You started with an idea, turned it into a popular mod and then put two years into making it into a game.

    It's sad that it had to end this way, but congratulations for making it this far and good luck for the future.
    Agreed. Fail up, not down!

    We should all hope that grand strategy games continue to be developed covering this time period. There is not a lot of choice.

    And it also had bad publisher-developer drama.
    I'd say the best example of it working (commercially) are the various Hearts of Iron II derivatives.

    Yes of course! That must have been their plan all along!

    My sympathies to Paradox for being tugged along.

    Well, that's just too bad.
    I hope somebody will now take the opportunity to port MM to Divine Wind - and I couldn't ask for more.

    It depends... I spent a lot of time working on this game, so I really would be happy if the community could enjoy it. However, after what happened around in the last times, I couldn't be happy if the game would be released like a Paradox game with no involvement of UV (at least looking from outside).

    I know you'll vehemently disagree, but I always saw MMtG as EU3.5 anyway. Anyhow, if EU4 does come along with 'surprisingly similar features', you should feel proud that your ideas have been taken up.

    I see this as a kind of "The King is dead - long live the King!"

    We can't officially, because the engine still belongs to Paradox. And UV doesn't have the money to buy it.

    I would because it would be a regressive step in terms of "fun". Believe it or not, most people like to play games for fun not to have their balls twisted.

    They won't release EU4 without first having made a new engine. Maybe an expansion though...?

    Guys, don't turn this thread into a "MMtG will be resurrected as EU4" thread.
    That's wishful thinking at the very least.
    And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.
