What are the technical requirements for EOC Online?
A. We recommend Internet Explorer 5 or above, with the Macromedia
Flash Plug-in installed also.
Is it an add-on developed by Particle, or a mod made by free-lance
A) It's a game developed by the VISION studios for Infogrames /
Will it be available for download, for free ?
A) Yes this game is totally free, but it's an online browser based
game. It cannot be downloaded and played offline.
What piloting skill affects?
A) Piloting skill is the almost opposite of combat skill Where combat
skill together with your firepower and speed determines how much
damage you do, the piloting skill together with speed and shielding
determines how little damage you take. When attacking a base piloting
skill also determines how much damage the base will do to you.
What's the formula you cause damage (skills & ships statistics)?
A) The actual formula will never become public, but several aspects
determines the amount of damage done, including piloting skill and
combat skill of each ship and of course the most obvious is that
big ships does more damage to smaller ships then vice versa
Are squadrons any other use than seeing others situation (which
should be for all allied ships, not just your squad), and ability
send mail only to your squad?
A) Squadrons is just a way of organize smaller groups of crafts
within a legion. Its fast and easy communication if your squadron
is out doing an operation.
The ability to see every single ship in the legion is a privilege
of the Fleet Commander only.
What exactly happens when your ship is destroyed? Do you respawn
the next turn at your base? Is there a respawn delay as a penalty?
Do you take a point penalty, or is this a valid way to jump across
the map in a pinch?
A) When you die you can respawn instantly at your homebase in the
same turn as the Grim Reaper took your craft, however you respawn
in a brand new Lvl 1 ship with all your skills and shields back
down to rock bottom again.
At the moment we get 5 moves per turn right. We have to use those
5 moves in one hour, because it seems the upper limited of moves
is 5. When I logged in last night I was expecting more than 5 moves
this morning. Is there meant to be a cut off limit of 5 moves or
is it a mistake.
A) Turns don't roll over like that. If you don't use your turns,
they are just gone.
Is EOC Online another EOC game or are we talking about the online
component of EOC as it is?
A) It is a turn-based browser game based on the Edge Of Chaos universe,
not the online modes in the actual game.
Is this game going to become available via WAP or PDA?
A) Unfortunately no there are no plans for this to happen.
Can I turn off the cut scenes?
A) No. The cut scenes are in there deliberately to stop you firing
off all of your shots as quickly as possible.
Is there any other help?
A) You can always take a look at UgMan's Updated EoCo Pilot Tips
in the EOC Online Forums
