Prolly another one of those misunderstandings that happen on here regularly :)

I think more clarification on the missed December date is required. cos it's only April, December is like 8 months away, so I'd like to know how they missed a date 8 months in the future...damned Devs *shakes fist at monitor* ;)
Yea I was just making light of every update since they missed the December release jb has had to explain why. Hell I'd hate to put out an update if I knew that was coming every time.

Are you saying my comment is negative.
Please, as @strategos2411 said, it's a misunderstanding. We are all here in the forums to make this game better. If I have offended you, you have my humble apologies.

It matters not of the day it comes! They may well have seen a release at some stage ... in any job that's true, not just development .. the difference being that most developers have past projects to compare deadlines with, this is their first major project and deadlines will change.

It makes it a best guess scenario, and I'm happy to wait just as long as it comes.

I may be a new member here ... but I've been watching development and waiting to make sure it was a worthy investment .. as early access has stung many people before ! But from reading and observing the devs on this one, it seems genuinely like they want to make a game they would play themselves .. and hopefully profit heavily along the way :D
From my standpoint, this game has been a 'worthy investment'... If we all get a game out of it, so much the better. But the journey together has been the important thing :)

Coming from a member of staff, I find this inappropriate. So far I've sided with the devs or at least kept quite.
Taking the Mickey out of customers now?

They'll have an update out "soon". I heard the keyboard on their update posting computer failed and it'll be a few weeks before they can get a new one.
So cheeky, update out this weekend. Nothing amazing, we could speculate dates now but seems silly to do that again. I'll try and include some short videos of AI or .gifs at least. Lots of people want to see zeds, they're nothing amazing yet but should be good fun.

Can't tell if you're serious? @strategos2411 is clearly being sarcastic in his post. He's also not a member of 'staff' he donates far too much time to these forums.

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.

Nope, he knew/knows where @RickGrimesdd was/is coming from, he's joking about/busting balls for laughs... as like me, he probably knows a few "personalities" that comes with our names and knows who is being serious and when... and when to be serious or not himself... hope so, he is lead mod :rolleyes::p

Not taking the mick out of customers, just making light of another misunderstanding on the forums, and as JB said, i'm not staff, they couldn't afford me :D so I volunteer my free time to moderate and stuff for the team

Right with you there @strategos2411 , I think we'd both be able to bankrupt this project within a week!
Like you, I'm in for the long term.
We've backed an idea, a dream from the Dev. team.
You're a form mod, I'm just a 'fan boy'.
It's the journey we're taking together with the team that is important to me.

Isn't This Exactly What Dayz Did? Pushed back an alpha for years then released basically nothing?

Not saying that you all are releasing nothing, or are pushing it back for years, but don't promise anymore dates or coming soon if you don't know. It creates false hopes and gets people discouraged. You can't keep hype for a game if you continue to do this.

Still waiting though.
Hopefully not for years

My own personal opinion is it won't be anywhere near years!
[Disclaimer time again - I have no interaction with the team at @a2z(Interactive); except via threes forums. My comments here and opinions are strictly mine]
I haven't followed the DayZ development process myself. But I think it was built by a small team, much smaller than we have here.
This community is all about keeping the dream alive.
If we can all 'get behind' the dev. team, and mentally give them more reason to bring us "the game they want to play", then that's what we should be doing.
I'll end this here, before I go off on too much of a rant about supporting the team (!)

Well the wait is both good and bad.. If people wait too long they will give up on the game. I understand that they want to release a high quality product but they shouldn't wait for too long... Personally the wait doesn't bother me but it bothers a lot of other people..

None of us should give up on our dreams, but as @Александр says, we don't want to wait too long for them.
Unlike @way420, I've been almost completely grey for a few years now, but as they say, we should give the team the 'room' they need to bring this game to us.
