Apology & next steps
First of all, I am neither a publishers nor a developers spokesman, and my CM times were over a long time ago. I am now speaking as helping hand of the dev team and coordinator of the next patching efforts.

Let me apologize first. It was in no way intended to deliver the game with a load of bugs, glitches and errors, and I fully understand the outrage of every single player who played the game now and stumbled upon problems that shouldn´t be present in ANY released version. There is no time for and no sense in blameshifting, so I can only tell you the truth. We ran during the work on the Day1 patch into unexpected troubles. Severe unexpected troubles that costed many days of otherwise productive bugfixing and optimization work. I know that the release should have been delayed by the lost time (+ an additional security timeframe), but that is not the developers decision.

However, we are tackling the issues fast, and we hit them pretty good. (As former American football champ I like the words "tackling" and "hit" here). This means, we will give you DAILY updates and fixes, and we will adress many of the issues during the next days.

The first patch today will already bring relieve to many of you, and you can look up the plan for the next days here:

And I will keep you updated on a daily base untill all is done and good.

Sounds good - thanks. There are people who want to get this game when it is at a state of excellence, so I really hope you get to that state, as I'd love to play it.

It´s a steep road, but we will go it to the very end.

You must be a Dev, too...

Glad to hear, will give the game another shot in a few weeks when some of the issues have been ironed out. Looking forward to it.

Shouldn't fixing savegame problems be one of the top priorities? Yet I can't find it on the lists

Thank you for the update. Concerning the apparent long road ahead, "May the wind be at your backs." :-)

I found it pretty quick on Version 1.01 Day one patch

So the developers...knew that the game was faulty and released it anyway?

Yeah, but that patch is already live and didn't fix all problems. My save got corrupted after only creating my party and still standing in the temple... no combat at all so far.

Don't try to ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ people and say no one expected it to turn out this way.

You all knew exactly what you were releasing when you did.

Legends of Dawn 2.0 incoming. I'll give it a week before they stop posting here.

Sounds good. At first people react with anger and frustration. When a game is on pre-order it heightens the anticipation. If one is looking forward to playing game for weeks and then the game has a rough start at release people let off steam by venting in these forums. I did. When the dust settled and I calmed down, cooled off and read that all the problems are being looked into and fixed I felt a lot better. Im playing the game now and enjoying it even though it still has issues it brings back fond memories of the original played so long ago. Im keeping it and of course that is my opinion and choice, others may not agree and that is fine. Lessons learnt for the next chapter in the series I guess. :)

I just posted over there concerning post-release support - So the support has stopped already?

I appreciate it. I have no doubt you'll get the game into shape soon enough. People can wait a few more weeks.
