Taking into consideration that Bytro mixed here new grahics, with new unit system and new map without giving time to familirize with any of them ( maybe except graphics).
Having road system that completely changes way how you move on the map.
Adding to chaos newbies who cannot even cover roads on that map and use defense unit to attack and offense unit to defend.
You finish without a country as 1 enemy inf walks into you country using highway passing by your allies - I still say it is chaos not worth a time.
In general - from Supremacy we have here 0 content. So all experience from playing supremacy is usless IMHO.
I cannot even recognize if I am attacking French , British or Neutrals. Or if my southern neighbour is in front of me or behind me. Adding to confusion AI allied units walking everywhere. And those huge graphic objects covering map so I cannot even see if I am standing in town or next to town or if I am walking into town or already fighting...
Tooooo much untested content in one go. If you have introduced that bit by bit. First Graphic, then map, then road system, in the end new units- maybe it would be possible to swallow it, but throwing everything to one pot and hoping it will work somehow and people will use it because they will get 10 k GMs.... well I must say I regret wasting my time even for that 10 k Gms as I can but they for 1 pound anyway
As a game designer I must say I would not risk it that way. To much to lose on a producers side. People can be put off from new updates and events. They can assume this is a new way how things will work. Some like schkopen already started to look for a new game ;-). There is a good reason why some people play COW and hate Supre, and same reason have people who play Supre and hate COW...
Do it step by step and allow us to play map with new graphic (if you cannot run it in Legacy) but without new units. Step by step.
Do you remember how many people left when you allowed HitAndRun and then moved from Java to HTML. Same thing will be happening here I guess. You will probably have to look for a new base of players.
Anyway thanks for the huge effort, but ..
