Captains;

 

They'll make the announcement more formally in the Update, but the Team agreed that it would be alright to let everyone here know immediately.

 

The final tally was 6 to 1, with three major issues, in order:

 

1)  Meta-Game Data

2)  Campaign/Alliance Missions QA/Review

3)  Production Overhaul

 

All three will be targeted for the coming Release in mid April, at which point the Team will hold another vote.

 

We'll keep you posted in this week's Update, as always.

 

Sorry for the bad news, but we wanted to let you all know as soon as possible, just in case any of you were making weekend plans. ;)

Unfortunate, but worth the wait if it means a more sound product.

Aah, that's too bad!

But I think everyone here would rather wait for a more polished product than something rushed out and full of bugs.

 

Hopefully the Belle bingo board won't run out of Belles when the beta is released... then it's up to BCS to chose them, or else the voting will be all over the place with shots in the dark.

Trust me, with how many remain on the bingo board, and how many shots in reasonable light we plan to take, we're not running out of interviews before release.  Thanks for letting us know, Legate.

Mignonette;

 

We haven't thought of keeping the interviews going post launch, although it might be fun. I guess we'd have to see what the fans say. :)

I agree with what has been said so far: don't feel rushed to deliver. Take the time you need to deliver a nice, shiny polished product :D

 

And if the writers are willing to keep up the interviews I'll be more than happy to read them!

Well, we can always start voting for the Morgana if there's a shortage of belles.... ;)


Freespace now has nothing better to do than upload Videos of him playing games onto youtube because Y2 still isn't out?

 

And he's plugging said videos here because, 'why not?' :)

 

Well, at least he doesn't totally suck...

Like everybody else said, take your time with the game. I'd like to play the finished version more than a version that is full of bugs etc. :D

Speaking of that, did the VB Team test that the Beta client can start without a dirty cache? Seeing as how VB hasn't been released before in any capacity most people kind of won't have one.

*O*  Legate has tested the game!  Tell me what you saw when you looked upon the holy light!   Were thine eyes burned away by the blinding purity?

Oh well in that case I'll just bring Hood and Bulldog and Rawalpindi along and take care of that. One less Bratwurst Belle to worry about
