I know that you have all been subjected to a fair amount of frustration from the client base (us) ever since the announcement of the 3rd edition. Please bare in mind that it is absolutely not personal.
I would personally like to thank you all for spending much time and effort upon this edition of the game. I am sure that it has not been easy to try and develop a system that would surpass or be on par with the 2nd edition. Even though there seems to be much hate going around on the subject, I believe it to be simply a shock reaction to what we have seen from a lot of the current players (this also including me) and find it a bit unwarranted. Criticism is all good and well but I believe a bit of positive reinforcement also helps a long way.
For all the naysayers, I understand and do feel your concerns. However, I believe it would be wise to simply see the final product and suggest afterwards what we would like to see in the game. That way, we convey our message much more clearly and it can be much more easily understood by the development team.
Once again, I would like to thank the developers on the effort they have spent designing the 3rd edtiion. Please do not feel discouraged from what you may have seen or heard. Even if we do gripe, we are always happy to see some people putting in effort to try and better what we all love and enjoy.
