I started playing this game a week ago. I am really disappointed. The resource requirements for structures is way off compared to what can be produced and how long it takes to produce. And it is way too hard to advance research trees.
In all this game is slow, the resource production is slow, gold is slow, and too much depends on popularity (very confusing). Attacking one wolf den wiped out more than 20 soldiers. I'm stuck in neutral and can't seem to do anything now because of how long it takes to gain levels to get research points and the crazy resource to structure requirements.
Perhaps I'm missing something. But what tells me this game is screwed up is the fact that there aren't very many people online (around the globe) playing this game at any given time. A massive letdown. I was expecting something a little better given how good Star Trek Online is.
If anyone has any tips or pointers I'm missing out on, please let me know. Although given the lack of activity on this game, I'm not holding out much hope of any feedback.
