I really approve how you handled this, BW.

Yes delays happen, that's life, but thanks for the heads up, thanks for giving us a projected date, and thanks for being clear.

Keep it up!

So in response BW has laid out their framework for the next few updates, what they plan to put in them, and when they are going to be out. Again, this is because people have been asking for this information.
With the information, BW was pretty clear that what they laid out were speculative dates and goals. Eric was upfront about the possiblity of the dates not being set in stone and I think most people can respect that. Testing anything on a massive scale isn't something done in a few hours. It takes a lot of time to find issues and then correct them and re-search for issues that fix may have created.

It's this kind of nonesense why developers are hesitant to give transparency to players. It's good that they give us an idea of when something is coming and we should understand that things can always happen unexpectedly that could give delays like this.

You simply fail to understand the complexity of the programming behind an MMO and that you simply can't test everything or foresee every possible issue that could ever happen.

I am glad they keep us in the loop now and I accept that things like this can happen. This perfection of patches that you expect is simply unrealistic.

BW have made some big mistakes and I am glad that they've chosen to change their approach towards the community. The last thing we need is to have the lid back on and nobody knowing what's happening or when. Dates are always tentative and things can always go wrong unexpectedly. If that's not good enough for you, I foresee a lot of angry times in your life.

I wanted to give an update so I wasn't leaving you guys hanging! Right now we look entirely on track to publish Game Update 2.1.1 tomorrow morning with maintenance. Assuming no other speed bumps jump out, Amber will be posting maintenance messaging and patch notes later today.

Thanks everyone! Should anything change I will let you know but otherwise we are good to go for tomorrow.

Hey eric thanks for update, but can you update the APAC players on their transfers to NA servers? Many people have taken breaks from the game till this announcement is made and some info would be nice considering that you expect us to be playing on NA servers by the time 2.2 is out.
