Great Free to Play Space Battle Game. Many say "World of Tanks in space", they say that because of the following things in common : Ships organised in 3 Factions and Tech Tree, 10 minute PvP Fights (in WoT it's 20 min), Synergy gain (in WoT Experience), Clans, and a Conquest map. That is not something original or specific only to World of Tanks, but because it is so popular, that may be a reason for many to say this is WoT in space, i personally don't know. But what i do know, is that this game is fast entertainment, as soon as you hit Battle, and fight, you just enjoy it.
✓PvE (Not in WoT :P)
✗Corporations(Clans) don't have their own page in game, when you search trough them you got no APPLY button, they don't have description so you could see who can you contact to get in, hell not even displaying the leader of the clan, so you could contact him. I really don't know why, but only way you can get in a corp, is by waiting for someone to recruit on global chat, and speak with them, no other means of contact, sad thing.
✗Full synergy ships, should get more credits and/or free synergy(like in WoT :D), at least 20% bonus, but they don't do anything special, only adding to your Fleet Strenght (a percentage based on fully synergysed ships that makes you get more synergy)
✗There is no method (or no easy to spot method) of contacting the Devs about the upper 2 problems, or whatever inovation you want to suggest. There is a Q@A section on the official forum... ALL CLOSED, yeah :|
✗The time to enter a battle is in most cases 3 minutes. 3 minutes being a minimum. And max idk, 5-6 minutes, but mostly you will wait 3 or 4 minutes. 3 Minutes might not sound too long, but as i said this game is fast entertainment, also battle are ~10 minutes, and it get's you hyped up, so waiting 3 minutes can be frustrating, and also it does not matter if you party up, you will still wait minimum 3 minutes, so the matchmaking needs upgrades too.
Other that that this is an entertaining game, which could get you 50-100 hours easy, BUT, any more than that and you can get bored, depends on you and your boredom level, so because of that Clan contacting problem, if you are not lucky to find yourself some mates, you WILL get bored. Try getting some friends to play with you, I mean it's freaking free, what they got to loose :)
Why do i say it gets boring? It's kinda grindy and repetitive, so that might get you sooner or later, it's not so very complex, but it's fun for what it is. That 'repetitive stuff' is kinda entertaining and fun, but as i said, you won't probably play this a lot, except if you got friends to play with, or a clan with nice mates.
Even with it's flawss, i still recommend this game, because i consider it to be an entertaining game.
