Old smoke and mirrors trick. Doesn't matter if they have a list of items to complete, what needs to be added is when do they project each task / all tasks to be done.francis_baud said:I think that it's the exact opposite of radio silence. They're allowing us to directly see (and be part of) the progress through updates, newsletters, live streams, Alpha testing, forum posts, etc.
[...] But going on radio silence for long periods of time, never the right approach, unless you plan on suddenly announcing, great news guys, we'll be launching beta 1 next Tuesday...surprise!
They even created a page showing extremely detailed information about where they are and what is left to do before we get into Beta 1.
Also they've recently added a new card for the Dragon Circle:
"As a Backer, I want to enter a siege scenario, complete objectives, and have the outcome factor into my player's progression."
All the items from this card so far are marked as completed.
Yep, I know full well what happened, doesn't excuse the lack of a schedule today.Gynthazi said:For someone who donated 4.5 years ago if you were paying attention you'd see they had a massive reason for being delayed. Quite frankly i'm glad they did what they did and even through it set them back a good year and a half or so, i'm hoping it will be worth it.As someone who has successfully delivered software for almost 30 years I can assure you this is not true, especially this far into the release cycle the cone of uncertainty should be quite small.meddyck said:Software isn't like a package shipped from a warehouse to your home. A delivery schedule wouldn't be worth the pixels used to publish it.Maybe your donation will permit them to publish a delivery schedule.
I gave them mine over 4.5 years ago and am still waiting.
Unless of course something has happened to push timelines way back which CU hasn't been open about.
Maybe they just want it be a surprise.
We must be hearing something soon.. maybe another couple months? the weekly updates have more and more content in them I feel.
You raise a good point, if their approach actually results in significantly less cheating, perhaps the collateral damage of some small subset of players (innocent or otherwise) being banned justifies the means.rojoArcueid said:Ban all the cheaters, permanently, from all platforms...
If only that was possible
They will always find a way back.
The "relevant" part is right here, where Brad clearly states this is a game focused on getting people adventuring together again.LegotheHutt said:Just because something is minor doesn't mean it should be done away with or is useless. This is not a logical response:
Kyleran said: "if it's a minor hindrance then it's mostly useless and there should be no major issue letting them start together or get together quickly."Kyleran said: "But you could be right, perhaps its not the game for them, and I'm sure the developers don't need their money. "Yep, it has always been advertised as a niche game and not for everyone. Here is an article stating Brad's opinion. The part relevant to this discussion starts in paragraph 2 and goes from there.https://www.pantheonmmo.com/content/blogs/151/180/want-went-wrong-wo-w-wo-w-killers-or-a-general-lack-of-guts
