* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: As in [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined the series it's based on]], there is no NoWarpingZone. Therefore, it is all too possible for some arsehole {{Griefer}} with tens of levels on you to jump in right on top of your ship and rip it to shreds before you can effectively resist.

Playing as either a nugget or a new Centurion, you dive headlong into these events. Starting out in humble Strikes like the Viper or Raider, you can progress to larger Escorts, and then to Lines and Carriers that are dwarfed only by the Basestars and Battlestars. ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''-style raids with storied instances and bosses do not exist; instead, there is a focus on system control, which involves defeating the other sides' Outposts while establishing your own, and PVP.

* DamageSpongeBoss: Outposts.

to:

* DamageSpongeBoss: Outposts.Outposts have 30,000 HP, whereas even Lines almost never hit 10,000.

Added DiffLines:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: The players who sink money into the game are referred to as "Wallet Warriors".


* LightningBruiser: Multirole ships, at least in their own classes. Speed and agility of an Interceptor, tank and weapon mounts of an Assault, computer capabilities of a Command. Really expensive bastards, though, and for slots they are only JackOfAllStats.

Really expensive bastards, though, and for slots they are only JackOfAllStats. But they are versatile enough to overcome many situations.

Added DiffLines:

*MoneyForNothing: Tylium. Very little good stuff is actually bought with it, instead bought with cubits. And with the exception of water, everything is sold for Tylium. It's not unheard of that someone has bought all Tylium ships in game, bulk (As in 100,000 or more) ammo, and mines with ammo regularly, and still has a massive stockpile of Tylium. This multiplies heavily when you are high level and are with a squad.


* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: AI units can instantly jump out after being engaged in a fight, whereas players experience a large penalty to their HyperspeedEscape time if they try to do the same.


Added DiffLines:

* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: AI units can instantly jump out after being engaged in a fight, whereas players experience a large penalty to their HyperspeedEscape time if they try to do the same.
