    Hi, I'm new here and was hoping on getting my hands on the Game later today (already 6th here in Germany).

    Since I've been playing MMO-RPG (starting with Tibia in the mid/late 90s), TBS (I guess starting with Pokemon / Final Fantasy) and pretty much everything with Spaceships (since X-Wing Alliance), I suppose I'm almost the perfect example of the target audience. :p

    I think I already got some suggestions / fixes, but I'd rather try the latest version of the Game rather than making them based on pictures/videos/posts that may be based on older versions.

    I hope asking for it isn't frowned upon, but... could I get a key/invite to make use of the 2(?) days delay? :rolleyes:

    Fleet, Vice, Rear Admiral and Commodore Legacy Medals = all wiped for open beta/live, yes?

    I'm guessing only the Bug Hunter one will carry over ..? If that's not the case, I'll get to work on earning 200k XP in the next 2 days for FA lol...

    Yes, only the bug hunter carries over from the internal beta. I have to manually add it to players, so I have not done that yet -- as the accounts wipe on launch, I will be adding them when players who were beta testers re-add their accounts to spacewars.

    Starting launch however, all server endings will carry over as legacy.

    I only ever managed to actually achieve Sol victory/ending cinematic during early tests. I remember several tests of running the gauntlet to power and finally crashing Gen Homeworld (maybe Sol too) only to find out that the victory sequence and server end/auto-restart wasn't working properly :p

    I was SOOOOO close to a Gen victory though (out of the 2 or 3 times I played Gen), talking 1 more day instead of screwing around showing what a lockout blockade could do.... lol Had the ship and the officers and everything to do it, but I had been goofing around doing other things and testing and letting the galaxy persist for quite awhile, then it was reset right before I was going to make the final attack. I think I was ready to down Sol homeworld in about 2 weeks after that test started :p And to think it took me a month just to break the defense line this time!

    Is that about what you had hoped for? Time-wise.

    If I had a bunch of people in comms, 10 or so, who all had a handle on the game and could follow a plan, I'm pretty sure we could down a defense platform in under a week. That probably won't happen until the 2nd galaxy after open beta starts.

    So we got approval for launch now from Steam... finally. But the Dev team has gone sleepytime right now so I can't reach them. Will tell you guys if the server opens up Thursday, or still planned for Friday. I do want the tutorial bug fixed though, before launch.

    Why missing the launch date twice? :p

    Stick with announced date, imo.

    Might as well stick with Friday. Extra day to do some ironing.

    Stick with Friday. Fewer schedule changes appears more professional in my opinion.

    All set for Friday; European players should see access Friday evening, US players Friday afternoon!

    This is exciting. Even while laying down sick I think about some of the things we will get to do over time. :D

    It is 7:45am EST, I checked the upcoming space wars page for a release time, steam says 15 hours, which puts this at 9-10 pm EST - hope that is wrong.

    Just double checking, the beta instructions said we couldn't share screenshots or what not, can we do so now?
    (I expect the answer is yes, since its now publicly available, but its better to be sure!)

    Pretty sure you can share any screenshots/videos, tell/invite anyone, or stream to your heart's content
