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:http://forum.schicksalsklinge.com/index.php?page=Board&boardID=93
And I will keep you updated on a daily base untill all is done and good.
