Is it just me, or does Starpeace look absolutely fantastic?
Has anyone played it from the UK? What about on 56Kbps dailup? What about on 56Kbps dailup from the UK? From what little I've seen, it's not really bandwidth intensive - a lag of a few seconds shouldn't be too bad, but I can't really say.
I'd really like to give that a go and I think the monthly charge could mean this will last - it has done so far.
To anyone that's played it - does it need a good net connection? Is it deep? I mean, are there loads of businesses to be in, loads of options, etc. I don't care if it takes months (or for ever) to get familiar with things - I want something that will last and be challenging for potentially years. If it's shallow and limited to Monopoly Tycoon, it's useless.
Also, how limiting is it? Can you think strategies with an open mind or are you somewhat stuck to rails? Basically, does being a good business man make you a good player, or is being experienced with this game's style help more? The main advantage of being massively multiplayer should be that you are free to do true business tricks and not get limited by the game.
It's like the difference between Age of Empires (not the bedt example) and Civilisation. Civilisation isn't deeper because it gives loads of options. It's deeper because it gives no limitations.
Anyway, any players out there, please comment.
War isn't about who's right, its about who's left.
