The guys are actually arriving *this* Wednesday, they may or may not be on their flight yet. I'm in SA at the moment and doing some cat herding with our artists while working on important background tasks which eventually players of all levels will appreciate in a noticeable way (yeah, teasing stuff so generically is cheeky and worn by now, but whatevs
). But yeah, no worries, we probably should've been more explicit about the change in release patterns, I've mostly been lurking this past week or so.
With regards to this Friday, then, I don't know whether or not there will be a patch. The others may still be too puggled to do anything and the work I've been doing is probably gonna be held in reserve. But don't worry too much either way, nothing majorly untoward has happened to us.
