Actually it's a fundamental component in the field of psychology, a well established arm of behavioral science & treatment, not Pseudo-philosophical claptrap.
Are you trained in the field of psychology and qualified to help people "self-manage their expectations"? If so, I'll retract my characterization.
Let me clarify. I like this game. I play it a lot when I'm home. I am actually a fan of the developer updates they've been releasing and would like to see more of them. I am not a fan of the way they have consistently avoided any communication on the subject of SGRAs. However, at this point, they've been so consistant that I don't expect any better. My respect for their willingness to communicate on the issue is nil. That would be adjusting my expectations to fit reality, you see.
