To be perfectly honest, this is a double-edged sword. On the one side there's the high expectations of the game together with the fanboys/girls screaming for this game to finally reach CBT or even OBT. On the other side there's the disability or lack of motivation of Aeria to actually put effort into the production or speak openly and provide informations about the problems/achievements made up until now.
They did provide information regularly before, but i see more and more employees being called off to Eden Eternal, yet another child of theirs plagued with unbalance and a (considerably) strong ingame Mall.
What i want to state is, that i do love the concept behind the game. It looks colourful and i like the idea behind the class-specialization. And to be honest i am surprised of the loyalty on the side of the community.
Yet it wakes scepsis inside me when i read about these oh-so-cute Forum activities to call a corpse back to life just to not leave the work until today in vein.
My opinion so far, still i'm willing to help in the alpha. Probably out of pure curiosity. No idea how they'll choose their "localization-liaisons" or "balance-beholders" for the alpha though
