    I can't help but notice the recent lack of information. I was curious why the devblogs stopped getting updated as of September 13, 2019. I'm really looking forward to trying such a unique and pvp/sandbox oriented game but do have some concerns about the lack of information over the past 5 months.

    Is there a reason for the lack of updates? Perhaps I'm just looking for information in the wrong places?

    You're right. You are looking for information correctly, most likely, but it simply does not exist. If I'm not mistaken, it is not due to lengthy negotiations with sponsors and the translation of all documentation from Russian into English. We all look forward to new information and look forward to its early appearance.

    It does appear that they have been doing a better job of updating information on steam for RoG as the last update was about 2 and a half weeks ago. Still not as much as I'd like but at least it's something to let us know progress is still being made.

    The translator who helps us with the devlogs was uploaded by our GDD and the working documentation, so the news in English lagged behind the news in Russian (

    We will publish translations soon.

    UPD: Report #34 https://reignofguilds.com/en/news/report-34/

    Hi,

    So I recently purchased my copy of the game in support of the development and of course to get the first peek of what looks to be the next level Midevil Sandbox MMO, though the development seems to be steady-going, I shared the concerns that not much is being done with the English translation as it took me hours translating RU to EN just to get my own glims of what's going on thus far?

    Yet while I understand that taking the time to translate all the content will be considered a waste of time from the actual development, I am sure that your English speaking community will very much appreciate all efforts to be comfortable reading the progress in our own language.

    Hope to see more active translating to be done in the near future.

    I for one am completely ecstatic and cannot wait to play with my friends :D

    ++Is there any incentive for getting more like-minded players to purchase their copy? :p

    This^

    I've only recently found the game and am really tempted to give some decent support and pre-order one of the Raubritter packages. However, considering the lack of English communication and no more blogs/updates since December, I'm a bit more hesitant in doing so.

    This is completely my type of game and agree with @Dondraco that I am completely ecstatic about it, however I don't want to buy into something that has communication issues towards probably the language the majority of the eventual playerbase will speak. Is there any update regarding this or if there are plans to improve this?

    I agree, we had certain problems with a delay in the translation of dev. reports, but now everything is up to date in the "News" section on the website.
    https://reignofguilds.com/en/news/

    The Roadmap updates in both languages.
    https://reignofguilds.com/en/status/

    But with the forum - yes, there is much more information in RU, because initially the number of RU communities exceeded 95% of the total.

    Now we are working at Report #36 and will release it in two languages at once.
