Erik, I'm requesting a screen shot for the new weapons.....if you've already added them.  I would really like to drool over it.

Can I pre-order the expansion now?

Things are going in the better direction. Since we might have carriers, will we soon have motherships as well?

Please have an extensive beta.

This expansion will truly make an already great game, into something incredible.

These 'phased beam' weapons sound like they might just be the much requested, solid laser like weapon that stays in one beam from the weapon to the target, YAY!

I'd suggest that it is unlikely one person (the developer Elliot) alone can achieve the game balance required to result in a classic title. That could only come from thousands of hours of multi-user testing of user made mods with feedback to the modders. The modders don't have the ability to game balance, so it is unlikely that, in your words, "this expansion will truly make an already great game, into something incredible".

We're all subjective on this and while I agree that game balance is still a target for some time to come I also share Facedrop's enthusiasm....and I say this while near some unknown ale in an unknown cargobay with the emotional chip disabled so that Ed will not strech my Igardian beard.

Erik, thanks for the teasers.

Looking forward to the expansion, and my compliments on the professional way you evolve DW and adress suggestions, without
ignoring the limitations of a small dev team and budget.

You are truly developing a gem here.

Difficulty setting, better diplomacy, 'spheres of contor', etc. Very neat. Really looking forward to it. By the way, in my own honest opinion, this game is already a classic. Without and errors and mistakes, pure 100% game efficiency, marvelous design and presentation, all nice but a game may still have some faults and be a classic. I love the feeling I get from playing this one. It's got character and already a special place in my hearts' gaming corner. I can't stand real time strategy games. Can't play any other RTS but this one. This is different. Very different. It is, most certainly, shaping up to be a true classic by the highest of standards, got some way to go, yes....proper game balance may still lack at certain points but cmon... its a bloody good game to play!

That is NOT Shark7... that is... I cannot believe it...
How did my last 'blind date' get into IGard's cargo bay?
And where were those Bounty Hunters Igard hired then? Hmmm?

Umm, remind me to NEVER let you set me up with a date.

The AI is significantly improved (especially in Diplomacy and Fleet Handling) and there is now a separate Difficulty Slider.

With all the new features, will there be a corresponding jump in CPU performance retired?

I'm interested in the performance in Legends too. Hopefully the CPU load won't jump too much.

Have they started beta testing yet?
Or
Are they in-house testing?

I think we're due a bit of news. Seems as though things are moving alot slower than expected.

Personally, I've no problem with that. I think they should take as much time as they need.

Yap, better take the time to avoid the bugs beforehand than to fix them after the release.

I agree with both of you; I was just curious.
I want them to do it right.

But for a change, I am actually excited about the release...

We concur; Less bugs, less rant, more awesome. Still, more news and screenshots would be great for the shakes.
