I'm signing up right now to test it out. Anyone else tried it yet?

I'm on the Scorpia server, only 1 of 2 for US atm...

I signed up. Looks freaking awesome, like BTRL awesome. Hard to control with KB/M. I overheated in the tutorial.

I gotta wait till I get home to try it out. Don't wanna install the extra nonsense that it requires on the work PC :/

If it's anything like BTRL I'll be freaking amazed. A friend and I used to have 1v1 dogfights in it that would go for hours.

This game would be more fun if I didn't suck balls at piloting.... its not bad for an in-browser game though. Only played for about an hour last night. Will be watching this game a few months down the road.


Does anyone have a ship past the newbie ships? Nose pitch seem slow or is it just me?

like avnos said, not bad for an in-browser type of game, but... the controls are really poor. definitely not worth paying for if it becomes subscription.

If these ran on the Eve engine
I wish the flight controls were slightly better. The swoop move engine doesn't seem to work right. Far slower than just turning around. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
Death has no down side from what I'm seeing. Maybe cause I'm still in the noob ship so it doesnt cost anything, but all my fittings come back so I can only assume than when you blow up an enemy cruiser in pvp they just go back into the same cruiser...

I took out with a gang a mining faciliy and set my own up then went around looking for more planetoids to do that on and came up a larger friendly ship sitting on a friendly mining base and helped that person kill a returning LARGE enemy ship. The friendly said they had killed that same cylon like 6 times already and by the time i had made it to the other side of a few larger planetoids he was back again....same ship....just a small delay in what he was doing.

But whatever. Its not UN-fun

OH BTW FUCK some damn dust all over the place. Shit, I had no idea space was such a dusty place.
I know it would be far more dull looking w/o it all but, it just reflect real bright. It almost hurts my eyes its so bright

Speaking of BTRL, some of their dev team split off to work on Diaspora which is essentially an upgraded version of BTRL under a new name (also using a modernized version of the Freespace 2 engine). They're moving at about Black Mesa Source speed but they release screens every so often and it looks pretty gorgeous. Something to keep an eye on at least if you're a BSG and space sim fan.
