    I never got how anyone would want to sign such restrictive contracts. The whole way these restrictions are imposed to me clearly indicates that MA is terrified of something. Why would you want to sign with people like that?

    Soooo predictions for State of the Universe 2018?

    I'm tempted to predict we simply won't get one. Else I'm going with mid february

  5. Wait wait wait, this is about State of the Universe 2017 and I guess we can now safely say that 2017 is over.

    SoOoooOooooo...

    Even if MindArk had very low expecations this time, they managed to deliver even less. -_-

    1 year later... neither the promised CLD update got delivered, Compet died and might get a relaunch (one day) and never got released on IOS. We got a 35 pec deed payout...and MindArk still thinks VR is interesting...and keeps talking about it, since their plans to fully support Oculus Rift in may 2015. But no visible progress and we are drifitng away with DX9, not seeing any graphical improvements either. Beyond underwhelming ? History repeating ?

    What could one expect from a State of the Universe 2018 ? Except for other things that wil never arrive ?

    I'm starting to think I should have gone with my first hunch... we won't get one. Maybe their fed up with us raking them about it and all the inaccurate previous ones and have simply given up posting them from now on.

    From actual 2017 SoTU:

    They also mentioned the Battle Simulator which, to be fair, was actually delivered. So, as you say, they mentioned 4 things planned, delivered 1 of them, then went silent, then farted up a (soon to be forgotten) ICO smell.

    Looking back at my predictions following last year's SoTU:

    I can see it is indeed possible they thought about space (but did nothing - other than file my support tickets behind the back of the fridge... with the mouldy pasta). They also continued clearly to think about VR (the netmeeting thingy), even talked of sorting out the directX 9 blocker, but again, did nothing. I don't know if they made the fort lahar style event functionality to PP's I get the impression they are sworn to secrecy regarding such things.

    I guess they did work on performance some last year which is something. Looking back at this though... I'm really starting to think it is very unlikely we will see a SoTU 2018.

  8. I admit it was fun to participate in Fort Lahar and it was a step into the right direction...then again, there is lots of room for improvements...the atmosphere is missing...its boring after the 3rd try.

    And yes, they delivered something called "battle simulator", which noone asked for and which is nothing else but a beacon mission.
    And I think its very badly (ugly/boring) designed and got just added to remove PEDs from our (others) cards. :)
