Fun, fun and fun. Simply way to relax!
It is horrible that somebody could have fun and relax with these kind of games where only huge crowds placed in one place stupidly fight to the death of last man and where fast mass killings is typical way to victory.
It is crazy and can not be fun in long term for many people, because simple fast clicking and sending crowded masses only in few directions, which kills every one man on their road soon can be bore. Some hard core players of course still can play this games, but majority abandon them and go to modern games.
Therefore I prefer proper historical tactic, realistic combat, casualties ratios, good topographic maps, well chosen units which wore proper uniforms, have good statistic and balance. It can makes more realistic strategy, where player should more think how to win the war game. It can be more interesting and there could be prepared more mods and add-ons too, because more things there can be modable or can get make up, at last during short Napoleonic period were few army reforms and uniforms changed few times too. This way that kind of game can get more satisfaction, better fun and have longer live time.
Don't you think that people have too many napoleonic games to choose. It is risk to realise one more now.
Funny, it is a kind of question like this one – don’t you think that people have too many cars to choose. It is so risky produce one more now. Then why motor cars companies produce many new models every year, isn’t more risky than next computer game? Every company specialized in some kind of products normally try develop something new or even next models because they know that it make progress and gives money. If someone can not take a risk, this one lost money, because he lost his place on a market.
If someone lost market and still lost money then this one soon go into bankruptcy like cdv Germany did. It was sad case, and really hard.
If cdv USA or better say GSC Ukrainian company can not take a risk with next rts Napoleonic game then fine, let they try with next STALKER game. But they must remember that living with one series games will be hard.
People want to simple game even if it will not be historical. They look at number of health points units than uniforms. Faster they change strenght of attack than models of units.
I do not think so. There are many people which like historical based games, however it is hard to find really good historical game. Look at rumours about Total War series games. There were many complains about uniforms and historical accuracy in Empire TW. It was developer’s simple mistake and then they change their treatment and develop much better uniforms for Napoleon TW, however they do not improved few other needed things and this way do not recover all players trust.
Now it is only dream. To prepare new game they should make new engine etc. find money for ad campaings, payments etc. It is not easy like it looks.
But it is their job, and interest to develop computer games, and when they take this risk, they should make something more then still develop only the one kind of STALKER games.
It is not enough to grow up basing only on one model products. They also should develop something different, maybe less popular, but more interesting for historical funs which can be loyal customers and that is the best way to make money.
Good business plan always include financing aspects, but in the beginning should show an interesting idea. Then they will can get money. If they will do nothing interesting, they will have not money.
What you want from us?
More activity at this site? Writing about ideas for mods (which most of them will never exist because of limits of game engine), about mapping about gameplay tactics, strategies, uniforms or history?
Or maybe you want from us to start massive walkout with letters, petitions etc. until they start working new game?
Or you try to said that you are sad because no one interesting Csx series? You want to express your feelings?
More activity of course is welcome.
It can help to make some kind of rumours about new game, which will be welcome too.
I am not so sad that some people lost their interest to Csx series, and I do not need to express my feelings about that matter.
