    Dear friends, this long-expected day has come!
    Second rating season has started!
    New season holds many interesting updates:
    1. New ELO rating system, which gives even more possibilities for our players to show themselves. Only quailty games, no half measures. Leaving the game before it's finished nets you a penalty to your rating.
    2. New option - 5000 resources with 0pt. Games would be faster, grittier and juicer, and the fights would be fiercer.
    3. Tournament heights - this update allows players, who've achieved top30 positions in ladder, to train on tournament settings. If top30 player meets an opponent of the same level, their games would use mirror nations. This update has been added, to help top30 players with their trainings before the season finale, which would be hosted in September.
    4. The season would end with "Season Clash 2", where the best ladder players would fight for glory and prizes.
    5. Top 100 ladder players, along with winners of the tournament would receive special badges in internet shell, which would remain for the next seasons.
    New feature:
    New type of quick play games has been added: players can choose now, whether they'd like to play ranked games, or unranked with the same options, without getting rating points. Unranked quick play games allow players to use AI adviser (if you've got it available). Now you can try new tactics without risking your points.
    Of course, you're still able to create custom game rooms with your own settings.
    Starting of the new season, would mean that last one would have a glorious ending!
    Top 100 ladder players of the First season are getting special badges, corresponding to their ladder achievements. We congratulate the owners of these badges, who've got unfading glory and respect in our community.
    We'd wish to highlight the three ladder leaders, since achieveng a victory on such a long distance is an admirable feat:
    1 place - [GFF]Petru_BwM
    2 place - HYPPS
    3 place - nazariy81
    The winners of the First official tournament would also receive special badges:
    1 place - [-RA-]SAnek_PCT
    2 place - [GFF]Petru_BwM
    3 place - [1S]SecretPlayer
    Good luck in a new season and may the strongest win!
    P.S This patch has also fixed several small bugs.
    We wish us all nice warm weekends!

    Any news on the 18th century ships? I have been waiting for them since the game has been released.

    I hate to be bother with this question, but I have to ask again. When would we be able to buy Cossacks 3 in stores?

    So, just to clarify what I've read in this thread, this game:

    1. Does not feature any morale mechanism: (a) formations remain intact until annihilated and (b) units follow orders regardless of the situation;

    2. Does not feature gun crews, making (as they were in the original Cossacks) cannon comically impervious to attack as long as they remain in sufficient proximity to a friendly unit;

    3. Does not feature gun limbers or horse artillery (whose absence from the campaign scenarios in Cossacks II was one of that game's most significant weaknesses, a weakness made inexplicable by their inclusion in the [unplayably buggy] town-building skirmish mode);

    4. Utilizes a physics system in which cavalry cannot trample or plunge through enemy infantry (another absurdity of both the original Cossacks and Cossacks II was the sight of a mass of heavy cavalry drawing up at a sudden standstill and having to hack down an entire picket line, where any actual cavalry charge would have ridden them down without breaking stride); and

    5. Does not permit seventeenth-century units to utilize both ranged and melee attacks;

    Correct?

    Also, I haven't seen this mentioned, but does the game:

    6. Still not permit musketeers or cannons to fire through or be mounted on stone walls?

    7. Utilize the cannon-ball physics from Cossacks II (in which shot would roll or bounce under certain conditions)?

    8. Still not contain any form of earthworks (the historical research in the original was top notch in many respects, but it displayed a very poor grasp of the era's fortification technology)?

    9. Utilize the road-movement and fatigue system from Cossacks II?


    I agree with the poster from 2016 who lamented the absence of some of those elements. Particularly without morale, the game is just StarCraft with modern graphics and interesting units: the game mechanics have zero relation to the historical context from which the units are drawn.

    Is there any chance that game would be released in stores worldwide?

    If I remember well, Koch Media had retail keys when the game released in 2016, there was also a collector but Polish only I think.
    Most were digital key sold on steam and GoG, and now that GSC is focused on STALKER 2 I woudn't expect them to make much effort now to make more retail of Cossacks 3.

    How disappointing! I have all the Cossacks titles from the European Wars until the Cossacks:2 and they are all in those beautiful boxes. Can't believe that
    this title which we waited for for years will only be available through STEAM... I hate STEAM and inability to have actual physical copy of the game proudly displayed
    on my PC games shelf. What a turn off.

    And I had no idea they are working on STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl 2!?...
