It is to be expected. It takes time to gather, consolidate, sort and organize info from all the 150 employees actively working on this expansion. (+/- 149)


Even if this were the case, clearly they wouldn't all be working directly under one person. Each group would have a lead/manager whose job is to consolidate, sort and organize that info in parallel to the actual work being done.

I think that "(+/- 149)" made clear that was tongue in cheek...
Linkedin lists them in the 11-50 employee range and I think long ago on some business presentation slide sheets they listed themselves as 25 employees total; no idea if/how that changed since then, but I doubt they have enough devs to need more than 1 or 2 such managers. ;)


edit: but based on recent practice, I guess it will be at least another raid before the ducks are in a row for update and patch notes release. (I just kind of expect Google Play to inform me of a new SH update before I see patch notes now)
as of 2016-09-11: Player level: 44, City: Eolythes, Blueprints: 517, Mastered: 419, Crafted: 78.61K
(except for tier 1 and some tier 2 artifacts mostly running my shop/gearing self sufficient)

Evidence suggests no one is working on the game.

Even if this were the case, clearly they wouldn't all be working directly under one person. Each group would have a lead/manager whose job is to consolidate, sort and organize that info in parallel to the actual work being done. Similarly these group leads/managers would report to other people in the top hierarchy. Consolidating all this information shouldn't take more than one or two days...Such information is usually gathered before starting a project, during milestones of a project and much ahead of project deadlines. If slip-ups happen, features will be removed or deadlines will be pushed forward and CC can simply give us a timeline to solve this lack of information...


As Shiroe correctly guessed it was not meant as a serious defense of CC. Rather a bitter remark. Sorry to confuse you my friend.

Still getting those Ducks in a row folks. Some of the guy's I need to talk with/communicate directly have been out on their summer vacation and others on business trips.

Still having folks work on things and again (I've mentioned this in the past) some changes have been being made internally which delays things large and small sadly.

Any ETA on ducks or just the usual "soon"?

Each week a member of my city quits because of "lack of updates" (thankfully they tell us why before going, instead of just disappearing). Talking about people who have played more than 6 months (some who spend money on those packages frequently). Some say they might be back after an enticing update, others say they've given up entirely.

I can't blame them, not much you can do now. Economy has gone so downhill, with lack of gem stimulation (or maybe its lack of chest supply.. whatever, not here to discuss it). Primal/mystic chest prices so absurd, they cant unlock anything new through casual game play, and spend about 2-4 weeks per bp.
I wait patiently, and just master all the things I have unlocked, while mythicalizing my quest gear. Luckily I unlocked a lot of things, otherwise I would've been bored and quit too sadly.

Certainly hopeful on the next update, since we have been promised over a year. Just sad to see a person disappear every week for reasons that could've been avoided.
