    Hive first choice, Genari second.

    Are the Ma'Alaketh the snipers of the game?

    It sounds like some of their ships will most definitely be sniper-types, but I'm sure they'll have a decent spread.

    Side note, I can't believe how even this poll has been the entire time it's been running. Hopefully that translates to pretty even sides, number-wise.

    One big difference SPiEkY, on the poll you can vote for all of the races, should you choose, but once you are in the game, you can't play more than one faction at a time. so when people are forced to pick one OR the other, the results may be quite different.

    Personally I like the idea of going Sol for my first play, Genari for my second. Then I'll probably try Genari again, but using more 'Sol' type tactics, finish off with a Sol play using Genari type tactics. That will give me a nice, even base to determine which I like the most, and I'll stick to that until the next playable race is introduced. I think I will always have a soft spot for my initial Sol play through and the 'full' Genari though, So I will probably gravitate between those two most of the time.

    But I also voted for The other two races, as I am intrigued as to how they would play like.

    The malaketh ships look like long sniper rifles. I wonder if they are going to be camping types too.

    I'm curious as to the trade of the Ma'kaleth will have, I mean they have the strongest shields in the game at tier 5, so what is the weakness to that for balancing purposes??

    I'd think so to!

    I think those tier 5 shields you are talking about would only be for their largest ships like the battleships and dreadnoughts.

    ** Bump ** With 200+ people registered on this forum we should see twice as many votes on here! I want to see one of these factions win over another.

    I don't. Fair share is good.

    I really look forward to playing Hive. Seems like they have great potential for truly alien ship design (figures crossed for Lovecraftian inspired ships) :)

    Quite honestly, all four look interesting.

    Sol - I like the look of the ships and the defense minded philosophy of their design.
    Genari - The scrappy rabble-rousers.
    Ma'alaketh - Best looking ships of the four. Interesting back story and possibly bearers of the most interesting tech.
    Hive - The continually adaptive and regenerative nature of their ships is most intriguing.

    Right now both races I'm 50/50 on, I can't pick a preference. I had picked Genari way back when on this voting page but now I have feels for both.

    There's more Genari votes here but I see more people playing Sol.

    I'm starting to have a strong affection for Genari. I started as Sol for the longest time, but with the Genari tutorial being added I played around with their ships and I like some of the Orc-like ways they play as.

    I personally am looking forward to the Confederation for one simple reason: Those slick ship designs.

    I'm a Federation Man, so I picked the Human faction. I also like their ship designs.

    I'm torn between the Confederation and the Hive. It is pretty cool to see a fairly even split in interest for all the factions.

    I like aliens. Can't do vanilla.

    If you know what I mean.
