Any bets on when the next patch is finished and rolling?

I say it's out on test server by Friday, but we don't see it live before next Monday.

EDIT: funny enough, that article linked below was nuked by gossip
:grin:
GM_Savant lays the law down pre-patch52 (re: that arty-hack cheat disseminated by Violence)
    Looks like Savant is hinting there's alot of cheaters counting on the fact if there's enough of them using the h@xx0rz, they won't be banned...heh.

Sh*t, just implement the "win game" modx and the'll all be happy. My question to Savant is WHY turn yourself in AND tell on others too? i thought you were so damn smart Savant that you had logs of who theses ppl are? Is this so called game we play that is so devoid of commods and equipment punishment for the cheaters, while legit players wait months for you guys to fix it? to think of all the bitching and whining about "Matt" farms. now come all the comments about what "he" would do, about what "they" will do about cheating ina game that dont offer JACK at the moment. gimmie a damn break! i been part of this community since day one of release, i seen it all man! was the suggestion about "Hyperdrive" just a cover for ND inability to combat the hacks? is ND's theory "if we cant beat em, join em?" Pppffffhhhttt! bring the game back to pre-no equipment days and we may have a chance to combat the ppl who do cheat. otherwise cut ur losses ND and pull the G*ddamn plug... what ND should do is when the next series of this game comes out, let the ppl who just HAVE to be uber fly as the conflux... at least then i'll know who the assholes are and have a legit reason to blast them into next week.

Anyways, Unlike Greenfleas, i consider levelling up to be not applicable to my enjoyment of the game...unlike some people who think if they aren't in their Nix/Phoon/Tens going at mach5 with their hair on fire, the game sucks. lol

I noticed a lot of people arguing that ND would risk loosing a lot of income if they ban these cheaters. In my opinion, they have more to loose if they don't ban them.

A large majority of the people who play online games are honest and play for the challenge - especially pvp oriented games. Yes, these folks constitute the bulk of the player base, and these are the players they risk loosing if ND does treat cheaters with a firm hand.

Not to mention, they are counting on a lot of new subscriptions with the release of episode 2. (Hell, that's why I've come out of retirement.) But if potential pilots read that they will be at a permanant disadvantage due to powergaming uber exploiting dirtbags, they will probably choose to hold on to their $10 a month and hope that Earth & Beyond will have a more even play field.

OH, btw, good to be back, Anarchy got old fast =)

Actually, ND had nothing to do with the decision. This is how I feel situations like this need to be delt with. Why? Because we've all made mistakes. We all screw up once in awhile. Life is full of harsh realities as it is, why shouldn't someone be given a second chance if they made a mistake?

There's an old saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Everyone deserves a second chance, as long as it's clear that there isn't a third chance. We've seen other companies who ban without prejudice and the resentment that builds in the community.

It boils down to this: If you're a compassionate leader, then no one questions you when you need to lay down the law -- and that's how I see things here. I'm showing you that I can have compassion and forgive a single mistake, but should it happen ever again, then there is no turning back at that point.

~ Savant.
