    Hi RedDragon :)

    As Ed stated in another post a while ago, we're still waiting for 'confirmation' here as well - but will update as soon as we know more. We would prefer to make sure we have a successful hard launch where the issues we are facing now are fixed first - not to complicate things further ;)

    Thank you =)

    Yep I can wait until you are ready to launch. I think it's more important to try and get as many things fixed before you launch rather then play fixup the day of the launch.

    Tell Ed to keep up the great work!! :beerchug:

    thinlk all updates have been delayed until the first week of October, VU13 is a big step..i think MA have some issues atm..no further news from MA and its so close to there so - called update, I dont think its gonna happen otherwise Ed would have released some news by now, blame MA not the PP's for this delay.

    however Kim released some news about day/night cycle change for calypso and less darker nights, but nothing else really was announced and no indication on the date of the update

    Just a quick update on the last post about the vu.

    So far it has been postponed until tomorrow. And if not tomorrow, it will be next Tuesday ...

    Translation from mindarkish: "we have a small issue and need 1 more day to fix it, but if we fail we'll need 6 days to fix what we've done on the wednesday" :p

    We are descending into the muddy waters of poor announcements and circles of communication again!
    I know that MA performs the updates, BUT I expect it to be in bold capitals on the front page if planet partner updates get delayed.
    As I personally haven't got a clue whether the mechs were a teaser for the vu or not, and also don't know if your next update can be considered a soft launch part2 or whatever, then another planet which has announced some of its new features WILL get more of my attention.

    Still, seeing muddy water is better than no communication at all, but not by very much. Under the circumstances, thank you Lykke for keeping in touch here, at least.

    I am sorry that we have not kept you more updated than we have, but today's update has been a little bit of a mystery as well.

    I just received a small update though and will post that in the news section.

    Thank you for the patience.

    I wonder why people are so annoyed about the VU delay. You weren't supposed to even know about the VU until it went to the news, as it always was :). Keep this attitude and the devs will stop dropping even these little bits of unofficial info.

    I'd rather see a delay than have to deal with all the latter Bug fixes that have happened in the last few VU updates..:banghead:
    Would be nice to just get the VU and not be a Beta tester for a week or 2 afterwords..:headscratch:

    I haven't sensed that anyone is annoyed about the VU delay as such. In fact people in this thread especially would prefer to wait and get fewer bugs.

    ..but here you also joking refer to the 'communication' element. It is the contact and communication which seems to be such a poor area, especially at MA. Xandra is being highly ironic here about how communication to its planet partners is NOT being handled by MA ...

    The crunch question may be: do the planet partners just have to put up with it (simply accept it) as it is, or can they put any kind of pressure on MA to improve things?
    This is what we are also trying to do with our comments etc to Lykke and Ed on things where we disagree or see room for improvement.

    For a planet partner, there are things they have developed using existing features which need to be put in a vu by MA, and there are maybe also newly developed features being brought out by MA and partners together, e.g. mechanoids and possibly special abilities.
    For a planet partner that hasn't hard launched yet, I'd imagine getting the variety in - full econony of crystals being used for crafting etc - is more important. Maybe MA have said that they are giving priority to whatever surrounds the mechanoids, and said other Cyrene stuff is thus not going in. Maybe the delay is that to be a 'rounded' vu, the planet-specific things for Cyrene really need to be in and MA have now accepted this, but therefore need a few more days.

    Also, even if details must be kept secret until launch, I think people really do look forward to what is coming. But knowing an approximate level of the importance of a vu is also important.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to improved instances on the EU platform as a whole, for example. And I'm looking forward to mechanoids :)

    Hi,

    Well, I was a quite cynical, I admit. But wouldn't you think that MA's business partners, the PP's, should know what's going on? In time? Obviously they do not, as I read from Lykke's posts.

    I don't understand such. If I'm to be to roll out a new version of my software for my business partners, they get a message a few weeks before, at least. And if I see it's dubious of it getting ready in time, I revoke this at least a week before the planned implementation.
    I don't play silly games with my business partners, and they are able, at any time, to get a full & honest report of how things are going. They'd use tar and feathers on me otherwise, or, more hurting, would search for a company that would fit their needs better.

    I don't understand this "we have no clue" from the PP's. I only can explain it to me with them having no other provider available, and thus being doomed to "swallow or die".

    This isn't, in my book, a business correlation as it is to be desired.

    I not, at all, doubt the abilities and the knowledge of the Planet Partners. For this, I'm just lacking the knowledge of the details of the certain business correlations.
    But it doesn't look good for me.

    "We don't know what will happen tomorrow" isn't exactly what I'd love to see in my company.
    I'd go into a frenzy, believe me. That's not a basis to make reliable business. That's not a way to secure the jobs of the people working for me, and accepting such, IMHO, would be kind of a betrayal for the people that help me earning my money. I'd not do this, I understand that it's their work that earns my food, and that I, hiring them, have accepted kind of a responsibility for 'em.

    That's what I wanted to point at. The weakness in that the PP's might be, by having made the deal with MA, by having accepted this deal. The problems they face might be due to this. No attack onto 'em, at all! But I'd not like to change place with any planet partner.

    And if MA cannot deliver in time - well, this is a phenomenon known since long. Don't deal with dabblers if you don't want dabblers work. But they already signed in ...

    Hard a task, and I don't envy their jobs.

    Maybe, if the PP's combined, and filed a large law suit - but would the game survive this?

    Have a good time!
