    It's like a timegated cell phone game except in space and on your PC.

    It started out like that, but now I've got into building outposts and using the territory around me, its starting to feel more like a shallow version of civilisation in space.

    The first day of playing is just like a browser strategy game, but by the third day of playing it opens up into a richer game.

    I mean I want to like it but when I saw how long building takes, and how you can buy things in the cash shop to reduce build time... it's literally clash of clans with a space skin.

    I'd be willing to give it a try, if it didnt have build time microtransactions.

    It has them.

    Anyone tested this, been testing it my self for a week now.

    New server will come up on Monday, they take on 2k players now per server. 20 max player alliances, and its competitive.

    Started 2 days ago on server 4. If we start a FHC alliance on server 5 i would be in.

    Seems solid for casual RTS and i am sure you can deep-dive into it also to make it fun.

    This is shit. its dull as fuck.
    there is a guy, 'Admiral' who has made some pretty crap tutorial vids, the 'community' just tells folks to watch hours and hours long videos of him being a nerd and poorly explaining.
    They then follow it up with "if you cant follow his videos then you must be dumb".

    anyway, you start off by trying to complete a set of tick box exercise tasks, to build a building, a ship, a corvette, a cargo ship, a scout, build this, that, the other, type in chat, scratch your arse, blow your nose, smile, look out the window.

    its just doing stuff as a sort of 'tutorial' but you dont know why you are doing it, you are just doing it to complete the task, to get rewards and XP to get a massive head start. but the things you did, you dont know what meaning it has, other than to give you some rewards.

    once you have set everything doing something, you migh thave 15-25mins to wait till you set something doing something else. boring. Uninstalled

    After a week of playing daily I'm really loving this game. It all starts making sense around day 4.

    It's not a game to play for a 6 hour binge - you put in 30 mins to an hour 3 - 5 times a day. I normally have another game running simultaneously.

    The PvP is fucking brilliant once it gets going

    Suggest we all play our respective servers and then in a few months jointly start a new (release) one.

    Really loving this, lots of strategy, politics, alliance warfare etc.

    There's a "premium (subscription) only but no P2W" server coming in December - anyone who is sufficiently good and has made it to endgame in another server is welcome to join my duders - we are winning our server and a few of the guys have one multiple previous servers.

    Tbh though the P2W isnt really P2W. If you spend ~$20-40 at the start of a server you are totally set for 8 weeks. I barely ever use the premium currency (which you get a load of for free since the last patch anyway), it's really not especially useful. I am top 40 on my server (out of 5000) now and I started a week late, pretty confident I could be top 20 if I'd started on time and not as a total noob.

    If you liked Travian but found it too unpolished and a bit too simple and micromanagy, this is a great game for you. If you liked the alliance politics part of Eve or the poopsock surprise attacks, likewise. If you like stomping sandcastles while smacktalking in public chat, this is also for you.

    It's a "play for 20-30 mins, 2-4 times a day" game though, with no real benefit to being online for hours at a stretch. Great to run in the background.
