Re: 4.9.6. Beta II

That was a general example of messed up behavior which is very similar to what you often do.
My messed up behavior which I often do... Ok.
Although it's honestly quite depressing that I occasionally get this kind of statements on the Bk forum, while I am NEVER treated the same way at any other mod forums.. for CoH2 as an example.
Maybe it's just a bad luck though. But I will just get over it anyway!
"For our comfort"? How exactely? we make beta3 - bug reports will come, we'll need to fix them. We make official release, bug reports will come, we'll need to fix them. It makes absolutely no difference if the fixed stuff gets released as "4.9.6. beta 3" or "4.9.6" or "4.9.7" it is just another release of the same stuff.
I think it makes difference, a beta isn't official... So it's rather fine if it would have some errors. But if such errors which could have been easily avoided were found on the official release, then it would be a shame.. specifically after all this time waiting!
For example, when u released the 2nd beta.. the grey colors were still there. A similar thing could happen with the official release... How would u feel about it then?
Not relevant who replies to whom or not. Point was that you ask me, if I say "yes" you're happy. If I say "no", you go to other people to try to get your "yes" and thus bypass me. Why don't you go to Wolf right away if you don't settle with the answer I give you?
You said Pzblitz is "probably" blocking me, and I already responded that one... And about Wolf; he just replied over there.. while I wonder about your intentions of bringing this up in the first place, but I wasn't seeking your "yes" about it. in fact, I was pretty sure there isn't going to be a 3rd beta since the beginning.. that's why I managed to ask u.
As I only wanted to get a confirmation for my expectations! However, I guess I just clearly settled my opinion to the public. As I also requested for a 3rd beta... Based on the previous experience with 4.9.0 which I believe was quite terrible.
And I guess I have achieved some of my goals already! As I have at least pointed out how you shouldn't risk the final release.
Or become reckless enough to officially release a non-tested version. Just because u apparently "hate" to take my opinion into consideration!
Now if any serious bugs were discovered upon the official release... People are going to remember this dialogue very well.
Have we ever said there will be no further patches or why do you sound so surprised?
No, look; I wanted to say this for a long time now...
Even if u announce for an upcoming patch. I am afraid less, and less beta-testers would be available... Generally less people would be interested.. people just don't have any further patience anymore. This is probably going to be your last patch, actually. At least.. most likely, even I wouldn't be here anymore.
So as Wolf said - there won't be another beta. If there are problems, we'll fix them in another patch.
But well, good luck with that though.
