I have to disagree with what mktours writes.
While it is a huge job to develop the game it is not the same thing to implement a modification so not at all unreasonable that new patches can be worked out in a few weeks or months. It would be nice if full game testing could be done before each and every patch is implemented but not realistic for a free service.
It is not necessarily the case that 'professional' game developers would do a better job than 'amateurs'. What matters is experience, skill, intelligence, commitment, ...
While I do agree that 1.11 is biased towards Axis and probably a mistake has been made with the recent patch am more than happy to be tolerant as the problem is being addressed and we can hope that balance will be restored soon. In the meantime am happy to just play another game or just enjoy the game as it is, there is always the option to play on different settings or restore to an earlier version. Personally would rather see efforts being made to improve the game even if they are not always perfect.
It is fine for anybody to disagree with me. But what you said in your post has nothing against what I had said or meant. Did I said "a patch can't be done in 1 week"? I didn't. It depends on how big a patch is, If the patch is changing the name of an army, it could be done in seconds, If the patch is about changing the combat engine, which is the core of the game, it may require 1 month of full time in coding.
"It is not necessarily the case that 'professional' game developers would do a better job than 'amateurs'. What matters is experience, skill, intelligence, commitment, ..." this statement is true because you use "It is not necessarily the case", few things, if any, is absolute in the world. Did I rule out genius amateurs Vs fool professionals? I didn't, and Why should I ? So it is strange for you to come out and tell me that there are exceptions. It is fine if you said Morvael is genius while the original developer is fool. That is your opinion, and I would respect it. What I meant is that generally a professional should have more knowledge and skill than amateur, since they got more experience and more training. if you are disagree with me, you should argue against what I meant.
