I started fooling around with it for an hour last night. It's so TA. Which isn't a bad thing. Needs more units for what I can tell so far.
Looks like I'm going to lose 5-6 hours on my life today. For $25.00 it's a great deal.
Can't use DX12 because of WIN7 Running @ 2K, 4XAA, Highest settings I'm getting average of 43+ frames. Not too bad for a stock R390X
Win 10 is a free upgrade, you don't need to purchase anything.I hear you. I just can't bring myself to purchase WIN10. Maybe I will in the future & do a "dual-boot OS" Screw MS & not offering DX12 for WIN7. Not to mention there's 52% market share for WIN7. The best OS system to date IMHO.
if you upgrade your key is now limited to that rig and they retain the right to burn that key if you upgrade MB or CPU.Win 10 is a free upgrade, you don't need to purchase anything.
From Developers...yea how is the AI....does it do the endless trickle or actually amass an army?
From what I've played so far, anything above beginner AI is quite good.Draginol [developer] 25 Feb @ 8:57pm
BETA 2: WELCOME and PLEASE read!
Greetings! Welcome to BETA 2. We're so glad to have you part of the beta program.
We've already gotten some great data from you guys including some issues with 4K resolutions. I think we'll be able to fix this in the next day or so.
Now, this may seem like a strange request but please do your best to find ways to crash the game. Every time the game crashes, we get data. Single player, multiplayer, you name it.
## Top Questions we are getting ##
1. Will there be a single player campaign?
A: Yes. Ascendancy Wars will have a non-linear story driven campaign. We also hope to have some other special goodies that I can't yet talk about in there as well.
2. Is this a mostly MP game?
A. No. While the game (Even in beta) has a lot of multiplayer features including ladders, match making, custom game modes, team play, etc. We anticipate most people playing the game single player. This is one of the reasons we've invested so much in to what we hope players will agree is the best RTS AI ever made.
is AI better because it cheats AKA gets 300% more resoures and units cost 50% like SC or is it good because it has an actual brain. I hate fighting AI that cheats because its impossible to survive the first 30 mins because they have a 3x resource advantage.From Developers...
From what I've played so far, anything above beginner AI is quite good.
you do realize maxwell is the worst GPU for DX12.....It is total shit. DX12 on AMD or next gen will be vastly better.DX12 has a ways to go, no SLI support without DX12 apparently and I only get like maybe 5 FPS more with DX12 enabled.
Still, cool game and it's nice to see some PC-centric development.
