This Mod Brings Back that Amazing SarWars Feeling!
« on: February 12, 2018, 06:12:46 PM »
The title says it all. I played the vanilla EaW back when it was first released and nabbed the Gold Version on Steam a year or so back when it was on sale. I loved the mechanics but FoC was a general disappointment because I felt the Zann Consortium was far too powerful and I wasn't that interested in the story. Rebels/New Republic vs Empire - that's what I wanted.

I stumbled across this mod largely by accident. A friend of mine let me borrow the Heir to the Empire series a month back and I loved-every-second-of-it. While searching for more about the old expanded universe, I found this mod. I downloaded 2.1 (or is it 2.15?) and I love it, absolutely love it. I feel like a kid again (let's just say I'm in my mid/late 20s) and now can't get enough about the expanded universe. The new models, the new mechanics, the emphasis on trying to balance new/old content, and the dedication to giving it that StarWars feel are unbelievable.

Huge thanks to the mods who dedicated what can only be an immeasurable amount of time and effort to this game. Seriously, you guys should've been on the development team for FoC - this is the expansion (if something of the magnitude can be called that) that EaW should've had.

Huge thanks to the community as well - you're guys frequent posting and activity was the only reason I stumbled across this mod to begin with.

And I am SO pumped for 2.2's release!

Yes! That's also why I love this mod so much, it brings back a great feeling of space combat and Star Wars strategy, and also the only game I've found that really gives the great 'coming out of hyperspace' experience.

If only we could get rid of the pesky land battles  :P

I originally played Empire at War just because at the time i got tired of Age of Empires and Warhammer, wasn't till later I actually watched the movies and learned the lore. I say watched the movies but at the time the only Star Wars I had seen was Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. But the mod it self kinda helped me get into the EU and for that im grateful.

Crazy impressive!!
