My theory is that TW has been finished long time ago, but its not being released because devs and the rest of the crew enjoy watching us get impatient way too much. I bet they just sit in some nice, exotic place  and eat various delicacys served on golden plates, checking the forums from time to time to laugh at our misery. Same goes for FH2 eastern front patch. They may claim otherwise, but I know the truth!

Damn!!! You made a perfect guess.

Well, now we have to change our plates to silver.

And really, TW as it is now is more in development for like 4 years and the standalone even younger than that. Few switches in the history of TW, can read about it on the site.

 The 1st news post from their website "Update #1: The Road to Berlin..." is from May 2008.

http://www.tractionwars.com/news-room/533-update-1-road-berlin.html


 That is over 5 years ago my friend. And still no release.

 Just saying....

 ;)
Which is long before the standalone move.

The longer it takes, the better it gets. I don't get why you feel the need to point out it's taking a while, we obviously are aware of that. We're not delaying it on purpose or something. Or are we?

 Sir i am not pointing fingers at anyone, just stating the truth.....

 .....but also pointing out that you were incorrect.


 So, with all this new information on the table, will we possibly see an Alpha by the end of the year?

I think Traction Wars is making all the stuff for Chapter One, endlessly waiting.

WOW!  :o Awesome!

I cant believe how TW devs fart out updates so frequently when FH2 has once a month :(

No, Jimi. We don't do release dates nor guesses on when we might have what. Will only end in disappointment. And as I stated before, that's not the stand alone. And I don't think you fully comprehend what making something like that fully takes. Credit is due to all our developers who work tireless to make this. In their spare time. For you. For free.

I don't think it matters if it's released tomorrow or in five years. It's free and made by.. humans.

And Turkish, we had months without updates in the past. But these past months have been a whirlwind of efficiency. FH2 had these phases, and we have them now.

Adding into the whole discussion of development taking awhile,

As mudra and fuchs said, we've had our hurdles, especially early on. Over the past year or so things have really picked up, and show no sign of slowing down. Hopefully this is blatantly evident by looking at the very rapid flow of news updates/public interaction that we work hard behind the scenes to correlate content for.

The game takes quite some time to make, Traction Wars is something we all create in our spare time (everyone here is probably familiar with this concept, as the Fh2 devs did/do the same thing). Progress is going well, things are definitely forming together behind the scenes in a very satisfactory manor.

There is a LOT more cool stuff to show on a pretty consistent basis at this point - so keep your eyes open for more and more :)


To sum it all up - development is going great, it takes time... we are making a game with epic intentions!

 Ok Fuchs, point made.

 Just...my girl could have given birth to a child and it would be ready to start school in 5 years..

but as you said, "I don't think it matters if it's released tomorrow or in five years. It's free and made by.. humans"

I suppose modding is a life for some.....


 Anyways, hope to play this someday.
 ;)

The name 'Traction Wars' comes from the origins of the game, back when it started, it was intended to be a steampunk type mod in battlefield 2142 based on "Hungry City Chronicles". Things changed quickly.

You can read the game's full history here: http://www.tractionwars.com/content/113-about/182-history.html

yeah is definitely a different name, but confused me a little at first. if i just heard the name without knowing anything about the game, i probably wouldnt think its a WWII fps genre.

You thought he was dead? We all had bets on you succumbing to alcohol like 5 years ago.
