A good strategist knows that using the latest technology is key to victory and that maintaining outdated equipment can become a drawback for all of your troops. The same is true for supporting technology used to play Supremacy 1914.
Years ago, Supremacy 1914 received a complete visual makeover, designed for a new generation of technological equipment, and reflecting changed user expectations and Zeitgeist. Supremacy is dear to our hearts, which is why we decided back then to keep the old look and feel alive for players who had grown used to it as well as those who hadn’t the technical resources yet to experience the then new Supremacy 1914 as we envisioned it.
This decision meant that from that point on we needed to maintain both versions of the game, splitting our resources, well knowing that the efforts needed to maintain both would increase over time. We made this decision back then, and would do so again today.
We also knew that there would come a time when the efforts would no longer be feasible, and this day is approaching.
We monitored and analyzed how many Supremacy 1914 generals play the game in Legacy Mode the entire time. Looking at how much effort it is for the development team to make sure that the game and all of its current and future features are working as intended in Legacy Mode, we finally came to a conclusion and made the decision to discontinue the active support for Legacy Mode starting in October 2020. Until the end of the year, you will still be able to use it but any bugs exclusive to Legacy Mode won’t get fixed anymore. Also, new features will not be tested for compatibility with it.
The end of the year 2020 will then finally mark the end of life for Legacy Mode completely.
If you want to continue playing Supremacy 1914 without the increased risk of experiencing bugs and other inconveniences we recommend to switch to regular mode now.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause for some players, but we are convinced that the freed resources now can be used to fix bugs and develop content for all our players instead.
