So, the big announcement is: we have decided that the current game setup - world map, modern units etc is rather boring, so to spice things up we want to change the settings to the Star Wars universe, with the map of the 'Galaxy far, far away' and Imperial/Rebel units instead of the boring-ass tanks and infantry. The game name will also change - to Starwind. So far you can only sample this new development in terms of rare units, with everything else is coming tomorrow!

Anyway, seriously... The current version is the 1.0 release candidate, and is rather identical to the previous one, except we fixed some bugs and added the new medal coming after Gold: Crimson (because Platinum is lame).

The actual v1.0 is coming tomorrow. Not much will change for the current players, since all of you will get the special 'Founder' status and 100% free game for life (and a nice little trophy for your profile too). Starting from tomorrow, new players will have an option between playing the game for free (which will remain entirely possible), paying for subscription (which will include all extra features, but for a limited time) or buying separate 'packs' of extra features. Try not to speculate too much on the nature of these features, everything will be revealed tomorrow.

So, dear players, your accounts are now rather precious, and we would highly recommend to make sure you can access them in case you forget your password. Please fill in a valid e-mail or Facebook Id in your profiles.

That's all for now, cheers!

UPDATE:
All upgrades have been refunded!

Yes the starwind thing is an obvious April fools joke.

Concerning a subscription, if it was a one off payment, more people would be likely to pay so "packs" of features is the better idea i think.

Crimson medals, finally red is not a evil colour! wait...so many things to do D:

I think Starwind and Sar Wars is a true part of this one, it's a second part is, obviously, 1st of Aprill material.

Crimson medals are already working, so you should get them already today if you have enough stats.

Ok, i really hope that you are joking because i'm not here to play some futuristic star wars strategy game. also with refunded upgrades i can't buy all that i had before so i would be nice to reverse that.
edit: well of course you are joking but anyway reverse refunding upgrades, because i bought my upgrades long time ago when they were a lot cheaper (infantry speed for example was ~10k Sp) it's not fair to make us buy them again at higher price

Well, prices changed, some things got more expensive, some less, so you're gonna have to choose from the new ones.

Sure it is fair, the game was in Beta. The whole point of our playing was to help figure out things for when it went live, like how much the upgrades should cost.

I see that some medal values have also changed. Formerly you got a gold medal for killing 10k infantry, now you get it for 20k infantry. I have the gold medal with 13k killed infantry - what will happen when I hit 20k?

Sure is exciting times here, can't wait for the official v1.0 launch. By the way, why did you decide to make Combinator, Lucky Bastard, and Ironfist, regular, non-unlockable strategies?

Can you tell us what exactly is in the "full package"? I tried to find any info on that on the website but couldn't find anything. I'm Just interested in the monetizing-system.
