Very well deserved. I've only had PzC a week, and I'm already more addicted to it than any triple-A title I've played this year (though I did burn more than 100 hours in Dead Island :) )

PC is truly a great game!

I really look forward to where they go with future expansions and iterations of the game (hoping for a naval version)

Thx

Excellent showing... grabbing three spots in the top ten (including first place) is a remarkable achievement. A well-deserved honor, congrats to Slitherine, Lordz and the PzC development team for a job well done. :)

Yes indeed, well deserved honors. KUDOS! HUZZAH!
Old Timer Panzer General fan. Maybe a Volksturm soldier now. Did they let Volksturm drive Panzers?

5USD DLC addon campaigns managed to rank higher than full games? Interesting, I would assume they were just be incorporated as part of Panzer Corps... I guess would interpret that as 43+8+5. But hey don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining!

Congratulations!

Though I didn't get it where on the Usenet or on which page Panzer Corps won?

All I could find was this so far. It shed a little light on why the DLC campaigns got their own separate mention at least.

Haven't played past the point where I recognised the UI and scenario as (basicall) identical to the original Panzer
General. Then loaded the first GC '39 scenario and REALLY had to work against the AI.

Haven't gone back to the vanilla game so I don't feel competent to judge..
