    Great news!

    Major updates to the game have improved game play,
    New hardware for more reliable server time.
    New vehicles
    In game Voice in works!
    Closer to finally getting a STEAM release.

    And a Indigogo fund campaign netted a nice boost to further foundation improvements.

    The game is on a rebound!

    Always was.
    Not a port, but built-for-Mac.

    It was always OS X, started on PPC so I think it is Universal, but maybe now just Intel (since PPC support dropped with 10.7 (?))

    Now the interface is not Aqua, its unique.

    What is advantage to that?
    You prefer game scores in game on your Steam profile?

    Thanks for the info but I'm going skip it. I was thinking about getting it until I saw the subscription price. The $15 per month subscription fee is too much.

    It is F2P with a basic list of units to pick.
    Subscription gets you all units.

    They also have days where everything is available.

    This game is only 13 years old? Man, so much has changed in my life since then LOL. I didn't know it was still around; too bad I don't play video games anymore I used to publish so many cool dogfight videos of large formation bombing runs long before fraps was a thing and now nobody even knows what that is anymore lol...
