Not really familiar with that game unfortunately Richard. One thing to consider is the ping rate is slower than DSL or Cable since it's shooting up to a satellite in space and back. So live peer to peer gaming can see some problems especially on combat games since there is likely to be a lag. If it's turn based strategy/combat I think you should be just fine.

If it works, any online game will result in your opponents being at least 3 seconds ahead of you at all times.  About one second for you to see your situation, another second for your reaction to be received by your opponent, and yet another second to see the result.  This is because of latency.  The speed of light is just too slow.  Good luck.

I did find the minimum system requirements on their webpage and they specifically state that sattlite internet is not compatible with the game...

Another important thing to remember is that Exede requires a two year contract upon installation. So you'll have to pay an ETF if you decide to cancel, even hours after the instal as there is no grace period...

I would recommend delaying the install to look at alternatives...
