    Hmm, I seem to remember playing a beta of this sometime round December. Its a decent enough game like, different enough from other RTS's to keep it interesting.

    The Ruses really aren't all that though, yeah, they're another thing to fiddle around with, but its not like in that advert where suddenly you rape someones face off with a massive fleet of hidden stuff. :D

    My honest assessment of the game from the closed beta... it would be better without the ruses, but I think that might be a hard sell as feedback.

    Being a huge company of heroes fan can safely say I shall be trying this for sure.Kind of seems like a wwII total war but better.

    Doesnt really look like CoH during the game though, by and large you're playing at the zoomed out level, so most of your units are showing as icons.

    Certainly its pretty when you zoom in, but you cant really control the battle from there.

    It seems to have bust or been taken offline. I got a Steam message saying "This game can no longer be played for free" and has gone back to Pre-load Complete. :confused:

    Restarting steam should sort that, I had the same message.

    Cheers. That fixed it. Now to see how ghastly it runs on my meagre gear.

    Quite obviously not, can you imagine a company making a game that could ONLY be played with a 10k piece of equipment? How would they make a profit?

    I haven't the foggiest what to do. Is there a tutorial? I may have missed it in the 5-second-glance I gave the game earlier.

    Looks interesting. I hope UBI don't mess it up.

    Surely the posters comment was tongue in cheek, if not the world has truelly gone mad

    That would work if the table was designed and sold by them, pretty sure it's not though is it? :p

    This ^^ - I like the game, but the ruses are like a minor annoyance to the enemy.. Also - in the beta- the maps seem too small.

    i have been playing this over the weekend and i am enjoying it so far..

    only problem is.. i keep getting pwned!!! :( has anyone got any good base building tips apart from building plenty of supply buildings? and are the 'turrets' really worth it or would i be better using units to defend?

    EDIT: add me on steam if you play this: Qlimaxe
