Hey all,

I really like that people are excited that Vic2 is in development. This feels like an interesting and exciting project for all of us, however it is no secret I voted for another project from the Paradox dev team.

Johan assured me our fans want this project, and so did you (forum people) in a poll on this forum.

So in brief; I think this project never will see profit (reason is simple Vic1 was a terrible launch). Johan thinks it will. Johan and his team have the responsibility to create a good game and of course we hope that you will buy it since this was the most voted-for title in our poll.

So, what do I bring to the table except for whining? I have promised the dev team (and checked with my family) that I am shaving my head if this project ever sees profit. AND post pictures of it here in the forum.

We will have a budget meeting in the coming two weeks to see how many units we need to sell to reach our break-even; and keep you posted. Progress reports will follow.

And yes, I am serious. :)

Cheers,
Fred

That is a pretty good idea Fredrick. Show the consumers how much confidence you have in the product and encourage people to buy more. I shall enjoy seeing your bald pictures! :D

Maybe you should look into making that wager part of your marketing strategy complete with the promise of posting the pictures on the forums for all to see :)

Just curious, how do we know that he doesn't already have his head shaved so that this is just a marketing trick?

And yes, I am that paranoid :D

This is me

However, my wife tells me I'm better-looking in real life :)

Edit: yes it's free to say shaving my head would be an improvement. ;)
