For a small studio that's fine...totals are important but you also have to look at costs too before you declare what is and isn't good...

It's because they released the beta client for Linux and Mac.

Remember Company of Heroes has a AAA developer and has a budget which is probably proportional to it's audience (4 - 5 times more expensive). And honestly I'd much rather the stability of W:ALB than the fluctuations of CoH

well of course i dont know any figures
but i did small research ;)
so in Eguene working are ..
50 talented people with in-depth experience in creating real time strategy games

hehe..dont be modest guys, but after chat failure in first months of relase i kinda i doubt it..haha calm down joking here(or not? :P )

Now lets look at history :
Eugen Systems released Act of War: Direct Action in March 2005

no sales figures.. wonder why?
expansion pack Act of War: High Treason was released in March 2006.
The Act of War serie sold more than 700 000 copies.

now we getting somewhere !
So in 2011 they released Ruse and ..
RUSE has sold more than 800 000 copies

didnt knew that actually! WOW
Wargame : European Escalation in february 2012

again no sales figures..
Wargame : AirLand Battle was released in april 2013

hm...what does it tells us? that if they were good numbers we would see them?
again maybe its enough to sustain studio and game (really hope). but i think their previous games driving them mostly.

now whats most interesting :
Right now, Eugen Systems is working on 2 RTS to be released next year

Im gonna bet my whole paycheck that it will be RUSE 2.
I really hope its gonna be another WALB..but they need to make money
If you play with me and i suddenly leave without saying i will its mean i lost connection.
I'm sorry but my internet sucks.

That figures... if WEE had sold poorly there wouldn't have been much sense in making WALB

To the thread in general, if Eugen is privately held there's no reason they would release sales figures.

Insecure people/companies brag.

BTW, Eugen has been going for almost 14 years now so I'd say what that whatever they are doing to maintain a healthy business while at the same time releasing very respected games, they should just keep doing that.

and just successful?
"there is no such thing as bad publicity" ever hear that ? especially when is true.
wouldn't that make more people interested in series? more random people not only hardcore strategy fans?
wouldn't that make game blogs/websites/etc. post "news" about this company that they sold X amount of games ..and that would be free advertise for them?

don't understand your attitude tbh. they did release other sales figures so i don't know why are you really talk about.
again don't really care about it and i dont demand it(haha), we just have fun hypothetical conversation here... but the way you opposing it makes me wonder..

sorry but working for them? or you just defend them no matter what anybody says even if its not real attack?
