Was the ever announced here? If so, show me a link and I'll happily drop it. I'm looking for something other than the initial promise from 2016 where they said all expansions would always be on time.Why is the burden of proof on Stef here?
Not on Stef. I'm being put through the wringer because I said I was worried development of new features had stopped and renaissance wouldn't be available on time, and other people here are telling me "No, Adam, it's everywhere! Everyone knew it was coming!" and I have seen nothing of that sort. I started this thread with nothing but praise for the updates I've seen recently (exactly the post you linked) and said that if these had been in development for a while that it would have been nice to hear about it. If there has been anything from Shuffleit (not other people who don't represent Shuffleit) to indicate that progress would be coming then I'd adjust what I said but right now I see no reason to question the assumption that progress might have completely stopped.
A main selling point in giving the license to him was that expansions would arrive on time. He has delivered with Empires / second edition and Nocturne. Why should this time be different?
Where is anyone asking publicly or doubting that it would be the case before you bring that up here?
... I mean, there are no posts indicating any progress for this year before the release I'm talking about, so I wouldn't bother looking for them if I were you. There were two times
that people asked for an update and the response from Shuffleit wasn't exactly promising (from my brief search). This is what I have to go off of.
It's true that maybe I'm the first one to publicly speculate that new features or Renaissance wouldn't be happening but from my position that's a reasonable assumption to make and it wouldn't have even entered my mind if there had been some communication at all from Shuffleit to say that they were still around and planned to make improvements.
People seem to think that I hate Shuffleit and I want it to fail. This could not be farther from the case (this is because I personally believe that if Shuffleit does fail there won't be any online Dominion at all) and I'd like for someone to point to anything I've ever said anywhere to that effect. Let's just look at facts and evidence here and let's use that to try and make the user experience for Shuffleit's software better. We have a better time playing, and more people will use it which means Shuffleit can be more successful. Everyone wins. I'm not interested in anything else.
Honestly, why is it such a debate that they communicate more? What we have gotten is not close to what it should be and I don't see anyone arguing otherwise. Can there just be more of that in the future? No dry spells where no new features for several months?
