http://forums.unknownworlds.com/discussion/134346/what-is-releasing-in-27-days-speculation-thread/p1

I felt the need to create a new thread.
Partly because the first one derailed and we didn't get an answer there.
Partly because the first thread doesn't get pushed up to the front, even if you post there. COINCIDENCE?!

Now it's one month and a half later and we still don't know what it is. Is it the Combat reveal?

I really don't think that was meant for Combat, cause I was waiting on something too!

So is it a hoax?
Or is Jibrail just badly informed? But the deadline doesn't match with PAX...

Some kind of clarification would be nice...
I might note that I'm not trying to hype anything here. I'm just genuinely interested. (I know that I sound different.)

    It's not the combat reveal, and not a hoax. UWE has had bad luck releasing patches at the end of the week... so I'd guess if anything was coming soon, it wouldn't be until Monday at the earliest. Purely a guess though...

    Your first point answered the second point. It was hopelessly derailed so I sunk it. Yup, big conspiracy. When it's ready, it will be revealed. I will lock or sink this topic if it goes down the same route.

    It's not a hoax. There were some significant delays and the original schedule was aggressive to say the least. We're still hoping to get this out fairly soon, but I can't really say any more than that.

    So since my guess was some kind of standalone mod support (not just for combat) and thats no what it it, let me take another guess :D

    I say its going to be the new skill rating system combined with improvements to matchmaking

    Either that OR

    Well, I didn't even know it's possible to sink a thread like this. Thanks for this information.

    I ( and Decoy ) have already stated in the other topic that the 27 day thing is not Combat.

    Hello forum archaeologists, I just want to let you know that there was a time where these threads didn't get buried for future generations to discover them, this is a recent technology and we're getting used to it. Please forgive us!

    Guys, guys, the 27 day thing is when marines finally get tazors and gorges can grow combustible lemons.

    Its ok. I already guessed it and was correct. I guessed that there would be a 2d ns2 platforming game at the 27 day mark, and there was. Look back in those two threads; it is true.
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    I am happy patiently waiting for you guys to get it right, both UWE and the community members who give their free time to help development of NS2.

    In terms of handling the community relations, a lot of the recent drama could have been mitigated by saying something along the lines of: "The '27 days' was for release of the next patch (details will be announced at a later date), but we were unable to meet this informal deadline and will release the patch as soon as it is ready."

    So much this.

    I think he's implying you're an undiscovered homosexual. And you're gay for RooBubba.

    I got this one figured out guys. Pay attention: Easter is coming soon, therefore the announcement is the second coming of Christ.

    I don't get it... do they have to generate a new steam id for every revision of the game, or are they talking about an entirely different game, and the "@NS2" is unrelated?

    Also: HE SAID "LAUNCH PAD"!!!!! Tool improvements/bug fixes???????? (Shut up! Let me have my false-hope!)
