So went though the Imperial campaign, and enjoyed it mostly (that timer and by the time I was near the end, I was done with the battles) so tried out both the Necron and the new Chaos campaign, but I'm hitting mini walls in those.
Necrons I'm just finding to be boring as heck to play. Each fleet is extremely similar, and the repetitive grind that I disliked about the Imperial campaign is hitting me much sooner in this campaign. Either I'm not grasping the different strategies of the Necrons or I'm going to be bored out of my mind playing them all the way through their campaign.
Chaos I'm running on a shoestring budget and am not grasping how they're supposed to progress. I know in the first game you either had the disco build with all the lances or all the carriers, but getting the funding to build these fleets (and progressing enough to be able to truly spam a ship) seems like a distant goal, while still dealing with the invasion spam.
