This is a very very difficult game, I lost my first 4 games even on easy.

But addictive! I'm really enjoying it now

I got it on beta release day, and it's super good. The micromanagement is very real, however. It's quite different from other RTS games, and very faithful to BFG and 40k

You will also need a pretty glorious rig in order to run in at a good quality.

It took a while to grind up to it (with the exception of of a nearly 300 renown win), but having a nurgle marked cruiser is very satisfying. Lots of micro required to get the most out of it, but its efficacy is ruinously wretched.

I tried out the orks, and lost so very quickly. Not being able to turn quickly is very painful.

Although getting that engine burst (which so strongly reminds me of reaver ships from firefly) and ramming a smaller tonnage ship... Well it's just so damn fun.

Got the game last night. Got absolutely recked by chaos in my first game but pulled out a victory in the next.

I've been playing this every night basically. Ugh so many things.

Right now in beta there's no ELO rating system for online, so your level two ships might be up against a 8-9 supergiant with all the upgrades. The game tries to give you extra points to compensate, but i can tell you now, ain't but nothin gunna scratch a huge ork capital cruiser, not even 6 cobra destroyers.

Armies wise:

Imperium- my new favs. That range you can target ships with forward lances, then swing around to broadside em at close range. The armor/shield game is strong with this faction, once you bring down someone's shields they last very short time versus massed macro cannons. They are slowish tho, which leads to my next faction...

Chaos- God. Damn. Fucking. Chaos. They are truly the dickbag army if you want to play them that way, keeping their ships at max 12,000 range and just using bombers to ruin your day. Like vultures picking at you, eventually you'll die. Or they nurgle up and just try and stick in close range to rape your armor. Not as effective tho.

Orks- they've got the most torpedoes (you always know you're facing orks when a huge pile of torpedoe and boarding torp trials start singing all over the place. And then they ran your face. Chaos is best against them, imperials have to destroy their engines so they can't board at close range (or get some astartes upgrades to repel them).

I'm hesitant to see eldar, I feel like they'll be just chaos, but even faster and even longer range... M

Even the beta of this game is insanely fun tho.

Been playing it a lot too I found a really good tactic for Imperial ships. Basically you micro warp jump 200 yards of the broadside of the hostile ship, with your bow facing him, as soon as you show up launch your torpedoes then kick the thrusters into over drive. Killed 5 ships that way now.

I'm going to putz around with a Khorne marked Hellbringer (the one with the bombers/assault claws) and see if there is any synergy to be had there.

I feel like slaanesh with psyk and speed boosts might be best for carriers.

Just updated my first imperial light cruisers to admech, for those bonus upgrade slots.

Admech red is an awesome color

Eldar were released today!


gawd durn they is fast. Total glass hammer army tho.

Don't ever ram someone with your eldar ships. You will die.

Feel free to ram eldar if you're orks or imperials (if you can catch them).


I'll stick to my imperial admech fleet...

i think my micro warp jump and ram tactic will sever me well. The xeno scum will be, quite literally, crushed by the might that is the imperial navy.
