Your expectations are unrealistic. Why?
Because it's pretty normal behavior for MMOs to be honest. They tell you about future content. Some of it comes, some of it does not come. And they NEVER give you calander commitments until the content is done and pretty much ready for patching.
And there is a reason for it. I know people like to pretend from the comfort of their arm chair that content is just a few lines of code here and there and a simple regression test and release. Fact is they are one of the most complex types of gaming software there is.
Not to mention that this has been the general behavoir of:
- PnP RPG Games (Game Cons, Panels)
- Miniatures Games (Game Cons, Panels)
- Comic Books (Comic Cons, Panels)
- Sci Fi (Cons, Panels)
Pretty much any geek entertainment.....
Here is one that will blow your mind. On the BBS' (remember those) for Star Wars Fans circa 1981, there was speculation about how Anakin was turned into Vader. Non-confirmed "sources" said Obiwan and Anakin had a light sabre battle and Obiwan kicks Anakin "into a volcano". We waited YEARS to see if this was true or not ( it was close).
