Legion Expansion v0.15.0 released – the balance build

The Legion Expansion has been out for over a month now, and in that time we’ve been not only running internal playtests, but also watching your games and listening to your feedback.

This build focuses around many of the balance concerns people have had, from elements which made no sense like the Tyr not being able to hit things underwater, to the Comet proving to be too difficult to stop on multi-planet maps. There’s a lot of little changes here but it all adds up to make a big difference.

One area which has been highlighted is ease of use and knowing what to build. While we’re looking at what we can do about this, we urge you to check out the full Legion Expansion article. It has a breakdown of every unit, its strengths and weaknesses, and a video showing how it works.

So check out the latest version and please continue to provide your feedback here, in the official thread, and through the beta feedback form. Remember, the more detail you provide the more useful your feedback is.
