So... is this game worth buying?
To protect the spacehands and officers of the Imperial Navy, the Emperor Gavin is equipped with 5 Turret Sandcasters, an efficient 9MW Meson Screen, 600 sensor decoys, and a hull over 5.3 centimeters thick of proven Bonded Superdense Armor.

It is still too early to say!

Unless you are enthusiastic the server issues are likely to irritate.  Some people have a lot of difficulty downloading the game.  Servers are very unstable and either kick players or crash a lot. 

The anticheat seems to work ok - that is positive.

We still do not have decent server tools.  We still have a lot of problems just the same as in Roses (the infamous 'E' button for one).

The combat is a lot faster paced than Roses and some things are improved ( shields are not force fields).

However the overall design of the game is scrappy, it feels like a collections of 'wouldn't it be cool if's rather than a coherent design.

But yes I think YOU should get it.

Server problems got alot better with the last fix ( i believe you werent able to play the current one ) Issues are still there. But a complete kick of everyone became rare compared to the former version. But on the other hand smaller lagspikes became more current. But overall it got alot better since the last fix, it should still be a bit better for the full release.

Although Paradox is maintaining a laser focus on the grand strategy genre, 2014 will also mark the arrival of a number of new initiatives. The most interesting among them includes a new studio dedicated entirely to supporting the modding community.

MKNine silly, the watering wont take effect instantly... It just means its muddy and slippery around the trees but maybe that is what you are cheering?  O_o

The range increase on the axe will be interesting though.
