Well them off with heavies/soldiers or give them bigger vision with runners.

Early days indeed

A few things about the sniper is it is a ranged attacker. it can deal HEAVY damage on targets at a distance. the three square range also means you can attack a heavy unit beyond its moving range

Also, it can fire across gaps and spaces on the map

Remember, these are more support classes than your offensive tanks and soldiers.

Definitley agree on buffing them being important. It stops runners from coming out of nowhere and just 1-shotting them. In choke points i could see how they could work against heavies and soldiers. But they're not my style, maybe some others will use them more effectviley. Really excited to see how this game develops stratetigcally.

Edit: @QA. I'll try some of that out in friendly, thanks

Can you start as many games as you want to?
I see a potential problems with people who are about to loose are simply abandoning ongoing games.
Maybe there should be a time limit like if you don't do your turn within seven days you automatically loose and your oponent wins.

Exactly what you said is already in place. After 7 days of not making a turn, you automatically forfeit. You will however receive a warning 24h prior to your automatic forfeit.

BTW, I tried this on both an iPhone 4 and a new iPad and this is so much more pleasant on the iPad. So if you got both, the iPad is an easy choice for this.

How do you buy the maps?
I do not see them on the store and now I am playing a match on one of these locked maps. Even more lost than before!

The maps are bundled with the team whose theme they sport. Independent of you buying teams (and maps) you can play on these maps and against those teams in league matches where you don't get to pick the map and your opponents team.

Keep playing and most importantly: watch replays of your lost games to see what went wrong and how to improve it.
