for me it's a slight error or over sight not to have someone on the alpha and beta who doesn't or won't use a given thing, in this case Nato icons, and then from the start, something can be planned and put in place, for what is always welcomed and used, once done.
but as long as it can be modded, it's no big deal, just some will wait until it's done and they see them, and as long as they like them and can use them in everything will buy at a later date.
kind of like having all windows 7 and 8 users on a given test and finding out later on release it doesn't work with win 10 for some slight and easy to fix reason,...
in game tips and pop up plus a NATO name chart / table included in the Unit descriptions in game would have been better for most including me.
not everyone can or wants to memorize a manual or have it open on a second or 3rd monitor just to understand a counter or part of a given thing.
I've always had the theory that if you plan for the most, then you upset the least, but if you plan only for a given audience, then that is only the ones who buys and plays long term.
this isn't a negative post, just my opinion and wish the game all the luck and success, same as any war game, as you can't have too many war games, i know, i collect them
I don't see it as the same as any of that. The icons are chrome. Yes, some of them give the units special abilities, but those abilities are listed in the Unit Report. It's the abilities that matter, not the graphical representation of them.
