I'm not a big fan of Roccat.

What's your hangup(s) with them? I know next to nothing about them.

I had a friend who had a lot of issues. I stayed away.

Some early tips:

Don't get build happy with your mining stations. The ones that make credits are maintenance-free and should be a priority. The others all cost 1 energy per, so building a bunch of mining ones might get you in deep doo-doo.

Watch your minerals too, as colonies take a long time to get up but in the long-run getting those up sooner is better. However, make sure you've got the energy to take the hit (-8 for setup, which is probably around 1.5 years given travel time).

Mandates are in your situation log. You don't HAVE to do them, but they do give influence.

If you can, avoid using too many frontier outposts. They cost a lost influence and you lose 1/turn, as well as a lot of energy a turn.

ABS - always be scouting. I usually buy a second scout ship at the start and send it out to try and get an edge, and I prioritize surveying techs early.

Yeah - BE wasn't bad, but it never had the depth and its systems were rather simple. You didn't need to interact with the other players to win.

I hope they optimize the game though - I always found late-game Civ V to run terribly no matter how good your machine is, and hopefully they can find a way to make it good.

I'm enjoying it and feeling it out myself before tuning in to a stream or let's play so I can try and find the little nooks and crannies. My Photecian empire is already burgeoning. So far I'm not modding or altering it.

I'm not a big fan of Roccat. This is the mouse I'm using, and I see a lot of other people using it too:

Yes, and here's some in-game screens:





Steam page is also up. People are complaining about the art style, but I'm fine with it as long as the gameplay is good.

The real question is, can I play as Canadian forces...
Probably but who wants to go into battle with a musket

As much as we mock, the Canadians played a major role on the Western front for the entirety of the war.

I personally think WW1 is a poor setting; not because the war isn't important, because it's probably the most important war of the 20th century, but because of how the war was fought and the sheer brutality. It was a war of incompetent generals who didn't understand technological advances and how those should affect tactics, and as a result there was a ton of unnecessary loss of life. It's not a glorious war; there wasn't a "bad guy" in the sense of WW2, and as individual solder you were fairly worthless. Also, trench foot.

That said, I'm all for people getting exposed more to the war and the history.

Been in the closed beta, but played only a bit.

It's fun, and definitely a fun game to play with friends. I was never that into TF2 but I the comparisons are apt. I'm not sure if it will be a serious business game, but it will probably be a fun title that people remember fondly.

Neither of those games were subs at any point. There was a paid AH in D3 for a time, but there was no monthly fee to play. Diablo 2 never had a subscription.

point was that blizzard can have a game with just a box cost.

Absolutely. Just don't want to get the history wrong here.

Star Citizen / Re: SC - what controllers are you using?

Mouse is good for gimbal weapons, but it's not as good for maneuvers. Depending on what you fly, M+KB can be optimal on more sluggish ships (Hornet, Gladiator). I personally do not find M+KB as intuitive as a joystick, but to each his own.

You don't need to delete old characters. You can re-use a character and convert them to a seasonal. It does put them at level 1 and it does mail their stuff to your non-seasonal account, but that helps conserve slots. I know that I'm basically full myself so this prevents me from needing to delete and re-make.

As far as deleting and keeping achieves, I believe the answer is that you do keep your achievements even if you delete a character.
