Guys, take a seat for a second and imagine this would be a video game. Pressed for an early release we would get Immortal Army right now and ASAP, current state of development. An unfinished patchwork of barely tested concepts thrown together to have something to release. An Infinity Faction as if being made by EA & Bioware. Oh and unlike a video game it would not be patched for quite some time. Imagine the reaction of people who are screaming bloody murder for an early release right now. You would never see the end of their whining. Ignore them, there is no way to satisfy their shortsighted demands. Stop this madness and settle for the best option right now - grudginly waiting for IA to run it's whole development cycle. Even if it takes the bigger part of another year. This won't be much fun, but Vanilla ist still very serviceable. And I for one expect IA (and possibly White Banner) Closed Battle lists to be much better than what we've seen for Sval. Let's hope for a nice bandaid we'll get to rip off in time. We will not be happy with the results otherwise. Appreciate they want to do this properly although it is quite inconventient for now. While we're at it, it is time to get over the JSA split. It was a seperate decision and ultimately has nothing to do with us anymore. Let it be water under the bridge.
