I don't see any promise that it would be in 1.2...I see the keyword "should" which doesn't mean definite or will be.
Not in 1.2 but in the next major patch after. When something is worked on and whoever is in charge says that it should arrive at designated time then it means something. It's ridiculous how they decide to ignore the matter out of the sudden and we had to wait since February to get any sort of a response in October. I also see a keyword "will". They "will extend this functionality" but where is the functionality they were supposed to extend?
