Doesn't change the fact that niether of us know anything other than they felt they needed 3 additional months. but to claim that because they now have extra time they can change 80% of the game they spent the other 2 years planning and strategizing for is just as "dumb". and the GH reference makes no sense because it isn't an FPS. COD/BF3/Halo these are all FPS' and actually make sense to reference while stating a case for the style that FC3 is going for. Borrowing from those great games whether you like it or not is THEIR choice and a smart one if you ask me. THat doesn't mean that They still can't keep Far Cry's charm and give it it's own style, it just means that FC3 needs to build a foundation around what those other shooters did well while adding it's own style/feel/uniqueness. Adding a GH part to any of those games doesn't make sense but adding a map editor to COD would right?? and guess what?? it would be borrowinng something awesome from FC to make it a better offering and overall better FPS.
and it's not that I don't understand your release window theory, it's that it shouldn't matter. If the Dev's are that wish- washy on what they are building with Far Cry 3 then the game is doomed no matter when it is released. Massive needs to stick with their guns and follow their vision. Yes they need to make adjustments and trust me they can definitely make a few changes for the better if they listen to our cries' (And maybe they have). but completely overhauling the game because of a release date change is just not a smart thing and in the end none of us would be happy with the result, even you.
And I am not saying they should clone COD/BF3 and put it in the jungle and call it FC. I'm saying they can learn from other FPS's on how to make the gameplay fun and to enhance what is already great about the FC universe (tropical setting, exploration, freedom, map editor, etc.) from what I have seen in he videos they are on the right path.

Hey I agree with some of your points.
-Don't want the screen to be filled pop ups etc tho I read somewhere that they have toned down the pop ups and size. I'm happy enough to find out how I did after the match is over though
-CTD, it was different and it couldn't hurt to have another game mode.
-Was never a map maker but would like to see new approved for ranked map more often than on FC2.
As for answering questions I think I seen a thread updated a few days ago (though I thought some questions asked were asked before) :confused
But hey they are doing their best

Because it's much less buggy ?

If its going to be on a toggle funtion then players that use radar should be penalised because in my experience radar finds your enermies for you. The more map knowlege you have the deadlier it becomes. Will hosts be able to turn this off or is it down to the player ?
