QBRanger December 26 2011 8:57 PM EST

Ill give it a try tonight.

Thanks for the link.

AbbathorX December 26 2011 9:16 PM EST

Looks like it might be interesting.

Hey Ranger let us know if it's worthwhile, keeping in mind that I will never ever ever spend any real money on it ;p

Ancient Anubis December 26 2011 9:29 PM EST

that's fine but just means u have to realise things come slower but u can get good stuff just takes time

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 26 2011 9:53 PM EST

Can you describe the game?

Ancient Anubis December 26 2011 10:08 PM EST

a space shooting game with aliens and pvp, has mining, drone developemnet, variety of weapons lasers rockets mines etc plays in browser window

Quyen December 27 2011 4:51 AM EST

Sounds interesting, im in :D

Ancient Anubis December 27 2011 5:28 AM EST

i'm on server global america 3

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 27 2011 6:34 AM EST

I actually played this a while ago on US 1 (East) and I thought it was a lot of fun. Reminds me a bit of AI Wars and Eve Online. Each server is apparently separate so I was able to create a new character on Global America 3 and put it in the VRU (though to be honest I don't even remember what my other character was in, nor have I bothered to check while writing this.)

I'll try to get back into it, see if we can get a few of us playing.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 27 2011 11:29 AM EST

I'll give it a shot when I get some free time :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 29 2011 2:36 PM EST

Bump for more people to see and start playing, I got up to level 8 so far and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

I'll warn you right now not to make the mistake I did and go straight for the best ship in-game money could buy over getting the best gear you can first. My ship went boom many times.

AbbathorX December 29 2011 11:43 PM EST

Not bad so far, other than the guys in the gigantic space fortresses camping in the second beginner map ganking all the noobs in our tiny ships.

Gathering the money to upgrade my sad little space boat is sorta slow, but it's my first day and my space refinery isn't fully operational yet.

Is there a clan for us in the Venus company yet?

Windwalker December 30 2011 12:25 AM EST

switched from earth to venus.
cost me 5k uri and half my honor!
been a long time since I played, will need some help.

Ancient Anubis December 30 2011 1:31 AM EST

i'll start a clan soon most likely. it costs u 50k i think it is to join which may take new players bit to get

Ancient Anubis December 30 2011 1:44 AM EST

clan started Called it

Soul Carnage

{SC} is its tag

remember the server is global America 3 and if u do wish to try please join via my link just need your email and i'll send the invite to u.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 30 2011 6:10 AM EST

Yeah the guys in FE gear (Full Elite) ganking all the newbies is kind of annoying but once you get your skylab refineries up and running money starts coming in a lot faster.

I'll join the clan now, and I'll hold on to extra money in case anyone needs some to join.

BadFish December 30 2011 3:17 PM EST

I joined the wrong company, Earth instead of Venus. Is there any way to switch or should I start a new account?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 30 2011 3:22 PM EST

You can switch but it costs Uridium which is quite valuable. I'd suggest starting a new account if you havent got very far yet.

BadFish December 30 2011 3:23 PM EST

I'll start new. I only played for about 5 minutes ;)

Windwalker December 30 2011 9:22 PM EST

I'm disappointed.Won't let me move my ship to that server.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 30 2011 10:57 PM EST

Each server is independent of each other. I found this out when I switched from US East to Global America. The upside was I got free premium access for an unknown amount of time, its nice.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 30 2011 11:41 PM EST

Where is the hangar...

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 31 2011 12:32 AM EST

never mind, I figured out what all I was missing.

BadFish December 31 2011 3:45 AM EST

How do you tell what server you're in? Both accounts I started never gave me any selection for what server to be in and I'd like to know if I'm in the wrong one before I get into it and don't want to restart.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 31 2011 3:49 AM EST

You choose with the account creation. Its a drop down menu underneath the spot where you make your password and stuff.

Ancient Anubis December 31 2011 4:10 AM EST

whose alexstewart4

please post your usernames here when u decide to join the clan so i can accept u otherwise i may deem u unworthy :)

Ancient Anubis December 31 2011 4:26 AM EST

ah gohan you've been accepted that's 3 and growing

Ancient Anubis December 31 2011 4:38 AM EST

if u play today guys there's bonus present boxes out that when collected give u good great ammo etc

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 31 2011 7:45 AM EST

Yeah alexstewart4 is Gohan.

For me, I'm actually using the link to DarkObrit through Google Chromes app list. Dark Orbit is one of the games you can install to your homepage so I did that a few months back but I never played it much till AA mentioned it. Anyway when I go there it literally allows me to select any of the ~30 servers and keeps all the ones that I have an account on a different color and at the top of the list. As for the rest of you I am unsure how you can determine your server location >_>

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 31 2011 10:11 AM EST

I'm trying to finish all the winter quests right now and I'm down to all the ones that require an outfit (party) of 2 or more members, so someone come play with me! You don't even need to be where I am, I just need to be in an outfit so I can finish the quests.

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] December 31 2011 12:02 PM EST

If you accept AA's invite it auto selects the server for you, you just have to choose the correct faction. I never even had an option of which server to select.

BadFish December 31 2011 1:33 PM EST

Aw man... so i must be in the wrong server... and got like 20 of those presen.t boxes toon

BadFish December 31 2011 1:35 PM EST

present boxes too* lol now I know not to post on my phone.

Windwalker December 31 2011 4:21 PM EST

dang guess if I want to play gonna have to start over with a tin-can.

Ancient Anubis January 1 2012 4:04 AM EST

got 4 now by the way who is DΞSΦLATIΦЙ

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 1 2012 6:34 AM EST

The guy with the funny looking name? I have no idea.

BadFish January 1 2012 4:47 PM EST

So ive been playing and its fun, but it didn't seem to save any of the stuff i did yesterday... when i logged back in today i was level 1 again from 5 and all of the quests i had done were back in the quest book. Anyone else had this problem?

BadFish January 1 2012 4:49 PM EST

Wow. Scratch that. I was logged into the wrong account. /facepalm

BadFish January 1 2012 5:02 PM EST

Has anyone else noticed that when you pick up quests they usually don't show up in your quest book on the play screen? I can still do them but it usually won't track them. Seems to be a massive amount of lag when it comes to picking up and tracking quests.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 1 2012 6:16 PM EST

I dont have nearly as much lag on the quests as that, but it takes a second for the page to update them then I have them in game. Its about 5-10 second pause for me before it updates in game. Perhaps its just server lag? I have no idea where Global America 3 is located.

BadFish January 1 2012 6:24 PM EST

Well, i can live with it since I can still complete the quests just fine. Could I get an invite for the clan now?

Admiralkiller January 1 2012 6:43 PM EST

Link me pls

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 1 2012 6:48 PM EST

Go to the clans page then go to the clan list and look for Soul Carnage and apply, AA will accept you when he sees it.

Ancient Anubis January 2 2012 11:54 PM EST

i'm in chat for the next few hours give us call if u want an invite and check it out

(0.0) January 4 2012 6:32 PM EST

When I click start, a black screen pops up but nothing shows up.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 4 2012 8:40 PM EST

Do you have no-script or anything like that installed in your browser? Or maybe you don't have the right plugin for the game.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 7 2012 7:10 PM EST

For anyone interested in making a first time purchase in the game I have 2 promo codes they gave me to give to a 10% bonus (or off or something like that), just CM me and let me know.

Admiralkiller January 7 2012 7:18 PM EST

I also have a cpl promotion codes if his get used up.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 8 2012 7:13 AM EST

lol if anyone is interested I happened to snag a leonov for 123,456 creds in the auctions this morning (between 6-7am EST), so if you're interested in a better ship, there is a good time to try to snag one.

Quyen January 8 2012 7:50 AM EST

i started.. my name is -Quyen- because someone took Quyen already :(

Lochnivar January 8 2012 11:16 AM EST

Decided to mess around with this a bit... under the highly original name of:
-Lochnivar-

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 8 2012 11:46 AM EST

Loch I've seen you in game a few times now, I thought that was you.

Q find me in game or whisper me

Ancient Anubis January 9 2012 10:16 PM EST

there is a clan chat on the action page just go through the icon looking for chat and scroll acroos to the room that says SC

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 11 2012 4:02 PM EST

God their support team is awful. I registered and started playing the game through the app in the chrome store a while back which I just found out now they don't actually own.

I cant actually log into the game any other way then through this app, and when I tried the forgotten password function it never sends it to me. I'm basically locked out of being able to secure my account right now which is making me not want to play (as much as I do want to play)

If I have to start a new account because they can't help me do something as simple as changing my registered email address to what it should actually be, and help me make sure my account is safe and protected, then I'm going to be quite sad indeed because I'll probably quit. $20 and 160+ hours of my life down the drain.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 11 2012 8:36 PM EST

Yerp basically I'm boned, I was told by one of the forum mods (after 3 days mind you) that if an account is made through the app, there is no other way for it to log in.

So basically: Cant change my name, cant change my email address, cant change my password, and I have no idea if the app is even trustworthy.

So its either proceed with the same account and forget about the possible dangers, or jump ship onto a new account and lose everything.

Sigh.

Admiralkiller January 11 2012 8:37 PM EST

I get an error when trying to log in right now.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 11 2012 9:04 PM EST

I don't know whats up with that AK, I can log in just fine... only I have to log in through this app -_-

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 12 2012 1:14 AM EST

Finally got someone who knew what they were talking about through support. Indeed I am boned because I registered through the App, and that is the only way I'll ever be able to play unless I create a new account. Though they assured me that the app itself is safe and I have nothing to worry about, I simply don't have access to certain functions I normally would like changing my user name/email/password.

BadFish January 12 2012 1:46 PM EST

I've also been getting an error when trying to log in, for over a day now.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 12 2012 2:56 PM EST

I made a second account (not through the chrome app), I think I see the error you guys were talking about. It happened to me a few times as well, but I would just hit back and try again and after 2-3 attempts it would usually work.

Ancient Anubis January 12 2012 4:13 PM EST

i use firefox and seem to have no probs logging in?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 12 2012 5:50 PM EST

I was using FF at the time, I only use chrome for when I need to use the app.

BadFish January 12 2012 8:38 PM EST

It's actually an error when i try to select the server, after logging in. But I've made countless attempts with the same result.

BadFish January 12 2012 10:13 PM EST

I managed to log in! But now there's another issue: I'm definitely getting credits out of nowhere. I had 3.3 million logging in after a roughly 2-day break. I had MAYBE a million last time i played. Also i have 212 energy for the galaxy gate generator! There's NO WAY I had that much 2 days ago. Where is this stuff coming from?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 13 2012 4:06 AM EST

the 200 extra energy was a gift they gave out to all players a few days ago along with a 7 day 50% honor booster for free.

As far as the credits are concerned.. I have no idea, you've stumped me. But!! There is a way you can find out, the game tracks every single one of your earnings. Go to the uridium tab, there you will see banking and balance on the left hand side. Hit balance, that's basically your account history.

Lists what you sell, aliens you destroy, boxes you pick up, when you started lab upgrades, what you sold, and has a + and - for both the Creds and Uri you got for all those things.

BadFish January 13 2012 3:30 PM EST

I managed to log in that one time yesterday, but I'm getting errors again. Going on 10 attempts now, still no go.

Lochnivar January 13 2012 3:33 PM EST

I get those errors at home, but never at work... using firefox in both places.

I'm not sure if it is a result of history settings... the work computer never tracks history whereas my home one does.

Ancient Anubis January 15 2012 1:17 AM EST

its a shame u guys are having so much trouble i have all my settings saved and automatic log in and never seem to have an issue at least bot in the past 2 weeks :P

BadFish January 18 2012 10:02 PM EST

My problems were less troublesome for a while... i'd usually get one error and be able to log in after that.... but today i've been trying to log in all day and I can't get in. I get 3 errors, then it locks me out because it says i've been getting my password wrong (i haven't). I've tried doing it 3 or 4 times now it just keeps giving me errors and locking me out...

Admiralkiller January 19 2012 5:58 AM EST

I think it's possible that it's the server. I was having problems in U.S 3 so i tried a different server and had no problems. I then tried the U.S server and got errors.

What do I know tho.

BadFish January 19 2012 10:26 AM EST

Is it worth trying to get the issue addressed through the forums? I've heard the support team is notoriously bad. Which is odd, because they must rake in a TON of money.

Noone else is having these issues?
