I wish they would stop making promises about the patch. Although I give Mr Maddox a lot of credit as far as all the changes and enhancements go. Oleg, I would appreciate a firm release date even if it's a month from now. So long as it's released at that time.

Don't you understand that in development, it's impossible to give a firm release date.... except if you accept to deliver an unfinished product that would need further bug corrections and some function development afterward?

You probably never delt with big software development projet... but for example I can tell you something... even on specialized development (big project), the "final receipt" is never the end of the development... it is called the "release" and factured... but the customer allways also allways pay for an additional years which is called "curative and evolutive maintenance" in order to correct the bigges bugs and to develop the functionalities that were unfinished at release date.

Now for IL2 and other game software... there's no possible way to please all the gamers

- if you don't announce release dates, even approximative ones, you get slammed by gamers for lack of communication
- if you announce release dates and release on time, you get slammed by gamers for releaser an unfinished product that would haved neended further refinments and bug correction
- if you announce approximative release date (which is allways understood by players as a "firm release date") but delay the release in order to finish the game to the maximum (it's never "finished").. then you get slammed by players for delaying the release
- if you delay the release not too long but announce possible further patch, you get slammed by the players for being incompetent

So tell me were the right way?... tell me how to avoid getting slammed by the players (a part of them at least)?
Sorry there's no way... you'll get slammed whatever will happen.

In My oppinion Oleg choose the best way by trying to release the best possible patch... that's all I'm asking for.
Release date?... I don't care, I'm patient because I know I will have good fun when it's time
