I agree. I think the developers are making a huge mistake switching over to 3d when the majority of players here prefer 2d. Panzer Corps is a niche game with a small, but loyal fan base. Devs, do not turn your back on that base who have stuck with it through each series and have kept you in the money.So , looking through the forums maybe 80-85% of players do not want 3d?
This is a niche game and most of the players you will get are already here .
You may attract some newbies , but it is a game where you can`t expect a massive influx of players .
If the current players were interested in fancy graphics do u think they would be playing PC?.
And if the new players were into fancy graphics would they be playing PC?
Don`t stuff if
A strategy game should be about game play first, and graphics second. I played Order of Battle (which is very similar to Panzer Corps), and it runs much slower on my computer compared to PC, plus the 3d looks like crap. It also has a 2d graphics setting option, and that looks even worse. The quickest way to kill off this game series is to ignore your core fan base and switch to 3d instead of sticking with 2d and focusing on improving game play and AI.
A lot of your player base is older people who have older and slower computers. 3d games always run slower than 2d. Many of us are either retired, or close to it, and do not have disposable money to buy a new computer every time you decide to update the next version of PC with fancy 3d graphics. Older players generally prefer great game play over fancy graphics. Again, do not bite the hand that feeds you by ignoring your fan base who wants Panzer Corps 2 to stick with 2d graphics.
