While razor thin at this point, yes I do. Frankly I have taken precautions in game to be able to step away any moment. I'm at the point where unless NQ shapes up and finally starts showing they are actually serious about their community and their game I may move away.. And some will rejoice no doubt if that happens I think a big difference is that I have always realized that what NQ was promising and saying they wanted to achieve would not be possible for them and so my expectations, while still feeling good about the game, were lower and I guess more realistic than a lot of other players. To see them even manage to not meet my expectations I guess is a disappointment in itself. I want to be clear here, I actually think there is a some pretty smart and passionate people working at NQ and there is a lot of them with a fair amount of understanding of the business and what should happen. It is IMO those in middle and upper management positions that are pretty much clueless about what needs to happen and what needs to change. And that is where the "we heard you but we're not listening" comes from. Unless these people come to their senses and start changing or step aside for those that can accomplish change to take over, NQ will not be abel to pulll this one out of the fire. Frankly, I think NQ should drop the Paris office and focus on/relocate to Montreal entirely. It may hurt in the short term but it will give the company and the game a chance going forward. As I expect they are pretty strapped for cash by now, something will need to give and completely moving to one location, which then logically would be Montreal, makes actual sense.. Quote and quite honestly: what do you expect from the mission system? Honestly? not much. Everything here once more points at an idea from one person thinking this is the one mechanic that will save the game. And it won't as there is no framework to support the feature which in itself could be great just like the schematics system is fine but without the mechanics to feed into such a system (and yes, as is the case in EVE where they got the idea from). What NQ seems to want to do is very much like the jobs board in Eco, it works really well there because the game actually drives and promotes player interaction and co-operation at every level, not shove "you _will_ work in/as a group/org, we will nerf your options and buff org options until you do" down the players throats the way NQ is currently doing in DU. NQ will once again rush this, release a badly tested patch with a broken/half done feature which needs a lot of work and in the process they wil break more stuff as well since there is a lot of stuff that is broken in game and just covered up by band aids.
