How will hexes affect gameplay?

Posted on Monday, February 17, 2014

I was reading a thread regarding the change to hexes but it didn't seem to touch on what hexes will mean for gameplay. Some questions I have come up with are:

  • Will orientation have defensive or offensive bonuses?
  • Will we still be able to choose in which direction our ships leave the space hangar?
  • Will changing orientation cause movement points?

I would like to hear Stardock weigh in on the change to hexes and what it means for the game.
