Either way, the alphas you speak of are carried out by companies, not by mods. I don't understand the frustration to be honest, it's common place for mods to release in alpha, they don't have a paid crew to test their game. So we get to enjoy it (hopefully) early, and help them get it straight. I'd say it's pretty straight forward why this mod was released in alpha, and I think it's going just fine. As it sits it's not that hard to get everything you want, so losing it sometimes brings some life back into the game.
its very easy... if i start to like a game, i hate to see it going down because of bad decisions and asshattery of the people who originally made it.
I honor the devs that do it for free, and still have the time for at least a weekly hotfix. i admit that are not much, but in my opinion, thats the thin line you have to walk when you develop a videogame, and want to to be regarded as "professionals"
You know... the people you think of there inhuman because of the amount and good quality they do... just look at WIZZARD... he is kinda of a dev, even tho this is no videogame (or is it?
) and he is like a frickin Robot!

Okay, we will. Most of us understand that this game "isn't ready" yet. It's quite obvious. Anyways, this game at first was meant for a couple servers and about a hundred players. Now there's well over 100,000 players playing at once at a given time. The people who make this game had no idea it was going to be such a success.
Thats what i call flexibility, keeping your info up to date, and thinking in advance... oh well
