If you have any general/basic queries about the game, ask it here.
Is there a ballpark estimate of when the Beta will go live?
We are looking at Mid-December for Early Access Beta. It will be available on Steam.
Looking forward to it, this looks like it'll be pretty sweet
What faction do you think will be the easiest to start as? I'm curious to how difficult the learning curve will be.
What kind of multiplayer will be available when the game is launched?
Soooooo looking forward to the beta! The demo at PAX was awesome!!
Sol Imperial Worlds (Humans) -- The easiest to play
Genari Star Empire -- Moderately difficult, but much more rewarding if you're skillful
Ma'Alaketh Confederation -- Easy/Moderate
The Hive (upon its eventual adoption to the game) -- Difficult, but definitely most interesting
The multiplayer is purely MMO-style, eg. hundreds of players fighting for their faction. It can be any combination of 1v1, 2v2, 2v1, 3v3, 3v1, 4v5 , 8v2 etc... with the homeworlds having the max sized battlemaps of up to 20v20. Though when other factions come in, it could theoretically be three or four factions fighting for the same region.
There will be instanced battle royales and tournaments however, that do not affect one's position in the mmo universe (other than xp and medal bonuses)
What will the policy be on Multi-Accounting? I can see many people taking advantage and putting people in 2v1 or 3v1 situations by controlling multiple accounts at the same time.
Multi-account users who try to beef their main avatar up will always be a problem in any turn-based strategy ladder system. Running the Heroes of Might and Magic tournament for a dozen years, I would see that a lot. Using a player's IP and cross-referencing it is a first step, then keeping track of players who accelerate quickly -- along with the fact that all win/losses are logged with who played whom. These will be methods to keep track of potential abusers.
Soooooo... No alts then?
Hey, thanks! I'll probably end up trying out the Ma'Alaketh Confederation! I really like the way that their ships look!
Not on the same server, but when the member base grows, another server starts up.
Awesome! Thanks for letting me know! Also can I directly connect with specific people, I really was hoping that I could play with my friends.
Yes, there is a chat system where you not only communicate with friends (and have a friends list) but also a clan system for a more intimate group.
Is the game being released on steam? What platform is it being built on?
Yes, it will have steam early access, the game is built on the Unity engine.
Hi vesuvius, I see that the first six chapters of the novel are done. When will that be released, or are you going to wait until all the chapters are complete first?
looking good Hooman!
