Multiplayer (up to 15-20 players) for full diplomatic games. Would be fab !

I have not played since the Pirate update which I did not like at all, but I still think DW is one of the top 20 games of all time. With that said, consider waiting until Stellaris comes out before working on the new DW series. Paradox knows WTF they are doing whether you like them or not , so let them spend the R&D and put Stellaris out (which I am definitely buying). Then have Eliot scope it out and borrow/steal some ideas and combine them with his own DW ideas and BOOM, you get a winner.




Please, no. I know many enjoy EU4 and CK2, but I find those games incredibly boring to play. I'd love if Paradox (or anyone else) makes a decent run at the current king in this area, DW, but am highly skeptical that Paradox will pull it off if they rely heavily on the same type of gameplay as in the past. Grand strategy is just incredibly boring to play compared to a good 4X, at least in my experience with the above 3 games.

Also - very excited to hear about DW2! Look forward to more info.

If I know Paradox then they're going to make a star ruler/endless space style game. If I am right and this is the case then I see no way Distant Worlds would loose. It's not even the same league.

Stellaris is the most exciting space 4x I have read about since the early Moo3 drafts back on the Delphi forums, but they are not going to clash.DW2 is looking more like 2017 at this point.I will buy both.

Personally, I would like to play in a galaxy as big as this one:

Hopefully not multiplayer. Stellaris has been ruined with its focus on multiplayer balance.

I agree, I hope they dont waste any of their limited resources on multiplayer. Its something I'll never be using, I find that 4x games are generally too epic and time consuming for good MP anyway.

Also as far as graphics go, put me down for 2d and not caring much about flashy graphics as long as the gameplay is good and deep. Flashy graphics are high priority for 1st person shooters, not 4x games. I'll be much happier with a fantastic AI than with fantastic 3d ship models.

I tend to agree on multiplayer. But multiplayer is such a popular request, I doubt they'll be able to resist. On the other hand they did manage to resist most of the popular requests on marketing and pricing, so perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised. ;-)

I don't need flashy graphics, but there needs to be a big upgrade from the original DW as that is simply unplayable for many. Having said, that I'm sure they are aware of this and will address it.

Assuming that the basic mechanics of DW2 are similar to or expand on the original mechanics of DWU, how do players see a multiplayer version working in practice?

First, perhaps as many as 20 players have to agree on galaxy size, number of planets, pirates and space monsters, starting tech, etc., then they play at the same time in a game that currently has five adjustable speed settings, plus pause to allow players to stop the galaxy while they take the time to do things like designing ships and bases. Then players will have to log off for periods during what will be an extremely long game while they engage in such mundane activities such as eating, sleeping, and working, and doubtless the timing of this will be all the more staggered as players won't all live in the same real world time zones. But the game planets will keep orbiting the stars, ships with current orders will keep moving, research projects will be completed, spies will succeed or fail in their missions, and important messages for players to act on will be generated just the same.

I am aware that other multiplayer games have ways of making the problems manageable, but those games aren't the DWU that I know and love.

This is an old argument risen from the dead. It should stay that way since we have no input on how they will make their game.
