I keep getting the same problem. "Ugh" is right.

I think the art style is awesome! Looks so good and is perfectly balanced.
The mountains are out of focus... Are they out of focus when you look at them IRL from a distance?? icon_razz.gif

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.

Chill Bilge.

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 icon_razz.gif. 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 icon_smile.gif.

EDIT: I also keep getting the registration error.

Mock up looks good, I agree that the black is kinda dull. However... I play the game mostly at work so things that look as inconspicuous are the best icon_razz.gif

Maybe an "inconspicuous" mode? icon_razz.gif

Im sure this has already been addressed, but smurfing is gonna be the problem with this game. Besides that -- it's really fun.

Imagine something super awesome, then some duche making a simple kiddy version remake that every1 hates, empire is that game.
Compare sim city 4 to sim city societies, the empire game is sim city societies.

> Implying Sim City 4 was good.

hey is it just me, or is this game just like Wargames 2.0? IF so, then im going to rape the beta LOL
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

"Koreans like to take starcraft into their own every day life, where the good south koreans (protoss) and the bad north koreans (zerg) are always fighting, and then the neutral USA (terran) Sits there and watches in amusement, doing absouletly nothing to help solve the issue."

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 icon_smile.gif
Wish I could play more myself, but more an action junky, need lots of real time moving etc. icon_biggrin.gif
Maybe itll grow on me?

Keep up the great work guys, cant wait to see the show!
