@ThomansN: You can download the game once via ubers own downloader that you can get from their page. Once you have it downloaded you can zip the whole game up and name that zip after the version. You can then just unpack that zip wherever you want and play, no install needed. There really is no DRM at all, copy pasting the whole game works totally fine.
Is there a chance to see a different faction someday ? I mean, the game itself is good, not perfect, but i still managed to play 100+ hours with friends... And I wouldn't have if i had to play it alone. But what i mean is having a foe using different units and tactics help a lot in adding a fun and different experience. Right now everybody is pretty much using the same units/build order and well... it became boring.
Let me express my attitude about the game being constantly in flux with tiny patches after release day and not having easily available DRM free setup_[version_number_here].exe for windows and setup_server_[version_number_here].tar.gz for linux:
@Blake00 - I've sent you a PM/email with your key info. :)
@Typhi - We have the ability to have 40 player games, and have opened up servers so that people can run their own. We've seen games of 40 players in both team and free for all. However, these type of games require very high spec servers and machines to play in them and could not make it meet our min spec requirements, or even the most common spec of our players. For that reason, we allow this to be playable for those whose machines can handle it, but in the default game it is not turned on due to most machines not being able to make use of it.

When will we see Galactic War 20vs20 in realtime as promised in the initial Kickstarter? Basically the reason why I backed the game...
Looking forward to more great work from you guys, PA is really awesome :)
that's nice and all but when are you going to refund me for not fulfill my rewards?
It sounds kind of silly to say, but PA really has been a massive part of my life over these last three years. The game itself is one thing, but a far greater sum of this is the community surrounding it, the great friends I've made along the way and experiences I've had.
I'd never have imagined one day getting to meet and spend time with a load of the guys who worked on Total Annihilation, of which I have very fond memories from my childhood.
I feel privileged to have played my small part in the development of this game (the Boom bots are exactly as I left them after twisting Scathis' ear after PAX!) and wanted to extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone at Uber, past and present, for their commitment, dedication and professionalism in the face of what has at times been a very difficult and demanding environment.
Let me take this opportunity to express my dire disappointment on behalf of all of us who backed higher pledges to receive physical rewards.
Even if my primary motivation to do so was to support the existence of the game in the first place, the way it was handled was nothing short of insulting.
Having such a low-quality sack of stuff delivered quickly would have been fine.
Having it delivered in parts if some stuff was still missing would have been fine.
Getting high quality stuff that's at least worth the wait would have been fine.
Instead, after having to wait ALMOST THREE YEARS what we got was the lowest quality excuse for quickly hobbled together stuff I ever saw bearing the name "Collectors Edition". You even cheaped out on a case for the disc.
So does this mean my physical copy of the game is coming? With the game being released almost a year ago I'm getting a bit worried! My details on the uber site are all checked and correct etc.
What do you mean? If you use the launcher, it will download the game for you in the directory of your choosing. That directory all you need to archive. You can copy that to another computer whenever you wish. You don't need the launcher after the game has been installed. Just run the PA.exe directly.
All this time, all these updates -- and there's STILL no way just to download, install and play the game DRM-free. https://store.uberent.com/Download/Install… Still only has a "launcher" download for Windows and Mac. Make the game actually have a downloadable, playable installer. I want to download it, archive it, and be able to play/reinstall in the future without having to interact with your company or servers in any way again.

Thanks for the update! The game is beautiful and while I'm no strategic mastermind (and my computer can't really handle big fancy multiplayer mayhem stuff), it's always a joy to play and to watch!
I just like to say thanks to all of Uber to creating this truly wonderful game. I really love playing it, even while losing. So thanks for making this game. And especially for making it cross-platform and DRM-free as well. Awesome, indeed!
It's been a long ride, thanks for keeping us in the loop.
I ♥ PA
Looking forward to the documentary.
@Lukas - The design of Galactic War has changed considerably throughout development based on player feedback. These were the changes included on the Galactic War update this summer, as well as adding interplanetary fighters, unit cannon, and changing overall balance to help break early orbital stalemate games back in January. The current version of Galactic War does differ from our original ideas, but has proven out to meet the majority of the concerns and requests we received from our players, and create a great learning experience for the new users of the game.
@Carlo - We hope to continue working on the game for as long as possible. We do have one more surprise coming up for KS backers, but want to make sure we have it all finalized before announcing it. :)
@janisozaur - That looks like an error we're currently working with Coherent to resolve. We will continue to push on Coherent to try to get fixes in place, and you should see those updates come online as soon as we get the fixes from them. You can also post on the support forums (https://forums.uberent.com/forums/support.71/) or contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work with you to get exact details to help them with the fix.
Or you know, you could fix major showstoppers preventing from actually using the game in the first place.
I can't wait to see what lies ahead, for both PA and Uber Ent.
Oh John !!!! It's been a long time since i was expecting to have you back !
Yeah PA is really amazing and i would back again if i had to !
Two days ago i played a 5v5 on a large system with asteroids kicking in. I had not realized how epic this game is until i played this game against very skilled players taking advantage of all gameplay features provided by Orbital stuff. I was quickly annihilated but kept watching until the end, and that was just unbelievable. PA has taken Supcom/FA one large step beyhond and it's even more exciting considering how small Uber team was to make this game.
Thank you again John ! Thank you Uber !
So basically everything that was promised is as good as done now? Is there going to be anything after this or is development going on a slow burn from now on?
I hope you're still doing the Galactic War Coop mode promised in the campaign.
