You're making incorrect statements about what I had said. My point was that it would have been good to release a full list of features and then post weekly detailed posts as Scirra has been doing. Not have people wait week after week to be able to have a general idea of C3's overall features & capabilities. I never said the detailed blog posts were a bad thing.

You also give the impression I said teasing was a bad thing, which I didn't . I just criticised the way it had been managed. As you mention, "It's not to uncommon to start teasing 6 months out", yet as you also mention, "People in the forum have been begging for clues and information about C3 for over a year". You're basically proving my point, the teasing started too early and then waited too long to start publishing a few insights to get people excited.

Anyway, things are as they are now and we just have to wait and see what C3 will offer when we get our hands on it.


I said that detailed blog posts are a good thing, as a separate thought apart from what you said. It's something I added to the point that they are handling it very well. We disagree on your point that they are being "childish."

When do you think they started "teasing?" From what I noticed, they announced there would be fewer updates to C2 because they were shifting their focus to developing C3. It got people excited, but it wasn't a tease. It was an explanation. People would ask direct questions about C3 in the forums, and they gave answers from time to time, but I wouldn't consider that teasing either. I don't know when you think the "teasing" started. I think we both agree that teasing something too soon is bad thing, but I think we might disagree when that actually started.

I would also like to point out that we agree with more things than what we disagree upon. I don't really think this is an argument to be won. It might just be a difference of opinion. You expressed your opinion and I expressed mine.

What a lot of people forget, is that we chose not to tease too early because it puts our revenue at risk. If we teased 6 months ahead of time and sales dried up as everyone waited for C3, we'd be screwed. We decided to take the more risk averse route.

That's understandable.
