Just curious because I don't see it explained anywhere else. What exactly is a lifetime membership? I am assuming I get Massive Assault 2, including the online access, but what else? If there is a MA3 will I get that as well?

Thanks

This link should answer most of your questions:

http://www.massiveassaultnetwork.com/man2/subscribe.php

The first MAN had a subscription based service where you had to pay per month for your account. MAN2 goes beyond this with the lifetime membership, allowing you full access to MAN2 and any maps that are created for it, and any future patches to improve it, all indefinately. A pretty sweet deal.

Unfortunately, the link doesn't answer my questions. For example, I downloaded the MA2 version 226Beta demo, played through the tutorial, and tried to log on to play the demo online. I get an error message that I need to submit my activation code, which of course I don't have as I want to try the demo before I purchase.
I see several mentions of a game called "Domination", although I can't find any information regarding it. It looks like an expansion or related product to Massive Assault that is decidedly buggy. I see a number of posts wherein it is mentioned that it is being worked on and a patch is expected to fix some of the problems. Does my Lifetime Subscription get me access to whatever Domination is?
I also see several mentions of Clan Wars. Is this just a ladder format or a new game type (or both)? Will I get Clan Wars as part of my Lifetime Membership?
Do I get a game manual with my Lifetime Membership? I've looked in the install folder and on these forums and can't find a manual, tech tree, etc.
I figure at some point there will be an expansion or even a Massive Assault 3. Does my Lifetime Membership get me access to those products too?
What other option(s) do I have for an account other than Lifetime Membership?

Logically, it is absolutely correct decision to try out the demo before purchasing full version. However, we removed the Demo access for a couple of weeks after release. At the moment we're working on some improvements to come out with even better Demo and make public announcement. This is likely to happen by the next weekend.

No, Domination is more to singleplayer, you need to buy it separately from MAN2. The website is www.domination-game.com

Not right now. The system is more complecated than we expected initially and requires more then 1 year of development time.

Looks through in-game help to get essential tips on gameplay, rules, tips and units. The Internet lobby part is not covered there, which we're planning to fix with in new Demo.

The complete game manual will appear on website and game install upon the release of retail version (q1 2007).

MA3 is not being developed at the moment. Once funded, it will take us 2 years to develop this sequel and I'm not sure it will be TBS game (we might swith to RTS like THQ and Relic did with Total War series).

There're only two options: Demo or Lifetime membership. We used to charge players monthly subcription of $7 for MAN1, but we substituted it with lifetime membership. Which seems to be a better deal.

Best regards,
Nick.
