Eugen's Next Game & Nineteenth Poll

Well, it has been a really long time since there has been a new poll and a blog.

Today, Eugen announced another RTS that will be released after Wargame: Red Dragon for publisher Focus Home Interactive:

The game was codenamed "Act of R.U.S.E." by Eugen employee and forum admin MadMat on the official Wargame forums, thus implying this game could be the spiritual successor to R.U.S.E., but with a modern setting. However, Eugen Systems commented that the game will “bring the players back in the 90’s Golden Age of strategy games.”, which means it will be more of a traditional RTS like Act of War: Direct Action, StarCraft, and Command & Conquer. They also stated that “Eugen is set on delivering a real-time strategy experience that will touch a larger audience of gamers” as well.


Here are the results fr…

Not Sure- 4

Doubtful for a sequel- 70

Unfortunately, the doubters have won in this, but then again, the sequel, or rather "spiritual sequel" has possibly been already released. Wargame: European Escalation is a sort of spiritual sequel set in four possible World War III scenarios during the cold war. Lets just wait and hope for a RUSE II, however. Lets pick up some editing and fixing of pages, and show Eugen that we still want a sequel!

Happy 2013!

Happy New Years Day everyone! Now the wiki has reached it's fourth year for giving info to the community about the game and some historical info.

Here are some past news:

  • The wiki had hit 500 pages on December 21st with World War II being that page, along with the Wargame Wiki reaching 200 pages!
  • The new "wikiportal" layout has been introduced and has replaced the main page layout.
  • New styles are added to the infoboxes so they will collapse any unused information.

Currently, I am thinking about promoting the R.U.S.E. Wiki on Expect to see in the next several days a new blog post about which picture should represent our wiki.

On other news from Eugen Systems, the Wargame Cup, which is a Wargame: European Escalation tournament to probably promote Wargame: AirLand Battle, has reached Round 4, with less than 250 players left! The round will last from 26th December till 6th January 2013.

Here is the Wargame forum link:

New Main Page Layout

Alright guys, time to introduce you the new main page layout for the R.U.S.E. wiki! This layout adds "portals" on the main page, making it look to me much neater and more up-to-date to most wikis. The layout will be implemented sometime during Christmas.

Here is the preview of the left column section of the main page:

Sixteenth Poll

Hey there, this is Privatejfx141, your bureaucratic admin. Apologies for not having any recent news in a month since we, the admins, are busy with life and stuff like that. So, here are some "bad news" I need to inform you. As some of you guys probably know, Ubisoft has recently closed the R.U.S.E. official site, redirecting it to just the game information page. If you check on Eugen's Official website, it stated that Eugen is currently developing two strategy games for next year, one of which we know is Wargame: AirLand Battle. With Ubisoft shutting down the R.U.S.E. official site, the only conclusion I can draw to is: it is unlikely for there to be a R.U.S.E. 2 coming out next year, but that doesn't mean there isn't going to be R.U.S.E. sequel. There had been some rumors in the forums that there is a sequel to R.U.S.E. in its very early stages. Who knows? Maybe the sequel will be published under a different company instead of Ubisoft.

On some other upcoming events, about a week from …

Images on this Wiki

Hey there, this is Privatejfx141, your bureaucratic admin. I noticed there are some problems concerning the images that are uploaded to this wiki. Here are some that I laid out:

  • Real life images: These are images taken place in either World War 2 or a museum, and I'm afraid that in the near future, we are going to have a bit too much of them in some units articles. Just remember, this is a gaming wiki about R.U.S.E. not a wiki about World War 2 in general, we can't have too much real life images since we have not that much in-game images from R.U.S.E. I would like to limit each unit article to having 3 real life images. I have also categorized some images in the Category:Real World images. Just don't turn the units articles into galleries. D:
  • Duplicate unit icons: Yes... I have seen them alot, one on a unit article and another on someone's user page. Duplicate unit icons will be deleted, so if you want to post an image on an article or your user page, please try to find the image that al…

United States (Continuation of the first RUSE campaign)- 7

United States- 3

Germany and the USSR tie for the win at 57!

France- 6

United Kingdom-8

Italy- 8

Japan- 12

Out of a total of 158 votes, both the Germany and the USSR both tie for the win! Hopefully they make a loooong campaign out of one of thoses, afterall, not even all the non-winning factions added up could add to Germany's or the USSR's. Have fun reading this and please vote again!

Major improvements for the wiki

Hey guys this is Privatejfx141, your bureaucratic admin. I would like address everyone that since the R.U.S.E. Wiki has been on for about three years, it still seems to be well... incomplete. Here's is my opinion about what we should do to improve it:

  • Finish the missions articles
  • Fix up the achievements articles and their infoboxes (they haven't been touched in a long time)
  • Finish the map articles and fix up their infoboxes (again, haven't been touched in a long time)
  • Add quotes from in-game to the units article
  • Add a picture gallery to each unit article
  • Improve the navbox templates (I seriously suck at templates)
  • Fix up the categories (delete the categories Heavy Tank, Medium Tank, and Light Tanks, as we already have Heavy Tanks, Medium Tanks, and Light Tanks)
  • Fix up the characters articles
  • Discuss in the wiki forums about what time do we go online and play R.U.S.E. (the forum also hasn't been touched since the wiki was created)
  • Created separate templates for the main page
  • Add a cut content sectio…

Need help on another Eugen's RTS game wiki

Hey, this is Privatejfx141, your bureaucratic admin. I need some help on the Wargame: European Escalation wiki, which the game is abit like RUSE and is about a 3rd World War between the NATO and Warsaw Pact and it is set in Europe during the Cold War in the years 1975-1985. The game was developed by of course, Eugen Systems and published by Focus Home Interactive.

The wiki haven't had alot of contributions since late Feburary of this year, and the wiki had been vandalized twice in just a week. So I'm just asking if anyone could help out, that would be great.

Today, I have added the categories "Armies" and "Italy" to awards, so if you make an edit on those, you can earn points at different intervals (1 edit, 5 edits, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500 edits, so on...), so we can both earn more points, and more importantly, get more edits on those pages so they can be updated more since they have been largely left untouched.

All RUSE users must see this!

Yes, this page may seem worthless but I must address quite a few things in a manner everyone will see. The first is with the addition of the blue bar at the top of the pages. Yes, this is very new. It was added to make navigation easier, and no, if you don't like it, I'm not taking it down. Also, added quite awhile ago, is the comments box at the bottom of EVERY page, so talk, talk TALK! Another feature that know uses is the new chat, so talk if you want. Another thing i must address, and I'm begging you to do this, make a profile if you don't have one, it helps a lot better with managing things, believe me. Lastly, all vandals will be banned until December 31st, 9999. no exceptions, this is a zero tolerance wiki. If you want back on, however, TOO BAD! So please, comment below, your feedback is vital!

Also, added October 8th, is the poll. This is for fun and will change every Friday unless I forget. This weeks is "what era would you like to see a possible sequel in?"

PS3 Move!

As you know, R.U.S.E. will be among the first games to support the new Move controller on the PS3. A few gaming sites have been experimenting the demo with motion controls, here are some of their impressions:

[1] “Real-time strategy games have always suffered on consoles, and even though Move support was added to this game late in the development process, it's a great way to play. After an hour of learning the controls and mechanics, I leaned back in my recliner, re-calibrated with the new position, and played for a very long evening, scowling as I thought my way through tactical decisions. Every now and then there was a slight twitch as units didn't go exactly where I would like them to go, but overall it felt wonderful; the controller disappears in your hand instead of being an impediment to play.”

"The R.U.S.E. demo is now available on PC, which you can download on Steam. The demo features a full mission in which you play a role in the Allied offensive in Italy, aimed at cutting off a German offensive from withdrawing by attacking them from behind. However, high command suddenly realizes that the Germans, aided by the remaining loyal Italian units, are much stronger than they had previously been led to believe. You will lead the US army fighting against Germany and Italy, and must combine deceptive strategies and eventually resort to nuclear strikes to achieve victory!

Console players: it’s just a matter of days before the same demo releases on XBOX LIVE and PlayStation Network!
