For any EU players, keep in mind that US is still on DST, so for us, the stream will be one hour earlier than usually: 9 PM in UK, 10 PM in Germany.
Thanks Jerba, much appreciated. i would have forgott it, that the US is still on DST

Maybe this post is sarcastic, but you can't say they are avoiding doing it because of poor communication when they are the ones that are in charge of everything to begin with.
Well, I thought of it because Eric has admitted on the livestreams that he's not that great with dates and days, as there was a thing with him almost having something on Thanksgiving. So I figured it's possible that he put together the schedule not thinking about it being on a Thursday and as they got to today, they realized the 3rd is a Thursday and decided class changes were something better suited for beginning of the week.

They have not changed much, but Eric has been pretty good with the expansion info about being in there in the announcement threads and responding to questions.

Why not just announce the major mechanics changes and then do the livestream afterwards. Anyone who has seen the datamining knows what's going down, just looking for confirmation or denial that what we've seen is true. Also it would be nice to be able to discuss on the forums.

Oh well, one more disappointing decision.

This actually interests me more than the class changes at this point anyway.
I may even actually tune in, since I have the day off, and a burning question about repeating chapters and Companion influence.

Knowing the class changes is something everyone wants to know I would rather learn about the story and difficulty as I play.
Totally fair questions! In short, we are looking at adding a new stream to our schedule with some special guests (so you can see some new faces beyond Charles, Ben, and I). Adding that into the schedule shook things up a bit so we needed to make some changes. The outcome is the following:
  • Repeatable Chapters are a good follow-on topic from Uprisings since it relates to content difficulties, so we shifted that up to this week's stream.
  • We know Class changes are a topic you guys want to learn about ASAP. That information will now happen outside of a livestream. Our plan is to have those posts up Monday, possibly Tuesday.
  • We will likely host our stream with special guests next week, more info soon.
Hope that explains the changes.

1) I am hilariously bad with dates and times. 2) Although we try to not drop information late on Fridays, so we can answer questions. Timing in this case was more about the stream schedule getting shifted around. 3) There is still an 80% chance I forget to move the Thanksgiving stream date on the presentation...I really should go do it right now.

I'm certainly not being excited by what I've seen so far.
Combat changes are FAR more important than repeating KOTFE chapters as this affects literally everyone. Combat should of taken priority, tbh there prob still sorting out last minute changes.

While I would prefer to learn more about class changes than replayable chapters, it sounds better that you'll be releasing the class info on a Monday so that we can debate over the week rather than telling us the details on a Thursday and not answering any questions until after the weekend.

So what will the difficulties be? Easy will be 3 sky troopers, medium will be six, and hard will be 30?

Don't really care about repeatable chapters much, but at least hopefully there won't be any bad news tomorrow.
