I'm a new player & been in the forums since 3/06.  I'm fascinated with  Brad Wardell, the dev & designer of Ashes' Lore article of 2/24/16 (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/16835-Ashes-of-Singularity-Post-Humans.2#&gid=gallery_5913&pid=1) wherein he credits Intel Corp. for generating his wonderful idea of Turinium ( I wonder why he didn't name it Intelium, or it may be a trademark infringement ); "WHAT IS TERINIUM: To understand Turinium one nee...

So I've seen a couple videos of this game, but things keep changing.  What kind of infrastructure are you guys building to get started?

Based on my Company of Heroes days, I know that getting started properly is key to an RTS game, and it seems to be key here too.   What build orders are out there?  Is there any universally accepted things?

I'm using my first engineer to capture and build a factory, or sometimes an extractor, while capturing.  But I haven't been ab...

If all goes according to plan, most, if not all, Ashes players will have Escalation in the next few days.

We originally planned to allow players to play MP against each other but as time has gone on, it has become increasingly apparent that this would have both technical and fairness issues (i.e. do Ashes players get strat...
Want to find other players to play with in Escalation?

Download the Escalation Browser. When in your system tray, it will turn green if number of eligible players grows.  You can also chat with other players who hang out as well.

Note: Steam must be running in order to use Escalation Browser or you will get a "SteamAPI failed to init" error.

Any of you interested in multiplayer (ranked) you can download and run this:

 

http://draginol.stardock.net/files/EscalationBrowser.zip

 

Basically, you run this and it goes into your system tray.  When there are ranked games available for you in your region, it will notify you.  Then, just load up Ashes and join the multiplayer queue.

Future updates will let you launch and go right into the queue, this is an internal alpha.
