it's a fair point tbh and a judgement call each member has to make themselves, i see it from a different angle, then again i know a bit more of what's going on in the background, so can understand and to a point agree with many comments, but in the end, i'm a tester more of than a real player, so for me, what ever they do is better than the 90% of steam rubbish which i don't play or get a chance to test either, so on reflection, i'd prefer to play something from them, no matter what than not have anything at all, other than FPS and the rest which everyone else does, which also sell in higher numbers for the most etc.
i'm a wargamer at heart, and while i'll test anything and download anything for free, i tend to not put my own money on things i don't enjoy and know 99% sure that one day i'll play, atm i don't have time to play much, but when i do, this is one of the best civil war games bar none and while the civil war wasn't really known to me before the game as something i'd play or be interested in, after it was done, i sure got a passion for the time and period so do play others now as well, but in the end keep coming back to this as it plays well and better imo than the others and i enjoy it, and do hopefully one day may get the chance to play some more battles in it.
it didn't get the modders attention, or the sale needed, but i can't take anything from any developer who makes game i like, no matter how they spend they free time, on or off the board, most now days think if a developer doesn't live and breath on the forum, they not good, which tbh isn't fair either, as while most don't even make a living out of games, and need a home life and a full time job to pay the bills, most don't seem to understand that without these sort of developers, we would have less games imo.
so no matter what, i'll support them, in either the forums, or in the background testing what ever there trying to do.
but this isn't a dig at anyone personal opinions either and not your's for sure m8 Rosseau
as if i didn't know some background stuff, i'd be thinking the same, but i don't voice negative comments as such, as for one now i'm older and over the years have said stuff which in hind sight came back to bite me once i knew or was told a reason why or what was happening, so now it's think it, don't print it for me.
and support anyone on any of the 3 forums / boards who give up there free time to make a game out of love and passion, where if they / anyone wanted to make real money, wouldn't maybe make war games that's for sure, as i'd guess most don't cover the costs where as a rubbish FPS or others types sells no matter what as there's always someone who will buy anything regarding those
