So it seems like close to 5 000 people have already signed up, they need 20 000 to get the big publishers to jump in and support their gameWe do get our money back if they don't raise enough players
they also let you choose to settle for a smaller scale of the game, if they can't raise enough funding
the fact this game lets you create user created contents
, and then SELL IT
in game, is the coolest thing ever!
also stuff you DISCOVER in games, you get to NAME it after yourself (or anything you like), as well as sell the RIGHTS of it to other players to use it.
I'm liking more this game for it's in game economic side of things, than for the military / thief - pirates / PvP
they'll be also adding an Alien tree later on in game, in case you don't want to start as a human.
Anyways I purchased a big ship out right, I'll need a crews to help me run my ship, and the dog fighters, etc.
Definitely CAN NOT run this game by yourself, as you actually need people piloting the gun turrets, engineering, etc
Okay yes you can play this game Solo, if you go for a fighter, but then you'll be alone in the big vast universe, and you might run out of fuel / parts before you reach the next Planet / Job
I'm planning to play Mercenary for hire outright with main emphasis on trade and designing our own stuff to support our "guild / clan / house" in game
So, who's in with me?
I'll most likely be naming it OCN or something along the lines, this forum is a natural for recruiting new players
might as well make it our Guild Name, so all OCN members can run on the same fleet, once enough of us get more battle ships.
I'll also welcome any OCN with their own dog fighters / scout / cargo ship to dock with us as we'll need all the help we can get to establish a strong foot hold in the galaxy.
Man! i'm so excited to get playing.
not even MechWarrior Online has me this worked up
