The Alpha Ask-Anything Thread

Post  EvilNinjadude on Thu Nov 08, 2012 4:46 pm

So, you've been playing the Alpha. Maybe you got through to the end, maybe you didn't. Maybe you figured out everything on your own, like I did. But in case you didn't, here is a thread for you! Sampling general information and FAQ's from all over the alpha, you can both add to the discussion and post your own (ir)relevant facts for everyone to learn!

Turrets, for example. How many can you place? Well, there's really two answers to that question. How many you can place at a time is given by the number overlaying the Icon. But you can still place more, only it'll destroy the ones you've already placed. The actual number of turrets you can place is shown by the payload bar, in green next to the icon. Payload gets replenished by the RESUPPLY Powerup.

No question is too obvious to be asked, so ask away! I do realize there's a 'how to play' video by the Alpha download, but you may not have watched/understood it or part of the mechanics it describes.
Of course there's things we don't know we don't know, and I plan to get rid of as many of those as possible too. Like, Veterancy. Feel free to ask what that is. Very Happy

Can you explain the stacking pick ups?
I've been running off the assumption that they increase speed, damage, and shields, but it's a little hard to tell in game.

Haste = ability cooldown reduction
Damage = damage increase on all damage dealt
Mitigation = damage decrease on all damage received
Repair = short term regen of shields and hull
Reload = short term regen on energy and heat, as well as full payload refill

Hey, I thought I was running this thread.
Oh well, I suppose the devs will also be able to answer some of the questions Razz
