Question on game but not sure what I would Title this
It mentions you can have your own private server.. What does this exactly mean? Persistant? or a passworded game.

Can you fly to others planets and invade them?

Can you Expand to other planets and become bigger?

I don't know much about the game, but im very curious to just these 3 questions.

Mostly all RTS games done before has synchronous Peer-to-Peer architecture which have downsides: cheating (map hacks), port forwarding problems, all players lags if one of them got slow hardware, no possibility to reconnect, etc. This game got Client-Server architecture which haven't any of these problems, everything calculated on server like in MMO.

Currently you can't run your own local server because alpha and beta is online-only, all servers is hosted by Uber. But at release in December PA will be like any other classical RTS: LAN support, offline profiles.

PA haven't "persistant" games because it's normal RTS like Total Annihilation or Supreme Commander.

It's the idea, but not yet. Current alpha version is one planet only.

I think we'll see this functionality near to Beta in september.

Be warned that there's only one faction and no campaign story.

So it's NOT a "normal RTS like Total Annihilation or Supreme Commander." like the previous guy said.

Compaing story in TA wasn't important and in SupCom it's was bad and boring (if you want to compare it to StarCraft for example). Just my 50c.
