The Creative Assembly has issued an apology over Rome'2 current state, and hopes to reassure fans that they are working hard to fix the game's problems.
Hi everyone and thanks for your attention.
We just wanted to reassure you that we do know itís an extremely annoying and frustrating time for some of you at the moment and we are working around the clock to sort out those issues that you are having. The first patch has just gone up - it's not trouble-free we know and are fixing with a hotfix, but there will be another next week and every week after that till the problems are gone.
At the moment it may seem that the changes are slight, but they arenít the only ones we are working on currently and bigger changes are happening now for future patches.
If you are having a problem, it is totally unacceptable and a big deal for us, please know that we are spending all our dev effort on fixing outstanding issues.
I realise in our rush to do that we havenít updated you on the situation, so if you are interested, please read on.
A bit off-topic: I swore off the RTS genre about 10 years ago because I just didn't seem to like it as much as everyone else seems to, but now I'm thinking about giving it another shot.
1. What has changed (if anything) in the RTS genre over the last decade?
2. Which game(s) would you suggest to someone who didn't like RTS ten years ago?
The reason I chose to stop playing these is that I felt like I was playing the same game over and over. You learn which units are good for disrupting the enemy's base and killing his units in a raid and build those early, and then raid, then you macro and build an army while defending until you counter the enemy's army successfully and counter-attack for the win. Rinse and repeat.
A lot of companies detest having to pay for QA. Why can't the developers just test their own stuff, you know?

Sorry? lol Sorry come after 'shit' and before 'suicide' in the dictionary. These 'sorry' ass games companies should issue partial refunds on their partially shipped abortions they want us to buy. I am so glad I waited to get this game.
