Honestly I'm not sure how Ashes is an evolution of Supreme Commander, it is a good game, and one I love, but it feels like a step backwards in most regards to me.
It lacks a Commander unit.
It lacks multiple tiers of Engineers.
and it lacks the expanding battle fields of Supreme Commander.
What it does do well, is the ability to build units directly to an army once you get second and third tier units. (Cruisers and dreads,) But I wish there were More of those dreads, or they had the level cap removed. Juggernauts were cool, in that they had no level cap, but also lacked abilities, so It doesn't feel like those levels DO anything.
