It serves the purpose of trying to let the community know what's happening. It serves the purpose of letting us know if we should recommend this game to our friends who are on the fence. It serves the purpose of enhancing word of mouth communication, which, as i said, is the most effective form of advertising on the planet. I wont be recommending people buy the game on day 1 if shit doesnt get fixed/balanced. If 3 days before launch, they decide to push it back another few months, i'll be recommending people save their money until that launch day. There's reasons we communicate, it's not silly. I enjoy the development process, i enjoy being a part of it, and i'm asking that there be communication between the devs and the players. MANY of us feel this game isnt close to being release ready within 2 weeks, hence, why i'm asking.
Btw @Pakislav , i've enjoyed all of your comments in this forum. You've given precise constructive criticism, thoughtful input on changes, and genuinely cared about the balance and state of the game for it's release. I thought you, perhaps of all people, would want to hear from the devs. I'm comfortable waiting till release. This year has been the year of the flop though when it comes to gaming. I really dont want to see these guys release the game in it's current (or close to) state by launch. I hope to look forward to a strong player base going forward. Not another atrocious WW3 experience.
