I would like to know how all of you come to the game and your first experience.
I have a friend, co-worker in the office, who played before and told me about a turn game with different races with different and unique skills. He told me about robbing somebody''s big carrier using a small cloaked boat, mining planets and talking to other players to crush a third party together. He told me he used to play it in University (here in Argentina) by giving a diskette with the turn to the hoster, who run the game in his home and give you back the diskette with the new turn to be played a few days later (in those days).
It was year 2005.
So he brought me to THE LAST DOMAIN and I wanted to play the two races he know and he described to me: Privateers or Robots but thew were taken so I pick COLONIAL, and suddenly become my favorite race.
What do a newbie playing VGA Planets? I had a button in the planet screen "BUILD STARBASE": Oh, I need more money and duranium, I will move them here. Result: I had 3 SB at turn 11. My friend told me "No... that's not the way of playing". I think the other players were surprised watching the scores, what a bold player! But I was toasted quick and left the game early.
Later I joined other hosts, paid the full version to Tim, played other races and become skilled in Robots and Birdmen, right now I am enjoying the Feds, I think this is the right race for me.
Push your brains and remember how you discovered VGA Planets, started playing and something you remember from you first experience!
from far away planet Argentina
My races are Birds and Colonials.
