I posted this on steam as well as I am not sure where to place feature suggestions and balancing discussion.
Thoroughly loving this game. I bought into first access but had a break from the game waiting for online matchmaking to be released. Now that this feature exists the game is excellent. Just 2 things:
Will a more in depth online ranking system will be developed? I like how loses or win %'s are not shown publicly but some kind of rating/mmr/ELO system would be great.
Also a balance issue I noticed. I was playing a game in the masquerade map. The map starts with an NPC thug spawning on both sides in the same location, just south of the hideouts. However all the following NPC thugs spawned on my opponents half of the map for the following 5+ turns. With no ability to level my gang I lost gang control very early on and the game snowballed from there. I have only noticed this occurring once but it can be very crippling. Possibly something that may need to be looked at.
Keep up the great work.
