This game seems really cool. Looking forward to it!

A couple of things ive been wondering though,

Firstly, ive been looking for a release date. I understand setting a specific date is hard but the only thing ive seen is Q1 2009. I think the deadline for that is tomorrow so it would be surprising:) but it would be nice to get an approximate date. Q2? Q3?

Second question is about units! Ive seen some units on screenshots, but it would be awesome to have a list and see all the units the races have. Also will there be units specific to subraces(like the desert orcs have a unit the forest orcs dont)?

Again im really looking forward to this game, has alot of potential!
Keep up the good work

For the unit list, can you say if we will get all units (including monsters and mercs, if they are included) or only those of the player races ?

New site with unit list? interesting, I'm already curious if humans are using helmets such as those ---> http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/1516/hemyredniowieczne.jpg
I have noticed that soldiers with halberds wear number 4 helmet, any other units are using number 1 perhaps? or my favorite here - number 2? that one gives such a nice mysterious/evil/fantasy look hehe.

That seems like a fairly old screenshot, though I doubt those units have been changed.

Is Q3 like September? Also will the new site be regularly updated (not a dig at the old one)? It will just be a lot more useful to have a site that contains all the new information as well as having it in the forums so people who search the game in a search engine or click a link from somewhere else will see a website that doesn't have really old news and such.

Problem is that Q3 could refer to the fiscal year (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiscal_year), or the calendar year (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_year). The fiscal Q3 ends at the end of June, while the calendar Q3 ends with September.

Normally I'd just assume it was calendar year, but you never know.

Its been my experience in beta testing that when they give quarters for release date its the calendar year quarter not fiscal.

Never the less game is way past it original release projection so what 3 more months

I just remember when Spore was coming out they kept talking in fiscal quarters. That was actually the point where I learned the difference.

By the way, I apologize for comparing Spore to DoF.

I guess I need to wait for a new site and official unit list to get to know more about human helmets etc. (it is kind of fetish hehe - armors in fantasy games :p )

hmmm a fetish for pixellated armour..... straaaange :p
It is always good to know what the armours look like because it just makes the game look awesome, especially if we do get to choose a colour for example, then knowing armours would be useful...

They aren't really pixelated. Maplestory has everything pixelated including armor and other games like that :P

It is really good thing, to know a little more about it check my post in Off topic - "What’s your favorite movie of all time?" thread, hmn and I think they are wearing helmet number 2 or 3.

Medieval Nazis? No such thing?

If you're talking about credit cards, simple, don't use them. I rarely ever use mine and when I do I always know for a fact I have the money sitting in the bank to pay it off.

No he is talking about THE credit crunch here in Britain, where money is getting hard to come by and the depression is beginning to hit hard. Economists predicted it would happen but no-one wanted to listen as everyone was prospering so much, now everyone is paying the price... I still blame America for setting the ball rolling though :p lending so much money out to people who couldnt pay it back :(

Ice the easiest way to survive the credit crunch right now is to keep on learning, jobs are harder to come by and most people will have a lot more to offer than someone straight out of school. Go to 6th form/college and then possibly uni to give yourself some more time to prepare as the economy sorts itself out.

My tip would be to try and get a job at a company that is recession proof. Certain types of businesses that what they provide people can't go without, this would mean government, power, fuel, health and some others I probably just can't put to mind right now.

If you're going back to school don't fall for a lot of those small colleges that promote jobs in "popular" areas. These are the schools where you pay $10K for a 1-2 year course and at the end of it there are 35 of you looking for a job in a sector where there are only 20 jobs.

The other option is taking a job in a different country. Some countries are more economically stable right now and are starving for good intelligent workers. Just make sure you get into a situation where you are guaranteed employment for x period of time, most companies will gladly give a 6 mths to a year guarantee if you're loyal enough to move for them. You don't want to make the commitment to move and then you're out of a job in 3 months.

Or if you are like us here at Reverie and you want to design games... Videogame companies tend to do better in recessions because people are staying home more, and videogames as far as entertainment vs. money spent are generally in a good position. You spend $59 for a game that can give you 30+ hours of entertainment, versus $25 for a movie that will give you 2 hours? So if you have the skills to do what we do, then that's a good way to go. Though it can be hit or miss, you always have to remember entertainment is usually a gamble because taste is very relative.

Sadly, the gaming industry seems to have been dealt a blow as well.

Video game industry sales finally take a hit (http://news.cnet.com/8301-10797_3-10221645-235.html)

March revenues for the video game industry dropped 17 percent from a year ago, the NPD Group reported Thursday, the first time in the current recession that the business has seen sales fall.. (http://news.cnet.com/8301-10797_3-10221645-235.html)

Sadly, the gaming industry seems to have been dealt a blow as well.

So they're down for one month compared to last year and suddenly it's the end of the world? Gimme a break. A slight fluctuation in game release dates can have a big impact on overall sales, and a major holiday falling in a different month is more than enough to do that.

The guy forgets that Easter is a double-whammy. In addition to people buying less in March because the holiday wasn't there this year, publishers are also publishing less because they know it.

They probably don't have a finalized released date anyways, so our guess is as good as their's.

I don't post as much as they do, but rest assured I'm lurking in every topic :-)
