Originally posted by Phry Seem to remember this game came out several years ago, and pretty much faded to obscurity in short order. Have they redeveloped the game and re-released it?
It was bought by a couple of players who promised great things and then became in-game and in-forum tyrants. Eventually the players got tired of them and it shut down. Then someone else bought it and seems to have brought a more professional approach toward it.
The game has been totally rehauled, all I can say is see for yourself. The ability to control territory as a custom player made faction has added a whole new twist to FoM, now theres many factions, alliances are compromised of many small factions. This creates a much more dynamic political situation, as well as specialized factions varying from Mercenaries to Production and Gankers to Security, It is a pretty epic sandbox.
Territory control grants owners percentages of world service income(Using a Vortex Gate ie)
You can also control the world services themselves for an even higher percentage
This money is pooled in faction funds, pretty epic to be able to pay your faction with your daily faction income.
It is currently in Open Beta btw.
