    ROFLMAO got to love those “Weekly Features”. Georgeson needs to blow some more smoke it is getting pretty thin.

    It may not be much, but considering they’re trying to put at least something out weekly it’s better than nothing.

    Every bad weekly feature they add is time they didn’t spend on a larger update (which sadly was the whole point). They really are getting bad though. Adding a few stats to the UI and some temp buffs does not keep people entertained.

    The “larger update” is being worked on a lot. It’s not hard to delegate people to different tasks while maintaining the required amount of time on larger projects.

    As it reads. “Weekly Feature” is exactly that.. not a “Weekly Game/Content update”.

    I am all for having cool features added weekly and after looking at some of the new merchant items they provided I am eager to try them out.

    Have to admit, I was hoping for something more content oriented. :\

      Contested highkeep could be a lot of fun. Is it just high keep or pickclaw combined?

        Last rumor Id heard was high keep and pick claw as one zone.

          This would be consistent with what they have done every other time.
