    Is anyone playing this? Any thoughts of playing it?

    I just came across it the other day and it looks interesting. Almost a cross between EVE and Empyrion.

    Whoops - missed this as I've mostly been using Discord not the forums lately. I've been playing this since pre-Alpha (its currently in Alpha 2) and its looking really promising! Would be great if there is a TOG presence in this game as its definitely beneficial to team/clan up.

    If any TOGgers want to join up in game please let me know. its currently a $60 buy in for Alpha 2 (https://www.dualthegame.com/en/pledge/ (Dual Universe - Pledge)). This is the "industry" update. The PvP update (will be a huge one) is due in around 6 months and then beta soon afterwards. See https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/ (Dual Universe - News) for more info on the current state of the game.

    The server is typicically up for ~3 days a week (https://www.dualthegame.com/en/server-status/ (Dual Universe - Server Status))

    I'm watching this with interest. I won't play until it reaches at least beta stage. Maybe I'm old but I tend to miss the days when only a chosen few played beta and release date was exciting. Times have changed.

    Beta+ will be a good time to start as that's when the PvP (ship-to-ship and player-to-player) updates will come and the game will completely change from how it is now. Plus there will almost certainly be a wipe.

    I will also have a few beta keys then for interested Toggers, that came with the access packs.

    I generally agree with the "wait until release date" thing :) Though this is a complex and challenging game to both get working and then get working well, so I fully understand the long alpha/beta testing phases.

    Yeah I bought it but haven't made it on yet......just noticed I was feeling particularly bullish and bought the patron pack so I have a few Beta keys to be gifted.
