I would like to take a moment to briefly explain the reasoning behind the delay of the August premium card. I understand that I said we would be sure to have the cards up on the first every month, however in certain situations, it's more beneficial to wait (if we even have the choice not to), as was the case this month.
I've been out of town for band camp (my last one :,( ) and nearly hospitalized from dehydration when I got back on the 3rd, so I haven't been able to post until today. Dagnor had also decided to delay the card one or two days in order to lob it in with the next big updates -- game invites. However, after I tested it, we found a couple issues that needed refining. The patch will be released this week, and a follow-up patch adding a couple more features will be released shortly afterwards
As far as I'm aware, the august premium patch will also include a few minor updates to the friends system as well, however that may wait until the follow-up patch, so don't quote me on that part.
As much as we hate delaying things or upsetting the community, the game is
still in a constructive beta, so we have to make the best decisions we can on a case by case basis. But luckily, unlike almost every other game out there, every post of every thread gets read by me, so you will always have your voice heard!
So always feel free to provide us feedback, whether it be your thoughts on the updates, the way we handle things, and anything else you can think of. More voices are always welcome!
