hey guys this is about as loud as it'll get there's a massive battle here this is the opening of singularity ashes of the singularity actually see a bunch of dreadknots here a bunch of cruisers bunch of small units and this is the scale the game is going to be in so if you really enjoy uh you know schemes like supreme commander then this game is probably gonna be for you if this looks cool so it's as a promotional video for Star doc and this is angry Joe and Joe
00:32
we're gonna show off this game to you if it is something that you might be interested in playing yeah it's forty four dollars on Steam right now and if you're a fan and I've actually already played a bunch of it so it's it's pretty good in my opinion it's really really fucking hard it's super frustrating but it's the good kind of hardware it's like ah damn it and I played seven times now eight times
01:03
against normal AI and me and Ella are getting our asses killed and and were you know alright players but what it's doing to us is it's making us wanna play it even more and more and more okay so we're going to try to jump into a private match here and bite down okay I'm sick and tired of losing this is like our eighth time the AI is so strong so aggressive and that's a good thing I'm so tired of games that have push over a idea here is not a pushover
01:35
normally I it's crazy acts like a human being so I couldn't even imagine what challenging tough and painful and insane is these AIS have to be cheating honestly and I'm so scared to even click any of these at this point after playing this game so normal AI here we go angry Joe Delos veterans of RTS is and will steal your goods we're going to actually turn off victory points because we keep getting on when when victory points are on the a is so aggressive they send
02:07
waves after waves after you they're so mad that you take any resource points and they attack your resource points it's it's really cool it's fascinating it's fun it is intense but holy shit we want to win a game for you so for the video this is like the 8th recording so I'm going to turn off victory points and what that's going to do is what we've found is the AI gets a little more turtley it's like nearly impossible to destroy their base so we're gonna go in there with a lot of dreadknots and excuse me if i'm coughing
02:38
and sound a little sick I've been under the weather and just playing games and hopefully I'll get better soon and let's do this I swear to god this is the last time and if we lose this guy's at the end of the video our outro is just going to be us losing and let's crying ok so let's see what we can pull off here we're going to do a highlights video we're going to go through this with you and we're going to talk about strategy and shit that we've encountered through our previous 7 times because I may or
03:08
may not show you scenes of those ok so obviously you start hearing a pretty standard RTS fashion it doesn't really break the mold or provide anything completely outside of the box you want to right away get your workers here called engineers to start harvesting your resources and start to build more workers there are two resources in the game metal and radioactives and it's a streaming economy which means basically
03:41
you can only store a certain amount and basically you always want to be building building building building building so that you can not waste resources because at the end of the game you're going to see how many resources you generated and spent and how many were wasted ok second engineer coming out now throw that through list going it's got a little visual representation of your overall military and economic strength though as me and del have found it kind of seems a little wonky
04:13
I mean AI was out there was a time where I had like 70 bombers and a huge army and it was like you're the worst you get out of it you got nothing yeah so I'm gonna go and right away I'm build to factories here it's really important to act fast at least in the victory point match at the victory point match at the top of your screen you're going to see something called trinium and there's two Turanian points on the map but because we turn that off this is going to be a little bit easier
04:45
and honestly we didn't see all the all the crazy waves coming at us that we usually see and honestly that's a more fun mode but I really want to show you guys that's winning actually gotta look good for the stream yeah well video in this case alright so I'm gonna build a bunch of brutes but as we found out what have you found about the brutes and the archers well first off what about the Hermes what is the Hermes the scout the radar it's good for scouting where the hell like your shit
05:16
is at the beginning of the map but other than that it just explodes it's really good at exploding now notice right before Dell tells you about the different unit types is you can actually take the engineers and have them help the factories who are also building so you're sort of building double-time here and that that'll jump you that's why Dell jumped all the way up there because he's probably using his engineers to crank out his military a lot faster than normal right now yeah okay tons of
05:46
Engineers so the strategy we were using at first is spamming brutes and then we noticed that brutes take a long time to kill I love the particle effects in this game it's really really awesome but these little green lasers are weak as hell what really kills the enemy are these archers over here with their missiles these these things right here but BAM look a band so that things will go a lot quicker if you're spamming archers you should use brutes as more
06:15
damage soak yeah they're good frontline they do no damage there yeah so I'm going to take this group over here once you've once you sort of clear the area you have to capture that and you'll notice these little animations these little sperm things helping to capture the area and for your factories you want to pick the waypoints upon which little spot and I could take my
06:48
guys and start building some radioactive so you're capturing this area this Green Line will fill and we'll be good to go I feel pretty confident that we're gonna win this one since the AI seems to be a little less aggressive on these they concentrate a little more on turtling but guys man you really should see the AI and victory point with the duranium it's crazy yeah it is it's if if I didn't have you know such a deadline I mean I got to
07:25
take off tomorrow then we would be playing till wee hours of the morning that's how addictive it is to try to beat this damn AI on normal and then once I beat it on normal I kind of want to go one level above I can't tell if they're cheating yet guys so no don't ask me is the AI cheating in order to get that I don't know but I feel like I'm a smart enough guy good enough it's strategy that even if the AI cheats a
07:56
lot of games do that a lot of strategy games anyway that I can overcome it so I got a lot of brutes now I'm going to reset the waypoints and start spamming archers now that I've got a nice wave of brutes too to get in front it that's what I like about this game is the massive scale there's tons and tons of units on the screen and that's pretty sweet okay it's time to build quantum
08:27
relay the quantum relay is going to give us our third resource type which is right here in the top right hand corner called quanta and you use that to increase your logistics right now I can only have 100 logistic unit points like a press that and now I get 200 I might want to drop by 50 but you also use quanta to upgrade stuff like how much metal you can store how much radioactive you can store upgrading your units health its radar range their weapon
08:59
damage and all that stuff really helps out this dudes okay so building the quanta thing right there we could use another engineer or two so every one of these resource points is you see there if we open up the strategic map its kind of connected via these these nodes and you want to make sure that they're they're all interconnected here and then
09:28
if you capture the main point then you can get well first this is going to automatically generate resources for you but if you go ahead and actually put the metal extractors or the radioactive extractors and it's going to come out faster until one of these guys to go and do that and these guys gonna do that so at least on this map we found that this is a good choke point here in order to start building up defenses and we'll spread out a little bit more just so
10:02
that we could capture more metal and radioactive points but they won't be under our turret protection which we're fixing the film fuck yeah turns now that if you're wondering that if that's the AI that's not actually the III those were rogue units that sort of hover around the resources and protect them sort of like NPCs is that your fighter no okay knowing that we better
10:39
start building our armories to give us our Cruiser so we can start building some anti-air because we've read seems to be focusing on on air and I've got nothing that shoots air right now so this guy's got free shots at us go to the next resource point I think they can handle that all right Apollo's are going to be our anti-air and it's always a
11:11
good idea any type of building that you build to build two of them that creates units so you could double your resource generation or your unit production here's a small army this is definitely the AI made short work of them though I love the anti airs I love these little red lasers and the lasers on them and and it looks so cool when they start firing their flak cannons in their their anti-air is it's so sick looking it's
11:50
awesome so sure build some Zeus's frontline units aah shit another enemy force red and this is the AIC they do not mess around I have a force with medics combined-arms their units have shields our units do not of course we have a lot more armor than them aah they're doing a two-pronged attack both red and green are attacking me at the same time do you see this shit this is
12:23
fucking crazy man and these these little drones right here are the bane of my existence I fucking hate them and that's what I'm gonna bring these guys in here for these Artemis's we dealt with this shit before we are not gonna deal with this shit again boom look at all that target those drills that flag bump up up up up fuck yeah they did not expect me to have all that flak bump up above god
12:56
they're particle effects of this game are so fucking cool and guys this game actually utilizes DirectX 12 but you have to have Windows 10 in order to use it I'm actually on Windows 8.1 so I'm not you utilizing the full beauty of the game unfortunately they are not making this easy look at this guy's another red force we're going to pull back I'm off to go find more fucking radioactives because I have no
13:27
idea where they are it's a nice little force so you chose to be the the second faction in the game huh yeah I wanted to see what they played like uh the one thing I noticed with them is their units appear to do everything they literally have units that say they're good at everything like for example they're their fighter craft has just called the Dominator and it just says it's good at both I'm facing a main force right now here we go you into these big battles and this is
13:59
not gonna look good for me I'm gonna back up just slightly I can't handle this I need my defenses to kick in I might need some help holy shit as soon as I put up that sensor array we got to see into the fog of war the red area actually represents enemy units so it's kind of cool that you can peek into the fog of war shit Dell has showed up with a few bombers
14:32
they kill all my bombers this is not good Colonel why they're concentrating on me they they always attack me they're on me right now they're blowing up my defenses I just took out a another wave your base defenses look cool gotta you now ladies look great awesome they have so many artillery ships just peppering this shit what is this pulsating thing oh that's the shield restore it heals
15:09
everything in an area that's fucking sweet yeah where is the drones here like one thing at a time this thing Aylee heals your entire base it looks like I go faster fuck dude come on army I am busy reveling over here that did kill my engineers I'm gonna get all available engineers you could select this button to select all your idol engineers I'm gonna have them all work on this red dot
15:39
we barely survived that one all they wanted one of these two resource points here and here I'll let them have that for right now but we really should have done is expanded out to here and grab this stuff let they'll have that I'll grab this and this and make the fight here ah Dai oh my god it's so powerful what the hell ever tried not already I'm their limit over
16:17
I'm getting one dread not my try knots coming up just hanging on for dear life until we can launch this fucking thing all right here we go let's rebuild these smarty systems tried not deployed to get the sensor back capture this point take the point from red as well say fuck yo shit this is ours can you capture the Green Point right above you uh yeah take that that army that you've
16:54
got we're going to take this we're going to kick them the hell out of our territory and reestablish the battle lines I see the red coming I see you okay now the Dreadnought will level up and they'll get certain upgrades this has a self-sealing hole it slowly makes repairs to the hole which we're gonna do automatically he'll aren't reading up third Dredd not complete that's good
17:25
building fourth and fifth fuck drone incursion retreat your units the drones that you're powerful oh yeah yeah this game's gonna kill me I needed Apollo's the one thing my one weakness and the I I exploited it amazing they just obliterated my engineers and all my defenses look at all these tiny little drones both red and green said
18:00
fuck your shit this is ours I am so impressed with the AI in this game guy I'm gonna build nothing but fucking Artemis's or Polo's now get fucking wrecked I love the way they target I got two more on it away come on bring that shit bring it both my Hyperion's have
18:33
levelled up healing drones self-replenishing swarm of drones spamming drone Swim's it's like complete bullshit yeah there's no way they can afford that it's it's fucking ridiculous no he's got plenty of they got plenty of quanta they're there they're building up their quanta but I got him I got him give me a crown Asst give me a Cronus dreadknot and I'll
19:07
be good we got to catch them off guard you've got to make moves when they're making moves on me push for that Green Point a green point to the to the right of your face I'm building smaller units right now all my dudes get wiped out by a transform except for my dreadnoughts I fell I fell a ton of Apollo's I've got like ten Apollo's now and yeah building tons of interior and I'm not having to worry about him anymore
19:43
are you able to make a push yeah I'm going to right now I have five six straight nuts and I feel like they don't fuck with you as much as they fuck with me I'm getting attacked a shitload I just are you getting attacked from both sides yeah okay I'm just gonna keep the read read nuts when they first attacked me cuz I rushed him yeah these guys are good I don't like how guys don't automatically attack when they're in an army you have to tell them to attack Luber they just kind of stand there and die the army system in my opinion needs
20:15
a little bit of work no I'm looking at the Hyperion army the dread-nots leads an army because if you look at this screen this Hyperion army has two Apollo's as soon as I leave the Hyperion army has Apollo and Zeus yeah I know they're just sending waves at us you know TRADOC turn on internal bellow you got a ton of dreadknots man you need to make a push for that kid in a moment
20:51
I left they attacked my base and killed all my defenses okay I guess we need to coordinate our push I'm gonna push at the same time you push go all right here we go coming into the recess guy fuck you holy chef these kinds of let's drop the shit loader drones on us again fuck you and your drone them they gotta be cheating they have unlimited fucking quanta that's insane because it goes up in cost
21:33
every time they use it their drone swarm has to be at like 1200 or something by now I'm not sure how many times they've used it I've had it dropped on me five times ah they've got all my fuckin guy retreat sons of bitches I'm using the instant repair ability to soak all this damage all my horses are down except the dreadknots I need an T here all right cord go over there and help those buddy
22:19
three dude three people spread nuts out in there it's not gonna make it I'm gonna lose a Cronus that's good for you get there or thousand can't you go any faster Apollo's I got that red fuck all these drones there we go put some fire in them fuck yeah fuck yeah fuck yeah fuck you that's right bitches look what
23:04
yeah we saved him awesome at 1715 hit point he dropped a seventh drone swarm on me and it's killed three of my dreadknots now because he's just got unlimited drone power for dreadknots down another drone sore paw dreadknots down that's great is this what's left of new to dreadknots
23:38
yeah i heard seven dreadknots seven dreadknots and all these jobs dropping drones on them over and over and over and over and over and over so did you bring anti airs yes tons and they just got wiped up like almost instantly okay but drugs you just threw so many drugs I think I could aw shit I'm under attack more dreadnoughts reestablish the better the picture level four under three dreadknots in my face I'm
24:17
going down drone swarm over here - holy fuck that okay the drone storm is definitely broken there's no way you hit that many drones forms yeah I think they just have unlimited fucking Quantic or they don't have this scaling yeah no no they're quanta is they're probably just generating a fuck ton of quanta but there's the scaling doesn't go up for the computer and that needs to be fixed immediately yeah it's it's insane okay so let's go
24:50
to four five six six dreadknots okay so it looks like we're gonna lose this guys I'm gonna go in with six dreadknots and what the fuck is that a Virg me Joe it's like some sort of fairy cloud quantum jammer fucking quantum jammer fuck this fucked every charger fuck this other recharger these Chronos is do just blow
25:28
everything up in the base in one shot that's so awesome he keeps popping these these purple things I don't know go in today so I do thank you have any dry skin is okay that shit I just missed it but I saw a ton of fucking there were like several hundred swarms drones in my base is great okay so we're going to go and with four five six six dreadknots to try to take out red and in honor of dell virtru will
26:07
avenge you okay and so if you made a path down there was that their main base that you're attacking on green here comes the dread-nots yeah i didn't get I didn't even get to the big fish out of the Australians on level 4 a level 4 a level 3 let's go let's go heeling drones are going to be fueling drones I think I just lost one they drop something on us I'm down to five six yeah fuck you Oh booted me that all you
26:57
got so you fucked green up because he has not been able to recover I got to his base and he killed my army and like I had ok so I pushed through he wasn't even using units to kill me he just dropped drone swarm after drone swarm onto my ab dreadknots and all seven of them just disintegrated and they had like twenty year time I lost all my Apollo's and none of my dreadknots have any anti-air and that's going to be a problem because now they
27:27
have bombers hitting me I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to oh my god they have nothing but over mines the drew over mines and drone hives it looked cool selector what all those drones are on my dreadknots Wow they're using so many abilities I've not seen these things before get all these drugs I think the issue is that the drones
28:11
have way too much HP Sapa transitive HP and we already pinpointed the issue and my guys are holding out pretty well I think we might be able to AH there goes one Cronus second Cronus is going down but our Hyperion's are hanging in there Hyperion's my favorite we blew him up second Cronus is going down to 2,000 hit points left he is smoking is on fire
28:51
flames everywhere here comes yet another army get more drones but see here's the thing and you know this that they have what's called a drone high so there are units that actually produces drones oh yeah no I was actually watching up his words I'm gonna be over and over cuz I was killing their drone eyes immediately and they were just dropping the special ability on me like every twenty seconds or something play on play on impossible within one
29:29
second they just start dropping drugs on you cross your face I would let just like boo look at all these drugs shooting me is insane Oh God oh my drones have died but I'm not going out without an instant repair ah ah didn't hit it in time was that their
30:14
main base though I think that that a little further up would have been their main base yeah I didn't get to their main base either with seven dread-nots I just got annihilated by drones Wow holy shit um okay I am going to hit the surrender button defeat let's look at this um alright military spending me and del RIF dwarfed by Wade and Baker uh
30:48
friendly military lost enemy military destroyed we were just fucking obliterating their military but it didn't matter because their resources were just through the roof we were just throwing shit at us I wasn't it felt like I was never dying from their units it just felt like I was dying from their abilities over and over again during fights so if you look here at the quanta invested uh me and delyth combined only had 1500 quanta invested
31:20
while the enemy had far far more look at that couldn't it could they not launch that many drones with that not with the increasing multiplier on things like when I was trying to do insurgencies it was going up like a hundred every time I used it and so there was a point where it was like 750 and I had like 30 quanta generators and it still wasn't enough to be able to spam it like they were I only built like one or two quantities the whole time yeah I went in one match we played I sat and built like as many as I
31:52
could feel just to see how fast it went up and it still wasn't enough to spam things okay guys so that was ashes of the singularity and we we now tried 9 9 times 9 or 10 times to try to beat the normal AI and we're getting our asses kicked on on VP holding and on VP holding and we're pretty good at these RTS is so honestly in my opinion I think they need to rebalance some of the
32:20
stuff drone incursions by the what is the faction faction basically exhibit you know I don't think the AI is obeying the same rules that the player has to obey that every time you use one of these offensive abilities the price is going up in quantum yep like incursions and stuff we were going up in cost and I think that the humans need a little bit more effective anti-air the dread-nots
32:55
need a tiny bit of anti-air or you need to make a fourth Dredd not that have complete anti-air abilities basically an anti-air Dredd not so with then so when they pop those you know drone incursions your Dredd not just laughs and shrugs it off and oh my god it would look so fucking cool they do the anti-air units in this game are the coolest fucking thing like they look amazing there it's like those Old World War two videos you see with all the tracers going in the
33:26
air at night those things have like 12 guns on them to just go fucking nuts all over the place that they're so cool so I had a ton of fun with ashes of singularity even though I feel like the AI needs some tweaks to it it definitely needs a patch what do you think of I think yeah yeah there definitely something going on with it um at least they're not fucking pushovers what's happening right now is it's been way too hard and I'm thinking that it has to do with anti-air and drone incursions oh
33:57
yeah for sure um the game is beautiful though and the combat looks amazing yo yeah it's just overwhelmingly difficult right now and unnormal and there's four difficulties ahead of this or whatever so I can't even begin to imagine how impossible it is at like higher difficulty stuff yeah there's sorts of things for levels above this one but the single-player campaign is a lot easier than this the AI sort of follow some scripts and it does get invented from time to time so if you don't if your feel to don't feel
34:29
too intimidated and then obviously playing versus player straight-up you're probably not going to run into this because the players have to pay an increasing cost in quanta every time they're using those drone incursions so you're probably not going to run into that but yeah so that is ashes of the singularity guys thank you very much for watching the video and we will see you on the next angry Joe show
