Well, I guess both the question and the answer seem fair given the overall communication to-date.

However, going back one step, are there already any preliminary time indications when (public) beta testing might start, e.g. in the order of magnitude of Q2, Q3, Q4 of 2019? Thanks!

as part of the others in the first question, i have no idea but hopefully someone from staff may know and while normally nothing of the nature is given away, some ideas must be known and a general ruff idea maybe hinted on hopefully, maybe :roll: :wink:

The game is in second round of alpha testing.
The first round found issues that took a month or two to fix.
They need to fix any problems found in the alpha and have a short campaign written before they do the beta.

LOL, second round of alpha testing? There are rounds? What about CI, continuous testing, testing automation, machine learning (playing AI against AI)?
I am looking forward to the second anniversary of the announcement (March 17), and not even having a date.

Maybe we could all get together and play Risk with some pizza and beer around:D

Interesting thought with the second anniversary of the announcement, this post is from 8 March 2017:

On the other side, they have already admitted that they had announced it too early maybe...

The design team is ~5 people total. This is not IBM with millions to spend on development.
They take as many rounds as they need.

Other than these forums I have no 'inside' info. But from these forums I have determined that yes that they are on a second round of alpha testing if not third. Since 'the first rule of alpha testing is you don't talk about alpha testing' I will not give you the details, if you look hard enough, and think a little you can see it also.

The market for PzC2 is people, not AI, they want a game that people like to play, I doubt than many AI will buy the game, even if they love playing it.
