    You know, as long gameplay will be to click on a trade icon up the screen every 5 sec people wont play that ever ...Each time i launch it , the same obvious issue appears, no trade automation, thats just a pain . Tood bad it add nice ideas like armies automation, that would be most welcome in other games.

    Uhhh...

    And I'm pretty sure they already added another feature to deal with trade request spam.

    Got this from the Humble bundle, though looking over the thread I'll make damn sure to wait until the big 2.0 patch before giving it a whirl. No sense jumping in now since I'd probably have to re-lean shit when the patch hits anyway.

    Same here. Will give it a spin at some point, but I have to overcome my current impression that it'll take me at most an hour to get bored with waiting for mana to paint the next tile on the map and uninstall.

    Game will still be shit... :smug:

    But yea, that is finally something decent to change, they desperately need to find some way to make this game stand apart from the others. And combat/armies would be a good place to start.

    needs a lot more mid/late mechanics to be enjoyable.
    having permanent "legions" (reaaally hope they dont name all the retinues legions) under the command of local govs can open the game into actual civil wars.

    I think developing towards permanent professional armies and expanding wealth (holdings) will necessarily add more civil drama like that.

    I'm quite optimistic about 2.0. I'm glad they are even bothering with updating the game though, considering how dead its fanbase is.

    I'm sure the AI totally won't fall flat on its face when trying to fight wars with levies.

    More positive news.

    The rather unexciting great wonders DLC has been merged into an upcoming content pack for the Diadochi, which adds mission trees and events for each of Alexander's successor states, as well as new music(!) and art.

    And 2.0 will have new models distinguishing legions and levies from one another, e.g. Romans.:

    Full dev diary, covering Legacy of Alexander content pack, Legion & Levy models, and then Seleukid mission trees:

    Imo all very positive. :)

    It would seem Paradox has managed to find their very own version of No Man's Sky.

    We shall dub thee 'No Man's Mediterranean Map Painter.'

    Haha ^^ so it would seem! I suppose the real 'test' of things will be how the 'relaunch' (I assume that they will push it as such?) goes and subsequent support/updates being greenlit by the useless suits who hold way too much sway over Paradox, the studio.

    I've skipped a few dev diaries because I'm not normally one to get excited about the ones that focus on mission trees — and if they're good I'd rather they be a surprise, anyway — but the one for the antigonids is pretty dope. :)

    Today's Dev Diary, 'The Longest Diary':

    Future of the game seems bright. :D Any of the naysayers daring to feel optimistic as well?

    The best way to get paradox games is on humble bundle for 1$ with most of the dlc, only impatient whales with too much time like me should buy at release.

    I agree with this. But i think the best thing to do for most people is to avoid getting paradox games in the first place. They suck, they are ridiculously overrated, and offer nothing of value. Ignore the shills and the whales who spent too much money and now they have to justify the purchase. The gameplay blows, Paradox couldn't create a decent strategy game even if their lives depended on it.
