By 'easy for everyone..', they mean a lack of any real RTS elements. No strategy involved, just button mash 'til you have a huge army, then win. Reminds me of the free strategy games one can play for free online. Actually, come to think of it, I have played better online for free. I will admit this game is mildly engaging for the first few skirmishes, but fails to impress after that due to lack of content and overly simple play. Now you can purchase additional content in the form of two other titles.....at $30 a pop. Just not worth it. All 3 for the price of one, now that makes more sense. Basically this is supposed to be an RTS, and it ends up playing as some sort of cheap phone app. I want to plan, bide my time, probe for weaknesses, try different scenarios, then launch my attack....this game just isnt for me, nor I imagine the true RTS fan. I'll stick with my Command & Conquer and even Halo Wars thanks

Death sworn are weeeeeeak need adjustment. Light bringers is broke but still not as strong as renagade light bringer is a fun faction hard to beat so test ur strategy. Death sworm needs more hp n maybe dps n a Little bit fast build times but its fun to play
