What vision? People are not being impatient. Far from it. The game is 8+ seasons old, and the marketing has been dreadful. There simply are not enough new users coming to the game to make it work. In its current form, there is no real potential for the game. None. Zip. Nada. Something needs to be done to shake it up. Norbert himself even admits "It [consolidation] may be something we have to do later in the year." D'oh! Ya' think? My question is - why wait?
And BTW - there are numerous owners in all three of my current leagues as frustrated with the game as me. And NONE of the issues now cropping up were that hard to predict. With established teams having large stadiums, set squads, and new teams starting EXACTLY as they did in season 1, what did anyone with a clue think might happen? Competitive balance? I hope not, because if that's true, there is a much deeper problem here than an ill conceived "fix" and poor marketing.
I'd love for WIS to get this fixed and moving. The other games here are very, very good. No reason this can't be as good. But they really need to step back, recognize the problems, and implement MAJOR revisions such as far improved PBP, stat records, etc. But the developers also must admit the failure of the current marketing efforts, bite the bullet and consolidate worlds, and then maybe the game will develop some legs.
So I am not impatient. Maybe a bit demanding - so? Deal with it, but if you (WIS) aren't willing to put a product in the market that is at or near the same quality as other products from the same company - get out. I plan to finish my three leagues. And - frankly - if a plan with DATE commitments to get this thing right isn't announced. I will not return. I enjoy futbol too much to stick around and waste my time here when the developers don't seem interested in real improvements. There are far superior products on the market. Would I like for this to be a better experience? Yes. I hope they get it going. 8 seasons of "beta" is enough. Time to get the game moving toward the "vision" (ill-defined as it is) some users seem the believe is out there.
Sorry of I seem a bit put out. Frankly - I am. The incessant apologists for poor development, lousy marketing accusing users with a true desire for improvement as being "impatient" is tiresome and boring. Get over it. If the game isn't truly moving forward in the next few weeks, it won't be an issue with many of us, because we will simply be gone.
