Sounds pretty cool, reminds me of Robosport.
Didn't see a thread about this so i never heard of it until a couple of friend's mentioned it this weekend. Its teams of 4, turn based similar to x-com style, both teams everyone has 20s to make their move and then you watch the resolution unfold. First team to 5 kills wins, if you are killed you take a turn to respawn.
Its in open alpha right now so you can check it out for free. Enjoying it enough I'll probably buy the minimum once open alpha ends, which I'm not seeing where its listed at now, but there are different packages and I believe the minimum one is $10.

Yeah, you could say its similar to hots in that there are no items, you can only change perks to your abilities before the match, so its kind of like the talent system.
I have been playing this quite a bit and I have to say I enjoy it a lot. Very diverse amount of heros and the games go pretty rapidly. Has some of the robo rally board game fun of you program in your moves and then sit back and see what actually happens where stuff can go very very far awry.
Oh I have to say this game if you have some team mates on voice chat gets pretty amazing. Having the goblin team with a rampart on voice chat allows you to set up mine fields and then have rampart harpoon them through the entire thing for some massive damage yanks.
Beta starts for this today for anybody who got an invite or did one of the pre-purchase options.
Will follow this. Can't finf it on Steam yet (just some VR viewer). Anyone know if it will be released there?
Well its trion so it launches through their portal glyph. Can't remember if I've seen rift on steam before or not, if so, its likely, otherwise probably not.
I did do the $10 pack to get instant beta access, it also gives you $10 worth in game currency, and I am really enjoying the game despite the player pool is still really small so friends and I got matched up against a team of devs and got stomped.
I like how you have a seperate elo for each character.
This a waste as a solo player?
I actually haven't played it just solo yet, but I think they do try and match up parties with other parties because I see in global chat ppl say they get matched in a minute and when I'm queued as a group wait time is closer to 5. Not that voice communication is that vital, if you want to coordinate with teammates you can type to them while watching the resolution unfold.
I don't really understand how Trion is still around
They have some novel ideas and their games are polished enough compared to a lot of the rubbish out there. I still like Rift enough to hop on an alt every now and then, was my favorite MMO since EQ1 easily.
Actually I'd love to see them take on a CoH-style MMO, CoH had tons of potential that the company decided to completely ignore, and Marvel Heroes just doesn't really do anything too special.
Atlas Reactor | May Producers LetterInstead, we’ve decided to change the way we offer Atlas Reactor to you, shifting from a Free to Play game to a premium digital game (aka “buy-to-play”). In other words, in order to play the game, you will need to purchase it. Purchasing the game will give you access to all current and future Freelancers.
Defiance was a bust sure. Rift, aimed high, and moderate success as noted. Initial was probably a failure, but they farmed it well. it stuck around for a while.
Archeage, Devilian. Buying Korean games, and porting them over to the US on the cheap, is profitable.
Trove. Pretty sure this was a huge success. probably cost them like almost nothing. Dev team of like 10 people.
That said. Moba's are stupid saturated. I don't know why anyone would make one atm. Would have thought people would have learned that with Smite, and the DC moba.
Super stoked I get the full game now having only spent $10. Friends and I are spending more and more time in this, its a nice change of pace.
When I get home I'll add my glyph tag to the op and add anyone else's tag if they'd like.
Wish someone would remake demigod that was such a great take on mobas and had great ideas in it.
Looks like atlas reactor is going up on the steam early access.

If anybody is interested in giving this a try the above is a 3 day refer a friend link so feel free to give it a shot. Its a very different game so good idea to give it a try first to see if you like it or not.
A new support champ was added last night Dr Finn. Pretty amusing guy he is a merman looking person with robotic exoskeleton legs. Support wise played 4 games with him last night and won all but one of them so he seems pretty solid although has a lot of fish puns. One thing he lacks over other support is free action support moves/auto attack/default healing moves. His big support powers are on longish cool downs 3-4 turns depending how they are modded.
That said his powers are worthy of the cool down his heal is a cone heal spray that hits anything in the cone in his line of sight for 24. It also heals you for a lesser amount and can be modded to change it to heal you more or others more or other effects. It is pretty long range and has a LARGE cone if your team works with you this is close to a quark ult every 3 turns. His other main support ability is a bubble shield. By default it has a longish cool down of 4 turns but shields for 40 and in the blast phase hits anything adjacent to the target for 10 damage and slows them. This is stronger than even the catalyst turtletech its pretty great for keeping a dude up who otherwise is smoked or for throwing onto a charging front liner and let them maul faces with abandon.
His ult is pretty good unlike the other support no healing/shielding on it by default but its a 3x3 foot print cast over walls action that causes a huge maelstrom to appear that sucks everybody in like the black hole from helio and does 30 damage to everybody in it. Given this can be done totally with no LOS I was getting good use out of it. You can also mod it to heal you a good amount for every target hit which allows DR fin to be a pretty strong combat medic so he can sit out there and line his cone heals/damages up.
For those interested in checking this out and I do recommend it there is a free beta weekend coming up this weekend starting friday that is open to any who wants to check it out just hit the trion site for info and client download.
