Yes, he did. His comments should be the end to the conversation, period. Those that have been around FOF for sometime understand how Jim shares his developments....

...oh wait, he really doesn't. He is usually to busy and focused on working.

No dont know Jim. No don't know FOF.

And closed communication lines doesn't make me want to change my "not knowing".

A dev diary posting would at most take 30-60 minutes twice a month. But it would inspire a new fan base.

You seem pretty defensive and hostile. Suggesting that open communication is not working. That's a huge part of any work when their is a fan base involved.

You can have the best product ever but good open communication and advertisement and hype will increase sales further. That's just good business.

Besides OOTP being involved in a football game there is not 1 thing on this forum that would attract a new customer that has never heard of FOF.

There is literally nothing known about the game. How could nothing attract new customers?

I just happened to see oh OOTP has a football IP all let me go check out it. Oh there is zero info about it from the dev and producers. Well that sucks.

Sorry but lack of communication for a new IP at OTTP D is just bad business. Plain and simple.

This seems to be a common theme in several post. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that the reason there are no updates is because there is nothing to update yet. Giving the "Masses" an update that says there is nothing to update a few times a month seems futile to me.Everyone has their own preferences, for me Waiting for something meaningful in an update is much more important than insisting that we be told there is nothing new to update frequently . If someone wants to discount the Company because they feel slighted on the information side, I guess that is their privilege as a consumer.

But that's impossible. To say there's nothing to update says there's no work being done. As long as work is being done there is something to update us with. Even if it's miniscule.

I have to believe that this company has been around long enough to know when something pertaining to a developing game is significant enough to warrant an update, WE WILL get an update. This post does nothing but prove my point that

No dont know Jim. No don't know FOF.
- Then don't judge him.

And closed communication lines doesn't make me want to change my "not knowing".
- Probably not, just keeps you asking the same question over and over.

A dev diary posting would at most take 30-60 minutes twice a month. But it would inspire a new fan base.
- As many others have noted, when there is enough to offer from their point they will. Let the work continue, if you lose interest, move on. I guarantee that once it's released you will be back.

You seem pretty defensive and hostile. Suggesting that open communication is not working. That's a huge part of any work when their is a fan base involved.
- Hostile? Not at all. Tired though of those that form judgement about things they know nothing about, either here or elsewhere in life.

You can have the best product ever but good open communication and advertisement and hype will increase sales further. That's just good business.
- Like OOTP will need any help in advertising this product once it is ready.

Besides OOTP being involved in a football game there is not 1 thing on this forum that would attract a new customer that has never heard of FOF.
- Then you have missed out. The is plenty of pre-existing FOF data which appears to be the foundation for the game. Look it up.

There is literally nothing known about the game. How could nothing attract new customers?
- same as above.

I just happened to see oh OOTP has a football IP all let me go check out it. Oh there is zero info about it from the dev and producers. Well that sucks.
- Your loss, you're not helping yourself here.

Sorry but lack of communication for a new IP at OTTP D is just bad business. Plain and simple.
- So what business plans have you published? Plain and simple, OOTP has history with product, FOF has history with product. Spend some time looking elsewhere and less complaining here and who knows what you may learn.

I would prefer they would set expectations of when a new update will be posted. At my work, I can’t say “I will update you when there is something to report”. Everyone wants an actual date or timeframe. “I will update you by the end of...” (day, week, month, qtr, year). I just feel something like that would help. Just set expectations which would allow everyone to look forward to that date and hearing an update.

Agreed, deadlines need to be set

This thread is pointless since the power(s) that be seem to be saying that nothing will be said to keep customers informed until that power(s) decide it's necessary. No word since September? No problem. It seems to be a ludicrous management strategy that can only antagonize the potential customer base. But its their company and their potential customer base. So be it.

I honestly don't even understand the point of this forum. With the devs refusing to divulge even the slightest bit of information, and overzealous mods closing almost every topic for presenting legitimate questions/concerns, a discussion board seems practically useless.
