Man, this has turned into a dark place. Depressing. Even the Matrix Militia now sniping within ranks about dopey NDAs and perceived shortcomings in faith to the party line. Poor abj6969 can't even take a joke anymore, his 1000-yard stare is a haunting prelude to a complete PTSD breakdown.
Steve is not going to complete this game, not even a nerfed no-A.I. version. It simply is not going to happen - it's okay to admit the inevitable, doing so is simply an admission of the facts, the steepening trajectory of non-development, and not a slam on Steve. The best case scenario is that Failtrix puts an actual team on the job, but that is unlikely because they clearly don't give a ****. I mean guys, seriously... when you clear away the good wishes and hopeful thoughts and high regard for hard work and our enthusiasm for WiF itself, whats left? Do you have a line at which the importance of results jumps ahead of everything else?
Did you make any constructive contribution to the development of this game? Probably not... If you did, than I will make excuses now for what I'm going to write here:
Get out of here and never come back! You're abusive!
I am not a playtester, if that's what you mean. I have periodically contributed to the opinion threads re: maps and optional rules and so forth, but I presume that falls below your threshold of value. I have answered some questions on the threads that talk specifically about CWiF, which I have played exhaustively. If yours is the quaint and disreputable opinion that commentary or criticism should be restricted to the tiny circle of intimates involved directly in the production-testing of the game, then you of course may regard my input as unworthy.
Criticism should be productive and not counterproductive. Where's the constructive side in the post I quoted? Can Steve or testers or anyone in this forum get anything positive out of this writing? It isn't there. If it isn't there, why post it, Crussdaddy? To make people angry or to put your frustrations in writing?
You may be disappointed. You may write so here. But to write: "Steve is not going to complete this game, not even a nerfed no-A.I. version" looks to me as an insult to the people contributing this.
When this comes unto the market (and I'm pretty positive it will go to the market) you are probably going to sit quiet in a corner here and buy it. Well: the first thing I'm going to do in this forum if MWIF hits the market is to ask you to make your excuses public here. Not to me. No, I'm not important, but to Steve!
