Game description

I moved the game description from the main page to here. It's still transcluded to the main page so any changes here are reflected on the main page. So watch out for the <onlyinclude></onlyinclude> tags or you'll mess up the main page! - BenWo (talk) 12:57, 16 May 2014 (CEST)

link potholes & sinkholes

Many of the links here that are displayed by the front page are comparable to what [tvtropes.org] calls "potholes" and are really borderline sinkholes, by the same definition source. In other words, the links don't seem to correspond to the pages they link to. Almost all of them are potholes, and four of them, by my count, are sinkholes. Specifically, "ores" "protect your factory", and "yourself" might be considered sinkholes.

1. The first one should link to a page that includes both iron ore and copper ore (not just iron ore), and possibly coal, although that one might be best linked separately.
2. The second one, which links to walls, should instead link to a page that includes all defensive structures.
3. The last one, which links to modular armor, should probably link to a page that includes armor, weapons, capsules, and anything else the player might use to defend themselves (or actively attack enemies) if they don't have their base to do it for them. An example might be if you were going to destroy some spawners.
note: The second one and last one might be worth combining into one page that includes anything and everything that kills enemies or protects the player or his structures.

TL;DR the links are too confusing and should be fixed.--Twisted Code (talk) 12:42, 7 June 2015 (CEST)

If it should be fixes, why don't you just change it? Ssilk (talk) 17:45, 8 June 2015 (CEST)
