Woah boy! Since when has the doom-propheting gotten this out of hand?

But hey.. I agree..
Focus could totes be next EA style publisher..

So.. Down with leach publishers! no?

I propose we buy out Eugen.. although I doubt we could afford it.. but hey.. high hopes right? Eugen would be the Greenbay Packers of game developers..

I honestly do not know a lot about Focus or Eugen's business practices, but there does seems like there is a trend at eugen to try and make multiple games at the same time.
That can be both a good thing and a bad thing.

I fully understand that some parts of the gamme development process takes a lot more manpower then others.
Therefore it is a good idea to swap over personell to other projects when they are not needed on that project anymore.

On the other hand I do not want rushed and unfinished games, with lots of potential but little to show for it.
I think that a lot of people feel like RD was a bit rushed and lacking polish and if I have understood it correctly they where working on AOA on the same time.

The Trackmania series did pretty good : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrackMania#Reception
I personally played only the first three installments, but i always found them quite fun.

They've been with Focus since the beginning. Maybe Focus's practices changed in those recent years (let's say post 2012).

What's that ? Consumers complaining the game they just buy being too similar to a previous one while the exact differences are plainly displayed on the product's page ?
And, the process's name is the same as the said previous game ?? OMG, checkmate Illuminati Focus !

I 'm sorry, but that's pretty hilarious. It's full proof that consumers simply throw their money around without bothering checking wth they are about to buy.

Oh I do not have any problem with RD being to similar to the previous wargames.
But I do have a problem with naval THE big new thing being quite broken and absolutely unfun.
Also I do have a problem with most maps being really bad (you don't see the new maps on the product's page)

How much you paid for DLCs for Wargame?

I don't think the current state of Wargame is due to Focus pressure. For me, it has much more to do with game and map design choices.

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?
