Release date change
Hi all, I have just updated the release date to January 2021.
A lot can happen between now and then, but I am confident we can publish then or sooner.

We also hope to have a closed alpha test in some two months so stay tuned.

As always, thanks for staying with us!

In short, I don't believe so unfortunately. I think it will be a close call releasing in January and we probably won't have the bandwidth for it.
Tell you what: If money will be an issue in January, let me know and you'll get the key.
Cheers and all the best Stonedog!


Blitz that is very kind of you to offer, but you gentlemen have worked too hard and deserve to have all the Revenue Stream you can gain from that work , so I can handle the cost when you go LIVE . Again, was beyond kind of you to offer though and I will not soon forget the gesture ! :)

If you need some help , and I have the free time from my doing my last Alpha testing pass elsewhere , ( Staring down a looming date of June..ish :P .... 2021 which is a drop it dead or alive date.) I would be happy if you NEED it , to put the client thru its paces on my machine for a stability check or for that matter any checks you need with anything CLIENT related that is within my abilities.

Feel free to contact me on Steam if you think that is something that would help ease the nervous breakdowns you guys are going to be experiencing as you prepare the final "GOLD" build . I have been vetted by USA, Canada , and The United Kingdom Governments and the a fore mentioned appropriate Departments of them in last 12 Months if there were to be any security issues for any reason . Amazing to me that some WWII Unit info may still need a security clearance to have , but it no longer utterly shocks me any more . lol

The offer is genuine and the help is free , if you need it . If not then I will be here COVID not withstanding , on launch day for the 3 Ring Circus that always is for any game.

Do yourself a favor, and have a pre made document to just paste in reply to the 90% of users whom are still using 2016 GPU Drivers, or a .Net somewhere in the 3.5 range and barely able to work with Steam App and most likely not at all with your Engine . Also my ALL TIME FAVORITE ,and always popular ... I CLICKED PLAY and game starts to load but screen flickers and then nothing post . Which is usually followed by your game sucks, did you guys even TEST it reply from same user ... you know the one where you already told them 50 times to DISABLE their FW and or Anti Virus for less than 5 Minutes and try launching it again , if that works then please set you FW/AV to xxxxx and allow the game to be a exception..

Oh man so many I would be past launch date just trying to type them all :P

Good Luck guys, it gets VERY VERY DARK though, right before you begin to see light . Just try and remember your are not the only ones ever felt that panic , and it does eventually go away..... eventually LOL !!!!

Cheers ! :Exploded:

Stonedog, this was really the least I could offer given how your moral support helps carry us on.
I can't stress that enough, thanks a lot!
If you have the bandwidth, I would really appreciate some feedback once we wrap up a late alpha, hopefully this month.
Your advice on the premade troubleshooting doc has just been stored in our Jira :)
Thanks, and please keep your fingers crossed for the alpha this month!

Nice, I really hope this game releases, in January 2021. Good Strategy games are rare and I believe Klotzen! Panzer Battles is a keeper.

Thanks Tiger, we had some delays corona-style, but nothing serious.
We will miss January deadline for sure, but i'm waiting for some tests before I will update the release date. it will still be Q1 as we've covered a lot of ground.

As long as you're healthy to see it through we'll be okay waiting a lil' longer 🙂. Also I wouldn't mind assisting in the testing of the game.

Erome, count on it. Shouldn't be long now.

Thanks Iron! A hard year for us (and EE :)) but we are getting there! Game is shaping up nicely, and our internal testers like it. Can't wait to hear input once we do closed beta.

About how many more months we gotta wait before we get to play an early release?

Hi Erome, short version is not very long. We decided to work on a early and full release in paralel to save time, so early release is lagging behind. The game will come out Q1 22, but we can't say when exactly. Regarding early release, there is some Ai work remaining, but not that much. i would say mid-January. I hope that helps :) and thanks a ton for staying with us!

Diarrhea, Stonedog, we are nearing the time when you will be able to test the game, and I am really hoping you'll like it. It's been quite the road to thread, and your support and continued interest is amazing, thanks a ton for that.
