Not even a MMO game, plus pay to win..... lame

There a market for this type of game, but it has to be done very differently then this. I imagine a gigantic where players are placed randomly into, a player exist by having units of any sort, villagers the most basic. This might be the only real good game for the sandbox concept to work well. As players build and and move out, they bump into other players. You can kill them or make peace, trade with them. In theory if you were really really good (god like, you could take over the entire world (server).

Been playing this on and off for around a month now, it's not bad.

Obviously being a non paying user of the game, putting me striate into a disadvantage could be seen as a challenge ??

They should then add the ability to get a special reward if you win a game with some one who has better stuff then you.

Is this basically a licensed browser F2P type MMO?

This is not a browser game, this is a fully fledged RTS build on a customized AoE3 engine.

What makes it an MMO is the persistent "Capital" where research and upgrade your units, craft gear for them, trade with other players and produce raw materials.

Saying that it is "pay to win" is extremely misleading, considering the co-op vs AI mode is bound to be very popular. Sure, in competitive PvP players who pay a one off fee will have an advantage, but the game you are being offered for free should be more than enough to convince you to buy the premium content.
