Anyone else playing this yet?  Its still in beta, and the ork faction isn't playable yet.  All the same I'm digging it. 

 

They seem to have balanced chaos better than the tabletop version and the real time battles makes it more about positioning than ordinance/nova cannon spam, at least at the 500pt level I've made it to.

 

What do you all think?

Think I'll wait until works are playable.

May the Enemies blood on your choppa never dry or your welding torch grow cold!

Orks went live yesterday.  You get a big red button and I spent most of last night ramming my kroozers into enemy ships.

Is the beta free? I can't seem to find anything other than pre-purchase.

It's not free, it's in early access on Steam.

 

Had a good play around with this. It's challenging, but the Orks are definitely a powerful faction at the moment. Very ram and assault based, as they should be.

I bought the game at release and I dare say it's been worth the money. Orks are very well implemented, with a playstyle concentrated on ramming, boarding and short-range firepower. Klan upgrades bring a few nasty tricks to the table - blood axes get nova kannons (even on light cruisers, which makes them very spammable), albeit ones that may blow up in your face. Bad moons have long-range boarding via the shokk attak mega kannon and an extra upgrade slot, and evil sunz ships get a traktor kannon to pull enemy ships out of position (or bash them against each other ;) ) and faster refill for the big red button. My favourite is the goff upgrade though, simple reinforced ram and extra assault actions. Straightforward but extremely useful.

 

Playstyle-wise, I think this game has got orks down very well. Too bad only the imperials have a campaign for themselves...

I'm a huge fan of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. I find it to be very well made and very enjoyable.
