I don’t think I’ve seen the devs officially say the menu is going to be changed much, if at all. They do have plans to rework the way matchmaking/game ports work, and have things like linking the condos to the lobby on their to-do list, but even if they do have plans to change/limit the menu, I’m not sure if I’d be in agreement.
I don’t mean to say the obvious thing that plenty of other people have said many times before, but the continued integration and connection of Tower Unite’s various gameplay options shouldn’t come at the cost of convenience. Taking away the menu/its abilities forces players down a railroaded path to play games or do whatever, instead of them being able to pop in quickly and easily.
The additional options for play should be smoothly integrated, and equal to any other way of playing. If somebody just wants to hop on and get in their condo, or play a game, they should be able to do that, the plaza should just be a natural extension of gameplay, seamlessly connected to both condos and game worlds.
Obviously we aren’t there yet, but the scoreboard looks promising, and the devs have clear intent to pursue this integration. I’ve seen a few people taking it this way, but this doesn’t (And shouldn’t) mean the removal/stripping of the main menu.
