    Yep it happened again. It's 80% off. For four days! (until 12 january)

    This is insane. The game is on sale more than at it's normal price. Uber, you need more players, I get that. But Jezus your game has been on 80% off three times in less than two months. And that only four months after release. What will people think of you?

    Well, grab some copies of PA then... you won't find them cheaper...

    Edit: The sale has ended.

    You can never get and have enough PA. I like to think that Uber knows this and puts it on sale for that very reason :cool:

    (It's a conspiracy I tell you!)

    I read the steam forums and thought "uh so many trolls again, this looks like... oh yeah"
    The "troll-indicator" for the current price of PA.

    Steam reviews need to update badly... maybe there is a way to buy a most helpful refresh ?

    Most definitely not, if there was, then there would be no end to devs (and even people) exploiting that

    There needs to be a way to mark old reviews as outdated. The devs should have an option to mark reviews from older than X date (minimum a couple months) as outdated and no longer count them to user score. It would help a bit with the percentage, but most importantly get rid of those old negative reviews from september and october on the store page.

    The steam forums are of course filled with obvious troll and hate.

    But I just wanted to say that this is just ridiculous. No game that was released less than half a year ago does this. 80% off is rare in general for games on steam. Multiple times 80% for a game that was released 4 months ago is just not normal. It gives people bad thoughts about Uber, their finances, their game. Wrong thoughts, because the truth is that Uber just wants more players. That's just how I think of this. And I am disappointed that Uber keeps making mistakes.

    That may be the reason why they do this kind of sale

    Good choice. They do need a bigger fanbase before selling addons for a yet to be completed game.

    I'm expecting an announcement for an DLC soon it all make sense. After HR they know it is better for now to invest time in something that is already selling (PA). PA still has a lot more potential so it would be logical.

    Well they will certainly achieve their goal of more players with this.

    **** the steam forums seriously, every sale all the SUPCOM fanboys appear and just spread misinformation, fake posts and bad vibs, its always the same talking points like they have a bingo sheet. always the same people aswell.

    Seriously some of them need to be banned.

    Oh I think it's mostly not even SupCom players, some of the worst people basically have no interest in RTS at all. xD

    I've created create a topic to try and correct a lot of the misinformation that gets posted during sales.
