received my beta invite today in time for the server stress-test. managed to get in only a few battles, but i have to say i am stunned this title runs in a browser. normally i wouldn't bother. there is a small client for the FPS portion, i believe, but that takes seconds.
as there is no NDA to speak of (the forums are open), i can say it is not really "just another lobby shooter", exactly. right now, the dev's want everyone jumping into whatever battle they can find on the map for testing balance/bugs, but the "generals" can organize whatever type of assault they wish, with combined arms restrictions etc.
there are very persistent elements built in (wars can last weeks), and it much more closely resembles WWII online than not. this game has great promise, and as they are passing out invites pretty regularly, it would seem like a good idea to sign up and give it a go if you are interested.
