      Ugh... just stop, I'm sympathetic to your argument but you're starting to come off as extraordinarily whiney.

      Can't wait for real details on the update though.

      But not literally, I actually can wait, because I'm a well-rounded Starmatador.

      I'm looking forward to more details but I won't be watching a stream to find out lol. Unless the stream is all about the new update I don't really have time to sift. I'd rather just wait for a release and patch notes. I do have hopes though that this will make ship building more fun but the meta I'm sure will need some testing and tweaking before its compelling.

      I look forward to trying out the new system. Nothing beats being able to compare them yourself.

      Hope all is well with him.

      I'm eager to try out the new setup but I'll be patient. Thanks again for the box-load of awesome.

      Agreed, I can concur as I have school and work most of my day, so I'd like to just get the info in a matter of speaking: 'In a small Bite that could be thrown like a candy into my mouth and can be easily swallowed whole.'. Not 'Here lemme cram 3 hours of footage into your mouth and hope you can swallow it whole'.

      You see the difference here community?

      I get your argument man, just providing a resource. Again, jumping around a two hour video is tedious, I get that. No need to get insulting.

      Can't you watch the fucking VOD when you're able to? Are you incapable of doing such a simple task? It's the same thing. They also said they would release a video and a thread explaining the new power system.

      I honestly don't get why people are arguing over this. It's just the dev stream; we still have to wait for the actual release so we too can play with it. If you can't watch the whole stream (my time is limited as well), plenty of more concise info will follow shortly afterwards. The community is good for that sort of thing.

      I work 2nd shift, so watching the stream isn't an option for me as well, but I can wait until we get the cliff note version :-p. Plus, it will be in the dev version of Starmade for a month or so, possibly longer, before it hits the rest of us. I'm looking forward to playing with the new systems, but by the time it gets to the servers I play on there will be plenty of information available.

      You know the hype is real when people complain that they don't get the news for another day. How important will the first 20-30 mins be?

      I hope a very important explosion onboard a ship equipped with the new power system happens. That would be hilarious :P

      No, I can't. As I said, I am busy 13 hours a day. And I'm sure as hell not wasting 2-3 hours of my day off watching a stream with 5 minutes of actual information in it.
      This isn't JUST about this update. Every week we have a stream and most of those never get anything written up about them at all. This one is the exception.
      Have you already forgotten how we had to pester Criss for two months just to get a couple paragraphs going over what was being built during the streams during that time?

      We need to hold Schine accountable for providing information about the game to their entire community, not just the people who are lucky enough to have to free time to watch the streams. We need weekly dev blogs back, even if they're just a couple of paragraphs explaining what assets were worked on that week.

      I see no reason at all for the moderators to permit this whining bitchfest.

      I see no reason why that '2 cents' should be heard if that is your attitude.

      Come on guys. This is a video game being developed by a small design team on their free time with minimal outside funding; not a 20 million dollar grant being written by an executive committee for a medical research facility.

      The info is coming. Yes; right now it's unrefined and time consuming to absorb but that will change as the release date draws closer. Patience is definitely a virtue under the current circumstances.

      Also; Hold Schine accountable? Did I really just read this? :confused:

      It's a "whining bitch fest" to ask that Schine properly inform the community of the future of the game?

      The only bitching I see here is people crying about how mean we are to Schine to ask that one of the multiple PR guys actually does their job.

      You need to be a 20 million dollar project to give a few paragraphs about what your 6 or so man team did for an entire week?

      Here, how about this. I've said this before, so this is nothing new. Give me the PR job. I think I, with my incredibly busy schedule, could do a better job of writing regular weekly dev blogs than the existing people in charge of keeping the community up to date. Consider this my second official application, Schine. Either prove you can do your jobs or let someone else try it.

      Well I guess you won't even have the time to play so why care.
      Anyway there'll be summaries.

      That 'three hour stream', butts into the PLAYTIME of that other 11 hours that Lecic or any other working player that has a job. Does that make sense?
