Like em or hate em (Im far more in the hate crowd) theres a very organized group within the Liao, far more organized than any other group Ive seen so far in this game, and far far more cohesive.
Organization and the ability to work together in this game are far more important that really anything else, given this is a team oriented game. A full lance of Atlasses will get ripped apart by a lance of Jenners (just the first example that came to mind, yes I realize this happens most of the time anyways due to slow and tard to turn) if the Jenners are well organized. The reverse is also true, Atlasses over Jenners.
At launch planetary control will consist of single matches though over time we intend to add support for sequenced matches.
one match per planet...
Think of the organized Liao vs the random scrubs.
HOW many planets are on the borders? Im kinda hoping there are hundreds (heck even fifty, at a full 15 minute match would only take 12 hours to burn through, and on a game thats up 24/7 thats not much time) or factiolns are gonna sweep and be nearly gone before anyone can even organize a reaction
