You'll most likely all want the read the following message, as it will wrap up a significant portion of the entire threat.
First of all we want to once again thank everyone who participated in this thread for taking the time to share their thoughts and ideas on the matter. Many of you provided us with great ideas for improvements, others pointed out areas of concern but all of you did so because you care for Supremacy 1914. So much so that you continued to discuss the benefits of Legacy and what aspects of it you were missing in the Ultimate Client for well over a month, which is nothing short of admirable.
We initially planned to work on adjustments and improvements based on legacy feedback over the course of the following months after the removal. After seeing your passionate and honest reactions on the matter however, we decided to revise our plan.
We thrive to provide our players with the best World War 1 gaming experience possible and truly value the opinions of our players; especially those of our most loyal veteran players.
We will therefore commit the resources and time required to re-enable and keep Legacy running for now. This provides us with the necessary time to work on the adjustments to the Ultimate Client, while allowing you to continue playing Supremacy 1914 in your currently prefered way. You’ll find a button in the game settings that allows you to enable Legacy as an option again. Only players who previously had access to Legacy will see this option, though.
Please be aware that this does not mean Legacy will forever be present in Supremacy 1914 as it is quite old already and can only be kept running to a certain point. Should the point be reached that Legacy cannot be technically supported anymore or is blocking future changes, we will have to disable it once and for all. Until this point is reached however, we will do our best to keep Legacy running.
While the feedback we already received from you is a main driver for the adjustments to come, we strongly encourage veterans to regularly switch between Legacy and Ultimate to test and review these changes. As the final deactivation of Legacy is inevitable, a continuous and mutual dialogue is essential for Supremacy 1914 to be the best it possibly can be in the future.
We’re also planning a special event, exclusively available to veterans in order to determine the most cunning of strategists. Besides regular prices, a special and truly rare item will be awarded to the winner. Should you be keen to participate, we highly suggest you prepare for the occasion, as competition will be fierce.
Whether you’ll play Supremacy 1914 until the day Legacy will retire or continue your service beyond is up to you.Whatever your decision may be, we thank you for your long lasting loyalty to Supremacy 1914 and salute you as a veteran of the game.
Your Bytro Team
