    can you cast a dynamic alliances FFA game of say 20 Uber staff, as a launch event and a tease of whats to come.

    how many custom commanders have you made - i.e. are their further ones than in the armoury? (and how long do you think it will take the community to hunt them all down and post pics)?

    now you have done a spherical map, would you ever go back? (spherical tower defence maps, made up sports game akin to rugby/bloodbowl/frozen endzone)

    could we get a few stats - most nukes in a non modded game, most units, biggest planet generated etc?

    For me the number one issue with the game right now is the various bugs associated with the lobby. I'd really love to know when we can expect a serious pass on the lobby to ring out the remaining bugs with games not being visible, slots not being accessible, and other assorted weird edge cases.

    Is the unit roster complete? if not, how big could it get/what kind of new units could we see? (example. air-bots or buildings)

    Brad posted today that Offline mode would be coming in "soon after launch."

    Maybe we could get a specific time frame in the live stream? Soon as in days, weeks, months?

    Also, the devs should demonstrate a 10v10 game on the same servers we play on.

    I'd like to know if you plan to create animation for loading/unloading an astreus or air transport, and also if you plan to make units entering orbital of another planet not look so janky (how they instantly teleport to where you ordered them as soon as they hit the orbital layer).

    I'd like to see something from Steve Thompson. I always loved him showing (art) stuff on the previous livestreams.

    I'd like to know the status on everything terrain related (mostly cliffs though, as usual). Is there anything interesting in the works? Planned for the near future? Planned long term? Possible but unplanned? Very briefly considered in a drowsy stupor one morning before your morning coffee?

    Could you give us an idea on how you play to support PA beyond release? That is to say with expansions/updates/balances/patches etc. I'm sure many are eager to hear how additional content might be delivered.

    Continuing from the above question, would you consider a second Kickstarter? inXile did a second one before the first one was even released. You could tie up all loose ends with the current release and then Kickstart a sequel, or maybe even just an expansion pack, if you judge that the community is not ready for a sequel. I didn't back the original, but I sure as hell would back anything you pitch now with the word annihilation in it!

    Nice, last PA-stream i saw was the one around the ending kickstarter campaign. Watching was a lot of fun, so i'll make sure to take a look at the release-stream.

    The game might not be entirely finished, but Uber deserves that one. We'll also see if they get drunk and start spilling secrets.:D
