    Agreed. But I would add that hopefully something is learned out of all of this. Namely, maybe don't release unfinished content on live and let some people access it? All well and go to move on, but if nothing is learned from this situation, Chris might just keep chucking stuff on live, which is not a particular development strategy that I think is great for the game.

    Ok, I admit I have the bad habit of generalizing things a bit.
    The funny thing is that I am quite sure we are pretty much on the same page about the communitcation (or lack thereof/distirbution of it).
    All I wanted to point out is that Tatarus is possibly the wrong example to make an..., well, example of it ^^
    Though I agree I could have done it a bit more ehh....nifty.

    This thread is hilarious. So @Chris had an impromptu moment and let some people try out the new Tartarus dungeon whether intended or not. So maybe some people got a Uber Arti of Who Knows What, no big deal.


    To @Chris ; next time you have one of these moments do let me know and I will help you test the place. If a few artifacts are left laying in a chest unattended, I will call it what all sailors and pirates call “Gear Adrift” and discreetly call it an act of oceanic acquisition.

    To @Time Lord ; Brother can you please do the honors and drop a couple of those Budweiser lizard commercials. You know the one with Frankie telling Louie to “Let it go”, and the one where the frogs are slapping Louie to death as revenge?

    If you were in a medicinal state, I would recommend you put on your bunny slippers, make a big cup of Cocoa and light up one Huuuuge bowl of your favorite indica.

    If you need your medicinal license feel free to come on over to Dragomir Mori and you will see a Pirate Galleon called “The Dragon”. Feel free to contact my Executive Officer Razulah. He will evaluate you for your card and then lead you to the dispensary on the bottom deck.

    Read quickly in case I get edited again as on my last post “winks”.

    If only there was a way to check if a stream had happened and then watch it later... oh wait...

    Yes, when they have eight-figure investments from big-name game publishers with deep pockets. Said publishers also tend to have a bunch of NO FUN ALLOWED rules.

    The SECOND book, in case you were getting ideas that the "printed book" impasse (presumably due to Tor) had somehow been broken without angels trumpeting from the heavens. And that Chris would even have known about it before the rest of us.

    I think that was on the "regular" Friday stream anyhow, which is not one of Chris's ninja streams. You know there were streams before Chris started doing them a few weeks ago, right?

    It's by the forum moderator, and likely locked to prevent it from being cluttered with discussions and arguments. Presumably this will be an everyday thing (at least, every day there's a stream) going forward; we'll see. I suspect @Arkah EMPstrike's threads will still be a little more in-depth and a better source for the details.

    Hence the reason why we no longer have the ones who used to work here! ;)

    Says who? You never heard of Bethesda's, "Shoot Your Coworker in the Knee Day"? :D

    That's how it works for a sailor... note the forearms.

    From watching past streams i thought Atos had the entire dungeon already mapped out. So should be able to just take those sections and plug them in where they should be. I mean we all got glimpses and offered input as he was building the different levels.
    I for one was excited about the giant skeleton Pirate guy that was shown in one of the streams.

    I think Chris has a clear vision of what he wants to do and what not. This thread shows -again- that he knows how to keep people excited and in touch with the game, even those who ‚left‘ the game...

    Besides all the right statements about a summery of his work: what would be with the game and forum if @Chris wouldn‘t do, what and how he is doing?

    And: what do we know about the other devs (besides List and Sannio)?

    Mostly nothing. Only what Darkstarr provides once a month and quarter ...

    As long as people are talking about something, it smells ‚alive‘ ...

    Hopefully more developer work will be shown like before to let us talk for a long long time :)

    Keep the good work @Chris, even if we sometimes have other opinions about how chaotic things should be ;)
