    It's cute that you thought there was a chance that this would end well.

    This probably won't end well.

    Time to write a review though.

    Aah the Internet, give people anonymity and a chance to spout bile, and they shall happily take it.

    Also the internet has been a test to see how many monkeys bashing on keyboards it takes to produce anything useful.

    Never thought it would end well. Merely stated hopefully doesn't end up as a total cluster fark but I assumed it would be a cluster fark.
    So my problems with it. So little space to write about the issues with Metacritic.

    Lame. It should be noted those are all reviews of the Early Access edition. Too bad there isn't that distinction.

    Can't not enough space on the Internet.;) Also down with twitter and its arbitrary character limits.

    Well it is critic but nothing more. Months back, ewww but now :)done maybe :D, 2 years from now maybe :eek: and noone else is doing this, IMO. In rts, sc2 do this, but not at this level.

    Metacritic has a character limit of 150 though :p.

    But the issue can be summed up as this: 3 scores of 10, one of 8, two of 9, one of 0, total score 8.6.

    Edit: the arbitrary character limit was 5000, I stand corrected.

    No. It's a character minimum of 150. They have a limit of 5,000.

    Posted my review with a score of 9.

    One day I hope for PA to be a 10.

    Until then I'll have to play more of it...

    I noticed without any Critic reviews the page looks bare.

    The only review of "0" for PA on metacritic is from a user who consistently gives out zeros to pretty much every game. I wish metacritic had a report douchebag button for those users who live only to make others miserable.

    Speaking of missing features, the page is so bare compared to others. I wish community members were allowed to upload/link proper Box art and videos and such.

    This is the consequence of poor marketing decision (90€ Early Access), misinformation (this is TA & SupCom like, not Starcraft) and a little bit of pride hurt & lack of skill (yes, send close combat units against long ranged units, good boy...).
    Can not end well. User review are crap 99% of the time...

    And Brian, your review is higly biaised :
    - 40 players games does not exist yet (promised, but still far away from being possible)
    - planet smashing is just a map annihilation in a fancy form, a few other RTS have already done this (have to dig trough my posts, will edit later)(maybe, tired and have a plane tomorow)
    (altrough it is very very cool and fancy...)
    - Galactic War is a high revamp of TA's Boneyard + a few little bits from other RTS (can't remember the names, crap >_<)
    Choose your words carefully !
    (yeah, Devil's advocate... But don't write things that might get used against you in the future)

    they've been played before and are quite possible, assuming bigger servers probably even reasonably playable.
    Definitely not far away.
