MMO Games

“if you’re the type of person who is interested in turn-based strategy games, particularly if you like the tabletop/pen and pencil types, you might want to give this one a shot”

Game itself is good. Nicely done, graphics and everything Ive only played few matches against AI it was fun. And I can recommend a game for the gameplay, graphics and all in all feeling but the ingame community is dead. All commentaries were right Ive searched for a match half an hour and only thing that I saw was a guy who wrote hi, is there anyone here? and he dissapeared. Believe me or not I really dont know if that indeed happend or my imagination played a game with me. Too bad game designers left this to die, could have been sucha blast. Hopefully they will return one day!!! Until then thumbs down.

I really enjoy this game and if it was single player and had a story it would be awesome. As a multiplayer game it is dead on arrival and unfortunately there isn't much in the way of AI.

Gameplay wise it reminds me of simple, but pretty Poxnora combat without the resources, spells or unit summoning.

I love the Rackham Universe..and very much miss there tabletop games. This game has increadible potential..however it seems to have been forgotten about. There have been no new updates with regards to content. In the game you can see other factions might be available..but in the last year nothing has been added. Games is just taking to long to add any content and i and many of my mates have simply moved on.

EDIT May 30/2015: Unfortunately, it seems the population has bottomed out, and the developers have abandoned the game.

Very strategy-rich game, has lots of potential. Units have their own skill/spell tree, different combat interactions like parrying counterattacks dodging riposte, many atrributes and active or passive effects you have to all take into account throughout battle. Lots more classes/units planned as far as I saw on their wiki. Recommend to turn-based/strategy fans. It is not pay-to-win, since you get matched based on your army level - have a stronger army, then you face stronger armies. Don't have many criticisms, its already pretty complex and its only in closed beta stage.

EDIT (02/06/14): Now that it is in open beta, they have changed a few things. Some positives, like more missions/training modes, balancing buffs/nerfs, unit customization such as color and naming.
However, there are a lot of negative changes they have made. Particularly in regards to making the grind for in-game currency much, much slower. They've made missions restore only after 24hrs, and reduced success rate. They allow higher-leveled units to be only purchasable by real money, other than having to level them up manually. Experience gain is slower, and they increased prices for units. All in all, it isn't pay to win, but its very much free-to-grind. Like they say, you pay real money to be able to advance easier without as much grind. But the grind is very slow in this game.

Will update review if they make any major changes to the gameplay/grind. Everything in-game is still unlockable through in-game currency, you can play entirely free. It is exactly how F2P models should be, but much slower grind. You have been warned, its still very fun :-) GL HF
