    @mkrater is handling builds now :) I'm still around though, just buried with other stuff currently.

    @sorian, so is this the fixed neural net data that got messed up by the targeting bug? or is there more evil included?

    Mkrater for president then? I'm sorry Jables but your campaign just isn't getting the coverage it needs anymore.

    Looks like PTE now simply means PublicTestEnvironment once again instead of Public´sTestingExtremexperimentalstuff...

    (for the last builds, the change from @jables -> @mkrater isn´t the one that matters concerning this issue)

    BTW: The fixes do sound quite well!

    I'm very concerned that the PA multiplayer community is dying. There seems to be a lot fewer games in the lobby these days. I seriously hope this isn't the case since PA is my fav RTS ever. Uber definitely aren't the best at promoting their game and @jables has been pretty quiet lately. It seems like Uber are slowly ramping down on development too. I'm thinking once saved games has been fully implemented the development process will stop.

    I think that they will continue to flesh out game-play, and certainly balance, even if they are cutting back on development.

    I wish Uber would promote their game more! Why does the promotion need to stop now that the game has been released? The premature release of the game was a terrible idea and the backlash unncessarily hurt the game but we have seen some huge improvements since then but because of the bad press it will never be the popular game it should have been.

    The only reason why is because there hasn't really been any important news for multiplayer, save game is great and all but it only affects single players. Any time there is an update of some kind to MP, whether it be balance or something else, there's a pretty large spike in the player count for a while.

    Hmm that kinda sounds like a doomsday situation to be honest. PA isn't doing bad at all ( I think). RTS just ain't that popular.

    Just look at how Grey Goo is doing. http://steamcharts.com/app/290790 Now that looks painful. Just think about it. It has a proper singleplayer campaign with tutorials ( not trying to be rude here Uber).

    They're still polishing the game up and I wouldn't be surprised if they'll keep trying to add new stuff ( expansions and all). I only hope for something like a rerelease sometime in the future ( with some cool new stuff). Time will tell.

    People have been concerned about PA dying even more than a year ago I think. ;)
    I agree with alpha: I hope Uber will think about how promoting the game more once some extra updates have hit it. I think it would be a waste not to try some PR stunts to get media attention again once the game is more polished.

    How does Steamcharts get these numbers?

    If those numbers are correct and some people will be using the Uber launcher too then maybe things aren't as dire as I thought.
