Right. Before you say this game is hard, go play WC2 and WC4 on hard (like fighting against maining, the athmosphere missions or the oney without shields). THEN come back.
As for making the game more accessable.. I could think of a whole bunch of ideas on how to do that and checkpoints wouldn't even come close. Yes there are a few missions with bad pacing, but there the pacing is the problem, not missing checkpoints. The other missions are just fine.
but anyway, I think this topic has been fully discussed and as we comented repeatedly, there will be no changes in this area. So topic closed before it goes further offtopic. Thanks for your feedback, we'll take it into consideration for future projects.
