Developers don't care about this game or the community

    Since release there are a lot of long standing bugs that have been reported to you many times and you do nothing about them or even discuss what you are going to do to try to resolve them.

    Honestly it's kind of ridiculous now, there is so much that is broken with this game I would be here all day writing about it, one only has to read the numerous ignored threads on these forums.

    Infact, the only time a response is really given is when someone leaves a bad response on steam which your community mangers are on like flies on shit trying to get the review changed.

    Very dissapointed and I like many others expected much more from GSC Gameworld.

    But it does not change anything. Already tried. And more than once. Nothing helps. Project is stillborn.

    I agree. The developers don't care about this game or the community. I continued playing and modding long after I felt it was hopeless. I am now quitting. The game engine and game implementation is not professional. If anyone cares when OCMOD3 stops working after a patch they can leave a message on this forum. I will do easy fixes to keep it running if anyone wants. Honestly, I doubt anyone cares. I myself won't be playing C3 or OCMOD3 any more. The frustration for me is just too great. I mean with respect to how badly the game engine performs and all the bugs that never get fixed.

    Only if ''the game'' had STALKER production quality on top of its modding capacity the long existing community from the early cossacks era could handle the frustrating mechanics post-mortem. Now developers are in on the trend rush...

    Yeah I too believe that the game is basically dead. They will still announce C3 tournaments or so but that wont keep me bonded to the game. The thing is that I considered the last season ladder so extremely boring, basically just 17c pike and mercs barely any other units and not much tactics except capturing stuff or rush/raid. So I am not excited to see the new replays on youtube.

    At the beginning I thought that modding would keep me entertaining but neh, there were a ton of problems and things I couldnt do. Together with the early constant patches (=everything from the beginning), and one insanely bad AI I lost interest as well. The relatively small modding scene right now also seals my C3 modding fate.

    Also, even so I dont have Mac but what the developers are doing isnt nice. Say, sorry we gave up Mac, or Mac will not come this year, maybe 2019 or anything. Just look at their facebook page, how few people post their, most of them are asking for mac. Also no new infos, like we stopped working on C3 or we do planing new dlc. ABSOLUTELY NO NEW INFO for quite a long while except tournaments.

    I will still visit this forum. Maybe to get the info that American Conquest 2 is in production or anything like that. But honestly I dont think that I will play C3 much longer. And I am 100% sure that the forum will get less and less visitors.

    The developers have this mentality of not saying when they have problems. It was seen even before the release. The ad campaign for game was 0, but they said "you don't see, our staff is doing its best, we have over 9000 coverage" etc. After release, one of the admins tried to tell this bullshit, "every game has problems, look at other games in steam, we have not that much bugs" etc. And don't forget they said in an interview more than a year before the release that "the game is 80% complete" : ))) Do not know, what is the true reason of this mentality, but it pissed everyone off from the very beginning.

    The community doesnt care about mods either so even tho id love to play cossacks there isnt anyone to play with.

    I find completely ridiculous bugs in CA so long after release its a good indicator that out of my 1000 subs exactly nobody is playing annihilation

    well I have played some mods but unfortunately most mods are multiplayer based. Currently I have terrible internet problems. Dont know why but I lose internet connection quite often so currently no internet play. Gonna leave here hopefully soon. I remembering playing Cossacks 1 imperia quite a while against the AI, was pretty hard but doable. I still hope for a a good mod with reasonable AI but I think that will never happen.

    And I really enjoy to watch professional multiplayer games, especially 1vs1. Starcraft Broodwar is on of my favourites but I do enjoy other RTS as well. I have a passion for lets play and stuff like that. If there would be any professional videos I would like to know. Its a shame that there are barely any C3 youtube videos with mods. There are streamer who constanly upload new replays of C3 (like colourfit) but its basically always the same stuff. Even if you look on youtube "cossacks3 mods" you barely find any videos (i dont care for visual or sound only mods). Also some stuff/videos are not in english language which is also great.

    I would ask some of these professional players to upload some modding games or ask the developers to let them make a top 5 mod content and post it on their facebook page. But I think its way too late now.

    Look im glad you have fun with it but i found out 2 months after releasing switzerland that it was completely unplayable because peasants had no buildings assigned to them.

    Stuff like this makes me really question who even gives a single damn about my mod anymore.

    I like your Mods ( I've subscribed to both ) and I am impressed by the work you have done, but like Hansol333 I am not an online player. I prefer to play against the A.I, although Cossacks 3 is not entirely to my liking, it would be better for me if it were more like Cossacks 2 or Risk where you would capture territories before gaining a victory.;)

    I am a American Conquest player from China. Many of my friends are playing this historic game. I have written to the developers to appeal the Chinese translation, many times . I also ask for the source codes of the American Conquest, because I want to add Chinese language to the game by myself. But NO REPLY! I even left a message to Sergiy Grygorovych on facebook messenger, and I know he saw it, But NO REPLY!
    Then I started playing Cossacks 3 . Chinese players are already the largest groups In steam. In the same way, I appeal to them for Chinese translation. But NO REPLY!
    One day, I told them I can not register for this official forum. They immediately responded to me and helped me solve the problem. Therefore, I asked them questions about Chinese translation. But they told me MAYBE
    Oh!I completely understand!
    They do not care about the newest game. They will certainly not care more about the game which is release in 2003.

    Well I assume that most players are over the age of 12 and by now in the year 2018 most people should understand English. Well truth is that my English was pretty bad when I was a teen but after 2 years of study in another country its now enough to understand basically everything. Its also terrible if I look for some private WOW server and everyone speaks another language. Become mature and accept that we are living in the 21. century. Everyone should speak english.

    I once tried German C3 cossacks and WTF, translation was such a mess that I never looked at it again. But who cares its not an RPG with a deep story line with spoken dialogues. In that case I might would select German language but other then that I prefer English.

    According to their latest Facebook post mac is still in development and almost finished. They even released a small balance patch with some very minor changes. However thats still not enough for me. I want info about new dlc or a new game.

    Honestly I wanted them to make a new American Conquest, and had quietly hoped that Cossacks 3 was just the start of a long line of sequels, but now I don't want them to. If they made a half cooked sequel to a game I loved with historical inaccuracies, units that were uninspired and looked similar to every other unit in game, broken gameplay mechanics and an engine that guaranteed that modders couldn't work their magic and turn it into a work of art it would only make me angrier at the developers and regret wanting a sequel in the first place.
