A few days ago on our forums, I put forth a set of ideas for how to improve the battle system in Allacrost. Usually I don't highlight forum discussions on the main site, but this is a rather important one for us to receive feedback on. The outcome of this dialogue could very well greatly influence the direction we take for our battle system in the future. If you'd like to add your own thoughts, comments, and ideas, we'd gladly welcome them. The link to the forum thread is below. Its a long read, so prepare yourself.
Forum thread: Making battles more player-active
It is likely that our next development release will include some changes to the battle system based on this thread so that we can receive additional feedback after people have actually experienced these concepts instead of just read about them. So be on the lookout for that.
