9. Re: Armada Online Kickstarter Aug 25, 2012, 01:56 mark
 
Starflight and Star Control 2 are definite influences, and guide our plans for the scope of the story.
Armada Online is an rpg. Ship guns autofire at your target, regardless of facing direction. Control and structure is most like War3, but locked to one unit (some can summon small craft, mechs, or stations). There is a large open exploration area where most of the story will take place called Delta 3, but also special mission zones like the Neutral Zone that plays like Dota, or The Burn which is multi tower defense.
Years ago when I discussed the issue with Paul Reiche, he said that the early use of spaceships in simple arcade games prejudiced some people against games like Star Control 2. Some people see spaceships and just assume it must be a shooter, and have no depth. "Make it more like WoW" is what we get.
It would be really cool if you tried Armada Online. There is a lot that is good about it.
