V3 has to wait like 4 months for a real update. At best the 1.5 update could stall the decline but probably not.

Game can't be salvaged, not even with a dozen DLCs. Would require a total rewrite of basically everything because the core design of this game has always been the piece of shit that you see. They'd need to create a whole new game.

What is crazy is you can't add anymore super interesting mechanics since they already capped themselves on their peformance budget. Even if someone gave them a magical list of like 20 objectively awesome game systems they still couldn't save it since there's no space for those mechanics.

The funniest part is that by reading dev diaries about future plans and patches you can easily trach whn team budget was cut and all incompetent dudes who ruined Victoria 3 have been put on life suport.

This one. https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ria-3-dev-diary-91-post-summer-plans.1592114/
Entire dd filled with shit, absolutely unrelated to real problems. You can almost see how other heavy duty staff, like programmers, have been siphoned to real GSG games and mobile garbage like V3 is left with skeleton crew to move itscorpse from time to time and annountce that LINE GOES UP and WE ARE NOT DEAD WE ARE DOING*cough* GREAT.
So their future plans are...vineyards and "we'll countinue our hard and dedicated work". With recent beta it is even more aparrent - warfare now is not functioning at all. Literally.

FFS I thought that it couldn't be more funnie than sun debalce in their recent scam DLC, byt they outdid themselves. It appears that tanks are a direct REPLACEMENT for artillery good in army composition. Not addition but, instatnly all armies stop using artillery and start consuming tanks. Artillery vanishes from warfare overnight. Their incompetence is nmatched.

The dipshit commie devs hurt the initial sales as much as the shit design hurt the player retention.
Paradox was a day 0 purchase for me up until even CK3, no longer.

YouTube people saying the combat system is getting reworked in the test branch, which will ship with the next expansion.
I hope they just copy HoI4's combat already, simplified and adapted for the tech level.

Yeah, they do. Theyare reworking it to be at least minimally functional within no player control paradigm, not adding actual unit\division control, like in real Paradox games. In short - they are stalwart in furthering the most degenrate game mechanics ever. And they are also have no idea how tofix construction sector cookie clicker economy.
Oh, almost forgot - test branch combat is not working. Literally - battles cannot be completed and last forever and conscription in disabled.

CK2 has 1/5 the current players of V3 right now. Granted only like 40% of the 24 hour peak. But still lmao.
