End of Nations Beta Event

A third closed beta event is now underway in End of Nations, and will run through the weekend for this upcoming MMORTS game. It's not too late to participate, as the beta page is still accepting signups. Here's word:

Trion Worlds today kicked off the third highly-anticipated closed beta event for End of Nations™, the upcoming free-to-play online military strategy game. The event went live at 12:01am EST last night and will conclude Sunday, September 9 at 11:59pm EST, and this time around the development team will be debuting Elite Companies – pre-configured armies that can be purchased and are built to serve a specific purpose.

Elite Companies will be available for both Shadow Revolution commanders and Liberation Front commanders and can be summoned into combat just like other units earned by players over time. Join us this weekend for the End of Nations third closed beta event and experience a true free-to-play, premium, MMORTS!

So . . . FTL just updated on Steam about an hour ago . . . Nod32 says the exe is infected with Crypt.win32 virus. Wow, hope it's just a false positive.

I'd be more than a little surprised. It's happened before with steam updates (outside of FTL), and it's almost always a false positive.

Played about 15 seconds before I quit in disgust. There's nothing massively multiplayer about this game. 12v12 on "maps" isn't an MMO, you'd think trion would know better.

The meta game certainly could be considered an MMO. Think about the current MMOs for a second every single one of them you are pretty much only dealing with 5-25 people at a time usually in a dungeon/pvp/raids or what have you. So not really all that different when you think about it on those terms.

FTL is becoming "trendy" now?

Well, it is an awesome game so I have no doubt this has all the potential to become a classic.

Hmm, guess I'll boot this up. Good thing I updated...wait...600mb download needed.

Okay, back to FTL!

So far, I'm really liking FTL.
It has this retro, C64/Amiga feel to me, and the game will beat you down in a heartbeat.

I'm LOVING FTL. I really hope this is an amazing runaway success for the guy. It's so simple to play but there is so much to see and do. The achievements he picked to unlock other ships were perfect. I just unlocked the lvl 2 rock ship and holy cow that thing is fun. IT'S DOESN'T HAVE ANY WEAK SPOTS, IT'S A ROCK!!!

Uh, what's FTL?
You don't know what FTL is?
It's a rather awesome game, funded by a kickstarter. The guy(s) making it were even nice enough to include the 10.00 backers in early beta access before release.

Interesting. I have been out of gaming scenes for years even though I still hang out on BN. I just don't play them.

Heh, I kept thinking For the Lose (FTW = For the Win).

+1 for FTL

I am having a god damn blast playing FTL. I'm now trying to get achievements to unlock separate designs and new ships but god damn, the final boss is a nightmare to defeat.

And I still only unlocked the 2 designs for the Enge(sic) ship. The second design is nuts, only one crew member, the rest is robots and the ship comes without sensors.

Beta testing is not so good with all these huge updates and game data... it takes a toll on the monthly bandwidth.
