Size. Always. Matters.

3. Exciting, Expansive Team Play.

“A thousand soldiers can start a revolution.” That's a lot of cats to herd.

Just like the world, the team play aspect is huge. Squads accommodate up to 12 players. Platoons hold up to 4 squads.

During an Alert, multiple platoons can coordinate over the Command channel and large scale tactical war breaks out. Objectives and specific roles can be assigned per squad, or multiple platoons can be sent in at once to overpower a single point. In the end, it is all about players leading a mass of other players against masses of other players, and cooperation and attention to command is critical if your empire is going to stand a fighting chance against the will and force of your opponents, which may sound hyperbolic, but is the absolute reality of the game you're playing.
