Universe at war?

Just curious if anyone plays this? There a decent amount of people playing this online?

I haven't played a RTS in years but some reason this game really looks good to me. I hate the world war stuff so burned out on it.

So just looking for some opinions on it.

honestly if you are looking for a good rts steer clear of universe at war. I tried it for about 15 minutes and then I uninstalled it.
A similar looking game that I would recommend is dawn of war.

Intel i5 2500K @ 4.8ghz
Corsair H70
Asus P8P67
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3 12800
EVGA GTX 570, Dell 2005 fpw and Dell 2007 fpw
Intel X25-M 80GB, 500gb WD Storage

The screen caps look good as does the writeup on wikipedia. I am grabbing the demo now and will get back to you after trying it out.

I will never know just how bad it may be because it does not work with my MX518 gaming mouse and there are no options to remap the control that I need to get through the second step in the tutorial.

So yah, if the programming is that bad, it does not bode well for the rest of the game. I would give it zero stars.
