Given that we haven't even reached "beta" yet, that's probably a decent date to shoot for. Heck, I'd buy it right now if I could.

i agree with paullus99

the game is rock stable and aside from tweaking computer AI (which is tough on challenging) this game is purchasable now in muy opinion. nevertheless joel and gary are really taking it up a level adding chrome with different sound effects and adding art improvements. what i love about these guys are they are perfectionists (in my opinion)so i was alittle surprised by the "delay" if thats what it could be called because the game is extremely thorough and completely layable right now-we just have to increase its shine.

BTW. there is a new pbem 5 player testig game going on now.

it is entitled "Albatross" i sent the turn to a newer tester and it should be making its rounds shortly. -sorry i didn't take a screenshot for u-typical opening for me as Germany.

i took out france and Denmark sent troops to the Yugoslavia border-increased armament production for a "Super Barbarossa" scheduled tentatively for spring of 1941. I'll ask Dgold to take a screenshot (Fow is on so not sure what u will see)

So I have to wait for February. Hmmm.... If only I could go into hibernation for a couple months to make the wait shorter.

Even I, being just a lowly beta tester can say with 95% certainty that this game won't be out by november. Lets be realistic.


Oleg PROMISED, with 5% certainty, that the game would be released BY November. Now I feel 5% cheated. Where do I file a grievance??

And Maurice, you showed me a demo at WBC two months ago. Gimme, gimme, gimme!

Whenever you get this game finished, I'll be in line waiting for it.

Rats rats rats. Oh well, WitP will keep me busy (if the patch ever comes out).

I agree with Hertston, i mean its one thing to advertise for a christmas release product but for one that is over a half year away seems a little crazy.

It happens all the time in the "mainstream" gaming industry. I remember seeing ads for Half Life well over a year and a half before the game was released. Same with Half Life 2, Rome: Total War, not to mention some really extreme examples like SiN etc.

As for X-mas... since we betas all think this game is "buyable" even in its current state, I think you should applaud 2by3 for actually wanting to polish it to perfection, before release, and not "rushing" it to get to the X-mas market, as many other companies will do (it certainly seems doable given the state of development the game is in).

So bear with the devs some more, and we hope to entertain you with AARs and stuff in the meantime (though we got a bit lazy lately in AAR department).

Nah, I vote we rush it out for X-Mas and patch it for the Easter holidays

I am relieved to see that the game has been delayed so that the AI can be improved. After the AI fiasco in Rome:Total War, otherwise one of the greatest games ever made, it is nice to think we might get an AI in WAW that will make the game worth buying.

I hear you about Rome: Total War. I can not believe how stupid the AI is in that game. The sad part is even with crappy AI the game is still pretty fun to play so could you imagine how good the game would be if the AI could put up more of a fight?

The AI can really put you behind an 8-Ball in this game....as the allies, I've made my victorious march on Berlin, only to have the AI stage a counteroffensive that completely shatters my front (just yesterday I ended a game as Russia with Germany still controlling most of Eastern Europe - the AI smashed my forward troops & I didn't have enough time to recover).

This is an important point that solops made....the AI has improved significantly over the last few builds....it has become more aggresive and innovative, for example, I am seeing more Land/Sea/Air coordinated attacks by the AI, especially in the Mediterrainian...so patience does bring about its' own rewards............

I have to agree. I amazed at the AIs ability, it is very intuitive. I hate playing the AI in any game and much prefer humans but can see this one getting time on the airplane etc.

And if anyone is wondering which dope is allowing the Japanese to raid Australia like that....guilty as charged....but, my Germany first strategy might turn this game around in the next few turns...or...I might get my ass whooped as in a previous game....
