I really don't know. Maybe the only programmer that new it was killed in a freak accident involving the cup-board in the kitchen and an assimilated tribble and left behind no comments or notes on how to do it.
Based on information provided by Heretic, it may have been other programmers that took him out in his sleep.

Weren't they doing that about 20 months ago? Or did they say that again recently?

I think this is the third time they've said it :p

But this latest one was recent.

It seems incredible to think that their engine can't have multiple spawn points. I'm pretty sure that can't be true since some missions have multiple spawn points. but Ker'rat did remain broken for the last 2 years. Dan Stahl said he wanted to nuke it from orbit. But it seems to me that it wouldn't have been that hard to fix the problems with it if they'd made it a priority. The two biggest problems were lack of spawn points and borg ships that went inside the geometry. Some better collision detection should have fixed the latter.

I had to laugh at the second part of the post. You're right on as usual.

As for the subject of the post, the open pvp patrols, they put them aside when they put everything else aside when they decided to go f2p. Maybe since they're partially done they will come back this year as part of the non-FE content Stephen said would be coming.
