    I know: you devs out there are busy working for the next big patch which will quite probably be another step to total bliss with regard to the game – but then what? A new game to tackle? Another expansion? Arena battles? Mod tools?

    Feed us some morsels of news tidbits, please! 🙂

    Living Archon titans. I wage 50 gold on it. It’ll be so sweet to have alot of them and not constrained by a typical bad production of a dwelling.

    Last thing I heard was they’re trying to tap into the browser market.
    Working Title “Mana Clicker”.
    Not sure what that means, I personally don’t use browsers.

    Ooooh, will it be a Facebook game I can only progress through sending invitation messages to my friends? I love those!

    I heard they are branching out into board games. See Talisman for inspiration.

    And will there be magic strawberries that can be bought for 10 euros, which makes you win in multiplayer games? I have trouble finding them atm.

    #205258

    you Lord forget the elite membership, where you get extra customization options, a Leaderboard with your statics, get some VIP servers to play on, reduce the loading times with 50% and gives you double XP.

    Also there should be overpriced DLC maps that are copies from older games. and of course only finish half of the game selling the other half as DLC packs and “pre-order!” bonuses. A In-game casino where you can bet with “Triumph gems©” (now for 10 euro for 100 gems!) and have a change to get some “rare” customizable gear and hair colors

    I’ve always thought getting your cp refilled every turn was OP. I would like it if your cp only recharged once every real world day, with the possibility to buy more through micro transactions.

    Also, custom leader costumes please!

    Talisman on Itunes

    I wouldnt expect any news until after the Open Beta becomes the next official patch.

    Triumph is looking for a new Artist though, so things are happening.

    Did you apply? I saw their advert on Facebook and my immediate thought was “Tibbles?”

    Why do we need news? I’m happy playing the game, I don’t need a constant report feed as well.

    Most news is super depressing, there needs to be more delightful Triumph news to make the world a better place.

    Until then I suppose one unicorn probably dies each day there isn’t news.

    Actually, when Triumph posted news abut ending of AoW development at middle on June it was depressing enough.

    It seems that EL wasn’t very successful. Results from some sites prove this indirectly.

    No! They would… they could… they simply can not do that! *bursts into tears*

    At least they should come up with decent modding tools then. So this awesome project would not be totally abandonned…

    Look at graph. Amount of players wasn’t so high when at release of original game.

    The PBEM mode ha radically changed how my friends and I play. Instead of logging in for multi-player games for 3-4 hour blocks we play for 5-10 minutes every hour or so..

    That will effect things like this chart.

    But take a look on an average stabilized amount of players (I mean if to exclude peaks).
    Just before the Expansion it was about 900 average playing. Right now it’s 1500. It still had not stabilized, however, but I do believe that the game will have more constant players after expantion that it had before it.

    I could feed you news!!!! But I would just be a troll feeding you lies. So if you want troll lies I am here in place of the developers :P.

    Good point.

    Another thing I got out of that is that it appears EL sold much better than GR.

    Nonetheless, overall I am pessimistic. I think the devs are done with the game.

    I would also like to hear something from devs what they think at the moment regarding further expanding the game. I don’t believe in EL size expansion, but I hope for 1 or maybe even 2 GR size ones 🙂

    You don’t understand how it works. Triumph profit doesn’t care about how much constant players game has. It isn’t mmo with month pays or f2p projects with donate where amount of player is critical for financial success.

    Fact is that around 315k copies of game were sold on steam. It’s solid for niche project like AoW, but doesn’t enough for gaining big profits. Support of game is very expensive. Servers maintenance, coders and artist job. I heard the rumors about EL will be last addon I’m not sure that EL was enough profitable to support further development of AoW series. That’s why we hear rumor about board game. Development of small games for tabletops is much more profitable.

    Also I want to advice devs to think carefully about small dlcs for AoW3. Appearance of leaders, maybe?
    Such dlcs for some companies are very beneficial.

    Am I mistaken in remembering a Triumph employee posting on this very board that EL did very well?

    #205510

    It got to number 2 in Steam sales chart…beaten only by Grand Theft Auto 5…

    Not quite sure why people love to be pessimistic about things here…

    That’s called a joke.
