    Ahahaha No way.

    So what does it mean? If there is no content, nothing to show on twitch.

    What? How my post is related to ruin someone's vacation? Try to logic.

    I am talking about releasing twitch shows once a month. This was a clear trend. bE simply have nothing to show. Personal goals? Improving the gameplay systems? Yep it's good but without new content the normal development won't be.

  6. Well with a number of dedicated staff positions unavailable, weekly shows had turned into thumb-twiddling bore-fests. I'd rather go to monthly shows and they have stuff to show us, or even month-to-month numbers THEY look at (steamcharts isn't an accurate representation of game health.) Plus watching progress on things like the vehicle rework, the Personal Objectives system, etc would be much better than them sighing and saying "Yup... Its coming, but we don't have anything we can show you yet." for three+ episodes.

    I like to think the devs change religions every month or so. That way they can cash in on all the holidays and say they have to go on vacation.

    Yeah, I think we should perhaps clarify about the different levels of darkness that can occur.
    1. Nothing to report.

      Result: Nothing will be reported, instead of creating fillers like a weekly twitch. There may be cat pictures. We're still communicating in general, ingame activity continues as usual. Development is ongoing.

    2. Business as usual, includes vacations, and other normal stuff.

      Result: Level of communication might fluctuate between weeks, development doesn't stop, we switched to monthly twitch just to have more to show.

    3. Going black in development, to implement something massive like, Unreal Engine upgrade.

      Result: Means no patches as we can't patch during massive upgrades like that. There are campaigns and stuff running still, Objectives as well when they make it in, doesn't affect communications at all.
    Katie going on vacation is of course the most visible, as she handles a lot of the communication and nobody has her mad skillz. Doesn't mean any other part of our operation has stopped. Well, we'll cry for 2 days for sure when she's left us but we'll get over it. The show must go on.
