The mountains are out of focus... Are they out of focus when you look at them IRL from a distance??
The Empire Game is so fun to play, and with friends in your team makes the game so epic! ;D!
Sh!t I have turns waiting...
It's not intentionally out of focus or blurry. It may seem that way, but I'm fairly certain it's just the way it has been digitally painted. Basically, it's either a deliberate style and the artist didn't wish to refine it any further, or he / she was just too lazy.
Either way, the backdrop painting itself is rather nice. If I was asked to critique the overall news post image, I'd probably agree with Bilge on a number of things - but I haven't. And to be honest, it's really pedantic of him to pick fault with it, considering it may not have any other purpose than to make this news post a little more colourful.
Not keen on the website though. Labelling any part of a website as "start page" is just bad in general. The site feels rather void overall - but I've been putting that down to a lack of being able to see the main game. Maybe they should consider placing a flash placeholder where the main game would be, matching its dimensions. Could help make the site more visually appealing, even in the BETA stage.
To be honest, any problems I have with the site itself I've already put down to the game being incomplete and the whole thing in BETA.
Instead of critiquing it with words, I've made a mock up of some improvements that I would personally enjoy. It's nothing amazing - and it's certainly not any kind of implication that "this is what they should do". But here it is anyway:
(Bigger version here)
I felt the black void was a bit much - and the logo in the middle could be gently pulsating or something.
It's quick, messy and I'm no expert - but maybe it will inspire. Maybe the entire website is a placeholder and maybe I just wasted some time . Either way, I don't mind haha. Maybe, just maybe, people like Bilge will be happier with some of the "improvements" I'd personally go for .
EDIT: I also keep getting the registration error.

Maybe an "inconspicuous" mode?

Compare sim city 4 to sim city societies, the empire game is sim city societies.
> Implying Sim City 4 was good.

Edit: not to be a douche or anything or cocky but wargames i was in the top 150. And, this game seems VERY similar, same units and land and conquring and stuff like that

Lesson for hater nubs who wouldnt know the first thing about making anything on a computer other than a folder.
Code > Graphics @ start.
Nice start, good to see the website is slowly seeing some additions
Wish I could play more myself, but more an action junky, need lots of real time moving etc.
Maybe itll grow on me?
Keep up the great work guys, cant wait to see the show!
