Doesn't the 6 weeks update commitment only happens after FTP launch ?

Owh dear lord, and this is a big part of our community, gg.... They really should ban this type of players from posting in our forum, honestly, sigh....

You don't have any experience at all with creating software, do you?

Just another gamer who thinks they can estimate effort times because they spent a couple years playing CoD or WoW. No actual knowledge, but a lot of expectation with a healthy dose of I'm-Always-Right.

Thought so.

why did it take Blizz 10 months to release patch 5.0? That's 10 months with out any content. It takes Blizz YEARS to release new Battlegrounds.

WoW has 8 battlegrounds. That's 1 new battleground a year. SWTOR has 4 right now (soon to be 5) in less then 1 year.

As for Operations part of is it does take a long time to make. (Again look at how long it takes WoW to make a new Raid in Cataclyims they only added what 1 new raid after the expansion went live? course they did add 3 dungeons in content patches but still thats 3 dungeons and 1 new raid over 2 years) The other part is that they are switching to the new 6 week content cycle so they have build up a lot of new content to release over time.

Oh, and my favorite part is that the OP edited the first post to remove the parts that proved he did zero research. Looks like he realizes he made a silly claim, so he removed it, but he refuses to admit it and instead jumped to some other argument. It's a common tactic of immature and uninformed arguers.

They've been converting the entire game over from one model (subscription-only) to a subscription-F2P-hybrid.

Where have you been the last 3 months? How did you miss this? You think that just happens on a whim, or that there's a +5 Wand of Lightning Business Model Conversion?

I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but it's extremely difficult...

Novare Coast came out with 1.2, which was released in April. This was five months ago.

This analogy is a poor fit. A better one would be McDonald's telling you about a combo that gives you a sandwich, fries and a drink and then complaining that you don't also get chicken nuggets with it because you see a sign for chicken nuggets in the restaurant.


I'm sorry for disappointing you, though I have to admit my priorities do not include gaining your approval. I'm sorry nonetheless.
Well done sir, well done. I lol'd rather hard at the chicken nugget analogy
