

Hmm, i don't really like that the Skywing looses it's machine gun.. Do you make the recharge of it's secondary ability faster then, since it has to get down in the water to reload, and then up again to attack?

You'll be able to drop between water and sky instantly, though reloading will take several seconds while underwater. The idea is that the Seawing/Skywing never quite felt badass enough for it's concept, so now we've reimagined it as a fighter/subhunter. It's sea-based AA role is now filled by the Sub Samehada and the Gunboat VX.

I got an idea for the empire

a unit called

Moblie
Artillery
Hacking
Explosive
Renderer

Codename M.A.H.E.R

A TANK THAT CAN DISGUISE ITSELF AS ENEMY TANKS THAT CAN HACK INTO POWER SUPPLIES AND AS A SECONDARY ABILITY IT MAKES A HUGE EXPLOSION

What happens if a Hammer tank Leech beams an Incrediblie Mobile Fortress Tatsu?

Nothing much. It's a building, and Leech Beam only really applies to units.

I feel like a rat shouldn't be a powerful artillery weapon O_o.
Maybe a light, speedy artillery?
Also, seeing as the Rising Sun is a master of the water, why not uptech the Kappa?
I wouldn't mind having a ranged medium destroyer to balance out a Naval army.
Another idea: More Gundam.
Mecha Kitsune/King Oni doesn't cut it.
Maybe Raijin can be a mecha that has an airborne anti-surface Waveforce cannon secondary instead?
To compliment the Fujin?
That is all.

(Yeah, I know that the faction is being redesigned, but I really want to get these off my chest before the unit lists are redone.
It really bothers me that I didn't suggest these earlier, because now they are probably already in effect/design.)

I think the mobile fortress should also be like a mobile land mass, which tanks and ground forces can be drived onto, buildings can be builded on it and it could move! won't that be the perfect transportation? And it should have 1 of those big guns that the black tortuise have.
