Why do you even care? Just check the June CDU to see how much of the things the said they would, they didn't implment(Seismic, UAV, JJ, SRM, Flamer, CC post about the aforementioned)

Guess it's just not going to happen this month. Could they have not at least make an announcement that they're changing how they communicate to us again? The CDU didn't last long, RIP CDU.

Who needs communication? Apparently not PGI. Can someone explain why they don't simply throw us a bone as to why we don't have one? I'd say this is a new low, but really it's actually par for the course. I'm thinking this is going to be so lame they are afraid of people not buying Project Phoenix for the early bird bonus. IF they wait long enough people will get desperate and buy it on hope.

According to Russ's twitter feed, Bryan is on vacation in Las Vegas, and thats why there isn't a post. Seriously.

Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence


This is a young organization that is not adequately equipped to deal with its large fan-base, and clearly does not have any procedures in place. As such, when key personnel are unavailable, they have no way to fulfill any commitments, even simple ones.

Since at this point it's pretty obvious we're not getting a CDU for July... can we please get a post explaining why one wasn't done this month?

Can't you just flipping get over it? It's not there. You had patches on time, fixes, a bunch of other updates.

Get over it. Grow up. Go play something else. Come back some other time. It's NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. It's a videogame, an unfinished one at that. You should just sit back, chill out and worry about things that matter in this world. Not whether or not someone posts an update on the contents of a videogame.

Lol, would sir like a broom to help clean up. You seem to have left a lot of irony laying around that last post, especially around the "flipping get over it" and "chill out" area's.

Forgive me for saying but aren't the forum's the place to voice your concerns to the company, I myself have become a little underwhelmed by the lowering of communication from PGI to this forum community over the last couple of months. It is not unreasonable to ask why a forum feature has been discontinued/delayed after it being the norm. Thing is, I wasn't that bothered by it that I was going to post, that is until I read your little contribution and it tickled my funny bone.

Peace, brother :ph34r:

I would forgive this oversight if they released it on July 30th, post-patch, for the lulz.

If Garth or any other PGI people read this thread: There will be whining regardless, but in the future you guys should really send out a tweet or post an announcement or something that's like, "Yo. No creative director update this month. Sorry."

It's the difference between a friend calling you to say, "Hey. My car broke, and I can't pick you up at the airport," and just being stranded for hours wondering where the **** your ride is.

Because this close to launch is a perfect time for people to take long vacations.

Tomorrow??!?!?!!?!?!

That is so comically bad.

As a prize, you should have boxes ready... for his new home, and line of clothes.

It also happens to be the same day the "Early Bird special" for the Project Phoenix Package ends (just a month of premium time).

I'm expecting an outlook for August. And new shoes.

I'll be too busy laughing if it's for July only.

I caved and decided to roll the dice. The game is what it is, and it's got a shot at greatness. I'll care a lot less about $80 wasted than four months of sad, Battlemaster-less gameplay. Here's to hoping.
