Dear friends! We have made it. Battle of Empires 1914-1918 has been Greenlit by the Community!
Battle of Empires on Steam Greenlight

Thanks to your support our game managed to pass the Greenlight in less than a month. During that period, our game was visited by 23,278 people and got 8,803 "yes" votes (57% of total 15,575 votes). It took just one week to reach top100 and two weeks to reach top10. The day before Steam has announced that our project was greenlit, we were on the 5th place out of all games! 

Right now Best Way company is doing all the necessary paperwork to sing an agreement with Steam. And our team is making hard work to finish demo version and prepare the game for its release.


 Hurraa!

So now when you have made this into a game we have to pay for, why don't you remove it from the mods list, so it does not deceive people by thinking they would get it for free when actually they will have to pay for this...

Q: Will this game be available in parts? How many armies will be in ‘Battle of Empires: 1914-1918’? What about multiplayer?
The Great War Team is a bunch of enthusiasts who work hard to deliver a unique atmosphere of First World War to the screens of your computers. But current crowdfunding is not enough for them to make everything simultaneously, that’s why we found a compromise – the ‘Battle of Empires: 1914-1918’ will be composed of 3 separate games that will cost accordingly to the percentage of content presented in it.
•‘Battle of Empires: France’ will come first. It will feature full singleplayer, mission editor and LAN cooperative multiplayer. A bit later after the release we will make a free Beta test of multiplayer and cooperative multiplayer through the Internet.

•The second game that will be released later is ‘Battle of Empires: Russian Empire’. It will feature the biggest singleaplayer campaign as well as multiplayer with 3 factions in it.

•The third game - ‘Battle of Empires: Germany’ will feature one singleplayer campaign, bonus missions for different sides of conflict, 2 new multiplayer factions and new multiplayer mode.

Q: But it was a mod – so it should be free!
A: It was a mod for Men of War game 2 years ago. After getting in top100 mods in development of the year on moddb.com, the team decided to make a full commercial project out of the mod. The ‘Great War Team’ asked ‘Best Way’ for help in completing that large goal and they got all the support they needed. During 2 years of development a massive amount of work has been done so that allowed ‘Battle of Empires: 1914-1918’ project to become commercial.

So, I see that each "part" is going to cost 15 dollars? I have no clue why you made the decision to turn a mod into an actual game, after all this is a mod, not a real game, honestly I will torrent this game because I am not going to pay for a mod, which I have been waiting for quite some time now. There are alot of mods out there which are either better or much better than this mod, and yet they are free.

I highly doubt it will be that successful as a full game, I just don't see many people shelling out cash for a mod-turned-full-game.
It would have been far more popular as a mod.

I think Bulgaria and America should be added. At least Bulgaria.
