A lot of the salt is quite deservedly given due to a lot of false expectations given. Squadron 42 coming out deadline 2016 then 2017 now we might get a presentation on it coming out sometime in the future! Chris Roberts saying quarterly updates seriously why does he do it we know its horseshit and still it gets said. 3.0 is very like 2.0 i.e. it has been said that it is the foundation and everything will speed up after and its all coming together. You know the fool me once thing! The other laugh is all the building blocks are in place and development will speed up *(the optimist) how many times does this have to be proven false? 3.0 itself has been badly handled we can talk development in parallel coming out last December we can talk the fact they have changed burn down so many times to imply it wasn't far away when they know know it was ages away. They promise to much and deliver very little that will always leave people feeling underwhelmed. It seems they are so scared honesty will drive the funds away so they have to be dishonest. People laughling call it open development it really is not. Do you really know what stage the game is at? Do they have anything developed in parallel? Will the current funds build anything at all>? The fact that this project is still being funded shows how deep the hope runs. It is also usually better to discuss problems *(vent the salt) than not which would probably just lead to more refunds.
