Hello everyone, and for those who play on ICO, or have played on ICO I play under the handle [DT]Star Player.
Sins has been a terrific game, since when i bought it in the beginning of '08 i had very few game play concerns. I can only think of what the online community in this game could have been had Ironclad got to the bottom of minidumps sooner. I had never, ever seen such a great, but technically challenged game. I sit here now, amongst an ever dwindling online community that is lucky to pass 50 players online in primetime. I have searched the web looking for info on sins 2 but i have found nothing solid.
Ironclad, you have a great game going here, you deserve to at least inform your community if you are going to come out with a sequel to the game. Wouldn't it make more sense to announce now, and ask what people would like in the new sequel? You lost your first online playerbase with minidumps, don't let it happen again in Sins 2, thats all I can say. The sky is the limit, and so would your bottom line if you marketed Sins 2 properly. I can't think of many people who wouldn't pay a 50-60 dollar price tag to fill their sins fix.
If you were considering another game, realize that sequels are often the most successful from a pure business stand point, and in this case, you would be loved by the RTS community. SoaSE is a diamond in the rough, a gem worth treasuring, so give us a new gem, something new to laud and praise. Just please have it be without minidumps.
If anyone has thoughts, feel free to share.
