Isn't this entirely unfair on their behalf, let alone Keith's. It has been a while, and ofc I could be wrong, but I think the last roadmap came out on time. There had even been threads started whining about how Keith's first road map was set back.

As far as I can see it, the game is still in perfectly capable hands, and any of Keith's road maps no matter how "small" will have us loads better off.

Small steps guys, Rome wasn't built in a day, last road map was okay, and I very much doubt this second one will be terrible, at least bad enough for people to sh** all over.

I still have faith in Keith, but I'm sorry...this summer of nerfs has devastated this game. We've seen a nearly 50% drop in raiding due to his nerfs...the damage caused was unnecessary in every freaking way.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt because I agree, he's the best thing to happen to the games management in literally years, but...the face plant he did this summer with the nerfs was unnecessary and damaging and it hasn't been addressed yet...it needs to be.

So on to pressing matters:
1.Any news on how the Roadmap will pan out the following month/months?
2.Any news on the pending 5.5 update? We thought it will come out in September.
3.Any news on more class balancing?
4.Any news on returning companions? Some of us are eagerly waiting for certain companions.

If you give us a little hints on these notions,it would be great,cuz we are impatient to hear something. You were rather silent lately,which is understandable due to unforseen issues. Please let us know in a brief post,what is the direction.

Thank you!
Provide you with updates, I can!
  1. The roadmap is still in progress. We have been shuffling some things around with respect to 5.5 and 5.6 and we need that to settle before we can let you know exactly what is coming and when.
  2. It was our plan to put out Game Update 5.5 in late September but we have made the decision to move it into early October (currently 10/10). We did this to allow us more time to focus in on quality for our Game Updates to avoid some of the issues we had with 5.4.
  3. Class balance is still planned for 5.5. I expect I will start putting out those details starting next week.
  4. We know returning Companions is something there is great interest in. As soon as we have an announcement on any Companions coming back in a Game Update, you will be the first to know!

Oh wow, that's a frustratingly long wait for anything to happen. Will we see the Roadmap before 10/10?

In any case, thanks for the update!

Put "what" out exactly? the next patch, the roadmap, cookies and milk????? Please be more specific and less cryptic with responses. All it does it get people even more worked up.

And one other thing I feel it is appropriate to receive comment on ---> after the serious issues with the last patch, I do feel it would be both prudent and warranted to have Keith come in and give us an outline of what exactly the studio is doing to insure a better rollout result with the next patch. Why and how will the next patch be less troublesome for players exactly? Players deserve to have the broad brush strokes around quality addressed by the games Producer. The absence of this sort of transparency leaves players to foment and create their own negative narratives about what the studio is/is-not doing in terms of new content, quality of content, and timeliness of content release.
Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.

Please skip this part of it...isn't that what you've done the past 2 updates, literally ALL summer? How much time could you possibly need?

SKIP IT! All you've managed to do this summer is make the game worse Eric...all you've done is run off half your damn players because Story Mode is the peak of most players skill level. SKIP CLASS BALANCE because clearly whoever is doing it, is terrible at it. PLEASE...do something else. I'd rather have you focus on emotes.

I will edit it into my answer, I was talking about Game Update 5.5 (as they asked about in their #2 question). I will get that updated to be more clear, thanks for catching that!

Thank you for the update Eric!
I am very eager to see what is planned for 5.5 and returning companions soon. I hope Juggernaut and Sorcerer make it into class balance,because they have pressing concerns to their damage intake and damage output.

It is very understandable to move 5.5 till October. In our country there is a saying - measure 10 times,cut once. So I understand it this is the system you go on,which is comendable and important for us.
