Description
Buy Autofiring weapons and maneuver your ships to kill enemies. Destroy their base to win the game. 24 unique heroes and loads of custom items and abilities. Now with Co-Op survival mode.



Reborn!:

Survival Co-Op Update!

When all players going the south alliance they will activate this survival mode and fight waves on increasingly difficulty AI controlled hero ships that will use abilities and eventually overrun the players. The victory condition remains the same (destroy the enemy harbors or castle before your own are destroyed.


Battleships:

Boats go "Pew pew" as they seek confrontation with their enemies, and manouver to avoid range of autofiring weapons. Players save for larger boats with more powerful abilities as they balance the tradeoffs of different weapons and utility items.


Details:

The game play is similar to dota with a few notable differences:

- Players all start with in the same boat and can spend the gold they collect to upgrade their ship from the list of available ships. (There are currently 20 boats available, each with a custom model and set of abilities)

- Boats do not have a targetable main attack, instead, players purchase weapons which automatically fire at random boats in sight and within the range listed in the weapon.

- Each weapon has 3 basic tiers, and each tier can be purchased twice to combine to a "doubled" weapon of that tier.

- When a player has all three tiers of a weapon doubled they can purchase an "ultimate" recipe for that weapon with a special effect.

- Killing towers permanently increases the constant gold income for the team that kills the tower.

- All players receive a bonus splash of gold from their empires every 4 minutes to keep game play interesting and even.

- There are 4 main utility items, each with 4 tiers of power

@radar We got a large 5v5 game going (which took forever) but no one got any gold.. we constantly had zero gold no matter what.
It happened again later in a smaller game 3v3 but it glitched out after about 5 minutes..

You should get around to updating stat-collection. Valve renamed the CreateHTTPRequest function to CreateHTTPRequestScriptVM, so that most mods that call it crash, and none of them will be recording stats. It's been almost 7days now. We sent an email to the devs that registered on the site.

@yikes! okay i'll fix that right away.
