Do you guys need another Community manager from the other side of the pond to help with taking out those pesky porn-spam bots?

These have been dealt with now, it was an issue with some of the securities on the forums.

Well, while not really discussing anything right now, I am still looking into the forum at least twice a day...would love to see some news or gameplay. xD To be honest, I can't wait...

Same here. Too long since the last news. At least you could give us news about incoming news.😇

Actually, it makes more sense than you think. Since its better to know when are we expected to receive updates (in the form of news, trailers or even gameplays) than to wait indefinitely for any mention from the developers. I understand the fact they still can't give us a release date, but at least we could know how long their current silence is going to last.

In fact, that's what they did when they first anounced the game. They said more information about the game would be revealed on the "What's next de Focus" event. But we havent heard any word from the devs since then.

The problem is if you dont have news. Its pointless to mention an announcment of NO NEWS. The devs have nothing new to show us and they are all under NDAs. It can generate hype but it can also be very damaging if you release information to soon.

I guess you are right. It just that is quite anoying not to see any hint about the progress. Since I'm a backer of Star Citizen and a follower of crowdfunded games in general I might have the bad habit of expecting constant updates. I apology if someone has felt bothered by my impatince.

@ansark We will probably get news soon. Yeah you are right indy games and crowd funders are more transparent about their developement process because they rely on the support and hype of their backers to have a remote chance of success. That and buyers pay for a product that isnt final so its risky too so people want updates so they know their money is not wasted.

To be honest, this is wrong. It is absolutely NOT pointless to announce there will be no news until a certain date, because this way your fans and followers won't get impatient or even angry. Yeah, this sounds strange but this is how social media nowadays work, you just have to throw some bits of flesh in the general direction of the hungry crowd, even if it is only tofu. This is the main reason while publishers and devs just keep their mouths shut until the last year or even months of development so they are able to provide their fans with news pretty much every week or even every few days. And if it's only artworks and (in BFGA2s case) ship schematics or details.

We're currently working on the communication planning to have something regular and informative to give you every week 🙂

Far more content will be published closer to release, but for now the team is focused on developing the best possible sequel!

Really impatient to play this game, seems really great on the project !

Thanks, I really can't wait, I am a huge fan of the Total War series, Paradox games and Star Wars: Empire at War...and to see a developer attempting to merge something from these games with the 40k universe is just great.

Well, they literally just put up a brand new FAQ, so if I had to guess, I'd say "now-ish".

@romeo That FAQ is from february.
