Guess it beats saying "CW and UI2.0 are on the way!" for the 30th time?


Oh, little you know! CW and UI2.0 tomorrow! *makes plane sounds and flys out of the room*

It's simply to replace the "October Creative Director Update".

No more, no less.


As, the old "update the outdated content with slightly less outdated updated content" gambit. Brilliant.

Then they should have posted it last week, when the referenced post was made.(And not represent it as something it's not.)


As a creative update that was posted in the last month of the year? When dissatisfaction and unhappiness become the foundation of your reasoning process instead of the result, it's time to take a step back and fix yourself. /unfollow

Although it was a bit of a let down to see that this was just a re-post of an earlier one, I understand the point of it, consolidating the info into a single area. No big deal. Moving on......

It's not a Creative Director update. This was done by Paul. Those are done by Bryan.

Just because you project "dissatisfaction and unhappiness as the foundation of reasoning processes" on others, doesn't make it true. White-knighting doesn't accomplish anything, with this company, other than make them think they're doing great and that people who criticize their stupid choices are "on an island". Like their misguided egos needed more stroking than NGNG provides...

This "announcement" is disingenuous, and to claim otherwise is very naive.

I'm a sad panda that this was kind of redundant. I got excited for a moment when I saw it on the splash page. *sighs*

Oh well. Here's hoping for 2015!

"The point" was to put it into the announcements forum for people who wanted to look it up later - some people will complain about anything.

Like people complaining that it was December and there was still a link to the October CDU on the front page... So they take it down and put up a link to the December Design Update, and they still complain that it's not to their liking.

You could put a livecam on the devs desktops and people will complain about the lag.

Sorry, "2015" can't be implemented until UI 2.0, as it requires the new features it provides... ;)

Wow... just... wow... so much bitching over something so small. For my part, I think Paul is trying to prove a point to the rest that, if they don't put out something substantive, this is what they're going to get. Pretty sad display of nasty, if you ask me. I'm not white knighting anything, but I just... just... wow.

No, the point was filler, and to make it look like they're still doing something. Considering we had no Nov CD update, and haven't had an ATD in a month, at least.

Now, come Dec 17th, they'll make some drastic changes which will break some significant aspects of the game... and then go on "Holiday vacation" for a month.

Think I'm being dramatic? It's what they did last year. (ECM injection, MAJOR JJ nerf.)

So...I'm guessing...they're going to release U.I 2.0 as is and let us "iron out the kinks" for 3 months before fixing anything?

Thats fine with the front page and all, but what is the point of this discussion thread then? Given that there is already an existing thread on this topic here.

The creation of this thread pretty much serves no purpose that I can see. They gain nothing out of it, and all it does is aggravate and let down those people who do stay on top of the forum announcements.

I can't lie, pretty disapointing to see this show up on twitter, making me think there was something new.

The linked post was from a week ago. And was some good information, from Paul.

This announcement, though, and the retweet from Russ, is what I have issue with.

I'll be honest, the image for this was actually more interesting than the content it referred too.

Though to be fair, it is a pretty nifty image.

Instead of "Update" it should say "Rehash"

A positive note: people are still excited when they see stuff on the forums from the Developers. All hope is not lost.

This was pretty ham handed... Hopefully there is something else to put some context to this.
