I appreciate your passion!
I can confirm it’s NOT just a couple of teenagers going for a fast profit 🙂 We’ve been doing this for a while now and we are in it for the long haul.
Shield AI is WIP, as is a lot of the game (it’s in Early Access for a reason). You can help us with good feedback to guide us in the right direction! I’m personally an avid strategy game player and meaningful decisions combined with emergent gameplay mechanics is for sure the direction I want to drive the game at. I’m glad to hear you share that sentiment?
