Computer new online game

I found this online game and thought i'd post it for anyone to give it a look

Celetania is a persistent 4X MMOG world.

4X is the synonym for eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate and points out that the game is a combination of commercial development, peaceful expansion and tactical power struggle.

MMOG means Massive Multiplayer Online Game. Thousands of players play simultaneously in a virtual world in this genre. Every action of a player can affect the fate of all other players.


Check it out at www.celetania.com

It looks interesting, but it seems to be half the cost of a full fledged MMPORPG whilst being limited to the sort of game I play where you only spend 5 minutes or so a day.I don't think I'll try it but I do have a few questions.

1) The trailer seems to imply there is one planet, and various empires, but elsewhere it says you get your own planet. Which?

2) Are there only two races to choose from?

3) It says in one place you are the emperor of your planet/empire, but then elsewhere it says 1 account can have 5 characters. Do you play different leaders/ministers?

1. you start with one planet and then build colonyships to get other planets

2. ya there is two races right now but when you start the pay-to-play there is more(i think) i hope so

3. ya 1 account you get 5 slots to play other races(right now there is 2 races to play i hope there is more)

it just started Feb 13 so there is a few bugs but from what i am able to play so far i've had no problems (give it a try and see for yourself)

A warning

i've found a problem with the new game it caused World of Warcraft to flicker on two diff computers both of which have Ati 9800 card in them so if you have a ati card just reset your grafics and WoW will work (this need to be done each time you load this game) till they fix it (i sent them a crash report) (not blizard) so if you have a problem with grafics just reset your grafics to default and it will work again
