If that is true, it begs the question, why didn't they just include that as part of the release?
It wasn't ready, release date set in stone, etc.
I bet we'll have another game mechanics update a month from that one, then again in a month, etc... They could have waited for all of these patches to be implemented, but that means a loss of months worth of subscription fees. Simple enough, and too bad.
Does anyone have a source for this? I had sort of assumed we would be getting patches every month to start, much like when FFXI started (and like many other new MMOs). Three months is a long time to wait for a game that has so many things left unimplemented.
Well like I said, a marketplace update is scheduled in 1-2 weeks so more than likely they mean that these monthly updates will not have any content but simply adjustments to the existing mechanics, and every 3 months a larger update with new content will be implemented.
I think this is roughly how XI worked too, although the difference wasn't so clear back then. Edited, Oct 4th 2010 2:47am by Hyanmen
