That actively ties resource gathering into combat, making for more dynamic choices. Instead of "resource here come and take" you have to think  "Ok I can use that, but is it worth it right now?" And if it requires workers or population to run that building "Can I spare the manpower?" and if population is tied to Army recruitment, "Am I training troops? Can I afford both the Financial cost and the Manpower cost to get this resource or should I keep staking units instead?" The thought of "Is it worth it to me?" should be part of every decision made.

This is exactly what I meant in the closed forum when I mentioned "interesting choices".  Wiid expanded nicely on the idea.

Welcome Wiid.  :)

I sent out keys to the second wave of beta testers March 13, but I know at least one person didn't get their key. If you're one of the following people, and didn't get the email with your key, please pm me.

yor-nemisis
Tito
Phizzle

Also still waiting for NDA from Mumei and Huiyu. Again pm me if you didn't receive it.

With the cancellation of early access, we'll instead be doing a larger beta program, and throwing it open to all the people on Steam. Iceberg are setting up a system for handling the OE beta, and beta's for several other games they're publishing, so we'll transition over to using that when it's ready. I will post details then.
