Setting a target gives you something to miss. Blizzard doesn't set targets, so they're never late. That's all this is. There's overhead and effort involved in communicating with their players that Blizzard doesn't want to shoulder. That's fine with me.(I do wish they'd be honest about it. Not that I think they're actively lying, just using an exceedingly poor rationalization that shouldn't fool anybody who's been around the block with them.)

Rubbish, Blizzard absolutely have internal targets. You have no idea about project management if you really think they work internally via "when it's done". All that phrase means is that they will slip the release back to work on serious bugs and won't just shove crap out the door like certain other game companies.Additionally constantly having to alter your project schedule is only a sign of bad project management. There is always delays and mistakes that need fixing which is why you schedule in that time and don't do a barebones 20 hour work day schedule.The main thing to be said for CCP is that their forum mods have the disposition of Nazi's and so the retards on the EvE forums are largely held in check and don't run the place like on Blizzes forums. That leads to the theorycrafting community actually giving worthwhile feedback on the official forums, and having devs directly communicate with players.
