I say this with no malice or judgement or, really, any feeling... but...
If you're tired of delays and "lies" then leave. Pretty simple, really.
I've made the decision to persist through the delays because I believe in the vision being put forth and I want to see the end result. I'm just enough entertained by the current version to keep playing until the update. And if I change my mind at any time or lose faith in what's to come or when it is to come, then I'll simply stop paying and stop playing.
The math is very simple here. If the current game OR the promise of the game to come is worth more to you than $10.95 per 35 days, then stay; if not, then leave.
If you're unhappy, please voice your opinions, but try to do it in an arena where it won't clutter otherwise productive, meaningful discourse. Such as this "Update" thread. Or, at least, what this thread *could've* been before bad feelings permeated.
I never said Lies you did. I have paid very little to play this game so money has nothing to do with it. It comes down to deliver what you promise! As far as deliver it in a arena that won't clutter your otherwise productive ,meaningful discourse I'll ask some questions to help some with a timeline.
1) What is the maybe time for the beta to start?
2) Was it me or did Norbert say he would have the update done in a max of 4 GD seasons? If yes how long in real time is a GD season? 35 Days?
Let's start here because I'm sure there are players this could help understand how long it's going to be before some of the process will start.
To keep this from getting to confusing please I'd like only GT to answer. GT I'm not trying to be a smart ***. You seem to be one of the biggest believers in the update and I'd like your take on the timeline. I hope your right and the update is great. So please I'm only interested in GT's answers.
EDIT: Here is latest Correct?(Below) With this information what is the beta start date? If he's expecting 3-4 GD seasons before the release and 2 months for beta to complete?
Just to keep expectations reasonable, we have some time before beta will launch and beta will probably take almost 2 months to make sure things are running well, so I don't think the update will be pushed live for at least 3 GD seasons. So I would count on playing the next 3 seasons under the current engine. Plus when we push out the update, you'll have to wait for the season to roll over to move to the new engine, so possibly up to the next 4 seasons.
