Stop playing in french for a while / Arrêter de jouer en Français !

The nasty bug where all the pop ups are spamming the screen seems to happen to french speakers only.

traduction : joueurs français, le bug des pop ups qui spamment l’écran vient de la langue pour je ne sais quelle raison. Donc jouez en anglais en attendant, desolé mais allez bruler paradox 🙂

No dev diary today, but I would like to help some fellows that are struggling to kickstart their game.

Wars and Battles is an ambitious project that will bring very complex wargames on PC, smartphones, tablets.

Details are on their kickstarter page :

Hope I wasn’t too long, next ESSOS dev diary should come before the end of August, and also Europa Universalis IV from paradox is coming in 24 H, that may reduce the productivity of some team members 🙂
