The developers have signed a deal with valve so that the game will be released with hl2 episode 3.
Or something.

It will be released... in the far off year... of 2002.

I said that because during your work all the fans of this project aren't aware of this work.

Sure they are. That's what the dev blogs are for.

True dat.
 
In all seriousness, I may have missed the original estimate beneath all the spammage.
 
Reiteration please :)

Even better: lock the thread...

...Or even worse, lock the thread and find that someone else starts a new thread asking for a release date.  :drevil:

It seems to be a lose-lose scenario from my point of view. Unless you thoroughly enjoy posting spurious release dates and features. I know I do...  :D

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but you did say 'original estimate'.

No need to apologise Fish. Valid response, free speech etc. I didn't specify.

Your maximum transparency into the development process is astounding.  Do you have any other spectacular exclamations Chicken Little?

Not pandering to your expectation for a due date is entirely different then the projecting being indefinitely delayed.  Quite frankly your inability to accept that we don't have a firm release date is rather grating considering the amount of effort people are dedicating to this project.  Furthermore Albert Einstein stated insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  You might want to ponder that before you attempt to push this particular button yet again.

WTF, dude.

If they try to give a release date and miss it then you go 'wah wah delayed indefinitely.'

If they try to avoid that trap then you ***** about how they're not communicating with the fans.

The reason they haven't given a release date is because they literally cannot predict when it will be done. They are not paid for this. They work on it whenever they get the time and motivation. There is just no way to tell how long the remaining work will take.

You say 'they don't even know if it'll be out before Christmas' like it's a bad thing. I'm not even counting on it being out next year. That's how long these things take.

It's particularly annoying given how open Diaspora has been and how much effort they've made to be more communicative than BtRL was.

All this is does is discourage them from ever talking to the fans.

You're totally welcome to do my day job for me so I can concentrate on finishing the game.

We don't mind people asking.

What we do mind is people asking, being told in detail exactly why we can't make a sensible estimate and thus don't give them out only for them to ask the same question yet again in a different way cause they think that we have some secret conspiracy going on and we're stupid enough to fall for that.

You got your custom title because you asked repeatedly and didn't seem able to understand the answers you were given.

Am I allowed to slander IronForge now?

Only admins, global mods and the game staff get to insult him here. You can of course invite him to chat with you on some other messaging system and insult him there. :p

As for slander, well it's only slander if it's not true. :D

Hey IronForge, I have a game for you that you might like in the meantime:

Pretend you're a civilian in the Rag Tag Fleet. The Galactica is usually visible not far from your own transport, whenever you're lucky enough to catch a glimpse out one of very few windows. You know the fleet's going somewhere, because the Admiral says so. Things sure seem to be happening occasionally, but on the whole it sometimes seems like you're lost in space. Then you notice that the people who have trust and support in the leadership of the Fleet seem to be... happier. They get called 'ungrateful whingers' less often, and they're threatened less with being airlocked.

Pretend you're one of those people. It's a truly immersive experience. You might even notice some parallels to this Diaspora waiting game...

Please dont let IronForge bring the rest of us fans down :( I for one am happy with whatever amount of time it will take you guys, even if its in 5 years :D So please dont be discouraged from talking to us!! We like talking with you!!

On another note; IronForge really doesnt like giving up, its amusing all the tactics used to try and weasle some numerical form of answer from you guys haha
