    While sadened that we wont get to play during the halloween season, I would rather see them open up right then have a rushed opening. It just means it gives us something to look forward to next year :)

    Hi,

    I must say i find this VERY disappointing. Last month in a blog they said

    Now we are told not this month. Not a good way to get started. I know everyone wants it to be perfect but they have been blogging since July. If the game is going to open in beta it is not expected to be perfect. beta is for testing it.

    I am sad as I see people loosing interest all ready before it is even open.

    You know, I watched people play smallworlds, then get bored. left.

    They changed the game, everyone ran back

    They changed it again, everyone ran away

    Holiday items here, everyone is cautiously peeking in on it LOL

    I think I would have to agree with mic here. When the game opens, the interest will be there. Nobody expects beta to be perfect, but it needs to be written to the point where the game feels like it has purpose.

    If VMK didnt have weekend items or specials come out then many probably would have lost interest fast, what good are credits if you can only get the same thing over and over again? Give it some time bug, people will play but after that its up to Elf Island to keep their users on EI and keep them there.

    I only lost interest in SmallWorlds after they stopped updating it.. and when they did.. it seemed too little for the long wait. I rather have new feature being added constantly then a large update.
