I’m stuck living in the 3rd world and the game was FINALLY released here on Friday 25 May. During the weekend I had a good number of games and it seems to be working pretty well, the major problem I’ve seen with my compatriots is not being able to connect to everybody else because they haven’t opened up ports 6100-6200, once they figure that out everybody’s problems magically go away.
As for the game and support Stardock have done exceptionally well, where they’ve had problems they’ve admitted it, and let us know what they’re working on and when it should be fixed by, which is a hell of a lot more feedback than ANY other game developers ever give. Patches have come out very quickly and it looks like Stardock is working with as many people as they can to work out solutions to the multiplayer connectivity problems they’ve had.
I’d be happy to get an expansion if they released it, but please release it everywhere at the same time, sitting in the 3rd world waiting an extra month and a half to get a game that everybody else is playing is incredibly frustrating.
Apart from that, good work to Stardock, I know you guy’s have got a lot of flack in the forums, but from what I’ve seen so far the game seems to be exceptionally well balanced and if I can connect to multiplayer from the digital dark zone in the 3rd world then I’m pretty sure most people should be able to if they open those ports.
