Think tactic

This is an example of a very good tactical game where you need to think how your units need to be placed on the board and what gear should they wear. Step-by-step vs your online opponent thinking the same way. There is no best move, but there are plenty of possible bad moves. Think twice before you hit submit your turn button.

Too many errors

I doubt its my new Mac Book Air, this game keeps in giving me way to many errors and it is laggy.
Once no internet connection, another some other weird errors.
Please debug this game and please time every turn this way people can focus in finishing their game rather than waiting two days to hear back from them.

I am suggesting to add a time limit per turn, athorwise this game will be dull as hell and boring if users are not interactive.

great game, but a few bugs in the mac client

Five stars for the game, three stars for the Mac client version.
The game itself is absolutely fantastic, a nice blend of random chess, and very well balanced teams. I play it all the time and love it!
The Mac client, however, has some annoying bugs (which I'll send in to their awesome support team.)
