Estimated time till mta:dm!

Recommended Posts

Please note that this is NOT when mta:dm will be released but an ESTIMATE based on what we are given.

Inspired by mdm13:

forget it... I think they will advance to beta stages by the end of december and release it early April

People got confused when Race went from beta to semi-public beta (horrible name), so for DM we changed the name from beta to alpha. DM is currently in alpha stage and will progress to a beta with more players, chosen by invitation. Then it will enter Release Candidate (RC) stage when it is considered to ready for release. RC stage should be very short.

:? I definitely didnt get the part on semi public / public beta.

Seemed like an extension of the same thing xD

Good to hear, I was hoping to be wrong. So in that case how long was race in beta or 'semi-public beta'?

I like your estimation. The team have been working on it for like, five or six months now, and it seems closer to a release. Time really flies by.

Please remember that no-one in this forum, except for QA team members and developers, have any idea of how when it's going to be released, as been said in the first post.

We've always maintained a "it's done when it's done"-policy on this (unlike commercial projects). We do plan our features and changes, but it's very hard to tell how long each feature will take, since not everyone is around all the time.

We're pretty far ahead. Although, not everything is done yet.

Can't remember... I think it was about 2-3 weeks.

Im starting to regret this, after thinking about it and like IJs said its just silly trying to determine when something is released without actually knowing about it. DUH!! Dont know what I was thinking. Sorry. Maybe someone on the team could provide an actual estimate and then bumb it back each time something goes wrong so we can get an idea.

Surely if you took the proper precautions something like this can be adverted.

Every development has its haults throughout the progress of its specific creation, even this modification has no exception. We all want to see this released as soon as possible, but with the discussing of dates just leads to all different kinds of rumors and the public becoming more anxious then their previous standard.

I can totally respect that, thanks for letting me know.
