Hi ho!

It's been far a long time since I ventured here, but I recently received an interesting e-mail from origins. So I started Steam and tried the melee beta that is currently available to those who were founders.

Have you guys tried it yet? Opinion?

I'll give mine after because I want to see your opinion first!

EDIT: I inquired more about the NDA and decided it was better to remove this.

I would not worry much about the melee not being diverse enough yet. It'll come, once the melee mechanics are fully working.
No use balancing the ships to diversity yet, while the engine is not fully operational.

I've gotten mixed signals about this - I read on signup that it's pretty open as long as I didn't post media, then saw a stricter interpretation from someone else on the project. So I'm erring on the side of caution.

Just wanted to say...I got to read it before it was deleted. How soon should I expect to get the FBI knocking down my door?

So far i'm less than impressed to be honest! But, they might fix some of it...some ships are kind of doing damage without any clear insight about how they actually work...and also there is something about the way the maps wrap around that is so odd compared to hours and hours of original star control...I mean I can literally screw the AI by using that fact...

Oh well! It's a beta after all, the engine itself seems okay
