Nobody asked for an update once an hour 24/7, and we certainly aren't asking for updates about every bowel movement. I know this is hard for the more argumentative among you to believe, but there actually is some middle ground.
And I have news for you, testing an alpha isn't a privilege. They asked for us to take a leap of faith in them and pay them in advance while we play a buggy game, and we did. The least we could get in return is a few sentences once week, using whatever medium tickles them. They tweeted yesterday that an update was coming out today? Congratulations. We've gone weeks being left completely in the dark. I've been in plenty of alphas, including ones for indie titles from small developers, and I've never been left in the dark like this. Not even remotely close.
The bottom line is if we've gone a full month between alphas and we *still* have no idea what they've been working on or what to expect, any reasonable person would agree that communication needs to be vastly improved.
If you can't understand that, then don't even waste your time with a counter post.
Gosh! Finally! Thanks for that.
