You think they need more than 2 months to get the next one out?

It's been a bit over 2 months since the supposedly "final" patch came out when they couldn't truly promise anything in the future (or rather were finishing up the major patch for AoA so they didn't know the details themselves)

Date of next one coming out will depend on 2 major factors:
- stick to 1 country per DLC or release more, 1.5 months per nation seems not too farfetched (the price would need adjusting though, I'm not going to be giving 6 Eur per nation, even for really exotic nations like india/israel)
- will major (and I mean major, not post-DLC fine tuning) patches only happen coupled with DLC release (marketing-wise, this is the smart option, which is what I think they will go for)

So I'm not expecting anything new in under 2-3 months TBH
Probably 2 minor patches in the time between

However I would really love for this DLC thing to take off and we get some promos for Wargame 4 for mid/late 2017 soon.
And if they really want to make business and prevent buyers remorse, then making sure that nation DLCs bought for RD will be transferrable to Wargame 4 also would be a rather smart move (and would justify keeping a price of 5 eur per nation at least and would prevent people from hesitating when purchasing nation DLCs for RD if there might be a Wargame 4 coming out half a year later)

Other than that:

6 bucks seems like an okay price to me.

we talking USD or Eur?
because 6 eur is 6.7 USD (not sure how much the DLC was in USD, but when the game costs 39.99 Eur in the USA it's 39.99 USD, so I also assume it's the same)

Also the price is constant for the entire eurozone, so even for countries where the purchasing power parity is somewhere around 30-40% less than in germany/france, they still pay the same 6 Eur

So now imagine not paying 6 USD, but somewhere around 10 USD, are you going to pay that much for one single nation?

The important thing in your comments is balance patches. For most of Red Dragon we've languished with months and months between patches, and when we did get them they were enormous, meta-altering bombs that were dropped and then mainly left to settle for more months. Even this most recent patch, I feel that there were significant changes that have altered the meta, and balance of power in ways that I'm still coming to terms with.

In short, we need to have more frequent patches. My hope is that by the end of June we'll have had another meaningful patch, and also another DLC of some variety. If I were Eugen, that's the pace I would set and it would signal a renewed interest and activity in the franchise that will spur players to pay attention and play more often.

If they've given us this patch, and this nation pack, and then let the game sit until Septemer or so then we'll know that nothing's really changed.

Do people in Europe typically use the term "buck" to refer to Euros?

Lol no. I'm non native english speaker, so I use it like it's used by english speakers, so just for my currency (which is not yuros)
