Was waiting on this…in the best possible way!
Totally hear ya, and anyone else. Not optimal, but here we are.
3 months, and I only mention that because I was literally counting. Also we are happy that it released after MvCI and not on the same day, because that was an option. We look at all sorts of things, but this window of time between september and end of november is never fun. So would the team have liked this to come out in August like planned? Of course. What about June like initial predictions? Hell yes. Again, here we are, adapting like we always do. Navigating land mines as best we can.
Sounds like our definitions of success are different than yours, or others in the community.
The rest of the post is spot on, but ultimately it comes down to development. I know you know plenty about it, so I will spare your time with any pie analogy, but nothing is as “simple” as you want it to be. Again, get it. Not optimal. We do what we can to push forward with whatever we have available. Doesn’t always make everyone happy. Doesn’t always work out 100% (depending on who you ask).
Wish I could explain more, but simply cannot. Hope this doesn’t come off as a “you’re wrong” type post. It’s not that. Sadly it’s not a full out explanation of things, either. Just a chance to respond to something that deserves a response, no matter how ambiguous it is.
