this griping happens before every friggin seasonal and then when it drops all the bozos shut up again. it's almost like they think their griping actually motivates dan to drop the seasonal. here's a pro tip .. it fracking doesn't. but i predict the same negative ninnies will pop up their heads the last week of june again before elios drops ...

most times, the lepus seasonal drops a couple weeks before easter and runs until easter monday. if lepus drops this weeks and then runs 3 weeks until the end of the month, i'm not going to quibble about matching the easter dates of past years.


Well, during 8 years seasonals started with the same pattern of time. This year, Qpedd started 5 days later and Lepus didn´t start. As i said, i saw this pattern in many games, all closed now. It´s not my cry: it´s a fact.

But maybe Rnagy is right and it´s only a temporal affair. We hope for this.

Even if he does catch him, what has he really accomplished? :lol:

I disagree with Senator. Players of this game have a right to complain. It's not just "a few days" of delays in releasing seasonals. We still don't have a 9-year reward, and the person with the highest Prismatic upgrade said it has been broken for months as well. This has been the norm for quite some time now. If Dan is having personal issues, that is understandable; however, it would be nice if he took a second to drop a message in the forums or in game on occasion to keep us updated on the status of the game and other content. Heck, at they very least, provide a response to the support tickets.

oh, i think it's fine to complain about the delay. what i find stupid is saying the game is 'dying' when the dev is clearly having issues in real life. this is a one.man shop, and it's not even his day job.

is Dan maybe losing interest ? maybe, but it's probably still a lucrative sideline which doesn't require too much maintenance at this point. but i don't blame Dan for not responding on the forum where 90% of the posters only seem to be interested in hacking him off.

tl,dr: complain all you want about the game .. but stop ascribing ulterior motives to the dev.

It is even more funny to be in denial that the game is NOT dying. I do not think it is ulterior motives i think it is a decade old format that was not hugely popular to begin with and has a small cult audience and group of players. With once populated legions now in the 30-50 numbers and the over whelming amount of inactives only someone in denial would not see that in terms of usage and income the game , by definition is dying.

If Dan just never responded again and walked away i would totally understand. am not lodging complaints, just stating observations.

No one is a bozo for having an opinion and because you do not subscribe to the opinion does not make you any better in anyway. Just a guy with an opinion. Or, by your astute observations, a bozo with an opinion.

Kind of sucks at current situation....has anyone confirmed that Dan is having hard times and will be back? I have no problem if an event is delayed, as long as they happen and the game is not forgotten

Has anyone contacted Spock ? Of all people (except for Dan himself) he should know the most about this delay I am assuming.

He always starts a topic 2 or 3 days before an event.

Yes, that is how this thread started.

I reached out to him through email last week and he responded to me and apprised me of his current situation. Out of respect for Dan, I purposefully left out further details he shared in email but he did say that he plans to release seasonal updates soon.

I would if I had any contact info for him... anyone else been in correspondence with Spock outside of the forum before?

Thank you for the update Ryan.

As for Spock's information I do not even know what his ship name is. There are at least 4 spocks I saw in active legions so there might be more than 4 or his ship name might not even have "Spock" in it.

One of our legion mates claimed to find a Lepus Bio nest scanning....So Senator can have something to do for three weeks.

And the event started.
With that, Rnagy version seems to be confirmed (and i must apologize, since doubted).
So, the only thing that remains is desire Dan´s personal affairs come to a happy end.

Oh, i´m already worried for the actual game state, but at least the confirmation of the Rnagy version give some air to the option that the delays are only for that personal affairs, not and abandoning followed by the shutdown.

As many of the end of times prophets when their prophecies became #&$#, I will proceed to hide under a rock.

I know what you know, which is nothing. FWIW, I pick when I post my informational threads.

Post Re: Update on Dan
Every time I've written to Dan to make him aware of a specific issue, I've also asked him to give his long time players the courtesy of an announced end date if he's lost interest in the game, rather than just letting GL fall apart and die. It was after about three of those (sent to make him aware of a specific problem) that I got a reply from him about the wiki and forum coming back up within 48 hours, and explaining why he hasn't been as attentive to GL as he used to be.

As for some people getting replies, and others never getting them, for once I agree with Senatorhung about the #$&*@ and criticism. Imagine you were grieving the loss of a parent and had 4k e-mails in your InBox. Which ones do you pick to read and perhaps reply to? The people who always, always #$&*@ and moan, call you names, then demand you do something for them because they spent $50 a few years ago? Or the ones who are polite, get to the point and describe the issue in a useful way, and always thank you for giving them an awesome game?
