I don't wanna be a **** and to haste anyone and all, I know that you CCP guys hear a lot of this crap all the time, but... *cough* how bout those answers *cough*.
Quote:
Thank you all for the questions. We got a lot of great questions and the reception was more robust than we had expected. We were obviously a bit optimistic about the deadline for answering everything so you will see answers trickling throughout next week at least (this weekend might be slow). We will fulfill our promise of answering every single question. None shall be left behind.

>33 full pages of questions.
>~2 pages of answers.

Any chance you'll finish it... soon~?..

Typical CCP forum policy: don't mention deadlines, don't make promises, don't let people point the finger at you.

I think I prefer them making an effort to communicate, even if they miss their own deadlines. It's better than nothing.

That first deadline is something I came up with in a fit of optimism. I think we can all agree that even in the world of arbitrary deadlines this one was pretty crap and I'll take the blame for that. On second thought...I'll just wave my hand and you're all going to forget it.

Ahh...that's better.

But seriously, those questions WILL be answered. I promise that I'm better at making promises than deadlines.

Fair enough.

And might I suggest to completely ignore all the nicey funzies questions and answers to those.

I know its fun&coolio, but by now the mob and assorted bitervets really crave only cold hard facts.

Again thnx for the effort.

You are welcome, we really like doing this and wish we had more hours in the day to do it faster.

Id like to point out though that the guys were doing a good job of tackling a lot of the game play questions, the "tough" ones too, right up until they hit a busy spot with the CSM visit and our furious assault on the CQ backlog. We'll get back in the saddle as soon as we possibly can and crunch out more answers.

Don't stop believing.

Owk .. considering past precedents that sounds a little ominous. We can all understand hectic, planning and all such things, but previously when there was mention of "furious assault / engagement / etc" the usual result was feature cuts.

I'm not saying that this is a bad thing, considering the adopted format of staged releases + required iteration (for customers and CCP). Not at all. But it might be an idea to be ahead of the expectation management curve?

... We don't need to see your answers... Move along, move along...

Thanks for the answer, at least now I can just wait in peace and stop checking answer thread every day, lol.

Funny.

Still waiting for code which was promised to arrive within "a month or 2" in 2008.

I stopped falling for your straight faced lies a good while ago CCP.
