i just looked at your website and saw FTG as the 3rd most sold game, i love FTG and its concept(historical events ftw) but are you guys suprised by its success for a game whose graphics are substandard and relies on the player to do all of the imagining for themselves and do you think the gaes success shows content is the way forward, not graphics?
Actually, thats the 3rd most sold game that day.

To be entirely honest, the sales of FTG have not been as good as we had hoped or expected.

:(

My main bane is
The worst people on these FTG forums/threads are the criticizes from day 1 in regards to FTG, who never did own FTG ........I never seen this happen in other forums/threads for other titles.
You can criticize a game but ONLY if you own that particular game. ( as I have done )
These "non owning" criticizers are a cancer to the forums and should have been banned by Paradox

I agree but I've seen people doing this for every release on these forums since I registered. They're pests, but expected pests.
I don't agree they should've been banned unless the rules are changed to make game registration mandatory though. The official stance is that it's ok to own a game without registering it but you cannot expect access to the tech support forums and to be listened to by the developers and because of this that's how they must enforce the rule.

Another interesting (and to me unexpected) statistic that was mentioned is that basic EU2 is also one of the worst sellers for paradox when it comes to their own games. Makes me a bit impressed they supported it for so long.
