List of Popular Suggestions

This thread will be updated once a week in correspondence with the above poll.
This is a dynamic thread that will remain consistently updated to reflect the community's preferences on the priority list on potential (but not confirmed) suggestions.

Please reply to the thread if you think anything should be added or removed from this list.

I plan to keep it updated.

Additionally, if you've seen any Official Responses to any of the following - let me know and I'll add it!


1st. Character Customization
The ability to customize the face of your character; regardless of what class you're playing. Face, facial hair, hair, etc.

2nd. +Points for Healing (Surgeons)
Simple suggestion I've seen a lot. Surgeons should get a set of amount of points for healing; whether per second or per soldier healed to full health.

3rd. A Nerf to Riflemen
Yes. I'm aware that they were reduced from 10 to 6, but I still see a lot of complaining about them.

AGS' Response: "We'll be increasing the time it takes to reload a rifle to balance the class out. Both teams both equally have the same number of rifleman slots available so neither is put at a disadvantage."
Source: Steam Discussion



Increase size of Compass Bearings
The N, W, S, E and everything in between is seemingly too small on the minimap.
Source: Confirmed by Refleax. (Discord Discussion)[/center]

Map Voting or Map Skipping
I've seen a general consensus that certain maps are just not as popular as others. A vote to skip system may be welcome.

Change Reticule Colour
An option to change the reticule to a colour of your choice (mainly for Arctic maps).
Source: Confirmed by Refleax. (Discord Discussion)

Independent Musician Volumes
Surprisingly, I see a lot of people wanting to individually edit the volumes of Fifers, Drummers and Pipers.

Flag Melee
Not sure what it is; whether reach, hitbox, registration or the HP buff to flags - but a lot of people complain about their melee.
Developer Insight: 1 | 2

Server Queue
An option to join the queue to a full server, instead of staring at the 150/150 for it to go down to 149.

Grappling Hooks for Naval
Allow ships to grapple onto other ships in Naval Battlefield.

Class Limits in Private Servers
The ability to change the amount of soldiers that can spawn as each individual class.

AGS' Response: "We will have functionality that will enable server hosts to change class limits to their choosing."
Source: Discord Post

Progression System (+Level UP)
A system of basic level progression (with experience) to unlock cosmetic benefits for your character, faction, weapon or Regiment.[/center]


Did I miss anything? Let me know!

I've suggested having a short timer allowing the person who loaded the gun to use it first instead of having somebody steal it.

Decent idea; artillery stealing is a problem.

That'd be an issue if you had a designated Loader and Shooter though, no?

I don't believe you're giving the minimap suggestion the attention it deserves.

You should edit this in:


CARDINAL DIRECTIONS NEED TO BE BIGGER ON THE MINIMAP

I have seen configurable class limits for private servers suggested a few times. Here was Rycon's response:

Eventually, I hope there will be designated artillery crew classes and access to cannons will be restricted to them.

People who complain about riflemen need to grow a pair.

They can cause significant problems, but there is a whole thread devoted to discussing them if you'd like to contribute:

Not sure if this has already been mentioned elsewhere, but I would really like to see some sort of progression system implemented, which would induce players to keep playing, I believe. The rewards don't even have to be anything major, just like a badge/rank/level that will appear next to your name on the scoreboard - something to boast as a feather in your cap. Unlockable customization options could also be an alternative reward, and will give players something to work toward as a goal/achievement, instead of just doing countless battles for no real purpose beyond the enjoyment of the actual gameplay.

While I don't disagree that some kind of reward might help keep people engaged (badge/rank/etc), Refleax did confirm that there will be never be "unlockables" as that "isn't the spirit of the game." He said he didn't want players who play less to feel less important. That was in a voip conversation, so I don't have a screenshot and I might have slightly misquoted him.

I have also suggested that their be lines added to the minimap to denote the edge of the map. I have seen regiments get REALLY tangled up on the snowy maps because they group by the edge of the map.

Also, whoever is at the helm of a ship in naval should get assists like the flag bearer. Would also love to see points for sinking a ship.
