Ok- so this may sound kind of stupid.. but how do you read that table?
Is "Planned"- just a general overview of what they are focusing on?
And are the "Current Tasks" what will be implemented in this patch? or is it just things that they are working on and will be released at a later point?
Obviously Future is what else they want to add on...
It just seems like a massive patch if the "Current Tasks" list is implemented Wednesday...
I'm confused on this too. Does it mean we'll have jumping, and name revisions to our classes? Also, are companies coming in the new patch on Tuesday? I mean, if they got that ENTIRE column ready to go then I'm ready to cheer on SE's new producer. Overall I've been quite impressed with the improvement in communication SE's giving here. I'm already starting to see some long-time players who left at the beginning making a return. Let's hope this trend continues!
As I understand it, the middle column is "Stuff that is currently in the works" (not necessarily next patch, but in the near future) and the right column is "What we plan to work on after we finish what we're working on now"
As far as jump goes, the wording would imply that they are still in the "Considering the possibility", i.e. "We're ******* with it and we want to make sure it won't break anything before we decide whether we're doing it or not". Ditto for the Auction House.
On a side note, I didn't like this:
"Afterwards, I noticed a number of posts criticizing me for my light-hearted tone. I apologize. Sometimes my personality gets the better of me. I hope you’ll be kind enough to allow me a certain amount of tomfoolery in the future."
Personally, I liked the light-hearted tone. I'd rather hear a guy talk from his heart rather than an impersonal breakdown of features. Tell us what you're -really- thinking, and if having a good nature and a positive attitude is light-hearted then so be it. Any ******* can detail what they're doing in a bland, emotionless fashion. I, for one, like the idea of a developer that actually expresses a natural enthusiasm for the game. The people who would criticize that can go **** themselves.
