Tutorial felt fast

The jump from the tutorial to the bots intro games was a little much in terms of new information. In the tutorial if gave good explanations about how hero and advanced units work and general mechanics that which I was comfortable with when going into the bots intro game.

But in terms of base management and the principal around it I felt a little lost at first. The warping wasn't different since I played Starcraft 2 but it took a while to figure things out and having only three warp in location made the army feel slow in terms of reinforcements. Things like I don't really know what resources I'm picking up, where is this particular resource on the map. Or the where to do the research. How to upgrade my hero.

I feel like there could be a middle ground between the Tutorial and the bots intro to help explain upgrades, resources, base management and such since the leap makes the bots intro overwhelming for a majority of the game.

    I'll second this. Especially because once the Titan was warped in it went to town and finished the tutorial without me having to do anything. I only had the very basics down of what to do once I played a "real" game, and almost no clue as to how the neutral camp functioned.

    These are great points! We definitely want to make it easy and fun to learn Atlas. While we won't have anything in time for TW4, I definitely want to get camps, resources, research, and upgrades all covered. I think you also hit on something important that the tutorial just feels to fast, better pacing will hopefully help make all the new info "stick"

    I also thought the tutorial was not enough. I play LoL and have played a lot of AoE2 in the past, and I felt like I was more reliant on my past knowledge rather than what I learned in the tutorial. The intro bots were pretty easy to get past, but I didn't know how important it is to upgrade myself or whether items are useful at all. So when I went into a bot game I barely got by with just spawning titans. Along with what the administrator said about getting camps, resources, research, and upgrades covered, I think how to play against titans should also be added. Maybe another tutorial where there are scenarios that you will face in a typical game so you can be prepared for regular bots and eventually pvp.
