I received my Beta invitation today and started playing immediately. Yeah it's like BP in space. But it's faster...travel times. And base design isn't a major deal. It's enjoyable to play. I dunno..it's cooler. 3D corrds. The setup with attacking cargo fleets instead of mines. The "world map" is you in orbit above a planet. I have had a few people ask me about the game who also applied for the Beta testing but haven't received the invite yet. Many want to be Beta testers too so I said I'd ask in these forums if you, Kixeye, will be sending out more "invites"? More as time goes by or what? I also think think game is going to hurt Battle Pirates. The climb to the top is more fun than the top itself. A lot of people will want to start from scratch and apply what they learned in BP. Space battle is just more fun that sea battles.

    The beginning part of VC is very much like the beginning of BP - back when everything was fast and cheap to build and repair. The FvF, also, is a lot like what BP's FvF was originally, before they put in arrow keys and allowed everyone to drive their ships stacked. In VC they purposely do not allow ship stacking at all (even though it would make more sense in a space game than a naval game). They also have enough mouse controls that I don't even miss the keyboard - I kind of like it the way it is.

    Yeah me too. Though I do appreciate being able to do some things on a keyboard just to not have to point and click so much.

    As I understand it, the first number was 10,001. Not sure if that means non-kixeye employees or everyone.

    When they send out more invites, they need to invite Sakis ;)   Maybe he'd be so kind to create a ship designer for us.
