Thanks, it's lovely to have my project taken swipes at on my birthday. You've just made my day ... not. Obviously you don't understand the meaning of BETA, either that or Google has spoiled you.

Eh - those who can't, criticize.

First, it's not a comment on the game itself, which is fine. It's a comment on the community around it, which was nigh-nonexistent the last time I gave the game a go. Which seems kind of strange, given the free advertising the project got on slashdot.

Second, I didn't know it was your birthday, and I apologize.

Third, I've deleted the one liner about the game.

I understand that a project is only as good as the community that supports it. I've gone to great lengths to keep our small pool of players together with the latest release; which sees people playing on the server around 25% of the day (higher on weekends, up to 50%).

I feel I must apologize too for coming off so brash, it's just a sore point for us because too many people have said to me "Your game is crap, there's nobody playing it." and as a result I jump off the deep end.

Over the last three years I've invested well over 8000 hours in the project, and it is FAR from finished yet - most people are waiting for the Coop/Campaigns - that's when things will get good. I just feel at this point we need more GOOD publicity than bad to help the community grow, so I keep an eye on the health of the internet's view of it and adjust accordingly.

Thanks for being so understanding, and again, sorry for the O.P. I made.
