Pass and play and online. I started 4 online games and did my moves (actually one of them was a request sent BY someone else) and nobody has sent their turns back yet! I wanna shoot something!!

Appears to be worldwide now.
Seems like a decent translation from fast action to turn based... The UI on iPhone is not friendly to beginners though. I am struggling to figure out what I'm supposed to do.

Well this game is dead in the water (see what I did there) already if players don't even send the first turn back after more than 24h!

Anyone here want to play this and want to add me for some direct GC friend matches?

This game is in desperate need of AI. You need to be able to play the AI and learn the game and hone your skills before you start playing others.

How are folks getting a friendly match going with Game Center? I click Start, Challenge Friends and it comes back and says I have no friends that play the game. Is playing against friends Facebook only?

I was ver excited for like 5 minutes until I saw that it's online only, and you have to wait for other people to play back. No one ever does that, ever. I can't believe the decisions they made in creating this, how dumb. Ah well, I'll find something else to play.

All my games have been responded to and finally got the FB login to work.
-you have to log in with FB, then do it again or something (maybe restart the app in between?), then i found my friend.

But yeah the lack if ai skirnish or even unranked friendly match is wierd (like hero academy) and the tutorial is scarse at best.
But the game is really easy to learn (like a very tight german boardgame with few but well thought out rules) and the in-game manual does help a lot.

The iap is not really pay-2-win either, am winning most of my games with default ships against higher ranked players.

So can recommmend it greatly, if you like hero academy, uniwar, neuroshima hex and similar.
