Dear HWS Community,
it’s the 5th August, it’s the release of Empyrion 1.0 - leaving Early Access, leaving Alpha:
The HWS 13 Release… on 7th August! …
I pushed and pushed but panic mode won: I was not able to finish in time!
You can’t imagine how frustrating and disappointing this is to me but it is just too much…
I really want to deliver an awesome season to you after such a horrible worst HWS 12 season, due Alpha 12 (corrupt database, disconnects, etc.)
That being said: I can’t. I just can’t do the same mistake as I did on 23 June and release something not finished. You deserve much better!
And even though in terms of marketing I really wanted to align HWS 13 with the v1.0, is it really worth? No. I am grateful for such a great community and many told me every time: make it ready instead of a buggy start.
I don’t know how much I am able to complete until Friday but the quality is much much better than right now.
Basically imagine that I prepared for months all bits and pieces but now the final little time is needed to put all those pieces together.
I’m sorry if you are disappointed but hope you can understand.
All the best nevertheless and hope to see you in a great HWS 13!
I will patch to v1.0 now of course. You can play. Many will be confused. Spread the word please.
Nothing changes basically till Friday. See the v1.0 changelog… it’s just a bug fix patch…
HWS 13 has more to offer…
Until then, I just keep the 20% Discount running, reduce my available time even more (Jascha is for longer in vacation and I just can’t keep up with doing so much), please keep testing the new HWS Config and thank you so much for your patience!!
