ok they are excuses with hard facts behind it. cryptic is not a miracle company. last time I checked Zinc can't walk on water. part of being smart to survive it to cut back on employees, and make the current ones work harder.
Quite right, saying you can't lift a house with your bare arms stating that your arms can't possibly provide that kind of power is an excuse, it's just a proper excuse. I hate it when people keep saying "Stop making excuses like Cryptic doesn't have the money or the time, they're CLEARLY lazy since other games have time and money".
