[TestFlight Open] Plated Glory - Online Scorched Earth-like realtime artillery

I just started working on a scorched-earth-like turn-based artillery game and I am in need of suggestions, it's in early stages.

The game is realtime, so you join a match of 4 players and battle until the end.

There is currently no singleplayer functionality.

You earn money by damaging other player tanks and you can spend the money at the beginning of each round by purchasing different weapons.

Here is a screenshot:

I adore artillery games, easily one of my favourite genres.

A wide variety of weapons is always something important to aim for in games like this. A range of “classics” and a few outlandish ones to keep things interesting.
Also I’m hoping terrain will be proceduraly generated with a selection of themes? Mountain, desert, snow etc.

I’d be very interested in getting involved in testing if possible.

Ok so it turns out the game is actually a lot more fun if it's not turn based, so when the round starts everyone can move around and shoot when they want

Would that be cool?

How about having it as an option? I’m fairly certain that I would not be a fan of that; the turn based mechanic is core to this sort of game to me.

That is,of course, a personal perspective; other folks may love it. Options are always good!
