You have every right to be disappointed and frustrated. The whole process has been going on for 20 months now. The game engine is no further along towards release and it seems if oriole has had to essentially re-write all of the code for it to make sense to him we are looking at 2 - 3 more months AT LEAST! We haven't even addressed all the concerns about player ratings, balance of run vs pass (and don't get me started on the 3 month passing game FUBAR), and general game and PBP logic. We haven't started on injuries - penalties.
I'm sure WIS can't be happy to see the start of the college football season and the opportunity for a marketing push slipping away, but this game is FAR from ready.
My take is at least it is free. I don't put much extra time into it as I had at the start - and unfortunately that will end up hurting the beta test as some of the more enthusiastic coaches, who want a good game, won't put the effort in to find the flaws. Especially if we get treated like mushrooms.
