Can you send an email to jake@aurochdigital.com with the code you're trying to use and we'll double check it's still free?

Thanks a lot, and apologies you've been unable to access the beta so far.

Wish I could beta, but I have neither the time nor the Windows system to do so. Thanks to everyone who is testing for helping improve the game!

Seconding that! Fantastic feedback so far which will benefit the game hugely when it comes to release :)

Cool. I'm just trying to wrap my head around what's been fixed, what needs to be verified and what is still outstanding.

Thanks!

I got in some beta play today with Randy making notes - he will pass those along - much better than last time I played! Prettier screens, smoother play.

I do hope the defending AI continues to get smarter as the game matures; I played the Ogre and pretty much walked through the AI defense on Mark III Attack, even with poor die rolls. It needs not to set up units where I can kill them at the end of my optimum entry move, and it needs not to park units on my optimum path to the CP - that's begging to be rammed.

Having said that, I did not achieve a complete victory . . . after I lost my last gun there was one surviving Missile Tank that was completely competent at avoiding my attempt to corner it, and it stung me badly before I escaped. I hope its commander gets leave and a promotion.

Anybody managed a complete victory in that scenario?

I played thru the Mark III attacking twice and easily scored complete victories every time. Not sure why but my Mark III started at M4 and that made a big difference.

That was, however, a week or so ago so I'm sure they are tweaking the AI and it's not the same AI you played against.
