Anyone play this online? And if so, want to play a game versus me?

If you haven't heard of this, it's a 4X real-time strategy game. It's not new, been out for quite awhile, but it's up for it's second expansion to be released in february.

The first expansions expands on fortification, starbases and defensive research mostly. It's pretty good, starbases are awesome. The upcoming expansions will meat out diplomacy a lot.

slim interest for this game i see, guess we're the only one interested in RTS. Well, the skirmishes are still great, let me know if you ever decide to pick it up.

Yeah, I just bough Company of Heroes Golda week or so ago. So it might be a little while, although, I hear it may be coming to Steam. If it gets a good sale there, I might buy it.

It will probably never see a release on Steam, since the game is published by Stardock who also owns and runs the "rival" company Impulse where it's being distributed today.

I read something on forums (Impulse forums) about it, maybe I misread.

I have the demo, but I always assumed it was way too over my head, and I have some friends who play it religiously who always made it seem ultra complex. But thanks to that review, I think I'll give it a try some time. Looks a pretty interesting and user-friendly.

@Mickey it took me 2 skirmishes to get the basics, that was with a friend over skype though who had played it from before. But it's not really a problem once you've done a couple games.

@Ravage if it's still on sale then it will probably be there for a long time. because it's not one of their current promotions.
