Yes, Sir. I think it's technically possible. I'm working in the IT project business and I know how the wind blows.The PvP team knows they have still time until september/october. Yes, that doesn't mean they are sitting around and waiting for patch day but maybe it means that some of the pvp team members have to help the other teams, or have to work on something different which is not so important or anything else....let's say I don't believe that the pvp team needs nine or ten month to create content (last wz was in dezember and 2.0 had 'only' the new bolster/competence function).

#2:
There will always be someone who complains or the 'Y u NO' fraction. No matter if they merge the patches or not. But if they merge and make an officale statement we can post this statement in every rage thread and take the wind out of their sails.

I still believe that most of the pvp players will become happy if their patch is released sooner and I also believe that it's possible.

What's your opinion?

I am sure people would give them a pass if they said "Hey all - we have patch 2.4 ready so we are going to deploy it immediately. This means there might not be one in August"
I think they are holding back content. In August last year you were able to play the Ancienct Hypergates at the GamesConvetion in Germany. Everybody who played it said, that it 'feels' finished. Nevertheless we had to wait until dezember...maybe the new space missions weren't finished.

Rembember, they told us to release content earlier if it's finished (at least a former german CM told us that in an interview) but that never happend...

Do you understand what I mean? (sry my english used to be much better )

Well, I am working as a software engineer including but not limited to 3D-serious gaming (Unity3D)... If any project manager in our company would come to me and tell me, that the deadline was changed to 8 weeks earlier, I would ask them where the extra manpower would come from and how he believes, I can manage to do my job and at the same time babysit a bunch of people, who do not know jack about the project and who need a week or two before they even can start on getting productive.
You might cut 8 weeks on a project of several years, but you cannot just cut 24 weeks to 16 or 16 to 8. That is simply not possible, unless you believe that there are lots of people just getting paid to do nothing right now.
