"If you can stomach the tiered progression grind of games like World of Tanks, this is a sci-fi ship-combat version that's worth a look."

Story

Three thousand years have passed since the first colonists left Earth. Now the galaxy is divided between the militant star empires and independent mercenary groups. In a remote corner of the galaxy — Sector 1337, the area of the dead — a world has been left behind. Here, the ruins of a great civilization of Aliens have recently been discovered. Huge factories and sprawling cities are falling into decay. Fragments of ships lie on the fields where massive battles were once fought. But there is not a living soul. Everything has been destroyed by a mysterious Cataclysm — a pulsing anomaly that burned out all life within this sector.

This doesn’t stop mankind, the new «owner» of the Universe. Mercenaries and adventurers have flocked to the sector to sift through the ruins and loot its abandoned artifacts, without consideration of the danger. Many have disappeared — including members of well-armed expeditions — but those who have managed to return have uncovered unprecedented riches. So looters continue to come here, to find the Aliens’ lost treasures — and to fight for them.

Abusive Admins. WARNING!!!!!

I want to give a positive review, I really do, but it feels dishonest to do so.

This game is plagued by its own development team. Unless you are a member of the Russian Master Race your problems and concerns are of no interest to them. The Devs do not want to support a non-Russian community, provide materials for the non-Russian Wiki, collect feedback from non-Russian players or even give complete patch notes to the non-Russian player base. They don't want to fix glaring issues with the game, they don't want to know about what you find fun, and they sure as hell don't want to provide a quality experience - that might get in the way of monetising you!

The core mechanics of the game are good, but used to be better. Much of the game's content is burdened by insane amounts of grind to coax money out of you, and other elements of the game are sealed behind paywalls to ensure proper Pay to Win behaviour is enforced.

Play it by all means - you can have fun providing you don't go beyond Tier 3 - but don't invest any money in it.

I played this game with a few friends of mine. We were all excited about it and even bought several of the packages ($49.99) ones.

Summary: The game has a solid foundation and could be a great arena/World of Tanks alternative. Unfortunately the developers (like several other eastern european developers) rely heavily on cash shop purchases, premium time purchases, an incredibly steep progression curve (post rank 7), and a near impossible PvE environment. Do to the difficulty, extreme progression curve and the steep cash requirement to progress or even play the game beyond rank 7, I cannot fully recommend the game.

Pros:
-Ships in space!
-Lovely graphics, awesome ship designs with personality (unlike the flying turds in Eve).
-An interesting open world element starting at rank 4. In many ways similar to Eve Online. If the developer capitalized on this and rebalanced the AI encounters found in open space, this game could have been a winner. See Cons.
-Ship role customization, although limited it does allow some degree of freedom to tailor your ship to your liking.
-Includes both PvE and PvP missions.
-The crux of the game takes place in Arena style battlegrounds or instances.

Cons:
-Steep difficulty curve in PvE missions starting at rank 4. These become near impossible without fully upgraded, fully tiered ships which can be either incredibly expensive or take an inordinate amount of time.
-Open World exploration loses its luster at around rank 6, as NPCs send you on suicidal near impossibly difficult sectors of space (which are open to PvP ganking). This relegated open world to only end-game fully upgraded (think all purple equipment) ships or gank squads.
-Cash shop solution for nearly anything. Equipment requires faction marks in order to level it to Rare (blue) status. Unfortunately it is prohibitively expensive to switch factions in order to grind their marks. Although a Cash Shop solution is offered.
-All weapons, modules, and ship equipment can be ranked up (improved) all the way to purple status using the Cash Shop gold emblems.
-PvP arenas can be hit or miss depending on whether or not your ship is fully leveled and equipped for that tier. Again, since you can do everything through the cash shop, you can easily fully gear up a ship with purples for PvP. Also, be prepared to encounter fully upgraded, cash shop ships out in open space as they suffer no repair costs when destroyed.

If I knew the developer had plans to lessen the PvE difficulty curve as well as remove the cash shop/cash requirements for switching factions, I might recomend the game. Until they do that I strongly recomend you steer clear of it. It is my understanding that this developer has no plans to do that and would rather run it into the ground.

Once upon a time -
this was a fun game where you could do space dogfighting as though there was air. The factions were pretty starkly contrasted in their attributes and special abilities on ships making for some interessting choices. It had an OK progression for a FTP game - the premium content was actually more powerful than what could be gained from grinding but it wasn't gamebreaking.

Then came the evil wiz-----a patch.
Aaaand suddenly it doesn't suffice to grind enough "standing" - now you have to grind synergy to unlock new ships that might or might not have a similar ability to the one you currently grind. Abilities got spread around more and some ships received things that are completely pointless on that hull and should've stayed where they once were. Then they switched around the weaponsystems, removing the cool ones and limiting the selection for ships even more than it was before (where at least you could find cool weaponsystems for all classes of hulls). Once you actually grinded enough synergy you hopefully have an astronomic amount of currency to actually buy that new ship as well. Did I mention volunteer secondary missions that lock the ships you select for them out for up to AN ENTIRE WEEK? Yeah - very fun gameplay element that. The premium content is basically mandatory if you ever want to get anywhere.

Now it's a shipwreck (literally) of what it could've been, heck of what it WAS.

DONT
PLAY

Its a fun/good space combat game, at least for the first few ranks, stuff is cheap level upping goes fast and the opponents aren't op yet. then the reality/moneygrabbing kicks in... I'd advice to play the first few ranks, and don't go ranking like a normal person would, instead stay in the low ranks and have fun. otherwise you'll get wooped by people who have paid.
in multiplayer you can get screwed over by teammates who don't know what they are doing.
It feels increb pay2win, I know thats a cheesy critique but thats the way it feels.
I had fun for a couple of hours, now ill delete it.

Used to be a great game but fell apart as everything dumbed down. Don't get me wrong, I loved this game with a passion, but as each update passed. It became worse. Simpler *the bad kind* and a pay to win. Its sad. But its the ultimate truth.

Do not bother.

The grind is massive. The gameplay is repetetive. Ballance is horrible. Low tiers are full of squads who have been playing this game for a long time, but come to low levels to kill new players in their fully equiped and upgraded ships.

Horrible expirience.

Awesome concept and solid gameplay
Horrible balancing and community
Fun when you aren't getting smurfed or teamstomped, but that's very rare

I had also purchased a DLC pack less than 2 weeks before a patch that made premium ships almost pointless, felt very much like bait and switch

Pay 2 win game,

The game is fun with friends, but when you must queue by yourself (because no one plays the god damn game) at higher tier you're screwed.

What's even worse is leveling ships, a horrible cancerous grind because starting with the worst modules and you'll lose most of the time (against paid ships and purple level modules/weapons), and since it's based on performance you'll get little to nothing and spend hours doing PvE instead.

There's free roam which takes hours getting place to place for a daily mission
There's PvP with leveling ships vs paid ships (not really balanced at all then since lower ships vs higher ships)
There's PvE which is the only thing worth doing, but you must wait for the "good ones" since some take forever or difficult.

And that's all there is, I never cared for this game, i only feel the developers tugging at my wallet.
If you like mindlessly grinding for hours, this is your game.

There is no controller support for Mac. And there isn't any customer support to speak of. Don't download this game if you want to use a joystick made for Mac/PC or Xbox alike, simply won't work and support will just refer you to the forums without putting a thought into whether your issue is legitimate or not.

I really love the gameplay, it's fantastic and the graphics are breathtaking. If you like using a mouse and keyboard for a simulator, download this game, because it is wonderful for that. The draw of a simulator for me is being able to use controllers to more fully immerse myself in the world. I was really hoping this would be the case for Star Conflict, but it's not.

It's a shame I have to go back and find it going to hell.
Do yourself a favor and go play something else.

My guess is the community has been forgotten, or admins are simply in an advantageous position over the actual head ups.
The game stopped being a game and now it's just like some country with a heavy civil war and dictatorship

Only thing I would add to this game at this point is a First person or In Cocpit view and a PvE mode that didnt require other persons to play with, for those long queue nights. Other than that, its a pretty enjoyable game.

Definitely worth downloading. Similar to conquest mode in Battlefield except it's in space, only better/more features and gameplay. 8.5/10 now all they need to do is let you land on planets seamlessly in real time complete with re-entry fireball effects and have MMO gameplay on the ground or a star fox style minigame, also walking around the ships would be a nice addon. But seriously, this is actually one of the best if not hands down the very best experience I have had on the Oculus DK2. It's also easy to join up with friends. The situational awareness in VR is really good, and it stays locked at 75fps hardly any lag and no judder. Very immersive, the combat is addictive. Some interesting loot and crafting materials can be salvaged and the game universe can be explored if you undock your ship from the station as opposed to entering the PVP skirmish matchmaking countdown. Not sure if it's an MMO, but it would be a really good MMO and the ship physics are fun. Very comfortable VRexperience.

First I was very happy to find this game. Its a Shooter not a Simulation.
Was telling an interested friend "wow - i can totaly personalize my ship (modules, weapons, crew, ...)".
But i kind of wrong: The Game was cool until Tier III. But then you will have to pay or accept it as your new 8h-Job and forget about real life.
So its more a DEMO than F2P!
Like some others said, its big fun in the beginning, but if you dont want to pay it becomes boring very fast, because of the need to level up and so the need to do lame PvE-Missions or endless PvP-Matches (waiting to start: 2-6 minutes, around 4 players and 2 stupid bots). First i didn't think "lame PvE-Missions" and "stupid bots" but if you have to do them 20-30 times just to level up and get a ship which is worse than your actual one, because its fresh and not leveled, you begin to forget very or less fast that this is/was a fun game and not your boring job.

It's no really P2W (for example you can't upgrade your weapons and modules for money) but you got to pay to have fun playing it over Tier 3 or 4.
If they would call it a Demo my review would be positive.

Pretty fun game, there are quite a few options for customizing your ship. I liked the fact that you could do PVE and PVP with the same ships and level up either way.
