"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."

Complex ‘Alpha-7’


In the closed sector of Pallas system, a suspicious signature similar to the Alien signals has been detected in an asteroid cluster.
The arriving scouts discovered the debris of a huge asteroid, destroyed by an unknown force. Large concentrations of Iridium were found during the study of the debris.
Several corporations constructed rigs for the extraction of Iridium, and a fierce battle for the resource is now at hand.

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 previously recommended this game, but I can no longer do that in good faith. I was talking in chat, stated an opinion and was muted by an admin for an hour because he wanted to "prove a point." Read some of the other reviews. This is a pretty common issue.

UPDATE: I've now been permanently banned from the discussion page by a moderator because of this. I'm honestly shocked at the blatent abuse of admin privileges. It's a shame because I did enjoy playing this game up until this point.

I've been putting a lot of hours into this game. It's generally good game in terms of gameplay, variety and battles but I'll list out the major cons:

-Extremely grindy

-Despite being called "free to play", people can just pay and advance to higher tiers/ranks. Lets call them Wallet players

-Wallet players who reach higher tiers will get all implants (implants are like the point system tree in borderlands, payday 2 etc)

-Wallet players who have all these implants can go back to lower tiers, are pretty much invincible and have the upper hand in every battle. YOU WILL GET YOUR ♥♥♥ HANDED TO YOU.

Now you may ask Oh my, why would they come back to lower tier games and spoil our fun?. I'll tell you why...
People think this game is really free to play and come into the lower tiers which are the only popluated matches available for instant battles. So the wallet players will just come into lower ranked games because nobody wants to wait 5 minutes for match. This is unsportive behaviour.

-The game developers only seem to update the game in a way that favours wallet players.

-Extra synergy (synergy is experience, you need this to access higher rank ships and higher tiers) cannot be transferred to ships which dont have full synergy. If you want to, you need to pay a lot of money.

-Upgrading weapons to the max requires loyalty points (these can be done by doing special challenges like 'kill 3 ships in one battle'. These challenges are called contracts) And this requires another longg rinding process because contracts can only be done certain times. Some contracts can only be done once per day. Or you can just pay money and upgrade your weapons.

-The game has an option to enable the profanity filter to filter explicit words for the faint hearted man-children. Despite this, uttering an explicit word in a moment of frustration will get you chat muted. This has happened to me countless times.

Now you might say "Oh you're just talking out of your behind, there's no such thing as paying to get an advantge in this game!"

You are either blind and didn't read all the above

OR

You already spent a ♥♥♥♥ton of money on the game and are comfortable knowing that you spent $$$ on digital flying machines.

ANY game that offers you the chance to pay money and progress in any way that puts you in a place that is unreachable to the common player without tremendous grinding is known as "Pay to win". And this game is a shining example of it.

Grindfest to the max. Pretty much just doing the same thing over and over, day in and day out, feeling like you're actually achieveing something. This game used to be a lot of fun. Maybe because the lower tier ships weren't so maddeningly far out of reach. I used to feel like I didn't have to spend money to enjoy this game. Then I bought a 3 month license just to start progressing. After all the effort I put into the game and not progressing very much, I had to take a long break from it. Came back after roughly 3 months and it's still pretty much the same game. Ridiculously long wait times to actually play, even more attempts to convince you to spend real money on the game.

The devs are moving it in a new direction, which is nice, but this is one of those games where I wish it wasn't just a perpetual beta. Just like FireFall, it seems the devs are focusing on the wrong areas and are adding new content without addressing existing issues. Feels like a huge letdown. Granted, it is free to play, but I was hoping for something more.

If you've played World of Tanks, you've already played Star Conflict. Sadly, I had let them both go. Seems too many games fade out because it's all a money grab... It might be for you, but after more than a year, I've come to realize this is not for me. Take my input with a grain of salt. You never know what you'll like unless you play it.

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.

Star Conflict is a good looking arcadish space sim with pretty fun gameplay and enjoyable flight physics. The ship models looks great with some really well designed maps and sky boxes.

Unfortunately, just like vast majority of free to play titles, this is an incredibly grindy game as you progress up the tiers while it feels more and more pay to win too. I think it is also a bait and switch as the first couple of tiers are pretty fair and enjoyable but as you move up the tiers of your ship, the grind and pay to win gets exponentially worse.

Avoid it at all cost. I do not recommend this grind fest. A game should be an enjoyable experience, not a grindy mechanism that feels like a second job.
