What happened to "it will be released when its done" approach? I honestly prefer it to rushed games. Take your time devs.
I guess most of forum users would like to see beta3a and beta4. But I'm afraid more people, who rarely come here, just want to play it ASAP. And obviously most of them just want to play a "fresh" game, not a well balanced game. They want big ships, they want big fireworks, and they want to cry "Wooooo it's cool!", and then they turn to their preferred games: StarCraft, WarCraft III, online pokers and so. At least that's what I observed in my local game forums.
And considering the dev guys, they are under the pressure of cost and sales income and all kinds of finacial figures, and maybe some of them even have already turned to next game development. So more beta is obviously a problem of them.
And everyone of us know two important points: 1) we only found one Blizzard in the whole world; and 2) unfortunately IronClad is not Blizzard.
So the only hope is, we can get some updates later, within two months or so. Maybe we can even get some important changes (like Gauss Rail Gun can slow down the enemy, or Guidance becomes an AoE skill).
