The awakening weapons release schedule decision.

1 at a time weekly or bi-weekly instead of all at once.

Which version of bi-weekly though? One every 2 weeks or 2 every week?

Can you actually link me anywhere it's been used in the latter example?

I know it's theoretically possible to use it in that context, but . . .

The only people crying about it are those that played a version they weren't supposed to, got spoiled and then come on here and try to dictate how and when updates are supposed to come.

Can we please all unanimously agree that from now on all the BDO white knights will be called White Warriors even if they play another class so that the third act of this weekly disastrous tragicomical show won't ever be forgotten?

I posted about this in a similar thread.
I'll paste it here so I don't have to type it again.
Below is the aforementioned post, with a few others I've written tacked on to extend the point further.

As someone who works in software professionally, I can say with certainty that delays and miscommunication happen regardless of how prepared the developers think they are. This is likely exasperated by potential miscommunication between the development team in Korea and the localization team in the EU and NA. 

However, they've not asked for extra money for this content, it will be patched in for free, unlike other games that would release this as an adventure pack or ask you to pay for it if you are not there and online at release (ie guild wars 2 and dungeons and dragons online).

Albeit it will not release exactly the way we expected and it likely could have been relayed to us, the players, in a better manner when the hammer came down from Pearl Abyss.The important thing to remember is that the reason for the delay is that the developer delayed and is staggering the releases for a reason. it's not something they just decided on a whim just to spite us. There is likely a development complication that requires more of their attention for localizing the content. I don't know about you guys, but to be honest I'd rather have the content staggered than have buggy releases.

The point is that delays happen during software development and are always a good thing in the long run. Would you have them stay true to their previous statement, include everything all at once, and have it be broken? 
The likely result of that is that everyone would take to the forums, the same as they are now and complain about it being broken.
Software development is actually very difficult, they can't just port it over to our region with a copy/paste operation, it doesn't work that way. 

They are playable in a development build at gamescom, there were most likely bugs discovered during the event and thus triggered the staggering as a result. 
Nothing is ever perfectly finished during these trade shows, see most e3 presentations with live gameplay as an example.
Hosting an event where you can play as all the classes released on the current dev build is a good way to suss out those problems and bring to light problems that were previously unknown to the team.

When i first heard Valk's awakening was delayed i thought "well, its finally time to level an alt"; then i realised you need costumes, weight limit increase... Pearls.

I see the picture now..

Only ever played EU/NA, sorry.

This is content that is a) already done (and has been for nearly 2 years) and b) we paid for with our purchase while other regions did not and c) is paid for in full by the cash shop purchases.

It's most certainly not free, and since it's been done for so long the rest of your argument is completely null and void.

Yes indeed, comparable situation entirely.

And they felt pretty -----ing bad about it even if it's not a comparable situation.

I can't speak for everyone that is Pro-BDO like me, but speaking for myself.......

I saw the announcement and thought "well that was a dumb PR move" and I don't agree with it.

Doesn't mean we are all going to flock to the forums and start ranting about it. And it doesn't mean we all of a sudden hate the game either. Some of us just dont jump our shit once a preliminary announcement is made.

Either way, im going to get my Awakened Weapons on my characters <shrug> I still have grinding and armor to worry about gearing up. Hella other stuff to do in the meantime in game
