For all who think of starting in this game, let it be said that this is not your regular.
-pay to win or play to win game. It is a game that takes time and friends and allies to get anywhere.
This is a completely player controlled sandbox game.
- skillsystem is time based, you train while online and offline,
- very well based ships and every ship has its purpose and role to play.
- a steady and increasing player base.
- uppdates and more content (ships/functions) are FREE and are regulary.
- a good dev team and support.
- choise based, it is up to you industrialist, worrior, support, fleet commander, miner, pirat and trader (to mention a few).
- waste univers/world
- exelent graphics.
- for new players, this game might look hard to start in.
- game been around for 7+ years, players with 7+ years with skills are hard to compete with (thats why alliances exist to join)
- takes a long time to get really started, we are talking months.
For last, this is the most hard core game of the MMORPG- science fiction genre. But it is still the best one by far.
Also i recommend not to buy this through steam, but rather through the official site due to minor problems i have heard people are having with this game on steam.
