Hey Brad... I'm concerned that we won't see 10,000 man armies anymore. Is that the case?
There won't be 10,000 unit armies in v1.0. It'll probably top out at hundreds instead of thousands in a given fight. We'll look at increasing the limit in the future.
Unless companys upgrade into into something larger (Platoons?) I can't imagine tactical battles of 10,000 units... That's like moving 500 units around on screen.
Yea, we've played around with all kinds of combinations over the past few months to see what is the most fun. The larger ones make great screenshots but are just not very fun to play or manage.
10,000 guys require 1000 gildar per turn to maintain.
