"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.

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

Pros
- Game combat can be enjoyable, not always though, in fact mostly not enjoyable unless you're fully decked out with equipment.
- Open space mode can have really nice battles between corporations, but not often enough.
- Graphics and effects are nice, could use a optional graphic pack for 4k texture.

Cons
- A lot of ping issues, which is the reason for your ship wobbling on its own. The admins just tell you to read over a connection issue forum post, but new players shouldn't have to do that, and instead the servers should be good enough, and setup well enough. Like good hosts that have the best location for the players on the game with good networking.

- The game is really really grindy, not as bad as some other games, but could be more focused on having fun.

- Once you reach Tier 3 pvp, it becomes really difficult for new pilots to adapt, and have any chance. Usually the reason why people quit the game. They enjoy it until T3, which is when they meet fully equipped, mk4 premiums that are almost impossible for new pilots to do anything.

- Not enough population on the game, all bad factors contribute to this, and its only getting worse.

- A few ships feel like they are pay-to-win, not saying they are, but having bonuses they are seen as p2w, such as the Spark, a lot of veterans use it because of the advantages over the Lightbringer. Mauler has advantages over Inquisitor AE. Dessert Eagle and Nukem I are a clear advantage over any of gunships in T3.

- Isn't really enjoyable playing alone, in order to enjoy the game fully, being in a team is needed, which is hard to play as a team.

- People have the image that are non-US corps cheat, which would probably be something to do with ping. Most of the Russian corps in game always seem to kill you faster then what anyone else would be able to do, again, probably because of ping.

- Teamwork isn't encouraged by the game, being in a squad will take forever to get a match. Which is ridiculous, but thats the game for you.

- Developers released dreadnoughts, and basically said "Hey, here are 3 dreadnoughts, you can't change them after you chose one, and here is no information about each of them. Chose wisely." They don't give us information we need to make good choices in game.

- There is a story about a corp, I will not speak of the corp or the user who got banned, but the user had an argument with a moderator, not a terrible argument, and this was on the forums. The user got banned from both the forums and in game for around 45 years. The corp he was a part of were going to speak up against the issue, but decided to quit instead, a medium/large size corp mostly quit together because of a moderators action. The corp leader even put tons of money into the game to help it.

I do not recommend as there is to many problems with a game that has so much potential.
If people think the game is so good, then people shouldn't be leaving. Being blind to the reasons the game is bad will waste your time and money.

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.

If you like pulling your hair out at horrid matchmaking, grinding endlessly to get part of what you want, and suffering along alongside your dearest friends at what the devs think 'balance' is, then this game is for you.

If not, go somewhere else. This game is not for you.

Fun game, free to play.
To win at this game it's all about chance that your ship type can counteract any other player's ship in the game & maxing out all modules to the highest level in order to get an advantage.

***-NOTE: Before you play this game you should know that it has a lack of funding & the game & in-game chat is moderated by regular biased players who are *NOT PAID OR TRAINED IN-HOUSE STAFF* who are given total unchecked authority to mute & censor anybody they please in the game's chat with moderation powers granted by the devs.
The unpaid moderation staff break the rules all the time & arbitrarily mute & ban players for houres & sometimes up to weeks at a time if they felt you did something to them on a person level that they didn't like, without any regard to the actual rules written.
The appeals system for these regular players arbitrarily censoring & banning you is grossly ineffective as you cannot chat or reply back in any way in-game or on the game making in game appeals to other unpaid moderators or devs in-game to appeal your cencorship or ban impossible. Other alternatives are signing up to their forum & contacting a moderator there to review your cencorship, but more often than not you cannot reach them at a modest time & your censorship/ban has already ended-expired because you werent able to contact them quick enough.

This is an extremely unjust moderation system & I have never seen this in any other game I have played in my entire life, there is automatic anti-spam filters, & automatic anti-curseword filters to prevent bad behavior on this game that the dev's rulebook says you cannot be banned or cencored for these counts of rulebreaking, but their unpaid team of regular player's with moderation powers ban you for these counts anyhow & thus ending up breaking the rules themselves in this regard often enough. When you are banned or cencored you are also never informed of what offence you have 'done wrong' or anything of the sort.
You are just banned out of the blue (I've woken up & logged on without days of palying before to find out I've been cencored fo near 6+ days before without any kind of warning from devs or unpaid mods alike or anything telling you what offence you comitted/or did wrong which is not only total clueless injustice to the player playing this game, but it is total blind sabotage to their own system promoting the offender to go out & 'offend' again unknowingly & do the same thing wrong again because he was never properly told what he did wrong.)(You also dont know which official dealt it out either so you dont know who to watch out for/behave extra well around either which also promotes repeat offences as well).
I have inquired both the lead administrator who is presumably paid on their game's forum, the unpaid moderation team members, & devs alike how their game's cencorship/& moderation is dealt out & I am told it really just amounts to sheer numbers of reports (So you beat somebody in-game they dislike this, they call you a name or something right, you respond back, even if you didn't do anything wrong, if the reporter or other people combined/or separate over the total net worth of reports is more reports on your head than it is on yours, you will be banned. The unpaid moderators are not impartial, they do not look for truth in both sides of the reports, & they ban simply based on sheer numbers towards 1 side, weather the side with the most reports is right or wrong which promotes mass reporting to have people you dislike banned from the game.).
There are 2 general kinds of bans on this game, regular player ban (for exploiters/hackers), & cencorship/chat ban.
In order to regular-ban somebody form playing the dev suggesting ban or mod sugegsting ban need to get an overall agreement on it at a meeting w/ all the devs. The chat bans are dealt out & totally not answerable to anybody.
A mod could ban you & aside from him & you he'd be the only one who knows about it. Devs/mods can look up ban history & review bans but its still a death sentence because you're cencored & all the dev sees is a reported/banned-for out of context comment, & only the mod's half of the story. You dont get a fair appeal or your side of the story exposed.
I like this game, it's a good game, but I havenever seen such a corrupt/abusive ineffective moderation system like this ever before in my entire life. This game is a 100% total appalling inefficient travesty in this regard.
Moderation on this game really shouldn't be used at all since it's all automated, in-game grudges ruins an otherwise fine game because regular players have moderation powers on here.-***


Don't let above^ review discourage you from downloading this game, it's a good game, it's totally balanced & it's well designed in terms of a company that's got moderate-to-low-funding, & it is worth playing.
This is no pay to win game either. I have purchased lots of $ worth of their in-game DLC purchasable ships & for the most part they are not at all end-game totally unbeatable over pwoered ships, by playing free you can equal the premiuum ship's capabilities & power it just takes you more game time to do it (Which is the catch of course, premium just lets you get stronger stuff faster, as opposed to just unbeatable storng stuff in general/period.).

I do recommend you play this game & purchase some DLC (If you want to, again playing free can equal paid for ships ^^^as said above), & this game is fine as it is & it's worth playing, it's a good game.
However the moderation system on this game is very very extremely appalling & if it weren't for this very very horrible system of moderation that lets regular player's in-game bias & team death match grudges ruin your time & experience on this game because they abuse & take it out on other players, this game would be absolutely 100% fine.



I have played this game for 1,200 legitimate hours worth, & I have purchase some of the developer's in-game premium DLC this is not some angry rant or biased report leaning either way on soe short-term weak whim, I have been around the community the moderation methods & the gameplay for thousands of hours worth over the course of 9 months or more I do know what goes on on this game in its entirety.


So long story short;
Is this a good game?: Yes
Should you play this game?: Yes
Is this game balanced?: Yes
Is this game pay-to-win?: No
Are there multiple/well varied game modes in this game?: Yes
Is this game worth spending my money on?: Yes, if you like the game enough
Is the game's community in general alright/polite/nice?: Yes, there are always bad eggs on every game just don't run into a bad egg with moderation powers on this game in particular.


If I had 1 thing to comment/say to the devs behind this game it would be this:
I don't see why this game needs any moderation at all everything is automated so every 'punishable' offence is covered. I've seen games without any moderation filters or moderation staff at all what so ever do perfectly fine.
The payless staff just abuse on players whenever they feel like it or if they get mad over a multiplayer match in-game, they just ruin a game that would be 100% fine without this.
I really hope you fix this problem it's a complete massive & unecissary blight on the game at large, & thanks.
