Thanks for your reply Netheos.

This is of course just my opinion, but despite the advertising you mentioned, I still think the clutter of the old forum (and all its sub-forums) obscures the announcement of a new forum.

And someone who misses the fact that there is a new forum will assume that the community is dead which reflects poorly on the state of the game.

Seems like it would be an easy fix to preserve the old forum while re-directing to the new.

But take this feedback as you will.

Going to bring up the elephant in the room here - there doesn't seem to be enough activity on the new forum since things kicked off last week. There are like a total of 5 posters on this new forum.

I suspect it might be because:

  1. The link announcing the change is relatively obscure on the old site and can easily be overlooked.

  2. The old forum appears active even if there are no new posts.

To limit confusion, whoever is in charge of this transition should consider a more forceful approach.

Perhaps all of the sub-forums in the old forum could be buried under an "Archived" folder and the only available link is the sticky providing a link to these forums?

I don't know what the best solution is, but it seems like something should be done to elegantly "force" users to here instead of having the old forum be a zombie effectively blocking traffic to this forum.

A healthy forum is critically important in creating and maintaining a gaming community as well as providing a medium where users can communicate issues to the creators. So this issue should be a big priority.

Played Tau for the first time yesterday.

Their light cruiser seemed to do as much damage as a broadside from my cruiser while retaining 75 armor. Tried ramming, but 75 armor means I'm not doing enough damage despite its hit points while my face is melting and the crunch turns to my side armor against its front.

Working as intended? 😛

Seems pretty cheesy. I can see Chaos not caring at all with all their lances from 12/15k, but it seems Tau are tailor made to destroy IN (just like Orks but in a different way).

Like I mentioned in another thread, I'm new to the game - having purchased it during a Steam summer sale. I was pleasantly surprised by this game and I regret not paying full price sooner. It is simply fantastic.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any in-depth information about what factions and ships players consider to be the strongest and/or what the current meta is like. So, here is my attempt to solicit the opinions of those far more steeped in the game's nuances than I.

In the interests of getting conversation started, I'm providing some general questions below. Thank you in advance to anyone who wants to contribute!

  1. How would you rank each faction in terms of their overall competitiveness (1-6) and why?
  2. What ships do you think are the "strongest" for that faction and why?
  3. In general, what play style(s) appear to be dominant?

Thank you. In due time, I will contribute my own thoughts on this as I gain experience with the game.

I'll also try to edit/update this OP with the prevailing thoughts of other posters.

I can be reached in Steam for games as well.

New to the game, I bought it during Steam sale last week, and I wish I had purchased sooner. It is fantastic! I hope to be playing for some time to come.

I'm seeing a common thread on this forum and the old forum of people complaining about the lack of new content and updates. Has Focus Home Interactive considered starting a Kickstarter campaign for continued development? This is just such a great game, would hate to see it atrophy.
