Since the Alpha release, I've pretty much ignored PA, because I like to play finished games, and I wanted to wait for release. And at the time, there had been a huge influx of Linux testers, so I figured my input wouldn't be needed. Now that PA has been officially released, I decided to play the finished game. I'm wondering what the state of the game is, and more importantly, how well it runs on Linux. I know that there's been some hate for the game on various communities (Steam, Reddit) but at the same time, the people swear by the gameplay. But objectively, I want to know: Is the game finished, or should I keep waiting. I did try to run the game briefly, and I was disappointed by the overall laggy interface, as well as freezing between states. For example, loading up the lobby for a private game, I got stuck "user authenticated" screen, and clicking to choose my commander's starting location resulted in a 4 minute long wait before my commander spawned, after which the UI didn't bother to appear. I'm not sure if these problems are Linux specific, as I don't use Windows anymore and can't compare. However, I do recall trying out the alpha about a year ago on Linux, when it ran decently enough, despite the performance issues. (Messages seem to indicate struggles with Coherent UI, but why didn't these issues occur a year ago, I wonder?) So for the members of this forum who have been diligently playing throughout the prerelease, I'm asking you whether this game is worthy of being called a released game, or should I just wait another year before trying to play? (And whether it's just the Linux version that needs the polish.) I apologize if threads like this have been created in abundance lately. I've only done a brief search, but this is quite a busy forum to trawl through.
