If I remember correctly, the tentative beta 4 release date was August 16th. However, I know that software development, like most projects in life, can take a little longer than expected. Therefore, I am wondering: is this still the planned release date, or is it a bit too optimistic?
I must say I'm excited by the beta 4 feature list; another thing that got me excited is the AAR from Brad, and in particular the part where he got crushed by what seemed to be a decently composed AI army - is it me, or has the AI learned to make a metaphorical "pointy spear"?
Also, a rumor came to my ear that ZoC trespassers would be kicked back into the nearest town of their empires instead of being teleported to the border - sometimes on the wrong side. If that's the case - that's great news!
Anyway, I'm really excited about this new beta and I can't wait to see it! I know that an ETA won't make it come faster... but is there a rough tentative-maybe-perhaps-ifthestarsareright-ETA?
