I would like to first thank you for the recent support you've provided Rome 2. I, among others are pleasantly welcoming the new updates to improve overall gameplay. Rome 2 has come so far for all the good reasons.
As a member of the Ancient Empires team - Roman Republican era mod for Attila; I would make the plea to have small, but vital updates introduced to Attila.
I noticed that Rome 2 will be getting the family name propagation fixed. It's a small aspect of gameplay that would add so much to the current game. ToB also introduced some new graphical enhancements and fixes. Rome 2 is also running extremely well. Enhancing this would do wonders for already a tremendous game.
Currently we have 23,000 subscribers to the mod on Steam, and many others externally downloading our packs. This is far short of other mods, but for reasons in our control. We have done limited marketing on the mods behalf. We hope, (not to compete with Rome 2 as both games bring two very different playing styles) to bring more Rome 2 players, or players of some of the older games to Attila, that have yet to make such investment. Plans for the mod are only increasing, and these updates would put an exclamation mark on the future of Ancient Empires, and success of the franchise. Supporting all relevant games in the series can only help.
In conclusion to my case, I am happily pre-purchasing the new DLC campaign Rise of the Republic. You have increased my customer loyalty with Total War, with the recent updates to Rome 2. I truly thank you for that.
Keep up the good work.
