Brad,

I have bought most of the games you have made since 2005.  Your rep for improving games over time (GC2....) is pretty well established for this paying customer.  I get that you guys were smacked around because WOM did not meet hopes/expectations and had too many problems.  FE is on the right track to realizing most of what I personally had imagined for WOM.   Other than the scale of battles, I can see this turning into pretty much what someone who really likes GC2 and Total War genre would hope for in a turn-based fantasy epic...

So thanks!

I notice no one has commented on that article. I was going to, but I am on the edge of fanboy status as is. I don't want to be the first one.

Personally I found the original reasonably playable, and look forward to the finished FE and hopefully a number of campaigns! How can anyone be unhappy with a commercially oriented firm who are still willing to accept they are less than perfect and provide a free game which even in its present state has provided me with hours of pleasure, even if at the moment it seems impossible to complete a large campaign without running into terminal mem problems--but after all this is still a beta test.

When I log in to check my upgrade price, only the full price is listed. I was a preorderer of WOM. I think I even played an alpha they released to us, or at least the very earliest betas.

I posted a few lines.

Did you make a new account since then? Your user profile seems to say you are new to the game.

How do you go about finding the date you purchased the game out of curiousity? Stardock lists the codes but has no information about when you registered it that I can locate.

I essentially bought War of Magic as soon as it came out and at full price (don't remember what that was). I enjoyed the game mostly however never truly got into it. Thanks for offering your next game complimentary. Checked my Stardock account and it appears as if I will have access to it when it arrives at no charge! Yay!

Frankly when E: WoM first came out it was playable. It was some of the patches that seemed to ruin the balance. the latest 1.4 version has restored some of the balance but not all. So far the 0.86 version of E: FE has been enjoyable. If the current improvements are any indication I will probably be gifting FE to some of my friends and family.
