Gah, I've tried three times to download this (waiting about 20 mins each time for various servers to have free slots) and for some reason it always stops at about 200mb done... I've been waiting to play this all day :(

Anyone played it yet? Is it good?

Played it from about 1 am to 5 am =P

I really liked it, it has a feeling of NS and Battlefield mixed together.

One of the things I dont like is that the vehicles are to cheap and the rocket turrets have no range at all.

and I saw EOD on a server there just before it shut down =P

Bleh, after about a gigabyte of failed downloads, I got this mod installed... I don't think it's really worth it. Gameplay is a bit bland: you'd need all 64 players to make it fun to play. The maps are too big, the tanks are too common, the weapons look wooden (NF) and fake (BE), and the story is crap to top it off. The base building is a nice element but it means lots of tedious standing around for the troops. In fact, when I played, I spent most of the game standing around waiting.

I tried playing on three different servers... and it was totally unplayable due to incredible lag. It was bizarre firing a rocket and watching it stutter back and forth in the air and take a full 15 seconds to get to its target. And players teleporting backwards and forwards several feet constantly while moving. I have a great broadband internet connection, and I tried three different servers so it couldnt' have been due to laggy servers either. The game just clearly isn't properlly optimised for the internet, there's something causing immesnse lag.

Has anyone had a game without extreme lag? Cause until this problem is fixed I'm not going to even bother trying to play this again, unless some people have said in fact there are servers with OK latency.

One of the things I dont like is that the vehicles are to cheap

Well, the commander of the team can set it so that players can't build tanks, only the commander can build them. Also, perhaps the price of stuff can be set by the server, not sure about that.

I gave up after that servers shut down. It was almost lag free too, unlike the other 10 servers I tried joining. And it was getting fun too.

The lag is nuts with this mod. I don't get lag in any other mods. Only 2 servers out of a ton of other I played had no lag which made it very fun when using vehicles.

I dislike the NF weapons and shit. They don't look like they could kill. The Imperial Faction though I love. Very solid when playing them.

I might play a little tonight.

to HoHSilent, use "move on boot" by Gipo Utilities, I don't have a link, but you can delete things before Windows partitions the hardrive.

Man, Empires is fun!

The Vehicle customization is a neat idea, and I'm glad they've implemented it.

You're right. I just got done playing an hour worth of Empire on one of the hl2land.net servers and there is zero lag. Great fun.

Another server popped up, forgot the name. they run a 24 hour escort map if your not to keen on constaint Nub commanders, It's also good for trying out tank desgins for the empire. lag is not a problem.
