Real time with pause. It's the shit says the cool kids on Twitter, so I added it to Imperium.

A part of the "description" for a photo here on G+. Whoever reads this mass of auto generated (I sure hope so at least) garbage? I'd rather see some real info about the photo such as geographical details, date, equipment used, techniques utilized etc etc.

Them gamerz are mad. Seems Wargaming dropped all balls, ran them over, set fire to them and then drowned the entire dev team.

Time to finally find another time waster.

It is fun and I'll still play a few battles here and there, but right now it's just too broken.

It seems G+ is the real home of all Google and Android fanpersons. All the posts I see here (usually promoted by Google as "Hot on G+") seem to be quite negative about the keynote from WWDC. The discussion on Twitter is much more about the real content, not about frantically trying to make fun of some tiny detail. Doesn't make me too eager to dive deeper into Android dev if the community is all about negativity.

Blogged a bit about how combat is resolved in Imperium.

I thought I'd blog a bit about how the combat resolution works in Imperium. It's not just a simple die roll and then apply some random casualties, but there is a bit more to it than that. I'll use as an example an infantry unit with 30 men firing basic rifles at another infantry unit with 20 men ...

Indeed. Some of the crap tanks get better once you have them fully upgraded. Many are just waiting for that good engine or gun before they can actually do anything. That initial grind is so awful. But the T-44 is still way underpowered and only when the opposition is right it can do some damage. I tend to use it as fast recon and try to shoot some heavies in the ass, but that often leads to very short games. :)

Having some fun with the ST-1 after some grinding to get it to be, well, fun.

Heh, four tanks in the base, no count down. All enemies invisible, but some tanks got destroyed. The numbers don't add up at all though. The testing team will get flogged, quite sure of it. :)

The T25/2 being nice for a change. In other news, the recent 1.10.0 version is utter crap. Tried three games and two crashed out to the garage and the third had invisible enemies. Did they even bother to test it once? Everyone has issues with every single game. Are Wargaming becoming too big, the Oracle of game developers?

Oh yeah, it's basically a fast TD when it comes to tracking things. It got some more HP in this update so it's not that underpowered anymore.

I played it a long time ago but I don't remember anything about it, probably just grinded/ground it to get the Panther or similar. Now it can be a serious killer when paired up against equals.

As a friendly remainder, I now post updates and screenshots to Imperium's Facebook page. There simply was no activity here.

Imperium is a realtime strategy game for the iPad. It is based in a fictional 19th century setting...
