Is there really nobody in the office who can take 5 minutes out of their day to post something that 1) gives us real information, and 2) doesn't mock us for wanting that information in a timely manner? Also, last I checked the timeline for "doing a short write-up on what we can expect in the next two weeks "as soon as possible"" doesn't extend past the 3-day mark...

PGI, you know you're doing a horrible, horrible job at communicating with your playerbase when you can't even take the time to explain why you're not communicating with us.

Porque?!

I just want to know what will be happening this month in the vaguest terms.

But of course, at this point, it will be a little silly since the next patch is in a few days. But I do want to know if this month gets three patches and all that jazz. Whatever. In any case, enjoyed 12 v 12.

I think we've reached that point that it isn't coming... but also that if you look at some of the info provided in various thread.. there's a pretty good idea what is coming this month..

i think at this point, is like when people've missed an appointment. But the person's waited too long to apologize and now its just awkward and ignoring it.

I'm pretty sure we've just resigned to crying over spilled milk.

i think if PGI were a real life person it would not make a good father. because it would always froget to pickup the kid from the soccer game.

Worry not mechwarriors,

You will have your July update in August. Then, your August update in October.

We think this is for the best going forward.

This way, it is impossible to miss dates.

We will just tell you what you already know.

TM soon

If they said this at first no one would get angry at him, everyone has to unwind.

a little notice would be nice at the least.

the most professional thing to do would be to have a co-worker cover the july update, or to have done it a few days in advance.

Basic expectations are not part of PGI's repertoire.

Even a half a useful monthly dev update (because of vacationing) would be better than nothing. At this point, I think everyone has a pretty good idea what's upcoming this month (even Paul's balance changes in the 30th would not have been on it).

Still... very unprofessional.

Not really. We just expect PGI to put the same amount of effort and professionalism into their work as we do ours. But hey i guess it may seem like entitlement to some.

We're not asking for free MC or anything of that sort. We're asking for some that has been they have promised and haven't delivered. This isn't a gamebreaking feature... just info that benefits those that are interested in the game.

Might as well just not ask for your paycheck because the company didn't give one to you on schedule. I mean... why not?

Yes, aren't we all horrid little beasts.[/sarcasm]

1. Previously, we had the content/feature roadmaps for information on how the game would be progressing. It was useful having rough information several months in advance of what would be happening. Yes, dates would slip but we had a rough idea of where the game was heading.

2. CDU was announced to replace the previous content/feature roadmaps.

3. CDU released regularly within first week of the month, well before the first patch of the month, and always on the 3rd or 4th.

4. July has the first patch before the CDU normally is posted. In order to showcase the month ahead, it was expected the CDU would be released the day of the patch.

5. It has currently been ten days since the normal date for the CDU and it has yet to be posted.

6. Furthermore, there has been no announcement made as to why the CDU has been stalled so badly even as we near the second patch of the month.

If being a troll means expectation of a continued feature when there has been nothing indicating it to be delayed this long and desiring an answer as to where it is and what happened to it, then yes. I'm a troll.

A simple "There will be no CDU this month" would have been enough.
But even that is to hard for them.
