Official Twitter teasing something, I would guess DLC or an update of some kind. Looking forward to it. I occasionally go back to this game, just like I would with Advance Wars.

holy shit copy and paste on scripts alone is WOW.

The sole reason I have not put more time into the editors. I dropped off Chroma Squad because the editor was buggy, but it at least had copy/paste so I made a couple episodes, but making anything scripted in Wargroove was so daunting to have to remember exact verbage. Can't wait for that change alone! Finally, I will start on a campaign - or at the very least a series of maps with a narrative through-line.

Having searchable lobbies would be dope for people to host their maps. I don't play randoms because the maps suck. I want to use ones I made or other community-approved maps.

I'm most excited for the editor changes - hoping the lava biome is indeed a new addition. I also want some extra backgrounds since there were some in the story mode not available in creator mode. A pure ocean backdorp comes to mind.

I actually created a full storyline a while back but this will hopefully get me to actually add maps to each chapter as well as tinker with what I've already made. Looking forward to getting back into this game!

I got back into the campaign and finally beat the second to last mission.

FUCK that last mission. Wtf?! I hadn't used the difficulty sliders the entire game but this mission may break that.

I had to scum it. Can't imagine doing it without doing the CO glitch. Pretty sure it was patched out.
CO glitch? I'm not aware of what that is.

Also I have no idea why they decided to give you Nuru there. She's completely useless after one groove, and after her nerf, you can't get any of the big ticket units.

If the boss had her CO charge full you could save and reload from menu in and she was duplicated as one of your characters to then control or something? I forget the specifics. But you could then just gang up and kill her right there and win.

New content coming! The most interesting bit...

  • BIG brand new content –full details to be revealed at a later date…
Very excited for this.

On another note, one way I can tell that WarGroove is living up to the legacy of Advance Wars is that I am still going on post launch era "kicks" with it like I would do with the AW games. The fact that I can do that and it still remains fun is a sign that they have made it, and it is worthy of the legacy AW created.

Usually it takes a while to find a game in QuickPlay because everyone just uses discord, but I found one, won, queued for another... And got matched with the same person. I saw they were playing on PC so I looked them up on Steam and added them. They wanted to do a custom lobby so we could have Fog of War and choice of map, so we bailed on the QuickPlay game and they gave me a code. I won that one too, it was pretty great. I managed to bait the commander into a treb at max range, got a couple of more hits in, and went in for the kill with Valder.

I've been using Valder... He's seriously underrated. That Groove charge speed is insane to the point where you can have it up almost other turn. You get lots of soldiers quickly... AND in a critical hit position with haste! The person I played against used Sigrid. She's strong, but I think her biggest weakness is that if she takes the bait and uses her Groove on a full health unit you didn't mind losing, you have a setup (particularly in fog) that can decimate her and capitalize on her Groove's long charge time. If she ever gets baited into her Groove, she's in serious trouble. I think Sigrid might be overrated for that reason.

played this through GP and this is incredibly slow and tedious. Why can't you turn off tutorials?

Figured it won't quite be "new news, new thread" worthy until it's revealed, but...


New Commander being teased!

Is cross play coming for ps4 now, or is that headline not as universal as it sounded?

But yes! Excited to get back to Wargroove!

I made a new thread on it too, but the commander sounds cool. The groove sounds very versatile (instakilling Giants or Trebs, or just knocking them into other enemies for AoE damage)

Probably not intended, but rifleman GIF is pretty silly with mountain-piercing bullets (right after the talk about forest protection)! Will be interesting to see how they change the meta.

Another unit or commander being teased. They have been revealing these things one day after teasing them. My bet is on a commender that's two people.

omg a witch and ragna baby! So down for some witchy goodness!

Also, spearmen nerf is probably needed (for now) as a lot of people cashed out after that initial check. I want to return to Wargroove, but I just started grad school and there are so many amazing games that came out this year and are still on the horizon. Wargroove definitely in my top 3 for GOTY though.

Agreed, WarGroove is up there for me in terms of GotY, but I would probably say in top 5 for me.

Treb cost increase is something also needed, and I think the riflemen will be good for dealing with Spearmen.

The new CO was revealed yesterday, and its a set of twins! The cool thing about these guys is you can choose between two separate grooves, although they both share one groove meter.

https://wargroove.com/twin-peek/

Yes, I made a thread about it yesterday but unfortunately I think it got buried as there were no replies. Looking forward to them though! The fact that the heal can affect enemies and the fire can affect allies sounds interesting.
