It's always been this way, dude.

The unlockable items thing is to prevent you from jumping headlong into a ranked game with a new character that you've never even played once. They want you to actually get some basic knowledge for the character before you play them in a pvp match.

Besides, you don't even need to play them for that many matches before you get all their items.


I will agree the killing spree being locked is stupid, though.

Hi! Welcome to my new restaurant! Our menu is very complex. So much so in fact, that someone of your limited capability is going to need to frequent my establishment at least 3 -5 times until we "allow" you to order off the entire menu.


Did you... just compare a MOBA to a restaraunt...

They can't tutorial you on every character, and oftentimes new players are not going to know what to choose out of those upgrades. Like edd said as well, you get them really quickly and you can branch out from there.

Yes.


They'll sit in the base for a good 10s sometimes just trying to decide what to buy, because they don't know. They'll basically look at everything and read it; introducing things slowly over time makes this spaced out as to get you used to them first is all.

you used to be able to play another naut to unlock upgrades for other nauts. Its just a waste of time having to do bot matchs before ranked to get all the upgrades especially since bot matchs give hardly any xp if you win too fast and all upgrades are very necessary.

I'm indifferent, tbh. The leveling alone provides enough sense of progression for me, without actually unlocking upgrades. But you get all the upgrades in two, sometimes just one online match. That's less than nothing.

I was overwhelmed with all the upgrades when I started Awesomenauts. Whenever I wanted to try a new naut I had to spend 1 or 2 matches versus bots so that I really have time to figure out what upgrade does what.

Now I'm just watching replays and inspiring myself from other builds, until I start to mess around with my own decisions.

Items were unlocked on old 'nauts because the theory was that most players already had the items unlocked. New Frog having all her items was a bug as stated by Ronimo.

Seriously, it takes like 5 bot matches to unlock all the items. It's not a bad idea to use those bot matches to try to learn the bare basics of a 'naut, which to me seems like the intention.
