At that time the game was "down for mainteance", i.e. wasn't accepting new members. But I was just curious yesterday and.... voila! Welcome in SWC!
I'm a total newbie, I have barely created a new character, so don't saturate me with questions... my impression of the game:
-it's huge... 1200 members so far in one Galaxy, with dozens (hundreds?) of planets, cities, citizens, ships, vehicles, items...
-gives you that "Frontier:Elite" feel, the freedom of choosing your career and traveling through the (in)finite space
-plenty of characteristics, customizable characters
-many factions that post their job ads, recruitment ads etc.
As I'll be "immersing" myself in the game world in the following days (hey, I have to test, maybe it will turn out to be worth of my time?) I'm going to post some more thoughts and experiences.
So, if you'll ever bump into a guy named Riik Rola, don't kill him
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...
