Features as described seem... underwhelming.

But when I turn my gaze from the meager start to the sky of possibilities... my god, it's full of stars.

DOff management, equipment management, remote access to the Exchange, access to chats, mail, remote fleet management for leaders and contribution for members... pretty much anything you do now that's menu and inventory based, could be done through this.

Nice job. Cool feature. Nuff said.

This certainly sounds like a good start. To be perfectly honest, the only things I'm looking for from this is:
1) DOff Management.
2) Dil Refining.
3) This becoming an actual phone app.
Any other features would just gravy to me.

This is cool beyond words.

I don't know how you guys kept this under wraps. This is the beginning of something really great.

That is all.

Stop the easily abused and unfair auto-silence "feature"!

I don't mind it being a mobile web page (gives possible broader access to devices like feature phones). I am looking forward to future releases, especially DOffing and possibly Starbase and other Fleet Holdings projects; basically, expanding the meta-game outside of the confines of the game client. Being able to work on things offline that will benefit your character(s) online. I look forward to the possibilities

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.
And remember to follow the rules.

Not at all. I'm heavily involved in e-Commerce and the rule of thumb is: don't build an "app" for its own sake - websites are better.


I don't know what phone you've got, but the IE 9 on my WP7 device works fine. I doubt whatever Safari/Chrome equivalents are available on iPhone and Android are that much worse.

THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS. Or even user configurable skins. Hell if you can make the UI custome colourable we'll love you loads. Promise :p

Sorry Mario, I love you, but DOFFs!
