hey i now that you were updating the nomads faction. when are we expecting them to be playable?
What do you mean by "playable"?
That you can run a multiplayer game with Nomads? You can already do that. When you create a new lobby, under "Game Type" you pick "Nomads."
That it's properly balanced against the other 4 factions? That's more a matter of opinion as to whether the balance is good or not. I don't know if people are still tweaking the balance or if it's in a stable place. Nomads games get played every day, including by people rated 1k+, so even competitive people are playing it. If the balance was bad, they probably wouldn't.
That Nomads are included as an option in the ladder? That should never happen.
It is hard enough to balance four factions, let alone five.
