Here is what I love .. this Thread has more posts then ANY other thread on the forums. Period. AND NOT ONE GD RESPONSE BY DEVS?!?!?! Go figure. Pathetic and lazy.
I'm not going to dig them up but there are yellow responses to this subject (not sure if they're in the thread somewhere or not). I think there have even been fairly recent dev comments if I'm not mistaken (I may be). They just haven't told us what we want to hear (hard patch #/date) so its easy to forget/ignore.
