APRIL APPROACHES WITH ALL THE SUBLTY OF A RABID WOLVERINE WEARING A CLOWN HAT.

Not by April, sorry. Real life has intruded on both Slit and myself, reducing time we have been able to spend working on this.

Right now it feels more like Spring 2016 (which runs to June 21, not to put a date on it). I've also decided to push out some of the architectural features I wanted to have in the new code, in order to get this running sooner (we'll just have to roll them in behind the scenes after launch with a simpler initial design and implementation).

The disappoint is real.

But the hope for spring sustains me.

THEN I'LL BE BURNT OUT FOR THE REAL THING.

Plus, we're more about propaganda and content creation then, ya know, playing the game.

Hey, haven't gotten to check in on NBT in a while. Just catching up and wanted to say thank you for all the work you are putting into it!

Yes, I know, and I am mired in the middle of moving and spending work weeks and weekends split between two different states.

Right now the first thing that would come online would be tracker automation for Sector Assaults since that is what we are playtesting right now.

A question I have, that wasn't an issue previously -- how much time do teams (such as ISEN) that are participating in MWOWC, have for something like NBT? I know the first round is like 80 matches over the rest of this year, which sounds to me like a scheduling nightmare, but... So I am curious what effect MWOWC would have on the level of NBT participation right now?

Well, to be frank (which I hate to be because the Franks were a royal pain in the ass - well until Charlomange died..), does it matter how much MWOWC is going to effect anything if NBT isn't released any time soon?

Yeah, if you began your NBT season right now it would be nightmarish; people are scrambling all over the place to make it work. But, if you gave it a month or two it'd be a bit different. Many of the teams will likely have withdrawn by then and some who enjoyed a taste of comp but want something different than PGI's brand of it might be interested in heading over to NBT.

As far as ISEN goes we're aggressively scheduling and playing matches. At the moment we've played more matches than anyone and it is my intention to be done with tournament extremely early. Aiming for the end of July.

Also - Faction Warfare is a total disaster right now.

The people, they want NBT.

OK, well, I guess we will have to give the people what they want...

That's the spirit!

Units and individuals want to be involved in something like NBT. End game content in MWO is lacking, Faction Warfare is currently a bust, and there really is only one decent tournament series (MRBC). If you get NBT spiff'd up and coded out.. I foresee a lot interest in it.

The Runes have Spoken and they do not lie.

TBH NBT was the most fun I've ever had in MWO, but I agree with Dane. Waiting right now is a good thing with MWOWC running. Can't wait to help you guys knock the rust off and chase the bugs out when its "ready" though!

Your Alpha brought a lot of units to the league. But I feel like with the amount of interest and dissatisfaction out there right now.. this time you'd have entire factions come to play the league.
