There was supposed to be news EARLY this year. So....when?

Oh wait, its simply another case of Anet saying one thing and not doing it. PAX would be good for the beta announcement, but I want gameplay mechanics info EARLY this year as promised by Martin. And I swear on my name that if by the end of Q1, (March, aka "early") there is no news, I will make the biggest stink on Anet since the "beta by end of 2008" thing.

EDIT: Correction, I'll give them till 5th Bday of GW. But I don't care how they get it out.

That will be the recomended due date for new info... considering ANET had to rerun Wintersday AND now the Canthan New Year in the same month.  Two of their bigger events of the year.

early this year could mean all the way into March, quit getting your knickers into a twist and grow some patience. You have waited 2 years what is a few more months? :mad:

Its not the waiting longer, It's Anet not delivering on their word as Martin said they would. They've done it before, and I don't think that they should be allowed a pass on misleading or failing to meet the dates and "goals" in terms of their products.

See above. And for the record, they won't care...until I raise hell on Anet's overall incompetency/track record and spread it to others outside of my circle not to buy Anet products now or in the future due to lousy support and misleading CR.

I totally agree, it's not the waiting that bothers me it's that more often then not they DO NOT follow through. It really steams me sometimes, I wish they were better at keeping their word. I'm not going to quit playing GW1 and I'll be waiting for GW2 beta with open arms but for the love of god can A-Net ever do anything on time or at least not screw it up the first time (Winters Day)?

QFT, I'm in full agreement.

You can spread your ideas to not buy GW2 all you want.. but that didn't dispel people from buying LFD2, so it's not really a big dent in Anet's side. Not hating, just saying.

I don't have a problem waiting, I have waited for info for GW2 for a long time.. and if Martin/Regina doesn't release information this month or next month, etc, doesn't bother me. Maybe that's just me though, I had a blast playing Guild Wars and will in GW2, no matter when it comes out.

They never gave an exact date, they just said early part of 2010. They could wait until june if they wanted to and still make the " Early Half ." Quit gettin' yer panties in a bunch and bite the bullet.

There's no point in debating what early 2010 means, because it's purposely ambiguous in order to give themselves a massive loophole if they need it.  Just like a two year delay isn't really a delay since they never stated an exact release date...

I don't expect anything big in February, i.e. new trailer or lots of gameplay info, but it would be nice if Anet did a couple of interviews once in a while and sneak one new fact into each one like they did after the release of the first trailer when there seemed to be a new interview everyday.

You need to relax a little.

As others have said, they stated gameplay information would start coming out early this year. 'Early this year' does not mean January, or February. It could be March... It could even be April. That statement was intentionally vague, to give them the flexibility to work around it. Perhaps if it gets to May and we've still not heard a peep from them on mechanics then you might have a reason to object.

Your complaints sound even more hollow given Martin and Regina's recent activity on this forum. Sure, they haven't dropped any bombshells, but there's been a steady stream of bits and pieces. Questions are being answered.

With that, I think this little derailment is done.
Got a question? Feel free to drop me a PM.
