A while back there was an announcement saying that there would be an Engineering Report released this past week.

As far as I can see that has not occurred. So what happened? Season Six get in the way? Somebody just forget? Did it not get finished in time? Or did it not have anything worthwhile to say? I'm not really angry, I'm just so sick of all the speculation I really wanted to read what it had to say.

Did I just miss it? If not where is it?

THERE IS NO BATHROOM- I mean, ENGINEERING REPORT!

There's an Ask Cryptic coming soon, so who knows. It might come out around that time, or not. I honestly never expected one to come out anyway.

Maybe they handed the task off to be compiled by the 700-day vet reward android variants?

It appears that the Devs are on something of a communications lock down.

They announced the engineering report sometime after the rumors of the communications lock down started. Many (including myself) hoped this meant the end of the Com Lock. I think it's most likely something else.

I thought they were more competent than that?

that depends on who "they" refers to? (man that was a loaded question!)

I'm not surprised its not out, but I really can't put a finger on why, maybe because it just seems to fit how things have been going for them as of late. All I know is something is not right, and I'm waiting for it to drop. Time is not on their side as well.

If something, you want badly, is not on the list it doesn't mean we don't work on it. We are totally working on it or talking about it, just forgot to add.

Every Engineering report held about the same amount of truth as this one.

See though Pendra, even with such a cynical take on them, I really do want guys like Dan Stahl and Al Rivera and even on down the totem pole to people like Borticus periodically asked to wax poetic about what they'd want if they were playing this game.

NOT because I think they can necessarily make that happen.

But because I think there's cognitive dissonance there, between what they want and what they have to do. And we have to keep reminding the devs that what THEY want and what THEY do are not the same because that's really our best hope at any kind of course corrections for the game, to keep the developers just dissatisfied enough with the difference between their jobs and what they'd want as a player that they will constantly strive to change their job. That is really the one thing that I think has kept this game alive, the fact that developers seemed to be able to tap into a fan level of their psyche that wasn't always satisfied with what the developer side was doing or was asked to do.

And if that goes away, that's when there's nothing left of sufficient value in the game.
