Wonder if there is something big coming later on.

Wargaming...  I have given you several hundred dollars over the past 2 years... before that all my money went into SC, FA, and SC2!!!  I have multiple copies of each Game!!!  I still host LAN parties to play these games.  Loved TA...  still have copies of that floating around.

my point.. oh yes, please, please, please, fund CT venture into more RTS games for the PC!  A refresh of FA would be wonderful, I promise to purchase 2 copies, I'll even pay in advance!

Hmmm. WoT, WoWP, and WoB all wrapped up into a Supreme Commander style RTS would be quite nice.

Gas Powered Games has made some of my favorite games of all time! :Smile_veryhappy:  I must have put hundreds of hours into the original Supreme Commander and Demigod! New sequels to these would be amazing! I wonder if they are still going to develop Wildman, that game looked awesome........ Hopefully they will be doing more than just porting WOT to consoles :Smile_sceptic: .......

nice idea, might be what they have in mind......maybe it could somehow fit in with CW? imagine in addition fighting in individual tanks, planes, ships you could have some territories that could only be attacked by an army-imagine 15 vs 15 RTS battles Supreme Commander style!

even if they didn't have CW a World War era RTS MM0 would be awesome!

On Feb 11, 2013, Gas Powered Games canceled their Kickstarter project "Wildman", four days before it was due to finish, announcing that they wanted to "focus [their] attention on other ways to keep Gas Powered Games running"

That was an understatment.

Looks like this free to play game is making quite a bit of money.
