Pre-orders will be stopping tonight.
We have got enough data and enough early alpha testers to work on the current early state of combat features.
We also do not have enough man resources to provide the excellent level of support if player numbers increase further.
During this quiet period we will increase the number of moderators and community volunteers.
Current features that we are working on:
1) Damage model improvements
2) Net code improvements
3) New ships
4) Open world early prototype testing
5) Improved ballistics
EDIT: seems this is the reasoning...
We will also stop selling the pre-orders for the game temporarily to give us and community volunteers time to mold the community to the form that we desire, getting rid of some of the toxic players in the process. This will also hopefully show that we value friendly and respectful community more than cash.
