@Marko, lucmobz: I hear you about the cards and your gut reaction to them. I guess it can't be avoided that some people have bad experiences with various card games.

I assure you these cards, as used by us, are simply a well-known, well-understood way of presenting one-off theater options. We already have "theater assets", which are once-per-turn theater options, and now we've added "support cards" as one-off options.

As for the details of the graphics design, try to open your heart to it :)

@John: yes, the beta will be announced on the Steam page. It will also be announced on our blog, twitter, FB and newsletter. If you're following any of those channels, you can't miss it.

Cheers!

Sounds like its going to be a lot of fun! I am super excited! The beta testing will be announced on the steam page right?

Same as UoC one. If the base game works out well, DLCs become only a matter of creating new content.

I am very glad to see this develop well Tomislav, keep going, we're almost there!

Interesting thought: the game will release near the release of Panzer Corps 2. It will be interesting to compare the two. To me it seems that UoC2 will be the better! At least the most fresh and interesting one.

@lucmobz I think you have a point there, yes. A different name and visual would be welcome, I don't quite know why it doesn't work for me. No problems with the mechanic itself, of course! The way it is being presented struck me as unexpected. And I don't have any helpful ideas.

@Shadrach: congrats :)

@John: yes, the base game is the western front from 1943 onwards, but then the DLC can, and hopefully will, cover more or less all the action in Europe. It will take some time to develop all of that though.

@Tom Nice! Very cool! I heard from a developer somewhere on another update that a DLC might include Barbarossa with the germans v russians again. If thats true could we expect with the game and DLC to essentially play the entire european theater? From some point in time.

@John: the game includes Allied operations up to and including Germany, yes.

The map has been completed a bit further out than strictly necessary - in the east it goes fairly deep into modern day Poland.

Cheers!

Quick question: How much of the European theater is going to be in the game? The map sections that I see look like it includes all of France and Western Germany but where does it extend to? How far into Germany does it reach?
