Dude, this song is so beast.
I feel like I could micro to these soundtracks. They'll work fine.
But it feels like Keeping the Peace is too... heavy and fast paced. for a Zoltan fight.
They never really were a "threat" essentially to a player. They had sub-par shielding and weaponry, once their overshield was down they were dead. Every fight felt slow and boring, seeming like small, free piles of scrap to me.
Of course, it could be my boarder mentality.
So I propose one of two things:
1. Beef up Zoltans. These dudes want to protect their borders, and they mean freaking BUSINESS. These guys shouldn't have to have these shitty little pussy shields around their ships which to me are made of...
Cat Shit and Paper
-Vechs, Describing the Hellcat's Armor from World of Tanks
they should be able to kick your ass any day of the week, and the shield just puts the icing on the cake.
2. Move the soundtrack to another race.
And yes, Pace of Battle is too dissonant. I would expect that out of a Lanius or Crystal area, mainly due to the fact I for some reason I associate crystal and metal with dissonance.
Other than that, the music's good!
Back from the dead. After a two year hiatus.
