Probably it means "Soon".

Soon maybe the day of patch :ph34r:

Welcome to how some of us have felt since before this left Closed Beta back around October.


I got into CB pretty late, only been since February I started feeling like this. I've been willing to overlook things until recently even, but the number of major game features that should have been released but are not only missing but missing with no word on their status is staggering. There are more features missing than not right now, so I have to assume that they're going to be years in coming, as it would be unrealistic to expect the game to double in size in a few months.

Very funny,

but dont you - as a volunteer moderator - have a more direct wire to PGI than we common players?
(honestly, no pun intended)

When/If the July CDU is released, most of it will detail what was in the patch that was already released while the rest will be things they are working on for August.

Guys: It's "Under Review"! I was right: they're totally thinking about getting this done soon! Maybe in a day or two, we can expect another post telling us why it's so difficult to type up a solitary page of text explaining what's going to happen this month!

By this time it's clear it's not the difficulty in the writing, it's the difficulty in explaining how the big things promised for July have slipped to August ( for now). August is gonna be HUGE!!!! :rolleyes:

come august; "Big things in september!"

if they had any PR sense, they would add 2 months to anydate they say. since they can't meet the deadline till 2 months after anyways.

they will only be praised for meeting deadlines, and delivering early that way

If the MW:LL team were still pumping out updates MWO would be in even more serious trouble.

Schedule for the 12v12 tests make it clear this won't be live this month at the soonest.

EDIT Reason I mention it here is because any CDU we'd have received would've mentioned only the test dates themselves, not the release. Either way, chalk up yet another thing Ekman no longer needs to go to all the effort of typing up in this month's CDU. ;)

Right now they are concerned with making launch of September 17th. This year, September 17 is on a Tuesday, next year it is on a Thursday. Either way it will happen by Friday.

SOON tm

At this point the least they could do is give a statement as to why we didn't get one.

The statement would only be ready by august so they're not bothering.

Well, if you consider that our messages about the Monthly Dev reports are like Streaks and LRMs, and Bryan is an ECM carrier...

It is reminiscent of the day Paul said he was going to post the status of ECM balance... and forgot.

I'm getting the strangest feeling that they'll put out the CDU the 15th, announcing that instead of making the Victor available for C-Bills they will instead put in the Devastator and leave the Victor only available for MC until release. Well, maybe not that bad, but...yeah.

So PGI is counting on us getting bored and forgetting the lack of July CDU. Seems to be working. ;)

Right now, Paul is buying time for Bryan through the new heat mechanic rage.

I would probably consider that the closest thing to a Monthly Dev post... because I don't think this will get better.

that would be nice. but i am used to only being dissapointed by PGI. so no pleasant suprises just unpleasant ones.

its most likely either brayn e is on vacation. or they were waiting for 12vs12 metrics before doing the Monthly update.

Huh...I had meant that post as a worst case scenario. A 'mech with dual gauss rifles and six energy slots...well, that wouldn't help the meta any. And of course, I was referencing the quick swap of the Quickdraw and Orion because the Quickdraw had a different meta. Plus having the CDU on the fifteenth would basically mean we're getting patch notes early, and of course, the Victor would just remain as another source of income (not that I care about that, more income is good). I guess I didn't think that could be interpreted as a good thing.
