PLEASE RESTORE FAVOR ITEMS. They are now useless. Having to purchase them every time means we only get to use them every 2-4 games or so, and those are the cheap ones. If you totally dominate a game you get what, 200 points? So you would have to do this four times to use the Blood of the Fallen?! And that is if you are really good. In an even game, most players are leaving with around 100 ponits are so which is not even enough to use the Charm of Life every game. V1.1 basically took favor items out of play, which is really stupid. One of the great things about DemiGod was that there was some reward for playing a lot, but not enough that new players had no hope. The system worked. This is a classic case of IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT! Now, some of the items themselves might need to be recosted, and the General-specific items need some help, but the solution was not to take away the whole system, it was to fix these specific problems. If you want to make them harder to obtain, make them cost more, but as the system stands now, it rewards players who play tons of easy games against the AI to get enough points to buy the best items and gain an advantage over normal players who don't have time for that crap. And if some people's accounts are not retaining points, then obviously that needs to be fixed, the solution is not to break everyone else's. This seems so obvious to me I kinda can't believe I have to write this.
Also, (and I've seen this on other posts already) PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me see my minions HPs!!!! Just a stack on the side where I can see how many units are actually under my control and of what kind and how fast they are dying. This is one of the major things handicapping Generals right now, the inability to know if your army is at full strength in a melee, so you either assume it is, only to find out too late that it isn't, or you waste time summoning units that you don't have room for or dropping extra banners just to be safe, all while the Beast is wailing on you. Being able to see allies would also really be useful, especially for Oak, Sedna and the Queen.
Lastly, and this might just be the realist in me, but PLEASE, PLEASE make equipment slots dedicated. I know it is just a game, but Torch Bearers running around with 5 caps on is just dumb. You should be able to wear one armor, one set of boots, one set of gauntlets and one helm. There could be two slots for trinkets and artifacts after that, or even three if it seemed necessary, but, I mean, c'mon, seriously did no one think that it seemed silly to have 5 suits of armor on a character? I know some players will complain because it will effect some beloved combos, but it effects everyone equally and makes the game a lot more "realistic" (I use that term loosely, since, yes, it is a game about semi-divine characters fighting in space and such.)
