New Omega lives entirely on the blockchain, which means it can not be shut down or censored. Through the power of Ethereum, it is a self-financed and never-ending, strategic space game, with provably fair results.
New Omega at its core allows players to fight among each others fleets of ships, where the control of the composition of the fleets, and their combat strategies, is left to the user pre-fight, whereas the resolution happens without any user interaction (the fight is played, and it can be viewed, but it’s not possible to change tactics mid-fight).
In blockchain terms, that means the game needs to transact once per fight, and the block time determines the time we need to wait for the fight to be generated. Since block times are seconds, suddenly the experience becomes acceptable to the user almost as-is.
