    Read this before you play the game.

    This game has a tag that says "free-to-play", which is true, it is indeed FREE to play. But what you dont know till you're already inside, is that it is also massively Pay-to-Win.

    In my time playing VEGA Conflict, (on browser before the steam release) there are 3 kinds of players; Coiners (spend real money, and LOTS of it), Scripters (cheaters/hackers), and those who actually play for free.

    The PRO's of this game;

    1) Great visuals, especially since the steam release
    2) Gameplay is easy to learn but near impossible to master, meaning that there is always someone out there better than you.
    3) Each fvf (pvp fleet battles) is like a game of chess, make a wrong move, your ships go down quick.
    4) You are free to customise your ships/base however you want, with a plethora of weapons, armor, shields, and special equipment, and the battles that follow with these ships will be decided by your skill and your fleet's arms and armaments.

    CONS;
    1) Kixeye (the almighty developer) got greedy, or so allege the great majority of the players, and they keep proving us right with their schemes to get you to spend real money, which the coiners do, and they get WAY ahead of the free-to-play people, and abuse it. In other words, there is HEAVY imbalance of power in this game. In other words, the rich get ahead, and leave you in the dust.
    2) The monthly events that kixeye throws at us are getting increasingly hard for f2p players to keep up with, while the coiners simply dish out some money and intant-repair their fighting fleets and just rake up the event points, and get the event ship/weapons which are available for just those few days.
    3) The worst thing about this game is something that kixeye wont change, and that is the behaviour of the players. It can be the coiners gloating about the sheer advantage of power they possess over you, or it could be that they just derive pleasure from attacking you everyday, because maybe they feel they have something to prove. Who knows? I've seen too many people use just the most racist, offensive language at you, either because you are new, because you attacked them once, or whatever else. (They often start the fight in the first place).
    4) The politics. Kixeye introduced "Alliances" some months ago, and now if the player of one alliance steals resources of the other, a MAJOR dialogue is opened in the game chat between the leaders of both alliances over freaking 200k in resources.

    Whats that? Report them to Kixeye? lol you think that does anything? There were rumors floating around that kixeye un-banned cheaters because they started coining before they were banned, or something like that. Do I believe that? I dont know, its just a rumor. But who knows for sure...

    This used to be a good game, and if you ask anyone who was playing before Carriers were introduced, most will agree. (not the coiners obviously. Well, maybe some of them...)

    Pretty long review, I know, but seriously, unless you are super-rich, the playing field is ALMOST NEVER level or equal. There are dozens of games out there that deserve a download more than this game.
