Hi Thomas.
I personally think your far too kind in this. Yes I am greatful you
have informed the community why Beta18 hasn't been released as
announced previously. But asking the community whether they want it
now unfinished or to wait I feel is unnecessary. You as the developer
should do as you wish and what you need to do to satisfy yourself. I
honestly believe this decision should be purely down to you, and agree
that you should not release anything, any betas, any finished product
or anything until you are as happy with it as you ar going to be. Yes
people will mown and complain, but at the end of the day you create
these games in your spair time, for your enjoyment as much if not more
than to make money, so I think your satisfaction is key.
I think you've given the community far too much freedom in saying what
they want from this game etc, and believe it should be your project,
and people will buy it when its ready, regardless of if they have had
input into the game or not.
Sorry for that rant, but this pandering to blind gamers too much gets
on my nerves, mainstream developers wouldn't dream of asking their
customers such a question and people still buy their games. Yes keep
us up to date with progress, but no more.
THanks

I agree, and also I don't think there should be any hurry, bring it out
when you can. Remember this too, always have fun with what your doing.

Subject: [Audyssey] Quick MOTA Announcement


Hi everyone,

I know I told a lot of you that Mysteries of the Ancients beta 18
would be done about the end of February. A lot of you  have started
asking questions off list what is going on, why isn't the beta ready,
etc and I thought I'd make a quick public announcement explaining
where we stand on things. As so often happens with creating accessible
games  as a side venture in our free time real life problems and
issues simply get in the way. This case is no different.

Around a week ago my wife got really sick. We took her to the hospital
where they gave her some antibiotics, and strict orders to stay in bed
for seven to ten days until she felt well enough to get out of bed.
As a result I've had to take over all of the house hold duties such as
cooking, cleaning, and doing simple tasks like fetching my wife a
glass of water when she needs to take a pill etc. The end result of
all of this is absolutely no time to work on MOTA at all. So our beta
18 release schedule is pretty much shot to pieces.

So here is the thing. I could go ahead and release beta 18 now, as is,
but it isn't complete so to speak. Most of the upgrades are done,
level 1 has been updated, but we don't yet have level 2 added to the
demo. So it is really your choice if you want to wait a few days for
me to add level 2 to the game, when I have the time to do so, or if
you would rather just have the beta now without level 2. Any thoughts?

Sincerely,
Thomas Ward
President of USA Games Interactive
