Title: Quick update for communication's sake
Post by: DrewUniverse on August 02, 2016, 09:26:40 PM
I'm more backed-up than I expected, so here's a list of things you can expect from me in the next 24 hours or less. Yes, hold me to that timeframe. I'll be covering most of this when I get home tonight, but I figure I owe you guys a quick update in the meantime.




I'll be talking about:


- What I'll be doing to help give more frequent updates and communication between Yodomare and the community.


- Several Draft balance changes are going to be shared with you guys before they go live - such as removing Hehkeem and E-parasite from command picks. Oh, and we're fixing Engine of Reincarnation. #ClearingUpOldBusiness


- Ranked seasons (part 1)


- Massive bug hunt and extermination - "The only good bug is a dead bug"


- Rebellion Wave 2 information

- Ranked seasons (part 1)

I swear if you reset the leaderboard without giving me all the prizes in the universe I swear i will utter the words 'i knew it' and 'typical lightmare' and I will walk around the house in a huff for half a day. So be warned!

He deserves blue rectangles AND green triangles.

Let's be honest here. He's a good bear.

I couldn't care less. Civ 5 was garbage and space spinoff even more so.
Title: Re: Quick update for communication's sake
Post by: Klassick on August 03, 2016, 06:20:20 PM
I didn't play this one (V) so, can't tell about it, but, Civ VI was E3 2016 best PC Game... I'll give it a chance for sure.

So he officially has 20minutes to give us this good news...  Man I hate it when people make me wait, especially when they are the ones who gave the timeline in the first place. Its when someone says they will meet you somewhere at 5 and dont show up until 6, and you like "Dude, you're to one who told me to be here at 5, I could have easily came at 6..."

No offense drew, but seriously >__<

Check the timestamp on his post again. It's still 2 hrs 20 minutes

I will, indeed, be playing C6 but....it's not a card game lol. There are great games that come out every single day, not like they're all competing against each other and no one only plays one single game forever.

Unless you're a Chess Wizard....then that's likely all you play.

You'll play C6 for a few days, then an update comes to IW you like so you'll play that, then mix them up. Nothing to worry about.

Why did you bother setting this deadline for yourself if you weren't gonna be able to meet it?

Let the nerd rage rise!! he must pay for his transgressions...

I understand he was pretty excited about the news and wanted to tease it before he put it out, but if your going to make us excited with a tease like this you had better be extremely punctual. Its like waking up on Christmas mourning and your parents saying you cant open the gift until nighttime.. I mean yeah you waited all year for this so what is another day, but at the same time I waited all year for this and now i gotta wait another day!

Never set a hard deadline, unless under very concrete circumstances.

Strongly recommend, next time, just saying "Tomorrow." Hard Deadlines are very rarely set for the right reasons.

Everything's being written up now. For those asking about keeping to the 24 hour timeframe I set, I apologize, I got a serious RL delay for a few hours. Teremus is right in that I should refrain from exact deadlines being public and stick to something more general, if at all. It was either that or say nothing and leave you all wondering, so it's a bit of a lose-lose situation I guess.

Nonetheless, This is a pretty meaty set of updates in the weekly post and I think it will speak for itself. Covers a lot of things players have been wondering about.

You do realise that as community manager posting these posts is your REAL LIFE. Its your job lol. I would never tell my boss, 'yea I didnt do my job because something came up in real life'.

And no Teremus is not right on this (love you moose! bless me with cheese hallowed be thy antlers), you should not refrain from deadlines, what you should do is MEET THEM. You gave yourself 24 hours! You said something happened delaying you for a few... so lets be generous and say that a few = 4 leaving you still 20 hours. It took me 1 hour to write a 1500 article the other day and that included spending some time sorting through every card in the game. So either the post should have been done with 19 hours to spare or im expecting the post is gonna be 'meaty' to the tune of 30,000 words. And lets not forget that just because you said it would be finished in the next 24 hours doesn't mean thats all the time you had. You had a hell of a lot more than 24 hours, its a weekly post not a daily post.

You asked us to hold you to it... how. Everytime you miss a deadline your response is 'yea I shouldn't have deadlines', instead of 'yea I should do my job'. I find that bizarre.

However im looking forward to the actual post itself.

Hey Bear, thanks for the reply. I agree with most of your statement, but ultimately I conveyed the wrong message - which is still a problem of its own. I know I need to do my job, this isn't about that for me, it's about how I do it without fail.


Anyway, this is what I have so far and I am still going with other threads that need to link with this one:

Wow, what a turn of events, im normally the one bashing the powers that be while moose and friends are defending them...

That being said lets cut the guy some slack. I think he got excited when going over this new big patch/change and he really wanted us to know that something was in the works. If anything him giving a timeframe and missing it only shows how excited he was for him to make such a silly mistake. I can forgive a mistake like this because it is good mannered and at the end of the day we are only waiting a few more hours to see what LM/Yodo are cooking up for us.

Am I upset that I am waiting a few extra hours... ofcourse, but if the news is as exciting as he makes it seem it may all be worth it. We will just have to wait and see for ourselves.

Another tease, god dammit drew :( how can i read this... its too small!

Post by: Weak_Wolf on August 04, 2016, 03:24:41 AM
Only posting this to check timestamps between now and when i last posted, i think IW time at the top might be wrong, no way its been an hour.

It has indeed been an hour... your killing me drew... Was it posted in a different section? When its posted can you put a link in this thread incase I dont see it?
Title: Re: Quick update for communication's sake
Post by: ORISOLVE on August 04, 2016, 04:06:28 AM
How could you miss a 24 hour deadline you set yourself? Unless LM/Yodo1 didn't provide you the information? There is no excuse when it is your job. The only reasonable excuse is if you got hit by a car, in a coma, and now in a hospital. If you were conscious in any way, then this weekly post should have been done.

How are we going to hold you to do this now? As a community we will decide your punishment.

Option 1: You donate 24 hours worth of pay to a Charity of your choice.
Option 2: Video of you dancing naked on the sidewalk with nothing but a bra and a pair of underwear. (Public shaming)

I wasn't looking for an excuse, Orisolve. I think you missed that part.

I'll go with something similar to #2, minus the nudity, in my apartment.
