Sega, i know you have probably recieved a bunch of complaints about this, but you really need to make the camera so that you can zoom out more. I think this game will be amazing, but you need to fix that camera angle. Its not so much a factor with some games, like EaW, but when you have giant lumbering walkers, you need to be able to zoom out and see more than five units.
I know through word-of-mouth that several devs are toying with making new maps in their spare time, too. it's been a bit of a sore spot that 3 patches have come out and the map editor has not been released, but rest assured it ought not to be long now, I would think!
I hope they come out with a decent map editor. I think that would put it up there in the ranks with Starcraft for best RTS games. The map editor for that game is really easy to use. C&C Generals is a good RTS game too but its riddled with bugs and the map editor kind of blows chunks. You have to be a programmer to really get any real use out of it. I think C&C Generals would be really great if they had kept support up on it.
