Hi there WeylandYutani, I can understand how you must feel but must realise that this is a very very early build. Whenever I'm in a beta, even an open beta i expect to go into the game and everything to be incomplete and broken. The purpose of allowing us to have access to the beta is for the developers to get to know how the main game mechanics work. What should be changed. Does the user interface work well and do users find it easy to navigate around. All the gloss & filling comes later. For it being in the stage that it is at I think its rather good for a closed beta. Alot of games in development go into their development stages at different intervals, for instance, when I'm beta testing for EA a lot of the games foundations are in place, the mechanics are in place and the UI is mostly complete. Different companies offer there products for people to try at different times. Some when its bare bones, (I have tested a game where even the textures were not added yet.. Blue Blob pushing other blobs about) and others where you could mistake it for being a final product. In my experience there has even been a few that have stayed in beta for the entire lifespan of the game. What I'm saying is beta's are different experiences from one another, But never really expect to go in with a near complete game. From what the devs have learnt so far is that we wanted more ships, more goodies to level up to. The strategies players are making. From this they then better understand how to gear the game into something we can all enjoy. As it's to be a F2P game this is very important time for a developer. I myself thank you for even being part of this little group of Space Sluggers that go logger head whenever we have the chance. All I can say to you WeylandYutani, is to continue to help this game grow into something tremendous. Continue to have your passionate attitude to push developers to make bigger & better games for us. Let them know when things are wrong and what isn't working, but please.. give them the time needed. Dreadnought 2.0 is on the horizon and I see many epic things heading our way. Alot good & some may even turn out to be bad, but without your voice & mine, how will the developers know when things are going wrong. Again, I thank you for your input and hope you continue to play this brilliant game with me. The foundations have been laid, let's make this game go to great heights together, as a community.
