Hi, I'm very new to FAF, having only joined 2 days ago. I did however have some experience with SC1 and SC2 before
I have to say I am already considering quitting for one specific reason: Bad UI
The biggest problem I see is with the manual reclaim "feature" - it is absolutely necessary to use manual reclaim to be competitive on a decent level, especially since you get punished by the game for using the attack-move order to reclaim. There's two problems with that:
- Clicking on rocks and trees is not very interesting
- This makes the game require much more APM for no good reason. Instead of managing your armies you have to focus on battling the outdated UI.
I've seen the forums and I know it's been argued over to death but I'm fairly certain small things like this scare away new players regularly
