Now there will be a gamersgate version as well which is what i will get. It's important to keep the pressure as soon as sub-forum for the game is open in the Paradox forums.

Thats one of the things we want with this game.

This sounds pretty good!

First, beautiful, hand drawn, maps are ageod trade mark. For me, they are important immersion factor. Also, it seems armies will be represented by generic 3d soldier figures. I don't like them. At least, please give us option to use scalable nato symbols like in hoi3.
Second, i never liked real-time mechanics of paradox games. I wonder how this will impact people who are preferring to play pbem game?

So it troubles me even more: with gameplay close to Victoria II (minus industry, voting system, etc.) it will have only 1/10 campaign length of the former. I am sure there will be no scenarios aside of "Grand Campaign", cause they will be beaten in 5 min.
Whatever you do, please PLEASE don't use the Paradox combat model of two guys standing around shooting at each other for a month while a screen you can't control flashes faux "frontages" at you.
The Paradox combat model is a completely [color="Red"]nonsensical mess of mismatched concepts[/color]. If a "battle" lasts a month, then it must include some concept of maneuver. Fine. But then what do the shifting "frontages" represent? Does the tactical engagement last for a full month?!!?
Conceptually, I understand what they're driving at. The frontages represent tactical advantages gained by force composition, technical advances, etc. Fine. But the AGEOD engine does a far better job of presenting those same concepts in the form of pre-battle maneuver, followed by by a discrete battle. Same result but in a much more reasonable way.
[color="red"]The combat model is one area where Paradox needs to learn from AGEOD and not vice versa. [/color]Perhaps some hybrid of the two is best. But the Paradox model that has been around, with little change in the core concept, since EU1 is a major drag on the franchise.
Please no more guys who stand around for months and grunt at each other!
