Be first to ask your question!

There has to be some benefit of being part of the Lucas Forums - and there is. I am looking for 10 questions from our members to be the first ones to be put to Petroglyph and if you can make the live chat, actually ask them YOUR question.

I will select the best 10 and then post the results here

How will the Heros be controled? Will you have to research them, do they come in at a certain time, or do you get them in the begining?

One of your employees who's a regular at the un-official Petroglyph forum for EaW, who goes under the name Delphi there, said the game, and I quote "The game ends at ANH". Is this a false statement and he merely ment the Tech Tree ends at ANH?

We(us and Lucasarts) are both unsure because of the time its taken to get any sort of reply back and the fact I have arranged this live chat, which - lets face it, is more fun than a tradtional Q&A.

Depending on whats decided, there will be another Q&A or even another live chat at a later date.

How will multiplayer skirmish's be handled when there are more than two players? Will it be all imperials vs rebels, all v all or have the ability to have Imps and rebs as allied team mates?

How do you research the technologies? Will it be like AOE or RA2?

Just to make for certain, because many fans are still unsure, will the death star have the capabilities of destroying capital ships?

Why aren't the Republic and Seperatists included in the game? What are the chances of an expansion being released containing these sides?

Will there be a 'civ editor'? (ie So players can take in-game units, technologies etc and create their own faction)

Will units gain veterancy over time? If so, will this apply to both ground and space forces?

Will the game be moddable with XML? Also will you feature stuff about the mods on your main site? One last question will you release a tech tree along with all the units before the launch of the game? sorry i had so many questions

What will be done about heroes and bounty hunters to make sure that they are not overpowered, in comparison to regular units?

Also:

You've said in an interview that planets can rebel. How does this work, exactly? Do all planets have a population loyalty measure for each faction? If that is the case, how would that work on Neutral worlds? Does the Death Star affect loyalty or the chance for worlds revolting?

Do you think Empire at War will counter balance between casual gamers and hardcore RTS players?


Age of Empires 3
vs
Empire at War
vs
Rise of Legends
vs
Battle for Middle-Earth 2

Let the battle begin.....

We do know that every planet gives whoever controls it a specific bonus. But we dont know exactly what all the planets bonuses are as of now. For heroes, I think its along the same lines. But you might get some from completing missions and the like.

My only question is have they decided if we can name our ships or not

as has been said previously, keeping a ship thats named something alive is alot more imersive than keeping just a standard ship alive

oh, and can we name fighter squadrons as well?
