Just checked this out again now that it's fully released and I dunno it's pretty much what you would expect. I'm never going to play something like this competitively so it's a little upsetting there is no proper single player campaign, I'll probably play through a little galactic war anyway to get my monies worth. The whole server game stuff or however it's handled really gives me the shits though, and I still run into fucking interface issues with the camera getting stuck zoomed in or things lagging out or I don't know it's something new everytime - In all these cases the usual solution is to quit out and start again, unfortunately i think that just records whatever map I was on as a loss though and it takes a LOT of motivation to reboot the game at that point. When I first booted it up I got an unskippable opening cut scene which was fine if the youtube player with them announcing the changes wasn't running simultaneously in the background - it's those things. I guess you get what you pay for though and you can't expect triple A delivery every time out of a kickstarter launched game.
edit - This hasn't really topped the steam top sellers as much as you might expect and the full release has felt super quiet, but I really think that at this point they probably actually made their majority of sales during the early access period - which is kind of interesting to me in terms of when a studio might decide to call it done and move on etc. (not to say anything about this release, I just think in general it's interesting.)
I bought the game due to the idea of fighting across a solar system and crashing moons into planets. All that is in there unfortunately are the camera controls just awful, I can't shake the feeling that I would enjoy the game more if it was on a flat rather than spherical plane but then it would just be supreme commander.
I will continue to play the game more to see if I can get used to the camera or find the sweet spot in the settings but I'm skeptical.
Im pretty sure you can pretty much entirely control the camera with the middle mouse button? I've definitely found that relatively smooth and simple.
