I recall the Assistant Producer of an early MMOG (Airwarrior, if any of you kids know your internet history) proclaiming on the forums that he could everyone laid and they would still find room to complain loudly and at length about the experience. (FWIW, the standard reply to queries about when an upcoming patch was going to be released was 'Two Weeks'. )It's an eternal existential CS dilemma - announce the patch and upset people when the date slips, or don't and upset them when it arrives. I'm going to say that there is no perfect way to handle updates within the community. You can't make everyone happy, and some people, I am convinced, are dead set against being happy. Myself, I'm pretty happy with Blizz's efforts.
