Would it be possible to enable multiplayer matches with heroes from Galactic Empires with all their passive abilities from this mode? Kind of as a showdown between two player empires, to put them to the ultimate test. This would be very unbalanced of corse, and probably there should be a big blinking red warning about that, but i think it could be fun once in a while.[...]
1. The Galactic Empire is unfortunately single player only. We looked into Multiplayer support but unfortunately we didn't have time, and we were also worried about balance issues. Races and Secret Techs are balanced to be used only with each other, and allowing free mixing of races and techs (as the empire allows) leads to crazy combinations that are simply beyond our ability balance.
Either way, this new mode seems great!
Im curious about the smaller changes in the Triceratops-Patch, since the last balance changes in combination with the AI-Personality-Traits did something very good to the feel of the game. Can't say what exactly it is, but it's better.
