Even long time veterans are starting to abandon the game because of the lack of communication and dedication from Eugen. The focus on one game series and the total alienation of the AoA community cannot be good in the long run for Eugen. We even got the list of most wanted improvements, but they will not invest another cent.

For sure, this long silence from Eugen teams is something that the remaining players community dislikes a lot. As old fans of Act of War and RTS titles, as Eugen followers, we are clearly awaiting some major patches or a big expansion, in a word an AoA finally capitalizing on Eugen's historical expertise with RTSs and greatly improved on all of its aspects.

From that point of view, we are still clearly disappointed by multiple aspects of the game and, beyond some guys that are only here to bash the game or the devs gratuitously, the good majority of us brought a lot of feedback, we took the time to expose a lot of inconsistencies, we made a lot of serious topics, detailed observations and debates around specific parts of the game, during a long period of time. So, yes, we know that the observations and expectations were huge, often went in different directions, that Eugen teams can't satisfy everyone and that they undoubtedly and cleverly prefer to remain silent till they have something valuable to announce or deliver. But honestly, in a certain manner a studio has to propose a solid premise about a game and can't expect the players to fill all the blanks. Moreover, the devs, the marshalls or the moderators should give a frame and clear directions to the debate, that's certainly a part of the job. This is more or less the case for Wargame, but it somehow failed here and you should have known that it would have had a detrimental effect on the game.

The relevant question put here is to know if anything still goes on with AoA. This, the faithful people still present here, expecting some good news, deserve to know it. And more broadly, some of us are also interested in knowing what is going on with your RTS titles and mechanics. We have to admit that Wargame is a very good game and represents your livelihood for now, but you certainly know that your DLC policy won't work in the long term, that you can't rely only on this "RTT pattern" when looking ahead, and finally that your engine is showing its limits nowadays. Hell, AoA probably turned out to be a little source of profit too, but you're clearly and quickly getting closer to an end-of-cycle, and what's next? What's new?

Many of us would like to see the glass half-filled rather than half-emptied, would like to think that AoA is not already abandoned, just like your RTS ambitions. The game clearly needs major improvements, and a "High Treason-like" expansion could do the job if you take the time to polish it on all of its aspects. Or at least, AoA undoubtedly served as an experiment, as a test tube for your on-going RTS projects. Plenty of people certainly saw some old and obsolete RUSE mechanisms adapted to AoA, but they simply don't fit in. At the end, we can't believe that you became totally strangers to base and unit construction or RTS income systems, particularly when considering that a "realistic" battlefield representation and advanced combat mechanisms, like the Wargame ones, could certainly do wonders in a RTS frame.

In any way, this wall of silence has to come to an end :roll:
That's the saddest part of the story. I was getting used to think, after nearly three decades of its existence, that the word "Strategy" was the main cornerstone of the RTS genre and golden age.

I really did like this game, and made some good pals well playing it. Problem was the execution, not enough things to do in this game, no sense of progression to move towards. That to me was the issue, yeah it was cool to have ladders but they were not done properly. Did not really get anything for winning or loosing, just simple stats.

People playing is not their concern, people still buying the game is more important.

I´ve been playing this series (all 3 WG) since start, Red Dragon the most, and I also feel sad there´s a lacking number of serious players committing to the game. Basically, this game is brilliant, it has no real rival in the RTS scene, with all the units, stats, nations and realistic approach, but I think it is hard for Eugen to tweak this game for enough people being happy, beacuse the people who play this game a lot (on a "semi-pro" basis or whatever) has such a high degree of knowledge and interest in modern military history and units (like myself) it´s very hard to make everyone happy.

The thing I very much hope for, and expect, is an announcement of a future plan for a successor to Red Dragon, or a major rehaul of the game. We are given some new maps and DLC´s, but the players of this game is, more than most other games, hard core military enthuisiasts. We are a hard crowd to satisfy, I must say. I don´t know what is lacking for Eugen to invest in a new game similar to this but better, but I hope they see the market potential. The reason many of the same people are still playing it is there´s no really good alternative. So we stick with it.

But I also feel frustration from fellow players that not enough is done to secure a healthy, thriving multiplayer scene for this game, and that is very sad...
