At this point it’s not clear where the PP stands in the story. We know it’s some historical force, but since we cannot make our own soldiers, we don’t have own research and so on, it is not a faction.
It is not a diplomatic force either as we have no tools for diplomacy other than “attack or don’t attack” and “steal research”.
I feel like there should be more to Phoenix Point. In Q&A video, you said customization is unimportant compared to other things. I feel that we at least need an option to uniform soldiers under PP flag so they don’t look that generic.
The identity of PP is a long term issue which many players point out. I think identifying yourself with the main hero of the game is an important aspect of UX and explaining who we actually are is important too. Please, can you do something about this? Can you explain to us in the game, whether we are an old faction, rogue faction (hence we need own research and soldiers) or some diplomatic force which puts other factions together to fight an issue? I don’t offer solutions, I want devs to make them on their game.
