2018 has been a very tough year for us. We had to create a new Radious Overhaul for Thrones of Britannia; maintain our mods to be compatible with numerous updates and DLC to Total War Warhammer II; and on top of that unexpectedly rework our Rome II Overhaul to make it compatible with three years’ worth of CA’s content. This has all been very draining on us, both physically and mentally. Physically, because we often had to come back home after a whole day at work/university and then work on our mods, often till late hours of the night and with little time for anything else. Mentally, because we have, as always, been subjected to certain groups of people that seem to have no other interests than hating on our work; but also because we have been witnessing a steady decline in Patron numbers.
It has been very disheartening to put so much of ourselves into our work and often receive unexplainable hate and people cancelling their patron status on the last day of the month in return. 2019 is shaping up to be even more challenging, with more content for all the above-mentioned games and an entirely new tile, Three Kingdoms, on the horizon. This will require ever increasing amounts of our time and effort to keep up and remain on top of everything. With that in mind, we have a plea. We have been making it after every update and release, and we hate the fact that we have to do it at all.
Please, consider supporting us on Patreon. We are not doing this out of greed or out of spite. We are not cynics trying to get as much money out of you as possible. We are simply asking, as human beings to other human beings, because we are on the edge. It is getting harder and harder to come back home after 8-10 hours at work every day to an ever-increasing mod workload, with our only return being more silence on behalf of the players. Just three days ago we lost around a quarter of our Patrons. We do not know why people are so unwilling to support us, but we feel like it has been a last straw. If the Patron numbers drop even further, we are not sure that we will be able to find the motivation to continue anymore. So far, the only response we have been receiving to our pleas was either apathy or hate, with the exception of a handful of people who have been there for us. As such, it is a real possibility, that after 7 years of providing you with highest quality mods, Team Radious will close down. If people do not show us that they care about us or our work, after this development cycle, there will be no more updates to our mods, and we will cease to support new TW titles.
We love gaming, and we love the fact that thousands of people are enjoying our mods. It makes us feel really good to know that we are improving their experiences.

However, we are only human and we also have our limits and we feel like we are on the edge right now. We know that people are in different financial situations, and we will never judge if somebody decides against it, but please consider supporting us and our work on Patreon.
