I personally don't care that we are not getting any updates at the moment and I have said that many times in here.
As long as this new 3DXChat 2 shows to have been worth the Waite.
I don't play and have not played many other games but from what I understand there aren't many if any online games that do not update the game in regular intervals.
The only thing that varies is the amount of updates they do.
So in that case if that is correct, then expecting updates in a game like this would be justified and considered part of the game.
You can also say the game has never really been at a stage where there were things that didn't have to be finished or supplied.
Like the FFF and MMM poses where the menu was there but was empty among other things.
We have always been waiting on things to be added or fixed and have gone from month to month under that understanding.
The updates and the expectancy of them are part of the game and has been ever since I have been playing.
I wonder how many of the people that are insisting we are not paying for updates would still pay theirs if it was announced there would be no further updates.
For me and from what I see in these forums and hear in the game from lots of others, continued development on the game is part of what the tens of thousands of dollars the devs receive every month is paying for.
You can say it is their game yes, they own it and they developed it, but it is our game to, without us it will just be an empty shell earning nothing for them.
I have not seen any official announcement saying April or May, I have only seen here say by other players where some have even said later than that.
The devs have only ever said soon, have not given any reference to any dates of completion.
It is ok for people to say why not just un sub until the update comes through, well people could do that and likely will have if we had any idea of how long it was going to take.
But that I think kind of explains why it was never said how long it was likely to take.
For myself I knew it would be likely to take a while and chose to stay and keep supporting the game, but I can understand others that are upset about things.
The decision on doing that was taken away from them by lack of communication, they were not told how long it would take.
Plus one thing I have always wondered about, if we only pay to play and updates are not included in that, why have a development and suggestions section in these forums.
Why have an upcoming updates section and others that are all focussed on the development of the game.
That itself suggests that updates are a part of the game, and that is fact Rob.
