Ashes of the Singularity : Escalation : Inception

Is anyone here still playing that game? How is it going with all the updates? Can it scratch the SupCom itch, or shall we all stick to FAF?

I don't think anyboody that's too into FAF plays or likes Ashes that much. It's definitely slowly improving with updates and they have a new guy in charge of development. As a result of that balance has got quite a bit better and he has a lot of ideas on further improving it and usability/UI.

Development has slowed down a little because Stardock are releasing a big Galactic Civilizations III expansion but better modding support has been added lately and in a couple of months a Juggernaut (which are something like a T4) will be added to each faction and a new set of campaign missions with an unconfirmed amount of Dreadnoughts and possibly some new units will be added.

The Vulkan API is supposed to be added in a months too. Supposedly it'll be the first game to have all the relevant APIs implemented.

I think the naval expansion is coming early next year, I guess sales will have an effect how fast things are implemented. Stardock are very good for supporting their titles for a long time.

I guess it boils down to what you want out of Ashes. If you want a game that'll use all your PC's resources, never has sim lag, the biggest maps, really good AI (for an RTS) and a great engine you should take a look at it.

If you want the depth and all the different ways FA allows you to play, Ashes isn't there yet.

You should probably take a look again at the end of the year and see how it's progressed and what's upcoming to it.

Ashes is completly different game. Dependent on map control.

Supcom is only one unique RTS where you can win without map control.
