I was so excited when I had heard Ace Of Spades was being released on Steam as a full game. Then after the release my friend(who has never played the game) said that people were complaining at all the changes and it wasnt made by the original Dev. This worried me.The first thing i said was "as long as the game is generally the same and I could play CTF then im all good". My friend then replied "Actually now that you mention it, I don't think they have a CTF. I remember someone complaining abotu that too". That is when I releaized how little Jaggex Even knew about this game(it started as a CTF game, how is that not the first implementation). Then I realized the direction in which they were going.
I started looking at the steam forums and seeing Community members comments getting deleted and hearing all the complaints of being ignored. That is when I was truly sad and fully unsold on buyig the game. I had watched gameplay of the miner class with a drill which sounds cool in theory but it gets rid of the whole build factor when theres a drill that can take out towers in seconds. Also the Rocketeer??? I mean come on. Even the pre made maps pissed me off. Idk why i feel the need to say this but you all most definitly felt the same. Then While looking at more youtube videos I found someone who posted a link to Buildandshoot.com when I clicked it, it was like entering disney world for the first time. I was so excited to start playing again. Man I'm so glad these guys that put this site are doing what they are doing because This game is so unique and fun.
I am not sure if you guys will be improving the game other than bug fixes and things. But I would like to see major additions to the game which would be neat. The one thing Ace of Spades(jaggex's Version) had that intrigued me was "Classes". Sure not in the horrid way they did it. But maybe we could have things like a "Miner" thats slightly faste at diggingr and can hold more blocks. Maybe even carries 1 C4 explosive for taking down towers. But to do that if feel like you shoud be able to dig deepter into the ground so you can menouver like a mole, heh we could call it the Mole Class lol. The reason I bring up the miner in such detail is because i love being the guy prtecting the base and bulding towers. It's so fun. Anyway, Maybe you can even have a sniper class but not too overpowered and other obvious classes. But in a way that works for this game. But I really do want people to buld maps and maybe even you guys provide maps of your own so that there is more space to build high up and space to dig real deep. This would be intresting.
Theres a bunch more I could think up of like blocks that are slightly stronger but waste more blocks to use and take a bit of time or something like that. I am just really Happy it's here and hope it doesnt go away. Keep up the good work. now, It's time for me to go kill some blue guys
