I know that given CCP's track record, heck, ANY software company's track record, a hard date for the winter release is public relations suicide.

But can CCP give us a general month they are shooting for, and how much before TQ release we could see the changes on Sisi? I know some things are appearing on Sisi now, but I remember the lead time we had on Sisi when Apochrypha came out. My crew spent a month on Sisi testing everything we could about wh's.

I would love to see the changes for af's, hybrids, et al proposed by Hilmar be given the same lead time, and I would love to know what month the official T1 release is being targeted for.

Will this be a staged rollout like Incursions?

Before we can elaborate on long term effect we will need further internal planning to take place and we will keep you updated on that progress. However the short term effect of this refocus will be evident immediately in dev-blogs coming out in the next days and weeks and in actual changes hitting our test servers. Right now we're going to give you a high level sneak peek of the winter 2011 expansion. The specific deployment date has not been set in stone but it will be on Tranquility well before Christmas.


So... wait for the blogs and you will know when they know.
