I have been shocked at Shrapnel's behaviour. However, news of this saga is gradually spreading across the gaming world, as we speak.....

It's a great pity and such an avoidable tragedy - companies that treat customers badly always suffer as a result.

Hehe, try this one out if you want a better working simple world conquest game:
http://triplea.sourceforge.net/mywiki
It's an open source clone of Axis & Allies, and the AI works better than the one in World Supremacy, and it's got a lot of maps. Try the latest unstable version (release candidate), because it's better than the last unstable, and the AI works better (and it's faster). But don't use the Dynamix AI (in Version 1.3.1.1) for England, USA or Japan in WW2-scenarios, because it can't move sea zones yet (but it's better in land battles than the two other AIs). Just use Moore N. Able or E.Z. Fodder for them. Try it out, it's free!

Hey, who of you has already filed a FTC complaint? I get no answer on my last bug report mail, and it seems Shrapnel just want to sit out our complaints, judging by their complete silence.

One thing I'm thinking: Maybe this is the first time they get really serious complaints about a game they released, and don't know how to handle it. But a company should be able to deal satisfactory with their customers, otherwise they'll go out of business. Man, they can't ignore us forever!
The current situation is a deadlock, I think, no real action from Shrapnel and Malf, and little action from the customers (aside of the FTC complaints made by me and ScottWAR).

Good that our posting here serves a purpose. If you want to play hotseat or TCP/IP you should consider buying it though (especially hotseat), because the overall mechanics are good. What completely ruins the game (for single player) is the bad AI. But don't expect much support after buying it. I think it's simply not worth it's price. There are better free games than this (for example TripleA and People's General, or Battle for Wesnoth if you like Fantasy games).

I'm certainly not hard pressed for games. I have lots. However, I like this demo but I would only play it against the AI. Since the support is the way it is here, not now.

I have over 40 Matrix games and plenty of Steam, Gamersgate, Paradox, Battlefront (although they have DRM), boxed games,and others. Tons. My favorite ones however are like World Supremacy.

Thanks for your honest posts! The one main thing besides easy download and install without DRM, is the support that Matrix gives. Can't beat that. I wish others were as good.

Yeah, Matrix Games is pretty good. I own Armada 2526 (Matrix Games Version), which is a pretty awesome 4X game. Try Triple A (see post above), if you want a game similar to World Supremacy (it's a free open-source game, gets regular updates, and has a good community). And you can play it against the AI (which works better than the one in WS, but also isn't perfect, but they are working on a new AI, which isn't fully finished in the newest release).
By the way, DRM is also an important thing for me. I normally don't buy games that require an Internet connection to activate, because I have no permanent internet connection at home. I always go for Indie games without DRM or protected by serial numbers that can be entered offline.

ANYONE still here? Seems this game is dead (again). Last patch didn't really reanimate it.

Im still reading the thread. I think its really funny.
It is so much like threads in other forums here, and even on other games sites. Most of it just minor opinions of course. Obviously no one is ignoring you.
