What I expect In The future with this game

What I believe this game could be is great! But... there are issues to be discussed like one troops and leveling up I think you guys did great but it’s a slow grind if you have time you can make your legions grow but if you enjoy the game and don’t have much time on your hands this isn’t for you I just want a in between instead of waiting hours for something to build can you lower the time I enjoy playing this game and I’d like to play it more throughout the day but bc it takes so longggggg to build I lose interest quickly! And I love 40k games this game I think is the best FREE 40k game out there but it needs work I want more diversity with troops I watch a YouTuber who plays 40k a lot (Captain shack) (the exp gamers) and I’m just disappointed with how many troops there are and there’s no tanks or flying units Which makes me upset about it I still love to play and I hope you take my advice on more troops more units and less upgrade time for such troops please and thank you 🗣🗣🙏🏼🙏🏼

13 months and still great!!!

So this is only builder game where, you control your armys actin in real-time, and the warhammer setting is fantastic, great amount of long term active players.
And this is truly (sadly maybe only one left in gaming companys)
Its not a pay to play or pay to win! They have enough optional vids to watch for bonuses that must keep it going.
The rare times $ offers r made r not much 10$30$ you get a splash screen ONCE only, then its in your mailbox thats it no annoying constant pushing. And the (Gems/diamonds) in this game are call Machine Spirit, and they dont really give a huge or really any advantage over not getting, just a time saver. And they give plenty of free MS with logging in, and small missions you can accomplish for game of this genre!
A must for warhammer 40/30k fans

God the balancing is so bad in pvp. Everything else is pretty good but for me the pvp is the main course. I have so many problems the broken leaders and the way you win the game you literally can’t win against someone who is using all jet bikes and your using infantry maybe if you unlocked tanks or a dreadnought earlier I wouldn’t have had this problem and some of the leader abilities are kinda unfair spawning in a dreadnought extra damage to jet bikes which are already unfun to play against garbage Ai when I tell my units to pull back I don’t mean half of the units I mean ALL OF THEM and it’s so annoying when people run away like you cannot catch up to them even as emperors children with a speed boosting relic I can not catch up with terminators who are supposed to be slow and tanky but no the can zoom away for tactical squads who are slow which doesn’t make sense. Another prom let I have is the legion bonuses mostly the death guard and world eaters, 5 percent to health on all units and is able to stack with relics??? 5 percent more damage and that’s able to stack on relics as well as certain leaders able to boost health and damage?? Please fix this
