Veji is right about the forum activity. I have never seen the forum this dead, not in over ten years.
The situation is that the team is totally busy with developing the new game system, which means that greatly desired improvements to other games that need them, such as Wars Of Napoleon, are not being done, because there are no resources to work on them. Further patching and improvements to PON, which needs them, are no longer possible, for the same reason.
And you are not allowed to help build enthusiasm for the new game system because marketing will not let you?
And the publication of Wars of Succession, which sounds like an amazing game which could really kindle interest and activity, is being delayed apparently because Matrix wants to publish other games first?
If the game is ready, delaying it is misguided. It needs to to be published as soon as possible, not maybe sometime before Christmas.
Wars of Succession was originally supposed to come out last spring.
There is more than one way for a game company to wither away, and I fear that the current situation is having that effect. When you do not have important new patches or DLC or exciting new games to discuss, with info from the developers, this happens.
That said, I strongly disagree that this forum be ended and merged with the Matrix forums. That would do even more to reduce interest in all things Ageod.
I respectfully request that you consider letting marketing, or someone, know the situation, and how your long term fans are desperate for new information, to keep up our interest.
