I started through the tutorial a bit then stopped. Screen clashes and the like. Nothing major, merely a weekend annoyance rather than right now.

A word of advice to anyone who is going to go down the Imperial road:  make one of your first cruisers the class carrying the Nova Cannon.  The damned this is ridiculously good right now.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...

Can't hear you, too busy enjoying having captains executed for cowardice.

And then you have to deal with the fact that the ship explodes a minute later and that the captain's had the right idea, and now you have to deal with the repairs.

Ship morale is a vital issue. Repairs are a logistics matter and aren't covered under this department's budget.

That wonderful moment when a crippled Imperial ship is trying to jump away and your teleport attack denies them the chance. Oh my pretties, you're staying right here... #TeamEvil

The rage you get when you target an Imperial ship's engines before hitting them with assault boats and they can't even come close to keeping up with your chaos fleet.

And the agony when they just turn their nova cannons to blast you out of the void...

I stopped using my Nova cruiser, it's just too good currently. I like my Imperials more getting in there with a torpedo salvo then CQB broadsides (in space).

I'm actually in the same boat.  I've had a number of people disconnect when they saw I was running even a single Nova Cannon.  But this happened after I had unlocked my Battleship, so I figured now would be a good time to give Chaos a shot and I am really enjoying that playstyle now.

The anger you receive for engaging them at 12k and they can't get anywhere close to engaging you... priceless!

When running my Imperials I had a data collection mission against Chaos. Very much a "oh, beslubber off."

You know, I'd been *completely* forgetting to hit the Favour button. So only now do I have my Nurgle Battleship Rummy's Belly Fluff.

The bonuses aren't that great. Mostly slightly better troop strength and Nurgle starts reducing the hull of enemy ships right next to you.

Had a terrible match where it seemed the enemy Chaos fleet had every ship equipped with rapidly recycling Taunt. My vessels were uncontrollable for most of the match and so the enemy transports got away fairly unscathed.

Yeah, taunt is right up there with Nova Cannons on my "beslubbering really" list

The mini-warp jump is a lot of fun for Imperials. Perfect for crossing the opponent's T with plenty of generous broadsides at point blank range. For Chaos it's an excellent line breaker as well.

Orks are now unlocked and are a whole lot of fun. Run away a lot though so they have that going for them.

Yeah, I noticed they flee a lot.  I think the best one I had seen was taking two Dauntless into a game vs a Light Cruiser and Cruiser.  I killed the Light Cruiser and hadn't even touched the Cruiser, but the Cruiser captain freaked out and hit the warp out button!

It is interesting how they move differently, though.  I got so used to playing against Imperium and Chaos being able to use the quick turn (what ever it is called), but orks can't which allows me to dance around them in an Imperial ship lol

I've been having fun with boarding torpedoes. They recharge so fast and with their range you're a fool not to just fire them off every chance you get. Got to becareful with the slow warp charge time though, those escape missions take a *lot* longer to pull off.

So, a few weeks and three fleets into this beta and I'm really enjoying it. Imperials are my most reliable fleet, Chaos are my most adaptable, while Orks are the most *fun*. Eldar coming soon so an unknown quantity at the moment.

The available missions are still slim but at least variable enough currently that you don't feel like rage quitting when it's yet another transport escort job. Having preordered the game is always a gamble but I think this time it's going to be okay. Even if the campaign is a bunch of arse I'm, enjoying the fleet skirmishes enough to carry the day no matter what.
