I wanted to let you all know that I am taking some long awaited time off, just two weeks, starting today. It's been a long epic adventure since the last time I took a vacation, and at this point, its definitely needed. I'll be back re-energized and refreshed to continue strengthening and growing the C&C community and showing our continued support.
Producer Greg Kasavin, Amer Ajami, and maybe even Jimtern and EA Smudge will be filling my shoes on the message boards while I am gone. MichaelBrobst and Cypher will be moderating as usual, so please show them your respect in my absence )
All the pertinent top issues of patch 1.05 are being discussed on our development team including the Mastermind/Mothership strategy that seems to be the top issue. We're completely aware. As usual, its imperative that you take time getting used to the patch and really explore all the new strategic avenues it has opened up. We've only been live for 3 days, so be sure you're playing a lot!
Some quick notes on concerns on your mind I am sure:
-I will still be on the boards a bit until this Wednesday for critical matters and to help with whatever I can from outside the office. After Wednesday, I will return from my mission on June 25th.
-There will be a ladder reset as promised, however, we are discussing what stats should be reset and want to ensure its done right. Our popular thinking is to reset your ladder ranking and ladder stats, but not touch your overall stats. In the end, we feel the community cares most about the public appearance of your ladder ranking and stats. Do not worry, we will communicate this to you asap. With regards to the beginning of our ladder season, we are currently scoping this out with prizes and sponsors and rules and will keep you posted on the official start date.
-We have partnered with the GGL and The Army for a major C&C 3 online tournament with thousands of dollars in cash prizes. Registration will be happening on or around June 14th. Stay tuned to our official site or www.ggl.com for more info. And don't forget, you still have time to qualify for the World Cyber Games. Head over to their site at www. worldcybergames.com for more info.
-Patch 1.06 could potentially be a quick patch turnaround, its intended to continue improving disconnect reporting so we can accurately suspend disconnecting violators. We will have more info about that very soon so you're aware of our upcoming patch plans. We are also under a watchful eye for cheaters and will do our best to accurately suspend and disable accounts as needed for those caught repeatedly cheating.
-Will determine the C&C "show yourself" contest before I leave
Thanks again everyone for your continued support and as Producer Greg said, ensuring we are patching C&C 3 to the highest standards of the communities desires. It'll be tough being away for two weeks from my second family )...but this APOC will be re- energized and fired up like never before when I return.
Please don't flame me for taking time off, hehe
Every day is community day,
